Helping parents make conscious and informed decisions surrounding birth and beyond.

What we do

Zen Mama Collective offers childbirth preparation classes designed to provide education, support and guidance for pregnancy, birth and beyond as well as one on one Birth Story Processing Sessions. 

HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education Classes

HypnoBirthing is a comprehensive 5 week program and is the gold standard of childbirth education classes. HypnoBirthing will not only help prepare you and your partner to feel calmer and more confident during pregnancy, labour and post-partum, you will take the skills you learn into life beyond birth. 

Birth Confidence Workshops

This workshop is designed to help you change the way you feel about birth. Are you feeling anxious about birth? This 2 hour workshop is designed to educate and inspire expecting parents with practical information about how they can have a positive and empowering birth experience.

Comfort Measure Techniques for Labour

This workshop is designed to give birthing mothers and their birth partners valuable tools, hands on techniques and information to help labour feel less fearful and more comfortable. This is a great session for birth partners who want to feel more prepared, with practical ways offer to support during labour.

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?

Imagine if…

  • your labour was shorter
  • you feel well informed and empowered to make decisions surrounding birth
  • you are comfortable and relaxed during labour and birth
  • you feel excited and powerful during birth
  • you feel alert and energized after the birth
  • your baby is calmer, more relaxed and feeds well

The overall effect of practicing HypnoBirthing® techniques is that birthing parents are better able to appreciate the benefits of calm, gentle birthing, making the experience a joyful one for mother, baby, and birth companion—benefits that can last a life time.

Contemporary women in our culture hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth, too often associating it with excruciating pain. HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow women to use their natural abilities to bring about safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing.

HypnoBirthing® is the gold standard of childbirth preparation. The course runs over 5 weeks during which time you will learn skills and techniques for a calmer birth experience and will serve you for life beyond.

“Although the popularly desired outcome is ‘healthy mother, healthy baby,’ I think there is room in that equation for ‘happy, non-traumatized, empowered and elated mother and baby.’” – Midwifery Today

INSPIRATION

Here is what other people are saying about Zen Mama Collective.

“Learning to tune out of the world and into your mind and body is something I will take with me, not just for the birth but for life.

We couldn’t have asked for a more relatable, patient and informed teacher.

We will be forever grateful for the gift of hypnobirthing that Kahrina shared with us.”

Laura

“We had a surprise arrival this morning at 2.31am. Master George arrived at 34 weeks, it was a natural, fast and non-traumatic birth at the hospital. Such a blessing attending your course and learning the techniques which I believe really contributed to George's strong health upon arrival and the relaxed and stress free environment that was created during the birth of our son. I felt at ease and ready to work with George and my body to get him here safely. Thank you for all your support”

Stevie

“While a c-section was the last thing I wanted, I felt calm and in control through the whole labour, which I put down to my relaxed state of mind and the hypnobirthing techniques I was able to call upon. I would not have felt as calm and confident about the whole experience had I not done Zen Mama's hypnobirthing course. It was the most beneficial thing I did to prepare me for childbirth.”

Christa

“My waters broke at home and we decided to go to the birth centre. By the time we got to the birth centre I was fully dilated which completely surprised my midwife as much as it did us because we were so calm. I spent a little under three hours in the birthing suite, it was calm and I breathed through the whole birth without requiring gas or other assistance. I just wanted to say thanks again for giving us the tools to have an amazingly calm and empowered birth.”

Rachael

“It was not the birth I had visualised but I absolutely loved the experience and stayed calm and relaxed the whole time. I know it's 100% because of all the things I learnt from you so thank you so much! We had a little girl, she is totally beautiful and also a very calm and relaxed baby (due to her relaxed birth and all the prep relaxation I did I think 😁). I am so happy to have all the hypnobirthing knowledge on board.”

Gillian

“Me and my partner are very happy that we committed to doing the course. We had the home water birth we had planned. The breathing and visualization were such great tools. We felt empowered and prepared. Thank you Kahrina”
