hypnobirthing courses & workshops

Don't just hope for a positive birth. Prepare for one!

What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing helps women to prepare emotionally, physically and mentally for conception, pregnancy and birth. It works through a combination of self hypnosis techniques, deep relaxation and guided visualization to help you overcome fears, create a state of calm and relaxation, be more confident and so have a calmer, more relaxed pregnancy and birth.

hYPNOBIRTHING IS ALL ABOUT:

  • helping give you the tools and techniques to have a more positive birth, whatever path your birth takes
  • overcoming any fears or anxieties you may have about birth
  • learning ways to deal with any pain
  • belief that you can do it
  • learning practical ways to keep you comfortable, calm and relaxed
  • preparing both you & your birth partner so that you both feel confident
  • understanding the options available to you so you can make informed choices where necessary

when is the best time to start a course?

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 your diary. Please get in touch if you're unsure.

why should i choose you over other hypnobirthing teachers?

It's important to trust and have a connection with your teacher - only you will know if I'm the right fit for you. Helping you to have the most positive birth possible is what's important to me and I offer a relaxed and non-judgemental approach - whatever type of birth you're planning.

I've worked with hundreds of couples over the years and have some lovely feedback which you can read to help you decide. I also have some beautiful birth stories from past clients for you to read through.

What are the benefits?

Hypnobirthing techniques are proven to help you have:

  • a shorter labour
  • less need for pain relief
  • less chance of medical intervention

Additional benefits for mum:

  • taking time out during your pregnancy to relax during and spend time bonding with your baby
  • improved sleep
  • faster post natal recovery
  • greater chance of breastfeeding successfully

Benefits for baby:

  • when Mum is able to give birth calmly and instinctively, Baby will receive high levels of oxygen and lower levels of stress hormones
  • hypnobirthing babies tend to stay calm, quiet and alert when they are born
  • higher APGAR scores (the measure of a newborn baby's health immediately after birth)

BENEFITS FOR BIRTH PARTNER:

  • understanding what your partner needs
  • increased confidence in your ability to support your partner
  • learning practical techniques to help you both during labour
  • understanding your choices and gaining confidence to work with the medical team

'The whole experience was very positive and without a doubt the hypnobirthing helped. Iain and I used relaxing breathing techniques and methods we had learnt with you to keep me calm throughout.

Thank you for all your guidance and support to enable this to happen for us."
