Bright Mums a smart op­tion

Cockburn Gazette - - LOVE LOCAL -

IN­SPIRED by her own preg­nancy, Kate Vi­vian be­came a Hyp­no­birthing Aus­tralia prac­ti­tioner.

Born into Calm re­named Bright Mums is a child­birth ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram, which aims to re­move the fear around birth.

The Bright Mums owner said af­ter her first child, when she fell preg­nant with num­ber two, she wanted a bet­ter ap­proach to the birth.

“Hyp­no­birthing is not just for hip­pies, it’s re­ally about tak­ing it back to ba­sics by us­ing tech­niques such as breathing, mas­sage, acu­pres­sure and self­hyp­no­sis,” she said.

“Bright Mums came about in or­der to help oth­ers have the pos­i­tive birth ex­pe­ri­ence they de­serve and to give them the in­for­ma­tion they need to make the best de­ci­sions for them­selves and their baby.

“I now work with cou­ples to re­move the fear from birth and help them find the joy in preg­nancy, birth and be­yond.”

Mrs Vi­vian said the classes are de­signed to be very hands-on.

“This way mums-to-be and their part­ners have a chance to prac­tise the tech­niques and gain con­fi­dence as they lead up to their birth,” she said.

Mrs Vi­vian said in mid­late 2019 she wants to of­fer pre-natal ex­er­cise classes and then post-natal and mums and bubs classes.

Kate Vi­vian wants preg­nant moth­ers and their part­ners to have a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence.
