In light of recent events to do with Covid-19 and the relaxation of the lock down rules from the 4th July 2020 - you now have the following options to undertake the course: Online as a group; Online as a couple (private); face to face as a small group; face to face in your home as a couple (private) and as a bespoke group course (more details below).
Please be reassured that if you select an online course that the content, support and quality of information is exactly the same as it would be face to face. If you opt for face to face, I will take every necessary precaution to ensure your safety and well-being.
Course structure and pricing below:
Part 1 - The Logic
This first part is all about the basics - how and why hypnobirthing works. We explore how much power the mind can have over the body, including some brilliant practical demonstrations. We also look at the physiological side of birth and the mechanics of what your body is designed to do to get your little bundle of joy out of your belly and into the world.
Part 2 - The Techniques
Mama’s prepare to be relaxed, birth partners - you’ve got work to do. The second part covers a whole range of hypnobirthing techniques to help you stay calm during labour. Birth partners will learn how to read relaxation scripts to you as you master “Up breathing” and visualisation. We also look at the physical techniques that can help you achieve your best birth.
Part 3 - The Lead-Up
How do you know when labour is starting? What should you do during those first hours? What if baby doesn’t arrive on their “due date”, would you have a sweep, a pessary, a drip? We consider these questions and all you both need to know about the on-set of labour.
Part 4 - The Birth
The finale! The main event! Our final hours together will cover the birth itself - what to expect, step by step and how to aim for the birth you want. We also look at after the birth and early days with the baby.
After the Course - Motherhood Support
If you need me following the course, I'm always on hand to offer ongoing support during pregnancy and when your beautiful baby is in the world. I'd love to make you and your partner a cuppa and hear all about your birth story if you're happy to share - new baby squidge for me is optional!
