Meet Your Educator, Natalie Meade (GradDipC, GradDipPsyc, GradDipEd, BSc (Hons), CCB, CH)


Hi, my name is Natalie Meade. I love humans, birth, training and educating, AND, I LOVE the way birth becomes more pleasurable, fun and special for the humans I work with.

You're in Great Company.


See what parents are saying about working with Nat:

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

Arnie

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

Lisa

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!

Sally Gosling

As baby grows, it is normal to have worries and thoughts popping up:

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??

Your fears and anxieties need to be listened to, your brain is bringing things to you - for great reasons!

Ignored fears bring tightness to your body for birth. Let's work together to resolve their barriers to birthing - BEFORE labour begins.

How we prepare together...

Zoom Room Action

Once your month begins, you'll jump into the zoom room with myself and your group and we will get together every Tues and Wed night for three weeks. As a bonus, the following week, we have a get together for a birth games night and a graduation party night!!! The 'two nights in a row' approach is especially transformative and bonding for us all. You'll love how it all 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 will have a 'circle vibe', (it will just look like a ‘rectangle-circle’ on Zoom!). Our Zoom experience transforms into an excellent learning format as 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.

Catch Up Anytime

For anyone who needs to miss a session - all participants have access to prerecorded 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

I am passionate about revolutionising birth for families to be healing and positive. Towards this goal, parents have fulltime access to communicate via their groups' private messenger thread. Stay in touch with myself (at anytime, as often as you desire) and the group, for homework reminders, ongoing questions, follow up recommendations and birth and baby updates!

You Have Arrived

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.

A little about Me...

Down to earth, friendly and caring.

"Hi, my name is Natalie Meade. I love birth and I love families passion, love and big feelings as birth approaches and 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 is you, you are in thr right place!

Personally, I am super-birth-wise now...but I used to be naive and full of assumptions. I went into my first birth expecting my midwife to teach me and guide me 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.

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 had 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 many numerous births as a Birth Doula, including being an active committee member of the Doula Network Association.

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

I have even had a healing birth of my second child - with mind blowing, extra learnings!

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

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.

Could "Psyched for Birth" be a good fit for you?

Psyched For Birth is for you, if:

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

You want to hear many, many wonderous things about birth and womens' bodies

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

You'd love to be given full permission to let go and birth messy (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 me in pain”.

You want to experience birth as POSITIVE, no matter what interventions may or may not be needed

Psyched for Birth is not for:

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 make time for 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 :)
