About me

Amy Swann (HPCE)

Hi, I’m Amy! I’m a mother, teacher, and Hypnobirthing Practitioner Childbirth Educator.

I grew up in Perth and studied education at ECU in Mount Lawley. I went on to become a secondary English teacher and have loved teaching in high schools here in Perth for the past 16 years.

 

When I became pregnant with my first baby, I had no real idea about the kind of birth I wanted or what to expect. Does labour hurt? Should I have a natural birth? What if I need a c-section? How can my partner help me in labour? Then my sister-in-law told me about hypnobirthing! And my next question was: What is hypnobirthing? 

So after a bit of research, my partner and I signed up for hypnobirthing group classes at the lovely Wellness on Whatley in Maylands. There we were taught all about what to expect during pregnancy and labour, what our options were, and the many practical ways my partner could support me during labour and beyond.

I went on to have a beautiful water birth at the Family Birthing Centre in Subiaco, using all of the knowledge and tools we had learnt in our hypnobirthing classes. And when I was having my second baby, I knew I wanted to do it all over again. After a refresher hypnobirthing course, my partner and I felt prepared and confident again and I went on to have another calm and positive birth, this time at King Edward Memorial Hospital under the care of midwives.

After that, I couldn’t stop talking about hypnobirthing to anyone who’d listen! And I couldn't wait to become a Hypnobirthing Practitioner so that I could share my experiences and knowledge with other expecting parents in Perth and spread the word about the wonders of hypnobirthing.

Women are amazing. Birth is a natural and amazing process and it should be free of fear. It can and should be a beautiful, empowering experience. While pregnancy and labour can take many twists and turns, my hypnobirthing classes give birthing mothers and their birth partners the tools that will help them achieve their positive birth.

I am so grateful for having my two “hypnobubs” and being able to birth the way I wanted. I am passionate about helping other birthing women and their partners feel empowered and excited about their birthing day and beyond.

I can't wait to meet you and help you achieve your amazing birth!
