This is a comprehensive course over 4 sessions with other couples. You will receive a full Hypnobirthing and antenatal education about what happens to your body and your baby's journey during labour and birth and in the 'golden hour' after birth. I will guide you through deeply relaxing self-hypnosis exercises and visualisations that you will practice during class and between sessions. We will also do some exercises to release any fears or negative emotions you have around birth. When the time comes to have your baby everything you have learned and practiced should harmonize together; so you can listen to and work with your body in complete confidence.
You are welcome to do the classes alone, however I do encourage you to bring a birth partner so you can practice the techniques together and support each other throughout your birthing journey. As we fully cover ante-natal information you do not need to do an NCT or another birth preparation class. It also may conflict with Hypnobirthing methods and create confusion, also you shouldn't have to spend any more of your hard earned money... I promise I have it covered!
The best time to start a course is in your second trimester (from 16 to 30 weeks). To get the most out of your course it is advised that you practice the skills every day until you go into labour. I offer weekly group courses starting on a Saturday morning in my cozy, colourful home in Hove.
