I don’t teach you how to breathe, you know how to do that, 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 taught Hospital antenatal classes I can vouch for that!

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 post out a copy of the excellent book “Effective Birth Preparation” by Maggie Howell. Birth partners have a track just for themselves as well.
