My promise to you

Your birth experience matters. But other people (around 90%!) vastly underestimate what it takes to make a birth good & they fail to choose hypnobirthing. And yet pregnancy & birth often brings more challenging decisions & hurdles to cross than you could ever imagine.

But by choosing a hypnobirthing course with me? You are choosing the good birth path. A path towards birth confidence, calm & control. Where you can find birth knowledge & birth empowerment. And start building a birth that feels right for you.

And I make it easy for you. So I am here throughout your pregnancy. And I go the extra mile to make your Hypnobirthing easy, convenient and perfect for you. Everything is possible. Techniques can be adjusted or changed entirely – perfect for you. And if you can’t make a class? Let me know. Course hopping is perfect!

When my diary is full (which is disappointing for both of us) I recommend only the best alternative hypnobirthing teachers. And please be reassured; I am still here for you. Your hypnobirthing support.

Hypnobirthing FAQs

When should I start classes?

Starting between 25 - 30 weeks is the most usual with 30 weeks being the average. Hypnobirthing gives you knowledge & skills to use in pregnancy and birth so increasingly, people are starting earlier. This gives you plenty of time to practice & make full use of my ongoing support. Plus if you miss a class, we have time to catch you up on the next course!

But ultimately it's your choice. I've been booked to start from 17-41 weeks!

It's never too late for Hypnobirthing & it will always be helpful.

Is Hypnobirthing dangerous?

Good question! Short answer YES - but only for a very small number of people. Before booking Hypnobirthing or any pregnancy mediations/relaxation class you must contact me if you:

  • Suffer with Psychosis or;
  • Have a needle phobia

Neither of these conditions will automatically exclude you from Hypnobirthing / Pregnancy Meditation. But it is vital you speak to me (or any other hypnobirthing teacher you want to work with) before booking. And you will be advised to speak to your medical provider.

 

In Hypnobirthing we teach the BRAIN decision making model:

 

  • Benefits
  • Risks
  • Alternatives
  • Instinct
  • Nothing

So it's only right that you should apply this to Hypnobirthing as well!

Like anything else, there are risks with Hypnobirthing. The likelihood of being at risk is very low. But if you don't notify your hypnobirthing teacher of any contraindications?  The risk of hypnobirthing may become high.

 

So please tell your Hypnobirthing Teacher if you suffer with psychosis or have a needle phobia (many needle phobics are excluded from this risk group but we need to speak with you to be sure).

Can I do Hypnobirthing classes alone?

Absolutely. Clients attend alone for various reasons.

If you have a partner who can't attended classes but intends to be at the birth, I suggest you pass on what you've learnt. Get them involved with your hypnobirthing practice. They would also benefit from reading The Hypnobirthing Book.

Some people bring a parent or friend who is going to be at the birth. And again, if not coming to class, just tell what you want & what you'd like them to do on the day.

Hypnobirthing works just as well if you don't have a birth partner. After all, this is about you! Whilst some hypnobirthing relaxations are designed with a birth partner in mind, there are lots of variations & alternatives.

Private or Group Hypnobirthing classes?

Group classes are a nice way to make new connections and are more cost effective. If you can't make a class, hop onto another course or upgrade to a 1:1.

Private classes give you free rein. Book your classes whenever you like & frequently or far apart to suit your diary. Private classes include the luxury of being in your home & focusing on just your pregnancy. 

Support is ongoing whatever course you choose & some people make really great use of this generous offer!

Does Hypnobirthing help birth trauma?

What a good question.

If you want to know how an event can lead to trauma, please ask me. Something as simple as feeling safe & supported can make the difference between a traumatic birth & a challenging birth.

If you've experienced birth trauma, yes, hypnobirthing can help reframe that but some people need more and find Hypnotherapy beneficial.

Are your hypnobirthing classes LGBTQ+ friendly?

Absolutely. I'm delighted my classes are so popular with parents & couples within the LGBTQ+ community. Hypnobirthing is a fabulous tool to use during your baby's birth.

Whether you opt for Group Hypnobirthing classes or private classes its useful to know your preferred words, titles & pronouns. My name is Stephanie but I use Steph.
