Easy, effective techniques to feel calm & relaxed throughout pregnancy. Feel confident about labour & birth, knowing you are well prepared and have all you need to have a positive experience, no matter what path birth takes. No-nonsense, down to earth, affordable classes suitable for all types of birth.

I have worked with many women & birth partners to achieve this. Take a look at what they thought - here

A calmer pregnancy

 As a Mother of four, I completely understand that pregnancy can be a rollercoaster of emotions, as well as full of physical changes. Pregnancy relaxation sessions can really benefit you in terms of physical and emotional well-being. By learning effective relaxation techniques you can -

  • Increase feelings of well-being, physically & emotionally.

  • Help you deal with anxiety & stress and feel more confident - now and into the future.

  • Cope better with physical and emotional changes. 

  • Manage fatigue - relaxation is great for renewing your energy levels!

Enhance Your Birth Experience

If like lots of women you are wondering how you'll get through birth, you're not alone! Many women, myself included when I was pregnant, worry about the birth. Even if you're actually looking forward to the birth and feeling good about it - there will always be plenty of negative stories and doubts surrounding you during pregnancy. No matter how you're feeling about the birth, it's good to get prepared! 

By using self-hypnosis to prepare for birth, you can -

 

  • Feel more prepared to give birth the way that is right for you - my classes support any type of birth

  • Learn effective ways to work with your body to enhance pain-relieving endorphins, while using hypnosis to lower your perception of pain - whether or not you use additional pain relief

  • Overcome fear and concerns about birth 

  • Learn effective breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques to feel calmer and more in control.

 

In addition, your birth partner will gain -   

                                                                                                               

  • A full toolbox of techniques to help you through all stages of labour

  • An understanding of the birth process and what you need

  • Easy, effective ways to help keep you calm in labour

  • Stress management & mind-calm skills they can use in everyday life, well beyond birth - lots of birth partners tell me they use this for sports, workplace stress and more!

You may be wondering - Is this for me?

 

Hypnobirthing is a set of tools and techniques to enhance your birth experience, no matter what path birth takes. It is suitable if

  • This is your first or even your 10th pregnancy

  • You are having a caesarean section

  • You are having a home or hospital birth

  • Your pregnancy is considered low or high risk

  • You are having a VBAC - Vaginal Birth After Caesarean

  • You are having more than one baby - twins or more

Not your average classes!

What makes my classes worth it? I have been supporting women & birth partners since 2013. I know what works and what doesn't. There is no wishy-washy stuff in my course - just no-nonsense, effective, down to earth techniques you can personalise and make your own.  My courses are not a one-size-fits-all or standard course, nor are they scripted from a textbook. I work with the people there on the day, adapting things to their needs. I like to utilize a number of techniques including confidence building, mind calm & pain management while ensuring women have all the skills needed to adapt to changes in plan - birth is unpredictable! I make sure you are able to approach birth with a full set of skills to get you through any situation, and do not promote any particular type of birth. I have supported women through all types of birth including caesarean, surrogacy, high-risk hospital consultant-led birth, and low-risk home birth. I also have first-hand experience of this - as a mother of four, I have been there and done this. You have the benefit and real-life experience of someone who has birthed four times, and experienced birth with and without these techniques. I have had four very different experiences - from drug-free straightforward birth, all the way to high dependency and epidural. My classes are honest, supportive and down to earth!

 

Let's have a chat about how we can work together to help you toward a calmer pregnancy and better birth experience!
