I believe that childbirth is one of the most challenging experiences in a woman’s life, one that will always be remembered. I know that Hypnobirthing is an amazing way for you and your partner to prepare for the birth of your baby, as you will both learn how to relax, be more confident and able to take control of your birthing experience.
With Hypnobirthing you will learn to work with your body in a natural way, to trust in your natural instincts, making the birth of your baby a positive experience for you, your baby and your partner. Hypnobirthing can’t promise that your birthing experience will be exactly as you want it to be but it can enable you and your baby to have a calm, gentle and more comfortable birth, however and where ever you give birth. It will always contribute to a more positive birthing experience.
The evening weekday course follows The WiseHippo Birthing Programme (TWH) and the intensive day follows Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing (KGH). Both of these in-depth programmes offer the same information and include, how the body works during pregnancy, labour and birth, relaxation techniques and breathing exercises. The full course materials include a Book, MP3 music files, guided notes and ongoing support from me as required. The one day intensive courses are for those who prefer a shortened course format or for when time is limited, includes the same information as for the full course, but with reduced time for practicing, watching births on DVD and extended group discussions.
To allow everyone to get the very best experience, places are limited on the group courses to a small number of couples.
