Vicki Hobbs started her complementary therapies business in 2004 and has been working with pregnant women since 2006.
She has been teaching the Hypnobirthing Australia™ childbirth education program for several years and believes this is the leading program in Australia and is the best way for women and their partners to become highly skilled and educated about their birth preparation. Vicki is also Perth Hypnobirthing’s VBAC specialist having supported many couples to achieve wonderful births after caesarean.
Her belief is that everyone is unique and therefore what works for one person may be useless for the next. She is a highly qualified remedial massage therapist specialising in pregnancy and postpartum massage and uses her therapies for balancing the mind, the body and the emotions to prepare women for labour and birth.
She became a birth doula in 2010 and postpartum doula in 2015 and has attended over 100 births and now runs the Doula Training Academy to ensure that doulas supporting women are highly skilled and professional advocates for the rights of birthing women.
She has become a “serial learner” and has completed numerous workshops including Spinning Babies, VBAC Educator, Soundbirth, Acupressure, Dr Rachel Reed and Dr Sara Wickham’s face to face and online workshops all relating to pregnant women.
Vicki is also a certified hypnotherapist, multi-award-winning Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner, Placenta Encapsulator, Life Coach and Aromatherapist so incorporates many therapies into her work.
