First things first - hypnobirthing is not a method of pain relief! This is a common misconception but whilst the techniques you learn with Hypnobirthing will certainly stack the odds in favour of a smoother and more comfortable labour, it actually provides a FULL antenatal education PLUS a lot, lot more...
My course will provide you with the powerful knowledge and tools to let go of any fears or anxieties you have about birth, and instead focus on building positivity and confidence, allowing you to actually get EXCITED about the birth of your baby! I will change your perceptions of birth from the painful, unmanageable ordeal that everyone tends to expect, to the instinctive, gentle and empowering experience that birth should be - HOWEVER birth happens.
I will teach you life-changing skills including deep relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques alongside a sound knowledge of labour and birth physiology, your choices about your care & physical preparation. Not only this, but I'll teach your birth partner what they can do every step of the way to make this pregnancy and birth a calm, incredible team effort. Let's make sure there's no helpless 'spare part' stressing in your birth room!
Far from only being a bunch of techniques to use on the day of birth, my hypnobirthing course provides EVERYTHING you need to know! As one of my lovely couples commented recently "I really wish we'd done it first time round...we found it a million times more useful than NCT"
The course is made up of lots of logical, simple, practical elements, which together will make a HUGE difference to how calm, relaxed and in control you feel during pregnancy and birth.
So, despite the dodgy name 'Hypnobirthing', there's nothing airy fairy here. Just really simple, logical and evidence-based stuff, underpinned by the SCIENCE of what actually happens in your body during labour and birth. Strictly no pendulum swinging or vagina whispering! Actually, it's my real, honest insights as an experienced practising midwife and hypnobirthing mum-of-two that really sets this course aside from any other. You will gain precious insider knowledge of how the maternity care system works, how to get the best from the people looking after you, and the ability to make safe but personalised informed decisions for you and your baby.
You only get to birth this baby once and it should be a life-changing experience for the right reasons! Let me share with you the ability to relax & enjoy birth, no matter which planned or unexpected directions your birth journey takes you in...
