THE PRIVATE HYPNOBIRTHING COURSE

The Private Hypnobirthing course is for the mum-to-be and birthing partner, and I run it from your home or mine.

The course can be split however you choose:

  • 4 x evening sessions, one session per week for four weeks.

  • 2 x 4hr sessions, on week or weekend afternoons.

(On request I can also run these during Mon-Fri daytimes).

Both options provide regular breaks.

 

What can YOU expect to learn?

This is a full antenatal course, and you will learn a whole host of skills which you can use during your pregnancy and birth, such as:

  • How to properly and deeply relax.

  • How to visualise the birth you want and how your mind and visualisations can physically impact your body during labour.

  • Exercises to release fear and build confidence.

  • Breathing techniques specifically designed for the first and second stages of labour, what they're for and how they will help.

  • The physiology of birth; what your body is doing during labour and how you can proactively help your body work in the way it's designed.

  • How to increase the efficiency and decrease the discomfort during your birth.

  • Massage techniques which the birth partner can use throughout pregnancy and during labour (if you want them to!)

  • Birth plan options and what they mean.

  • Full information on all types of birth; natural, assisted, home-birth, hospital etc.

  • What your birth choices are and to become fully informed on all aspects of birth, so you can make the right decisions for you.

  • Because this is a 1:1 course we can tailor the content to your circumstances.

 

What do YOU get with the course?

  • 8 hours of face-to-face teaching, bespoke to your needs

  • The ‘Your Birth Your Baby’ book by Hollie de Cruz - a very useful 'bible' for your pregnancy and birth.

  • A YMBP course companion full of course content and useful information

  • 3 x MP3s for use in practice and during birth

  • Refreshments (tea/coffee/water and plenty of treats).

  • Telephone and email support before, during and after the course.

  • A free Skype session or at-home visit with mum-to-be just before your birth to go over any last-minute questions and to focus on some relaxations.

 

When should YOU attend?

Given the choice, I would advise doing the course any time from your 20th week of pregnancy. The earlier you do it, the more you can enjoy the benefits during your pregnancy as well as at the birth of your baby. It will also mean you have plenty of time for everything you learn on the course to become second nature. However, you can learn Hypnobirthing skills at any time, and I’ve taught plenty of mum-to-be well into their 3rd trimester (even 39 weeks!), so it's never too late to start as long as we complete before you give birth!

 

what's the investment?

Private courses cost £345 and can be paid by BACS, PayPal or cheque. If you need to chat about paying in instalments, just get in touch.

THE GROUP HYPNOBIRTHING COURSE

I offer Hypnobirthing courses in a group setting, and so that you get the most out of the course I have a maximum of six couples per course.

What you'll learn and what the course covers is exactly the same as the Private Course as listed above. The difference being there will be other parents-to-be with you in the room during the course.

This means that there’s less opportunity to make the course bespoke to your circumstances, although I do endeavour to cover as much as people’s personal situations as possible.

What i can promise

  • There is no group work! I will never ask you to practice anything with anyone other than your partner.

  • You don't have to share anything you’re not comfortable with! The sharing elements of the course are done as homework in the privacy of your couple.

I also offer an Express Masterclass which is 4 hours in length (i.e. half the length of both the private and group course), which is £195 and is completely bespoke to your needs. If you are short on time, late in pregnancy or feel this format would work best for you, do contact me here and we can discuss over email or phone.
