About Us | Clarity Fearless Birth - Birthing Classes Melbourne

About Us

The experienced team at Clarity Fearless Childbirth are passionate about equipping you and your partner with the most practical and diverse collection of Ante Natal skills and knowledge available.  


Our aim is for couples to establish their own ideal birth goals, to feel empowered to reach these through their preparation and equally prepared to make different, informed choices on birth day should circumstances change.  Ultimately, we would hope that every labour and baby’s birth can be perceived by the parents as having been a positive experience.

Our educators have all received foundation training as accredited HypnoBirthing Practitioners by the HypnoBirthing Institute. In addition, we bring to our courses a broad range of personal skills and qualifications and believe in engaging in plenty of Ante Natal professional development to continue evolving what we offer our clients.

The Clarity team have all given birth multiple times using the key skills we promote in our classes. Clarity Fearless Childbirth was established in 2009.


Initially sceptical, I have since become convinced of the benefits of hypnobirthing. I have seen it empower women and make them confident of their ability to face the challenge of childbirth in a positive manner. Though not a panacea for pregnancy complications, it equips them to deal with the birth process as well as the events before and after. I now actively recommend the course to my expectant parents.
