Hypnobirthing Australia™ Zoom Classes

with Melissa Ayling

What do you think of when you hear the word BIRTH?


That it is a huge unknown?
(What becomes known is the unwanted messages and opinions of others and what we see on movies!)

Does any of this sound like you?

  • There are doubts, anxieties or even fears surrounding birth.
  • You have the desire to birth as naturally as possible and only want a caesarean if it is truly needed.
  • Fears perhaps exist around medical interventions.
  • Your partner is unsure of how to support you.
  • You have given birth before and want a better experience this time.
  • You are having a positive pregnancy experience and want to keep it that way.

Would you love to:

  • Feel positive, confident and prepared towards giving birth?
  • Have your partner feel like they know what they are doing and what their role is?
  • Discover more about what to expect and what is happening inside of your body?
  • Confidently discuss your birth options with your caregiver and be prepared for whatever path your journey may take?
  • Learn coping mechanisms to get you through pregnancy, birth, motherhood and life?
  • Consciously birth your baby into the world?


I have just what you need & I can guide you.

Introducing the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program (brought to you by Melissa Ayling)

About Hypnobirthing
Hypnobirthing is a modern, practical childbirth education program that has a positive approach to labour & birth.

Thanks to state-of-the-art knowledge, support, tools and techniques, hypnobirthing provides mums-to-be how to create & maintain a positive mindset, make wise & informed-choices, prepare their mind and body for birth & everything else they need to know to have a positive birth experience.

Throughout hypnobirthing classes, you’ll learn to:

  • Remain calm and confident throughout birth. You and your birth partner will be educated about how the mind and body works and how the birthing process is designed to unfold.
  • Address the areas that could incite fear and gear your mindset towards positive thoughts, so you can approach your birth with happiness and excitement.
  • Give your partner the opportunity to take on a very important role and have them support you and stay involved every step of the way.
  • Choose supportive caregivers.
  • Research and consider your birthing options. This will empower you and help your caregiver know how they can best support you.
  • Be prepared to calmly meet whatever path your birth may take. Parents can even use these tools and techniques for caesarean births.
  • Prepare for birth just as an athlete trains for an event—you too can train your mind and body for the amazing ‘endurance event’ that you are about to perform. This preparation will give you the confidence and the trust to allow your body to do what it is designed to do.
  • Use proven relaxation tools and techniques to draw about throughout pregnancy and birth.

…No matter whether you fancy a cozy home birth or dream about a natural hospital birth or positive Caesarean birth (Because with the right education and support, all kinds of positive births are possible.)

About Your Practitioner

Hi! If we haven’t yet met, I’m Melissa Ayling an award-winning Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner. And my passion? Sharing the fastest growing education program in Australia.

I offer individual  Zoom classes all in my signature down-to-earth and practical style.

We’ll spend 12 hours together, gaining knowledge, cultivating positivity, learning proven techniques and decision-making tools that will help you to have self-trust and an informed birth experience.

(And, side note: hypnobirthing also encourages a relaxed and confident pregnancy and is a great foundation for positive parenting.)

Your Hypnobirthing Australia™ course investment includes:

  • 12 hours of individual Zoom classes
  • Two Australian birth preparation albums & the Hypnobirthing Australia book – a comprehensive guide packed with additional reading, resource, birth preference samples and home study videos (worth $120)
  • Ongoing personal support – I am always available for ongoing support via email leading up to your birthing date. 

The truth is, the birth journey teaches us LOTS about ourselves–but the overarching lesson?

Nature is FULL of surprises. 

Which means, sometimes no matter how much a mum prepares, birth–just like life–isn’t perfect.

But with hypnobirthing on her side, mums-to-be can begin birthing with an open mind and an open heart, ready to make the very best decisions for the care of herself and her baby.

“Before meeting with Melissa I was quite nervous about giving birth again (to my third baby), particularly the pushing phase. Having spent the time with Melissa I’m now really looking forward to the birth itself and being able to use the hypnobirthing tools I have at my disposal.

I’m far, far more calm and confident about my upcoming birth. I feel like I have a really well equipped toolkit to help me through labour, as well as a good list of things for my birth partner and team to use as well.

Melissa is so passionate yet calm and reaffirming about birth and the miracle that women are! She has a really deep knowledge of the physiology of birth and shares it in such a way as to really help you understand what is going to happen and feel empowered by that understanding.

Having had two babies already I thought I knew most of the physical aspects of birth, but I learned a LOT and it really boosted my confidence.Thank you Melissa you’re an angel! Xxx”

Kristin Westlake, Sydney NSW (Hypnobirthing classes via Zoom

Hypnobirthing really helped throughout our labour. We employed so many of the pain coping techniques and had a relatively quick labour for a first time mother. Unfortunately our daughter was direct OP and 9lb 6oz, so we had a bit of a rough birth. We got there in the end and i’m really glad we attended your classes. Thank you so much for the invaluable hypnobirthing information & the many coping mechanisms you taught us.
Lucy (Midwife) Geraldton, WA

It was such an awesome, calm twin birth and by far the most positive & memorable birth out of all of my 3, I only wish I knew about Hypnobirthing for my other 2. The doctors & midwives were so supportive & were amazed at how relaxed I was & how I progressed so calmly & quietly.

Thanks so much for your guidance and support to work with my body, the contractions were so much more bearable and less intense when I focused on breathing through them without distraction. I LOVE Hypnobirthing!!!

Tammy Green, Geraldton WA

“Hypnobirthing changed everything for me. I am a hypnobirthing junky now. I could have babies every day. Before I was petrified. It changed my life.”
Natalia & Darren Brockman, Geraldton WA

For anyone considering hypnobirthing, I regret not having attended Melissa’s course with my first baby. It helped me so much with my second birth. I found that it gave me strength and belief that it was possible to give birth naturally after a caesarean. If anyone is on the fence and is unsure of whether to go for a natural birth or a caesarean or just want coaching to prepare you for birth- Melissa’s course is amazing.
