The Unexpectedly Calm Birth of Macy

HypnoBirthing Brisbane stories | Pregnant Possibilities
I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Macy on Sunday and she is a dream! While I really, really wanted to believe in the idea of a somewhat bearable labour with minimal pain prior to the birth I was somewhat skeptical. I remember telling my HypnoBirthing practitioner that my two goals of this labour were to not feel like I wanted to die and not vomit continuously..! Well, not only did I achieve both of those goals, but I also actually enjoyed parts of my labour!!! While I was pre...

The delightful birth of Felix – May 2013

HypnoBirthing baby - Pregnant Possibilities
I was nervous about being induced, as my escalated blood pressure came so unexpected after a very straightforward pregnancy.

The birth of Felix was a delight and I spent a lot of my time in labour feeling either calm, relaxed, excited, or crying with co...

Review of Birth Reborn by Michel Odent

by Bree Taylor Molyneaux I was already a fan of Michel Odent from the many birth videos I have seen him featured on and skim reading this book many years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his book in its entirety, finding it provides a very holistic picture of how Odent came to be the expert on natural birth that he is regarded today and provides a realistic argument for everything that he does – why minimal intervention is used, how the environment of birth is created and supported and mo...

The Birth of Marley – September 2012

We are so lucky to have little Marley Iris who was born on the 7th of September. I was 5 days past my due date.The weekend before I was trying everything to bring her on, but she wasn't ready. The day before she came I told myself that she will come when she is ready and to enjoy the last few days without nappies and no sleep! So it seemed as soon as I relaxed, she decided to come. I woke up on the Thursday with small pains and thought that that could be the start of it all but didn't know...

Natural childbirth: Challenges & solutions in the 21st century

by Bree Taylor Molyneaux Queensland (and Australia) now has the highest caesarean rate in our history;  47.9% in Private Hospitals and 34% in Public Hospitals[1], so the importance of supporting and educating women in birth choices becomes increasingly necessary. As an independent birth educator I hear a vast range of birth stories which make me both cry with joy and shed tears of sadness and frustration. Birth is supposed to be a joyful event, a rite of passage that marks the transition f...
