Join us with your birth companion on our Hypnobirthing Course where we support the mind and body to let go of fear daily, allowing you to build in calm confidence in preparation for birth.
Your body is naturally designed to give birth but fear and negative thoughts can have a powerful impact due to a strong mind and body connection. Hypnobirthing uses words to help release fear and replace it with calm and gentle, positivity and confidence – this supports your body’s natural physiology during birth.
‘Hypnobirthing can reduce the need for pain relief and shorten labour and you are more likely to experience a natural, calm, comfortable birth. It actively involves the father; you will both learn skills to instil confidence about the birth and your roles as parents’ The Hypnobirthing Book
Hypnobirthing is not stage hypnosis and you will not be put into a trance like state, we simply use words to help you relax and release. The benefits of Hypnobirthing are nourished by daily or regular practice at home. On our Course we will teach you what to do and your birth companion will also have the opportunity to practice with you, so that they’re confident to continue practice with you at home.
To support your Hypnobirthing practice, as part of our Course you’ll receive a Course File containing reading materials, The Hypnobirthing Book and a Relaxation MP3.

My Birth Partner can’t attend, can I come alone?
Our Course offers space for you and your Birth Partner but if they can’t make it, you’re welcome to come alone. If your Birth Partner is not supportive of Hypnobirthing or you don’t have a Birth Partner, you can still benefit from Hypnobirthing by joining our Course and completing the practice at home which is supported by the Relaxation MP3 given to you as part of our Course.
