My name is Melissa and I believe that birth can be a beautiful, empowering time in life. All women are entitled to a informed, positive birth and hypnobirthing helps to prepare for this!

Do you feel anxious, uncertain or fearful about what to expect with birth?

Do you want to birth as naturally as possible and be able to embrace any medical interventions that are truly needed?

Do you want to know more about your birth options?

Are you unsure of how to involve your birth partner?

Or perhaps you had a birthing experience that wasn’t as you hoped it would be? Are you determined this time will be different?


Welcome, you’re in the right place.

Hi there!

I’m Melissa Ayling; an award-winning Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner, birth doula and proud advocate for women everywhere.

I believe that with the right preparation, childbirth can be a beautiful, positive and empowering experience. A woman birthing another human being into the world is truly something special and one of the heights of human experience. It shouldn’t be feared or be surrounded by stigma.

Together with Australia’s most popular childbirth education program, Hypnobirthing Australia™, I help women approach birth with a positive mindset. I offer practical, evidence-based education, tools and support to help women be informed, remain calm and embrace whatever path their birth journey takes.

I live for the a-ha moments and all the transformations I witness in my classes as women (and their birth partners) discover what’s involved in the birth process, how to trust their bodies and reach birth’s full potential.

Put simply, I want to share the secrets to a positive birth experience.

Hypnobirthing made my birth amazing, I’m so grateful I did it. I would do it all over again today. I still reflect on my birth and I’m so proud and happy. I have a very healthy Bub and it went as perfect as I could imagine. I would just like to thank you, Melissa, for your love and support, I feel as though you are just as important in our birth as the doctors and midwives. I will never forget all you have taught me. I’m so grateful words can not say enough! Sophie and Jessie
