Jo was helpful, informative and friendly. It was easy to chat to her and she was great at providing information tailored to my specific situation (twins, 1 breech). I was able to achieve a non-medicated natural twin birth with a breech extraction - thanks to the techniques she taught me. If I ever have any more children, I will certainly contact her again.

Jo's classes were fantastic. She was knowledgeable, open and created an environment where we felt comfortable to ask any question. We ended up having a drug free birth and arrived at the hospital fully dilated after 7 hours of labour at home. Without the techniques we learnt we would not have been able to progress as far as we did. The class itself and the resources provided as part of the class were excellent preparation and we will be returning for a refresher coure when we feel ready for the next one!!

My partner and I were do blessed to have participated in Jo's classes, they are intimate, and provide you with the confidence to achieve your "dream birth" we were pregnant with our first and I wanted to have this amazing experience of "I can't wait to do it all over again" feeling. So after the classes we asked Jo to attend the birth of our first to keep us focused. And it was everything and more of could asked for, she keeled us grounded and gave my partner the confidence to support me through the whole process. Jo makes it a personal experience not just a job to her, she stayed many hours after to the birth to share in the moment also and to make sure we 110% fine before she left, she is an amazing women and I can't highly recommend her classes enough. I will keep this memory with me for a life time and it wouldn't have been such a positive experience without Jo. Thank you xxx

My husband and I were interested to learn more about hypnobirthing when we found that we were expecting our second child and also after feeling that we had little control over the long and difficult birth of our first child.
A close friend recommended Born2Birth Hypnobirthing classes. We are so glad she did! Jo made us feel instantly welcome and at ease. The classes were informative, relaxed and enjoyable. Jo was very knowledgable and encouraging.
The skills gained from our classes were very helpful in planning our birth, during labour and even following the birth. My husband and I felt a lot more empowered and were a great team. I was able to have the natural birth experience that I had hoped for.
Recovery after the birth was much improved and helped to provide a great start for our new life as a family of four. When people ask me how the birth was I tell them that it was great and I mean it!
I feel really grateful to Jo for helping to make such a difference. I would highly recommend Born2Birth to all expectant parents.
Kate - Montmorency
Thanks for all your Hypnobirthing coaching... we couldn't have had the great, quick experience we did without it. We really appreciate all the time you spent with us to prepare for the birth. You are amazing at what you do and every pregnant woman needs to come see you!'
Jo - Carnegie
My husband and I attended a small class at Jo's home, and also a private session in our own home. Jo is such a lovely person and we are so pleased we found out about Hypnobirthing and did the course with Jo. We learnt so much and feel so much more confident and can't wait for the birth of our first baby. I used to be so terrified at the thought of labour and birth, but now I know there is no need to be, I know that I am a woman and birth is what I am made for. I know that sounds super corny but it's true! Also my husband feels he is ready to be an important and active supporter during all aspects of the labour, not just take up space and stand around being 'useless.'
I highly recommend Hypnobirthing, and Jo is wonderful
Rosie - Hurstbridge
Jo really helped me feel positive and relaxed about my upcoming birth experience. The relaxation techniques were invaluable during the labour and enabled me to stay calm throughout and achieve a natural birth that left me on a high for days afterwards. My partner got a lot out of the course and was a fantastic support leading up to and during the birth. Thanks Jo.
Heidi - Packenham
I attended the Hypnobirthing classes and found Jo to be friendly, compassionate, very informative and very focused on the individual. Jo teaches techniques that will help you achieve the best birthing experience possible.
I would recommend Jo and Born2Birth Hypnobirthing to anyone and everyone that is pregnant! She is truly amazing and I'm sure that without her techniques and guidance I would not have birthed my daughter naturally and with out pain relief.
I really can't thank you enough Jo!!
'I was extremely pleased to experience a natural vaginal birth free from medication and (relatively) calm and pain-free!
I can't tell you how different the experience was to my first birth. To have everything go smoothly was amazing, and to simply bond with my daughter on my chest immediately after delivery was wonderful! I was on a high for the first 24 hours - I couldn't believe that we had done it!
Hypnobirthing and the affirmations and relaxations got me to the point of pushing, and from there adrenaline took me the rest of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the tools to achieve the natural vbac that I had wanted so much. You were fantastic.'
Colleen - Craigieburn
A great introduction to Hypnobirthing. Jo made us feel immediately at ease in her lovely home. An excellent two-day course with a variety of different learning techniques in self-relaxation, open discussion and dvds.
Jo provided us with wonderful lunches and an endless supply of tea, coffee and snacks.
A great course, in a wonderful setting which allows you to immerse yourself in the power of self-belief, relaxation and the wonders of nature.
Sharon - Richmond
I can honestly say that I have released all my fear in relation to child birth since attending Joanne's Born2Birth Hypnobirth classes. This fear built from the opinions of others, scary birth stories and witnessing high intervention births first hand in my profession as an anaesthetic nurse.
I now sit comfortably knowing we have invested time in gaining valuable techniques & skills introduced to us by Joanne & her informative Hypnobirthing course. I now trust my body and my baby, what ever path our birthing takes and we welcome the birthing day of our first child. I highly recommend expecting parents to take this course.'
Colleen - Mitcham
Jo was fantastic, understanding and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the contents of the classes and the comfortable environment she created.
Georga - Diamond Creek
'Was a great experience, we felt very welcome and comfortable and were 100% satisfied with the knowledge and information we came away wih. Jo is a great teacher with own personal experiences. We highly recommend this Hypnobirthing course. Thank you Jo.'
Micaela - Coburg
'Jo is a lovely, warm person and you immediately feel comfortable asking her any question about birthing. We had a wonderful hypnobirth which I am sure can be attributed partly to Jo's calm manner of teaching, which we carried with us during the birthing of our baby. We highly recommend her.'
Mei - Kensington
'It has been such a pleasure and honour to have you beside me during my beautiful natural birth. I feel that I have accomplished something BIG in my life in giving birth naturally. Thank you so much for your effort and time in order to make the hypnobirthing a success and unforgettable experience to me. I will always remember you and the great effort that you made. '
Kym -Warrandyte - "I wouldn't do it any other way"
"I was introduced to Hypnobirthing by a girlfriend from my mother’s group. She extolled the virtues of Hypnobirthing telling us all what a great experience she & her partner had had so, although not completely convinced, I thought that I would give it a go for the birth of my second child.
The difference between the two births was amazing, the labour was shorter and while uncomfortable at times not painful and I was highly lucid throughout the delivery – I remember saying to my husband afterwards I didn’t even think about asking for the gas - so when my baby girl arrived I was really able to enjoy and savour the moment. Post birth my recovery has been just as amazing.
Hypnobirthing gave both my husband and myself the tools and knowledge to be able to really enjoy having an active birth – I wouldn’t do it any other way!"
Dini - Tempelstowe
'Our midwife described our birth as very peaceful, Our little one has turned out to be a peaceful little girl too!'
Ruth - Melbourne
'We wanted to let you know that we were so happy with the birth. I used many of the principles of hypnobirthing and they enabled me to stay calm and centered. The staff at the hospital and my birthing coach said I seemed so calm and relaxed they couldn’t believe I was actually having contractions. The birth was 24 hours long and not without its challenges but by continually returning to relaxed breathing and positive thinking I was able to manage. The birth was all natural, I used no pain killers (except for a panadol at the beginning of the labour) we were able to avoid all medical intervention and our baby was born calm and very alert.
Thank you for taking the time to teach us this method. '
Christina - Mitcham
'Jo provided us a one on one course which we were so grateful for as my husband and I left it until I was 34 weeks pregnant before we decided that this was how we wanted to birth. Jo was able to attend our house and fit into our schedule which just made it so easy for us. We felt that she adapted the course to fit us perfectly as we had already done the background reading. Jo answered all our questions and we feel so confident as our birthing day is just around the corner. I look forward to telling my pregnant friends about my experience and will not hesitate to recommend Jo.'
Jen - Warrandyte
'Jo and the Calm Birth principles set us up really well for the arrival of our beautiful little son. Jo is really approachable, she's been through it all and gave us the tools, understanding and advice we needed for labor and birth. Highly recommend the Calm Birth way and Jo.'
Ally - Ringwood North
'Wonderful experience, extremely helpful for training your body and mind to be calm, deeply relaxed, and in control of your birth! Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience natural birth.
Thank you Jo!!! :) '
Kat - Hampton
For those looking to pursue a natural birth, Hypobirthing is a fantastic approach, and Jo is a great teacher. The relaxation techniques worked really well and I felt very comfortable talking with Jo and learning about the whole birthing process. Surprisingly my husband also got a lot out of the courses and although they are not cheap you get a lot of value out of the whole experience and I would strongly recommend Jo.
'We really enjoyed our classes with Jo Brimelow in hypnobirthing. We found Jo’s approach to be very positive and encouraging. Jo is a lovely teacher to work with, she was able to tailor the classes to our needs, clearly explained the theory and lead us through many practice examples of relaxation, breathing and visualizations. We are happy to recommend Born2Birth for anyone wishing to feel more confident and prepared for their birth experience.'
