  • 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  at my home in Winchester or a venue in town.

  • The Hypnobirthing Book by Katharine Graves

  • Three Hypnobirthing relaxation tracks
