Hypnobirthing Classes

Keep Calm and Hypnobirth

Hypnobirthing with Heidi Smith

My wish is for you and your baby to have an empowered birth experience and the best start of life together. I teach KGHypnobirthing which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and is a complete and in-depth antenatal course. 


You will learn about how the body is perfectly equipped to birth as a normal and natural function just like the many other reflexes in our bodies. We will build a positive expectation of birth so that you can release any fears and trust your body, your baby and your instincts.


I will give you information and knowledge around birth and within the NHS. We will look at the choices you may be faced with in your birthing journey and the implications of various routes so that you can feel confident in the decisions you make for you and your baby. 


Unique from other antenatal courses, we dispel the myths of a painful labour.  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. Private courses are also available.


For more information on the KGHypnobirthing method I teach and for some free resources please see the link below. 


Investment in birth preparation is worth it.

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 £360


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.
