Due to the current covid-19 pandemic, all group classes are now held online until further notice at the reduced cost of $500.

All hospital classes have been cancelled so this is a fantastic opportunity to prepare for what can still be an amazing birth.

Payment plans are available if you have been affected financially.

My monthly info sessions will also be held online.

Amanda Marsden

Midwife, Nurse & HypnoBirthing® Educator

As a mother and midwife working in the world of pregnancy and birthing, I want to share with you my experience, voice and passion to spread the idea of change to the birthing world.

By exposing as many people as I can to the simple, yet powerful demands on the birthing woman. Couples can spark change with choosing to work with the hospital system rather than against it, whilst keeping with your beliefs and dreams for a phenominal birth experience. Together we can work towards meaningful transformation and making a difference for generations to come.

I facilitate small group and private courses for couples, who are seeking antenatal classes outside of the routine, mundane and medicalised hospital classes have to offer. Through small intimate groups and the connection we form, your journey is underway, and with support you will unlock trust and ability to experience a once in a lifetime 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!
