Hypnobirthing

HYPNOBIRTHING.

THE COMPLETE HYPNOBIRTHING PROGRAMME OR THE 3 HOUR HYPNOBIRTHING WORKSHOP

Hypnobirthing is a birth preparation and education course that combines evidence based knowledge of birth with relaxation techniques. It gives parent the ability to look forward to the birth of their baby knowing that they are fully prepared.  This is done through the combination of knowledge of birth and what to expect, together with practising how to stay calm and relaxed.

The most amazing thing about hypnobirthing is that it gives you the tools, techniques, knowledge and benefits for any kind of births.

Any type of birth can be positive as long as the parents are empowered to make confident choices, have the ability to remain calm, feel supported and in control. Hypnobirthing helps to greatly reduce the risk of birth trauma and it has the power to transform a birth that on paper may look traumatic into the most positive experience.

It would be a huge honour and pleasure to support you and your birth partner towards a birth where you both feel calm, relaxed and empowered. If you have any further questions I welcome you to contact me.

​I offer two types of hypnobirthing courses:
