Hypnobirthing is a set of really simple, effective techniques to make your birth experience calmer and more comfortable.

You will be taught a variety of relaxation and breathing techniques to be used throughout pregnancy in preparation for the birth itself.  You will also learn about your birth choices to help ensure you get the birth you want for you and your baby.  Most importantly, you will learn to trust your body and your capacity to birth.

Hypnobirthing is not a magic wand that will enable you to have a painless birth – nothing can promise you that, although it is possible – but the course will give you all the tools you need to have a more relaxed, calm and comfortable birth, allowing you to feel empowered and confident throughout.

Hypnobirthing is suitable for every pregnant woman, however or wherever she chooses to birth her baby.

BENEFITS FOR BABY

  • There has been little research into the effects of hypnobirthing on newborns but I can hazard a guess that it’s a positive thing for a baby to have a mother who is regularly practicing relaxation techniques during pregnancy!
  • Baby is more likely to be born without intervention and drug-free which is beneficial for initial bonding and establishing breastfeeding.
  • Baby has parents who are educated about birth and can make informed decisions on its behalf.

"When I became pregnant, as a midwife, hypnobirthing was the best thing to prepare me and my partner for this one-off, amazing experience. We had a plan. We had anticipation and excitement, not fear. We had the most incredible, uncomplicated, quick labour and it will stay with us both forever. I felt in control and empowered, never even reaching for my gas and air because my breath got me through the most powerful surges, and I could feel my body taking over. We did it together, in our home."
