Hi! My name is Dahlia Lipson. I am a practicing Registered Nurse/Midwife with 7+ years’ experience and have loved everything about my job including meeting new people and making a positive difference in their lives.
I have always had a particular love for women’s health and childbirth but I must have always had a calling towards education. Classmates used to tell me “you’d make a great teacher Dahlia”. Well, they were right! Here I am now, a passionate Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner!
As a midwife and mother of two and having experienced such wonderful labours and births, I know the importance of feeling positive about pregnancy, labour and birth whether completely natural or not. Drawing on years of techniques and philosophies, current evidence-based research and effective relaxation techniques, mothers, partners and their babies can all benefit from the hypnobirthing approach to childbirth.
It is my mission and absolute privilege to help equip women and their birth partners with the knowledge, tools and support to feel prepared for a calm, empowered, safe and positive birth experience no matter what turn their journey may take.
Book a class online now and I look forward to meeting you!
The Hypnobirthing Australia program is a modern, evidence based approach to childbirth education built upon wisdom, philosophies and practices passed down throughout history. The course aims to help women and their birth partners achieve a positive and empowered labour and birth experience. Hypnobirthing harnesses the use of self-hypnosis, certain calming and breathing techniques and provides couples with the necessary knowledge to understand what happens to the body, hormones and brain whilst in labour. Of course, the classes also cover what do in labour, how to know you’re in labour, when to go to hospital, your options whilst in labour and even what to do in an accidental car or home birth! Hypnobirthing prepares you for many birth outcomes! In fact, many women have found that they can use what they learnt in their classes to help with other challenging situations in life and have found their hypnobubs to also be very calm at birth and even after birth.
The Hypnobirthing Australia course helps couples to achieve a positive natural birth but can also help prepare those whose journey takes them down the road to a caesarean section. It recognises that there is a time and a place for intervention and also teaches how to prepare for and be able to accept whatever happens along the way.
Many people who have done the course will speak of their birth with such happiness and describe the experience as being “beautiful” and “calm”. In fact, as part of the course there are videos of hypnobirths in action where you can practically feel the sense of calm and control in the room. Partners feel like they have a role and purpose in the birthing process as they too are given amazing tools and knowledge to help provide support and advocate for the labouring and birthing woman.
Armed with the right tools, knowledge, support and preparation, I believe every woman and birth partner can enjoy a positive, empowered and beautiful birth experience!
