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.

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 fears...

Thoughts like...

⚠ I'm afraid of losing “control"
⚠ I am afraid of coping with the pain
⚠ I am afraid of babies head tearing me
⚠ Antenatal appointments feel stressful - maybe something IS “wrong”!?
⚠ I am afraid of loss and grief
⚠ I am afraid of birthing on my back, with interventions happening to me, out of my control, with no supporter nearby

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 your supporters' anxieties, are VERY important - they contribute to physical tension in your body.

Let's work together to address and solve these major barriers to birthing.

How will our work together look?


Choose your Month

Each new group begins on the first Tuesday of each new month.

Check Available Months

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 four weeks. This intensive approach is especially transformative and bonding for us all. Sessions are a nice, easy to manage, one and a half hours.
The time ZOOOOMS by - literally!

The 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.


Never Miss a Thing

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!


Rest assured, the Psyched for Birth program covers all the key areas:

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

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.


A little about me...

I love my wrinkles and grey hairs - they remind me how far I've come!

I went into my first birth just assuming that a midwife would teach me and guide me to allow birth. But it was too late when I presented - already panicking and fighting against my own body. In hindsight, I had a lot of factors that could easily have been resolved with great, private, birth education.

That birth wasn’t joyful or necessarily “positive” and I quickly realised the hospital/government course had not prepared me at all!

Years later, as a psychology graduate, counsellor, and hypnotherapist, I came across Hypnobirthing training for my own professional development and was MIND BLOWN at the content I had MISSED out on.

From that moment onwards, I threw myself passionately into specialising as a Private Birth Educator - honing and refining Hypnobirthing for my clients needs.

Fast forward 13 years and I've enjoyed educating over 1,000 families as well as attending many births as a Birth Doula, and active committee member of the Doula Network Association.

Further, I have deeply enjoyed building and running a local, successful, Birth Community Project! #newcastlebirthmovement

Now, for 2024, I am excited to release my own unique, radically awesome, online Hypnobirthing: “Psyched For Birth”!

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.

Will this be for me?

Psyched For Birth is for women and supporters who say:

Yes, I like to hear helpful, realistic truths

Yes, I would enjoying falling in love with birth and womens' birthing bodies

Yes, I want to hear about empowering, amazing feats of instinct

Yes, I desire the latest evidence based, birth knowledge and tips, tools, and learnings.

Yes, I want permission to let go, birth messy, and be loved and accepted during the process.

Yes, I have a partner or supporter who is scared and “doesn't want to see me in pain”.

Yes, I wish to experience birth as POSITIVE, no matter what interventions may or may not be in the journey

We are not for:

Participants who would prefer to avoid the necessary, but challenging, topics
Participants not ready to explore their fears
Women searching for a one-size-fits-all solution.
Partners stuck on the idea that their woman is weak and needs rescuing
People that can't bring open-mindedness and curiosity to the group setting

Final ponderings...

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 :)
