Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is an alternative birth education programme that teaches simple but specific self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better birth.

Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education that will equip you with knowledge and understanding on how hypnobirthing works within the whole process of pregnancy and birthing experience.

 Hypnobirthing helps you to achieve a more comfortable, calm experience and in some cases pain free birth when using hypnobirthing techniques.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN DURING THE COURSE?
  • Breathing exercises
  • Deep relaxations
  • Visualisations
  • Very effective work to release fear and build confidence
  • Comforting massage
  • How the father/birth partner can be your powerful protector and support
  • How your body is designed to give birth with efficiency and comfort
  • Knowledge and information about the whole process
  • How ‘the system’ works, and how to work with it to achieve the best result for you
  • A simple practice regime to support you at home
  • Understanding how the mind and body work together and how to utilise this at time of birth.

The course is organised in 2 weekend sessions. Each session lasts 6 hours.

The cost of the 12-hour course is £250, this includes a CD ‘colour and calmness’, a hypnobirthing book and a folder containing the script for relaxation, visualization and guides to make the sessions more enjoyable. 

Refreshments will be provided. (There is a discounted rate for women on income support, please enquire for more information)

You should bring along a pillow and/or yoga mat.

Dates for your booked sessions will be confirmed by email after acknowledgment of booking and receipt of full payment.  We recommend you to book to attend sessions after 28 weeks of pregnancy.  There will be limited spaces so early booking is recommended.
