HypnoBirthing and calm birth education

With Amanda Marsden, experienced Nurse and Midwife

Mind to body birth offers you relaxing and stress free antenatal classes in Canberra and surrounds. The education respects the fact that your healthy pregnant body instinctively knows how to birth. Run by an experienced midwife and HypnoBirthing® practitioner, our programs will teach you positive expectancy, falling in love with your baby, preparing mind and body, breastfeeding and getting ready to welcome your baby.

What is HypnoBirthing


HypnoBirthing® teaches you how to influence labour through a range of easily learned techniques that include education, relaxation, breathing techniques, visualisations, affirmations and hypnosis.

Amanda Marsden

Midwife, Nurse & HypnoBirthing® Educator

As a Mother and Midwife working in the world of pregnancy and birthing, I want to share my experience, voice and passion to spread the idea of change to the birthing world.

I am passionate about educating women and families to help them achieve an empowering birthing experience. I enable couples to navigate the hospital system while staying true to their beliefs and birthing dreams. My aim is to work alongside couples to create meaningful transformation and make a difference for generations to come.

I facilitate small groups and private courses for those seeking positive, respectful antenatal classes. My birthing education goes beyond the medicalised, routine-based programs that hospitals offer. Through connection, trust and support I help you unlock your ability to experience a joyful birth.

I am an accredited HypnoBirthing® practitioner through HypnoBirthing® International the Mongan Method. My classes are run in Canberra and the surrounding regional areas.


 I found these classes much more informative and practical than the hospital classes.


Nadia & Adam

With the knowledge from the classes, both myself and my husband were confident about birthing naturally without pain relief. Tested and proven!


I'll be honest, I was a bit skeptical about HypnoBirthing. After the most incredible birthing experience, I gladly admit how wrong I was!
