The HypnoBirthing® Course

This is an enjoyable, relaxing course which will give you a thorough physical and psychological preparation for a comfortable experience of childbirth.  

During the five 2-and-a-half hour classes you and your birthing companion will:

  • Be given exercises to practice – alone and with your birthing companion – to ensure that you feel really confident in your ability to relax and birth easily.
  • See inspiring videos of women birthing with comfort and ease without a screaming, cursing, begging-for-the-drugs rant among them!
  • Learn techniques to deepen your relaxation and be given the necessary knowledge on how to work with midwives and other medical staff so you don't have to concern yourself with anything apart from your own relaxation.
  • Release anxieties or fears you may have about giving birth – or any previous traumatic birth experience.

You will learn:

  • Relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to eliminate the fear and tension that cause long labour and pain, replacing them with confidence, calm and comfort.
  • Special breathing techniques for each stage of labour.
  • Other techniques to produce a shorter, more comfortable labour.
  • To create and control the body's own natural anaesthesia.
  • The source of the myth that pain accompanies birthing.
  • Why women in other cultures have birthing almost entirely free of discomfort.
  • How the mother's body is designed to work in neuromuscular harmony with nature throughout labour.
  • To practice deep relaxation during and between uterine surges.
  • The importance of prenatal and perinatal bonding.
  • How the mother's body is designed to nurture and birth the baby with ease and comfort.
  • Natural ways to bring about birthing without artificial induction.
  • How to bring your baby into the world without the trauma or violence of hard pushing.

All materials (including book, CDs, scripts and handouts) and refreshments are provided

Ongoing support via email or phone is available throughout the course and afterwards.

The skills you learn on the HypnoBirthing course will be beneficial in many other areas of your life.
