'Hypnobirthing, in the heat of labour, was not for me about candles, breathing, meditations etc. It was about knowledge, empowerment, how to make decisions for me, how to change my mindset, and how to feel in control. It was also, in a major part, about how to help my husband feel he was supportive, gave him a role, made him feel able to stand up for me.' First-time mum

'It’s the kind of birth I never thought I was capable of - so different in so many positive ways from my first experience and one I definitely don’t think I could have had without your help. Thank you so much!' 

My whole birth experience was just a wonderful whirlwind and one I felt powerful, calm, cared for and fully in control and I can’t tell you how central Hypnobirthing was to that. 

What do you get?

  • The full Hypnobirthing & Antenatal Course, delivered as 4 sessions of around 2-2.5 hours each. Sessions are usually held weekly, over the course of the month. The group course is a complete birth preparation course combining hypnobirthing and antenatal education, and it's a great way to meet like-minded people in a relaxed setting (absolutely no awkward ice-breakers, promise!).

  • Delivered in a small group setting (max. 4 couples) to ensure your needs and questions are fully addressed. Held at my home in Winchester. Expect a cosy fire in the winter!

  • Ongoing support via email and phone throughout pregnancy and following your baby' s birth 

  • Two Hypnobirthing relaxation tracks 

  • The Positive Birthing & Parenting Course workbook, full of handy checklists & practical tips for labour 

  • Refreshments and great snacks during the classes. My aim is to make it a wonderful experience for you! 

 

Know another couple who'd like to do the course? I also offer a ‘Bump Buddies’ Group Course just for you, in your own home/virtually (at a discounted rate of £199 per couple). 

Please get in touch with any questions about the course. I’m always very happy to have a chat (with absolutely no obligation to sign up afterwards)! 

'Thank you SO much for all your support through the hypnobirthing course. I have no doubt that our positive experience was all due to you. J is such a chilled baby so far and I'm sure it is because I was so relaxed in labour. Listened to your tracks so much in the last few months. My husband was the perfect birth partner and we both felt empowered to deal with the twists and turns of J's birth.'
