My name is Anne Carstairs and I am an experienced birth worker, Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner and qualified level 3 Ka Huna Bodyworker in the Shoalhaven area.
My passion is creating positive lasting change for birthing Women and their families on a deep subconscious level.
I believe a strong community that wholeheartedly supports and respects Mothers starting from pregnancy is the first step in creating this change.
I teach ancient birthing wisdom with a modern twist; by sharing with Women how they are perfectly designed for birth. I support Women to release old negative, fear-based perceptions and beliefs of childbirth; transforming them into remembered knowledge and awakened power from within. My intention is to bring pregnancy birth and parenthood back into the sacred rite of passage it is and always has been, but has been forgotten in recent times.
My dream is for all Women, their birth partners and family to have access to holistic childbirth preparation and support - so Women and their partners have effective techniques and knowledge and support to feel ready and confident to surrender to the magic of childbirth and beyond.
As a witness to a countless number of births, my main focus is to help Mothers to believe in themselves and their perfect shape shifting body's with self-determination and self-amazement that will last a lifetime and many generations to come.
I feel honoured to be sharing such a beautiful gift of wisdom and nourishing support for Mothers and their birth partners as a birth worker, Ka Huna body worker; and in the positive birth movement of Hypnobirthing Australia™.
"Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth"

"Anne provided us with so much valuable wisdom and education around birth. Ultimately helping us to birth safely and confidently at home with our private midwife. Anne reinforced most importantly the body's natural ability to give birth.. and the power i had in controlling my mind to create a safe physical and mental space for us and our baby.
The hypnobirth content was taught thoughtfully and sensitively and we both left feeling empowered and excited about birthing the way we had chosen to.
Our Jack was born amazingly gently and safely at home."
"Before doing the hypnobirthing course my partner and I briefly discussed what the birth would be like. Neither of us had any idea and the thought of watching our baby crowning terrified my partner! He just assumed that he would sit next to my head and let me squeeze his hand during contractions (which we now call surges). From what a lot of other people told me, I was going to be in a world of pain and this became my expectation of childbirth. However Anne taught us the complete opposite!! After doing the course our attitude flipped and we were so excited for the day our baby was ready to meet us. Anne gave us tools to practice and use throughout the surges so that my partner could confidently support me rather than sit and watch idly by. We gave birth to our baby boy in the hospital after one and a half hours. Our midwife nearly sent us home because I wasn't even showing signs of being in labour! Thanks to Anne's hypnobirthing tools I was able to remain calm, trust my body and rely on my partner to ease the pressure through each surge. We had a truly beautiful birthing experience, which wouldn't have been possible without Anne's hypnobirthing course. If you're having any doubts at all about whether you can have a natural birth, Anne will put your mind at ease. She is such a gentle and down to earth facilitator yet she also adds her professional knowledge, skills and experience as a midwife to the course. I wish more first time mums knew about this!!!
