Wow I learnt so much, so many tips and tools. It was a paradigm shift for myself and my wife.

lisa renee.jpg

You gave me: trust in my body, you gave my hubby: confidence and in-depth understanding of birth.

zoe bagnall.jpg

It's the years of knowledge you have Nat that shine through. You have a calmness but confident way of giving and directing information about birth.

You taught my husband and I how to communicate with each other effectively. We didn't even know we were lacking in that area!

It is normal to have worries and fears:

Thoughts like...

⚠ I am afraid of "the pain"
⚠ I am afraid of losing “control"
⚠ I am afraid of baby loss
⚠ I am afraid of tearing
⚠ I am afraid of "things" from other women's birth stories

You might try to ignore or supress these thoughts or you might successfully quieten them with the excitement of buying a lovely pram or cot…. But deep down, you know you have things to address.

You have a nagging feeling that you have not done the deeper work.

Life is about to change exponentially, and you quietly wonder, am I ready??

Choose your Month

Choose what month works for you!

A new course begins each month, on the first Tuesday Night of the Month.

AVailable months

Zoom Room Action

Jump into the zoom room with myself and your group and we will get together every Tues and Wed night for three weeks. The last week we have two more bonus nights and you are fully graduated!

The 'two nights per week' method is especially transformative and bonding for us all.

You'll love how it flows, other participants give strong, positive feedback on the format.

Sessions are a nice, easy, one and a half hours. The time ZOOOOMS by - literally!


Enjoyable, Fun Vibe

From the moment we begin session one, my priority and skill as a facilitator is to ensure participants are bonded and comfortable together.

We interact with a 'circle vibe' (it will just look like a ‘rectangle-circle’ on Zoom!).

Participants enjoy many chances to share and explore - as an interactive group.


Bonus Time

As a bonus, every session includes a special, optional, thirty-minute Q&A at the end for any couple/parent who is in the mood to ask questions, discuss/explore something important in their lives.

All participants are always welcome to stay for as many of these bonus sessions as they choose.


Access Live Replays

For anyone who misses a session, receives access to prerecorded, interactive group content to watch at their leisure.

The Video content shows other pregnant families learning interactively with me, so it is interesting and engaging to watch.


Ongoing, Steady Support

Parents have fulltime access to communicate with each other, and myself, via your groups' private messenger thread.

Plus, stay in touch with myself privately (at anytime, as often as you desire) via email and text.

At our group messenger thread always easily receive homework reminders, answers to questions, links and recommendations and down the track, birth and baby updates!


You Have Arrived

Imagine breathing a big sigh of relief as you give yourself permission to set aside the overwhelming podcasts and the huge array of reading materials, and instead, work on a personal level, with a caring, wise guide, experienced at meeting you, wherever you are - right now.


Rest assured, the "Psyched for Birth" program covers ALL the key elements:

"Psyched For Birth" gives you all that you need to be reassured, confident, and ready for the birth of your child. We cover key birth, breastfeeding AND parenting wisdoms.

Plus, we ALSO work at a deeper, more satisfying, and much more meaningful, level.

We expertly address the psychology of birth, we normalise, problem solve and explore, fears, worries and concerns, we educate you with solutions for some, and work through and/or, transform/embrace others.

Every little moment of the course was invaluable.

You understand that everyone is going to have a different journey and that the right decision for them will depend on a wide variety of factors, personal and medical.

For my birth, I especially gained from the
breathing techniques,
positive affirmations, and
birthing positions.

After the first 5min phone conversation I felt so supported already. I knew Natalie was the right person for me to start my healing journey.

Get to know your educator..

"Hi, my name is Natalie Meade. I love birth and I love each families' unique passion as they strive to do their very best for their children. Including wanting their child to have a smooth, loving and beautiful entry to the world.

If this describes your family - you are in the right place!

Personally, I used to be naive and full of assumptions. I went into my first birth expecting my midwife to teach me how to allow and embrace birth, but there was no chance, once that labour began (with me totally under-educated), I panicked and spent 23 hours fighting against my own body.

With some lucky factors and circumstances, by miracle, I still had a natural, vaginal birth (more on this in the course).

Years later, as a psychology graduate, counsellor, and hypnotherapist, I came across Hypnobirthing content during my own professional development and was MIND BLOWN at what I'd MISSED out on.

From that moment forward, I threw myself passionately into specialising as a Private Birth Educator - honing and refining Hypnobirthing for my clients needs, over 14 years of experience.

I've now enjoyed educating over 1,000 families, as well as attending births as a Birth Doula, including running Doula Peer Support Groups as an active committee member of the Doula Network Association.

I work regularly educating, supporting births and emotionally supporting thousands more women as a counsellor through the local, community, project that I run, the #NewcastleBirthMovement

I have also experienced what is called a "healing birth" with my second child - packed with mind blowing, bonus learnings! (I share her birth video in the course. an instinctual, naturally cleared, shoulder dystocia birth).

This year, 2024, I am super enjoying presenting my own unique, radically awesome, online-Hypnobirthing: “Psyched For Birth”!

zoe bagnall.jpg

You are a genuine soul, a woman of true wisdom and passion for what you do.

melissa milford.jpg

I love how honest and open discussions are. You always open my mind to thinking about things in different ways, from new perspectives and challenges my current beliefs, which I find so valuable.

Melissa Milford

Your dedication, knowledge, tack, care and diligence were exceptional, and I dare say that your course was single-handedly responsible for adding joy to our lives in my very hormonal and stressful months of pregnancy. My husband and I particularly loved and looked forward to our Sessions with you.

Highly qualified, highly supportive highly informative, respectful, considerate, highly empathetic, genuine care overall. Excellent emotional support

Could "Psyched for Birth" be a great match for you?

Psyched For Birth is for people who:

You want to hear realistic truths - delivered in a positively helpful way

You want to hear the wonderous and surprising things about birth and womens' bodies

You desire the latest evidence based knowledge, tips, tools, and learnings.

You'd love to be given a full blessing to let go and birth messy and wild! (and you want your supporter prepped to love and accept you through the whole journey)

You may have a partner or supporter who is scared and “doesn't want to see you in pain”.

You want to experience birth as POSITIVE, no matter what interventions may or may not become a part of your journey

Psyched for Birth is not suitable for people who:

Participants who would prefer to avoid the necessary, but challenging, topics
Participants not ready to explore their fears
Partners that think their woman is weak and needs rescuing
People not wanting to engage in relationship work, team work, communication work, intimacy and bonding.

For those still reading and pondering....

If you are still reading and have any final questions, I am here. I am responsive and I prioritise time for my clients - birth is important!

Perhaps you are very interested. But like myself, for my first birth, you may be telling yourself that you don’t want to spend too much money right now. Or maybe your medical care provider has gently, or not so gently, nudged you towards their hospital provided course/s.

I wonder if this might be a moment to step into your birthing power….?

‘Stepping into your birthing power’ is how I describe the moment when a woman stops trying to please others, stops following other’s suggestions and goes with exactly what she needs, wants, and desires on an intuitive level.

Maybe, you found this page for a reason :)

Let's chat and let's get you into the Psyched For Birth Zoom Room, very soon!

Warm wishes, Natalie Meade.
