Group Hypnobirth Courses

Helping you prepare for the birth of your baby in the most positive way possible.

Hynobirthing & Antenatal group courses in Carshalton

Giving birth is not a one size fits all experience and I offer a choice of private and group courses to support you on your journey to parenthood. BabyBien group hypnobirthing courses are in person birth preparation courses taught to small groups in a relaxed & informal setting.

Which course is right for me?

"Hi Kate, I just wanted to say a massive thank you!!! Hypnobirthing helped me so much and gave me the best birth experience. After listening to your MP3s every day in the lead up to birth I know they helped me stay so calm and focused and not lose sight of my goals. Every midwife commented on how well I managed the process and the pain and respected that we were hypnobirthing. I felt empowered, confident and in control throughout.  It's the best thing I did while pregnant and I loved my birth experience. I have a super content and relaxed baby too. His heart rate during birth never went up - he was so happy and relaxed and still is now he's in the outside world. Thank you again!!!”

The cost is per couple - Mum and birth partner. If your partner is unable to make the course then you are welcome to join alone but it is really beneficial if you can both take part in the sessions.

The best time to begin a hypnobirthing course is between 20 and 30 weeks of pregnancy. This is to give optimal time for practice, an important part of the hypnobirthing process.

However, you can attend a course before and after this time. It all depends on what works for you and your diary. Please get in touch if you're unsure.

Group workshop are held in my home in Carshalton Beeches for a relaxed and intimate environment (with comfy sofas & plenty of refreshments!). Carshalton Beeches train station is a few minutes walk always or it is possible to park nearby. Full details will be sent once you have booked your place.

  • An opportunity to meet & connect with other local parents-to-be
  • Sessions are relaxed and informal and each couple gets their own comfy sofa to sit on (no hard church hall chairs in sight!)
  • Groups are kept small so that you get to know each other and feel comfortable to ask questions as we go along
  • Smaller groups also mean that everyone gets the personal attention that they need

All courses include:

  • MP3s in the familiar voice of your instructor, to help you relax during pregnancy & prepare for the birth
  • the personal touch - a course tailored to suit your specific needs
  • handout pack - perfect for your hospital bag
  • access to the online course so that you can review all the info in your own time 
  • ongoing support via phone, email & FB group until your baby is born
  • membership to The Bump Club so that you can make connections with other parents-to-be
  • regular emails with practical tips & reminders to help you with your practise

I'm sure that you're spending a lot of time & money at the moment buying clothes, buggies, cots etc. in preparation for your baby's arrival. I'm also sure that you want the best for them. So why not place as much value on how your baby's birth will impact you? 

I'm an experienced teacher and have also used hypnobirthing myself. It is an investment, yes, but my course fees reflect my expertise and are also the most affordable hypnobirthing classes in the area. I know how much of a difference the hypnobirthing techniques made to my own birth and want my courses to be accessible to as many Mums-to-be as possible.

Hypnobirthing recognises the important role that your birth partner can play and will help you feel calm, in control and prepare confidently for a positive  birth. It will also have a positive effect on your baby – strengthening your bond and giving them the most gentle, loving start in life.

Absolutely! Hypnobirthing can have a positive impact on your birth whatever type you are hoping for or end up having. My courses are suitable for anyone who is pregnant.

My courses aim to fully prepare you for EVERY possible scenario, so that you can have the right birth for you, whatever path your birth takes.

If you are planning a caesarean birth or want a greater understanding of what is involved, I offer a positive caesarean workshop.

The cost of each course covers you and your birth partner. There are often situations which mean that your partner is not able to attend a course with you. That's really not a problem. You are more than welcome to come on your own (all groups are small and informal - you won't feel alone). Alternatively you're welcome to bring along a friend or relative in your partner's place (I've had Mums, sisters and best friends attending my courses for moral support).

Yes. Birth can be a really daunting prospect, especially if you've already had a negative experience with a previous birth. Hypnobirthing is a really powerful tool to help you overcome any fears and anxieties that you may have about birth and will give you all the tools and confidence that you need to have a better birth this time round.

All of my group courses are suitable for 2nd time (or more) Mums but if you feel like you would be more comfortable talking things through on a one-to-one basis then I offer a bespoke course especially for you in the comfort of your own home (which can also help if childcare is an issue).

Just get in touch. I will often add in extra dates if there is demand.
