Hypnobirthing Classes

Better birthing

My wish is for you and your baby to have an empowered birth experience and the best start of life together. I teach KGHypnobirthing that is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and is a complete and in-depth antenatal course. I give you the information and knowledge around the systems of birth and within the NHS. We will look at options and the implications of choices so that you can do what is right for you and your baby. Most importantly, and unique from other antenatal courses, we dispel the myths of a painful labour. We build a positive expectation of birth as a normal and natural function of the body so that you can release fear and trust your body, your baby and your instincts. I will guide you in techniques in breathing, deep relaxation and other tools that you and you birth partner will practice beforehand so that when the time comes to birth your baby you will feel confident, comfortable and relaxed. 


To book a course please scroll down this page or contact me. Installment options are available and class times can be flexible.

Benefits to you & your baby

  • A comfortable and sometimes pain free birth is more likely.
  • Your baby will arrive into a calm and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you just as nature intended.
  • Hypnobirthing births are often much shorter.
  • Your baby and you are less likely to be exposed to drugs and medical intervention 
  • Hypnobirthing mums often have a quicker recovery after birth as the physical impact of labour is reduced.
  • The birth partner learns how to  have an active role in supporting mum in the birth. A beautifully connecting experience.

Questions

Can I book a Private Session?

Yes and I can come to your home. Private sessions cost £375


What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration. We experience it everyday when we are waking up and as we fall asleep. Its just like staring into a fire or daydreaming. There is no magic to it.  In hypnobirthing we use this this state of mind to communicate positive suggestions in order to stay relaxed, yet fully in control.


Is reading the Hypnobirthing Book and listening to the Relaxation Sufficient?

Sometimes people ask if doing this is sufficient without coming to a course. The answer is, ‘I don’t know’.  For a few mothers it is but for many it isn’t (though it will always make a difference).  Unfortunately you don’t know if this is the case for you until after your baby is born.
