Have you been feeling nervous or scared about the pain of giving birth?

Are you worried about birth injury?

Have you become overwhelmed by all the information you have googled?

Or perhaps you feel called to birth more consciously, rather than just gritting your teeth and “getting through it”?

Either way, you’re in the right place, dear one.

Tracey takes the fear and overwhelm away distilling birth and parenting to a simplicity that makes it doable
– for both you and your partner.

This is more than just a birth course – it is preparation for the journey to parenthood

Tracey has a system of support that has you covered all the way through, from pregnancy to the first seven years of a child’s life. 

Childbirth classes increase your understanding of labour and overcome any anxiety about giving birth. 

Weekly pre natal Q&A calls so you can ask Tracey all your questions.

Weekly postnatal and early parenting education Q&A calls until your bub turns one.

Transform Your Birth will guide you along this path, by teaching you the knowledge, practical tools, and skills you need to “retrain” your nervous system, so you are ready for anything.

What Makes Transform Your Birth Different?

Most birth courses end before your baby has even arrived. Transform Your Birth is different.  With weekly live Q&A calls before the birth of your baby, and for the whole first year of your early parenting journey, Tracey will be there to support you every step of the way.

Many birth courses focus on the mechanics of birth, but leave you feeling stranded when the big day finally hits. Transform Your Birth is different. Tracey completely redefines your perspective of birth and will empower you to fully embrace and confidently experience this biggest, and most life changing event of your life.

The truth is – birth can be different.

It’s not something we have to fear, or dread. Because whilst we can’t control birth completely, science shows us that we can influence it.

This course will walk you through an entire transformation for the way you understand and experience labour and birth.  So for the best results, start at lesson one and work your way through to the end.

Learn how to re-train your nervous system – so you don’t just think differently – you labour differently.

Learning to harness our mind’s ability to impact our body is the key to handling the intensity of birth — and making labour easier, less painful, and even enjoyable.

It does, however, for most of us, take training.

This is what we do!

Transform Your Birth will give you the knowledge + practical tools and skills you need to “retrain” your nervous system — so you don’t just think differently about birth…you labour differently.

“Tracey is a fantastic presenter, she is warm and makes you feel instantly at ease. We had such a good time at her weekend course, the information covered was so useful, made so much sense and has helped us so much. My husband said the same, he feels better equipped to support me as best he can to welcome our baby. Every soon to be parent needs to meet Tracey and take as much as possible from her incredible amount of knowledge and passion for the beauty and transformational power of birth.“

~ Elise

“Such an empowering course that inspires you to embrace what your body is capable of. To walk away from the course with tools and strategies that allow you to birth with love was the greatest gift. Both myself and my birthing partner felt supported and ready to embrace the birthing journey no matter how the birthing experience presented.“

~ Kim

“Tracey is a born educator. Her use of personal anecdotes – including fresh humour and digital media – mixed with information on empirical evidence – science on anatomy, physiology, hormones – and latest clinical and midwifery thinking is excellent. Tracey caters for all types of mums, with differing levels of knowledge and who seek and absorb data differently.”

~ Natalie

Frequently asked q's

What is the benefit of attending an antenatal class?

An antenatal class, also known as a prenatal, or birth preparation class, is an opportunity for expectant couples to learn about pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenting.

Transform Your Birth is unique because you will learn how to harness your mind and handle the intensity of labour and birth so that your experience is easier, less painful, and even enjoyable.

Traditional antenatal classes are focussed on the mechanics of birth, but Tracey goes beyond this to help empower you to love your birth experience.

Why is Transform Your Birth the best pregnancy and birthing class?

With decades of experience in the maternity and birthing class space, Tracey is by your side every step of the way as you prepare for your birth and become a new parent. 

Transform Your Birth offers you weekly opportunities to ask Tracey questions in the live Q&A calls before your birth, and for one year afterward as you care for your newborn child.

Starting with your understanding of labour and birth, Transform Your Birth will help you birth fearlessly and then cope with the changes to your mind, body, and family as you are caring for a newborn baby.

When is the ideal time to attend Transform Your Birth?

We see couples in all stages of their pregnancies; however, we find it is most beneficial for couples to come in their second trimester or at the beginning of their third trimester (approx. 30 weeks). This will allow enough time before your due date to practice the relaxation activities assigned to you by your Transform Your Birth Educator and fit in a Transform Your Birth pre-natal catch-up group visit. 

If you’re feeling particularly anxious about birth in your early pregnancy, please feel free to attend earlier. We also offer opportunities to revisit our birth classes prior to birth. 

If there is a higher chance you might need to have a caesarean section, please contact us before enrolling and we can assess your needs and potentially offer you an alternative form of birth preparation specific to your circumstances.

Is this course suitable for planned cesareans?

If you are planning a cesarean section, we recommend booking a private 2-hour session with Tracey. This session will cover specific topics relevant when having a cesarean, such as: preparing for the birth, the role of the mind in birth, breathing physiology, relaxation and visualisation, and the partner's role in the birth. A private session costs $525.

How do I do your antenatal course if I am not in Canberra?

Face-to-face classes are held regularly in Canberra.  If you cannot attend face to face you can study online childbirth preparation with the hybrid model.  This gives you immediate access to all of Tracey's practical advice as well as the weekly catch up calls.

What is your Refund Policy?

A non-refundable deposit of $150 is payable upon enrollment in the Transform Your Birth course. The remaining balance is refundable up until seven (7) days prior to the commencement of the course. A refund of the balance after this date will be considered in exceptional circumstances such as premature birthing, and is at the discretion of the Course Facilitator.

Do you offer Payment Plans?

Yes. Payment plans are available. Please contact hello@transformparenting.com.au after enrolment if you wish to organise a payment plan for the remaining $525 amount. Please note: A $30 administration fee will apply and all payments must be paid prior to commencing the class.

Can I claim on Insurance?

Tracey is a registered and accredited Childbirth Educator, however Private Health Insurers generally don’t provide rebates for Childbirth Educators, only midwives. We recommend contacting your health provider to check if it is claimable. You can then contact our office at hello@transformparenting.com.au to obtain a detailed invoice if required.

Please note: AfterPay will incur a $25 admin fee.

Is this right for first time parents?

As soon as you announce your pregnancy, you will be inundated with birth stories from people all around you.  This can be especially overwhelming for first time parents.  Transform Your Birth is the perfect course for first time parents because Tracey guides women and their partners into find their own path and confidence on the pregnancy, birth, and parenting journey.

I have already given birth, should I study Transform Your Birth?
Tracey offers a new way of understanding birth.  If you have already experienced pregnancy and childbirth you'll receive a new way of preparing for your birth and baby.  You can couple your previous experience with your new knowledge and skills learned from Tracey, and experience a positive birth the best way possible.
And Tracey's ongoing support throughout the first year of your new baby's life helps you adjust to your new experience of parenthood no matter your situation.
Are there online options available for Transform Your Birth?
Yes, Transform Your Birth is available online so pregnant women and their families can benefit from evidence-based practical skills to re-frame the mind-body connection.  Access Tracey's life-changing postnatal support immediately with her hybrid or modules-only course options.
Tracey would highly recommend the hybrid version so you can continue to receive care and support after your pre natal period and right into your early parenting journey.
Birth is an important beginning, but the real journey continues on the other side.
