I don’t teach you HOW to breathe, you know how to do that, i.e. there are no complicated routines to learn, but using the breath we cover natural ways to reduce pain, to breathe effectively alongside deep relaxation techniques and how your partner can encourage you in this. You learn self-hypnosis skills to overcome fear and increase confidence and to reduce the negative impact of fear and anxiety on your body. In a nutshell this is hypnobirthing! Most women book from 26 to 36 weeks. This is the perfect complement to NCT / NHS classes, as it covers areas that are not always included and as a very experienced NCT Teacher who has for many years also taught Hospital antenatal classes I can vouch for that!
I am currently offering private courses over Zoom as follows:
This is a great complement to any other birth preparation you may be doing or works as a stand alone in itself.

The package Included are handouts emailed both before and after the sessions, plus, for the Hypnobirthing courses, hypnosis tracks and followup email support. On booking I send a number of positive birth stories for you to read along with a couple of relaxation tracks, sent by Dropbox, and, if this is your first experience of Hypnobirthing, post out a copy of the excellent book “Effective Birth Preparation” by Maggie Howell.
