What’s involved?

Hypnobirthing is a modern antenatal course that combines birth education, neuroscience, mindfulness and hypnosis for birth.

And the essence of Hypnobirthing is holding your mind gently focused through birth, in a positive and useful way.

Hypnbirthing is:

  • Having confidence in your ability to give birth
  • Using the power of your mind and body to have a better experience and reduce pain
  • Birthing in a way that feels right for you

Hypnobirthing includes:

Autonomous Hypnobirthing® is my multilayered approach of beautiful techniques & flexible methods, meaning that your hypnobirthing can be what you need, when you need it most.

 

Because if you can’t do this easily – how can you expect anyone else to?

4 Themed classes

Class 1 – First steps

A lesson if life!

Let’s demystify Hypnobirthing & birth and get you fired up for a fabulous birth. The way the mind works and how it affects your life, not just birth! This is your time to relax and reset, build your confidence, knowing where birth fear and pain come from, and prepare yourself with the techniques to stop them in their tracks.

 

Class 2 – The Big Easy

The class you’ll want to do again and again!

You’ll learn everything from Hypnobirthing Anchors, affirmations, your subconsious colour, to Glove Anaesthesia and the Breathing Queen. This is about deep connection with your Hypnobirthing skills and deep connection with your partner and baby. And I’ll teach you the medical hypnosis pain techniques as they apply to hypnobirthing that ‘the modern hypnobirthing machine‘ won’t teach you.

Class 3 – The Game Changer

You’ve got skills honey!

You have your Hypnobirthing foundations. And your physical & emotional needs are THE SAME however you birth. So now we’ll apply the principles of physiological birth to supported birth, cesarean birth, induction of labour & augmentation as you learn to use your hypnobirthing however you choose to birth. And we’ll talk right to choice, your right to decline, how to speak up without being birthzilla and being good with being one as well! Be empowered and content to birth your way on your day, even when medical surprises arise.

Class 4 – Your Big Day!

And it all comes together beautifully

Let’s put this all together – how birth works on the day, how to use your hypnobirthing through the stages of labour, all the wonderful things your partner can do too. If you don’t know already (and even if you do!) let’s think birth location. After all, this is the one birthday when surprises aren’t fun. But being prepared can make such a difference. And let’s talk about baby! This is your baby’s journey too, so learn how to get even more out your Hypnobirthing and nurture those first precious moments together.

Plus hypnobirthing relaxations & birth hypnosis techniques each week. So you can be confident with your decisions, techniques, affirmations, breathing, Hypnobirthing MP3s, and free flow hypnosis.

I just breathed my baby out! Hypnobirthing allowed me to go with the flow of pregnancy & birth! It put me in a positive, calm & accepting state of mind which was so important. Especially because this was my first pregnancy and I didn’t know what to expect from labour!
