About the Course
My HypnoBirthing™ course is a COMPLETE antenatal preparation.
It covers all stages and will leave you excited about the moment of birth
HypnoBirthing™ is suitable for any expectant mum including those expecting twins and more! Whether you are first mum-to-be or have had previous births. Whether you are planning a hospital birth, birth centre, home birth or C-Section due to special circumstances.
HypnoBirthing™ can also help those who have had traumatic birth experiences in the past and are seeking a different way with their next child, as well as first time mums who are a little concerned about the unknown.
HypnoBirthing™ is for anyone who would like the chance to have a calm, comfortable, safe and gentle birth.
The ideal time to start your HypnoBirthing™ course is between weeks 20 and 30 of your pregnancy, to give you as much time as possible for practise; preparing your body so all the techniques become second nature. The more time your body gets to spend in a place of deep relaxation that we're wanting for your birth ahead of the day, the quicker and easier it will be for it to get back there when needed.
However, if you come to HypnoBirthing™ later in your pregnancy, don’t worry, it is NEVER too late!
If you are 35 weeks or over, or your personal circumstances mean we would be unable to run the course over five sessions, please get in touch and we can look at running it over a shorter timeframe.
Your birthing companion will play a vital role in your HypnoBirthing™, so ideally they would also attend the classes with you. If this will not be possible, please get in touch and we will make other arrangements.
Courses run over five 2.5 hour classes and held on a weekday evening over five consecutive weeks, to allow ample time for practise and any questions to arise. Classes start from 7pm till 9:30pm.

To book your place on a course all you need to do is pay a deposit of £50 at the time of booking to secure your place, with the remaining amount payable, by the latest, the day before your course begins. Places are limited, as class sizes are kept to a maximum of 5 couples, so please book your place early to avoid disappointment. Once your place is booked, I will send you your HypnoBirthing™ book and relaxation tracks.
What will you learn?
You will learn what makes labour painful; but more importantly, you will learn the logic behind why labour doesn’t have to be painful and what you can do about it. Mums and their birth companions study the physical and chemical changes that occur over a period of time when fear and anxiety are allowed to accumulate. This awareness of the fight, flight, or freeze response helps you to choose calm. HypnoBirthing™ techniques are practised in class and designed to help you see the relationship between fear and the possibility of pain. These exercises are not just for labour and birth but skills for life.
