In-Depth Antenatal Course

Hypnobirthing classes offer you an in-depth hypnotherapy course which has been created specifically for mothers to empower, release fears and teach techniques to make your birth calmer, more comfortable and with you and your birthing partner feeling in control.

Gain Information

Child birth can be a worrying and fearful time, as your friends and family regale in telling you all their negative birth stories hypnobirthing classes offer you the opportunity to gain information to make an informed decision about what the best care for you is and how to block out the negative perceptions and beliefs that you may have developed over time.

Learn to work with your body

As mothers learn the physiology behind childbirth they quickly recognise that their bodies are an amazing creation that was literally designed to do this – and it doesn’t have to be as hard as people have told you! Learning to work with your body, instead of against it allows a mother to have a positive birthing experience whether at home, in hospital or a birthing centre.

Involving fathers

Fathers and birth partners quickly become advocates for these amazing techniques, recognising that they offer an empowering experience where childbirth can be seen for the amazing thing that it is, and how they can work as a team to ensure this.
