Information, courses, tips and resources to help you experience more of the joy, beauty and love, that is possible, while birthing your baby.

Servicing birth, and beyond.

For a pregnant woman - confidence and support is everything!

Birth Education

BIRTH IS AMAZING – I promise!
But women/families do need good quality information and good support. It is my life passion to support, inform, educate and guide women to have positive birth experiences. The time and energy you invest in your education will reward you for your full lifetime and the next generations too!

Doula Services

A doula is a very special and very helpful part of any woman's birth journey. Others may be stressed out, freaked out or just too rushed or too worried, yet your birth Doula remains steadfast by your side, believing in you and sending you the vibe “you’ve got this”! A birth doula is there for you for the entire journey (pregnancy, birth and postpartum) – she brings birth education and information, she is emotionally supportive, reassuring and calm.

Hypnobirthing Courses

For prIvate, high quality Birth/Parenting Education at an affordable price, you have arrived at the right place. I provide not-for-profit, hypnobirthing courses at Hamilton, Newcastle. Enrol with confidence as you work with one of the very most experienced and qualified hypnobirthing educators in the region. Congratulations on finding my website as the freedom to choose ANY course you want, free of financial stress - is now truly YOURS!

Post-natal support

Birth and recovery is a HUGE thing. Your care provider may give some limited support and information, but it can often be a struggle to get great personal care and help as quickly as you need it. We know the right people to assist you. Ask for referrals, recommendations and ideas at anytime.

Breastfeeding support

First, do everything you can to be educated about the natural physiology of birth and breastfeeding. Then make choices that enhance and fit well with your bodies’ natural hormones and systems and your babies natural instincts for feeding, sucking and sleeping. Personally, I am super glad I persisted with the tough stages of breastfeeding and I was even blessed to experience a four and a half year breastfeeding journey with my final child.

Parenting support

Birth and then advancing onwards to parenting a child is a HUGE thing. Your care provider may give some limited support and information, but it can often be a struggle to get great personal care and help as quickly as you need it. We know the right people to assist you. Ask for referrals, recommendations and ideas at anytime.

Common Questions

How often do you run the courses?

Courses are run very regularly. The best way to keep tabs on this is to check out What's on or follow #newcastlebirthmovement at Social Pages.

Where are the courses held?

All courses currently offered are being held as special fundraising events for the Newcastle Birth Movement Project at Hamilton, NSW

What other services do you offer?

Birth Planning Support, Birth Counselling, Birth Trauma Counselling, One-to-One Birth Courses (for families needing very personalised and tailored care) and Birth Doula Support.

How can I find out more information?

Ring me, text me, email me, message me at socials, drop in to visit me at Hamilton when I am working at the Newcastle Birth Movement. Natalie

How can I book into one of the courses?

Easy Peasy, I use Eventbrite. Once you decide what dates and times suit you, simply click on the "Make a Booking" button at the top of this page and proceed to check out to see if there is a spot available.

What if I can't make it on the day?

For any client that misses a segment of their course I provide private access to special, video materials that cover missed topics. An online video can never be as awesome as face to face interaction learning though so clients do typically prioritise the course over all else.

Why are your birth courses so affordable compared to some other birth courses?

This question is my favourite as it touches on my personal PASSION work. When I was a first time pregnant woman, I set aside the chance to do private birth education assuming it was too expensive or not necessary (after all, I was doing the course run by the hospital, right?!?).

Boy was I WRONG!!!

I later found out the content of such courses and I was instantly in LOVE! Now, I want ALL women and families to be able to afford this great gift and pleasure.

I would recommend The Hunter Birth Education Centre to any prospective parents who want to alleviate the worries of parenthood.
