Your body, Your birth, Your choice
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a logical, practical, evidence-based antenatal preparation that will provide you with the tools to achieve a calm, comfortable and positive birth.
Most women have some degree of anxiety or fear about birth, this is the product of years of storing up negative information about childbirth. This fear can play a significant role at the time of the birth and it will directly affect the way that their body functions and their birth unfolds.
-Where the mind leads the body will follow-
Hypnosis is widely used to solve some unwanted habits like smoking, biting nails or helping with phobias such as flying or being in public.
Hypnobirthing uses the same techniques (suggestions, positive reinforcement, visualisations) to help you to overcome any fears you might have about childbirth while building your confidence, helping your body to unlock its natural ability of giving birth in a calm and comfortable way.
Hypnobirthing will also show you how to navigate the maternity system so you can make your own informed decisions in labour and birth.
Hypnobirthing will support you in whatever path your birth might take.

About Positive Mama
Giving birth can be one of the most empowering experiences in women's life, my mission is to help them to achieve it.
I'm Andrea Halvorsen, a certified KG Hypnobirthing teacher and laboratory technician with several years of experience in clinical laboratories and mother of three.
I’m a science person, that’s why Hypnobirthing ticked all the boxes for me:
Hypnobirthing is about body functions and the power that our mind has over them.
I am talking about hormones, muscles and the way our bodies are perfectly designed to give birth.
A mother to three wonderful girls, I’ve been through three different births: medicated, non medicated but traumatic and a blissful Hypnobirthing with my third. I wish I had come across Hypnobirthing earlier but I am grateful that I had the chance to experience such an empowering birth.
The birth experience is a memory that stays with you and your baby forever, that is why I'm a fervent believer that every mother, partner and baby deserves a positive birth experience.
My classes blend all the information of an antenatal course with the benefits of the hypnobirthing techniques, providing you with the tools to achieve a birth experience that will leave you feeling empowered.
Get ready to birth your baby your way.
