Why choose Hypnobirthing?
My Hypnobirthing Course is a FULL antenatal education/labour and birth preparation programme for you and your birth partner (although some women attend alone). You will learn how to relax, have fun and learn a lot too! You can choose a small group Hypnobirthing Course or a One to One Course. Many midwives are amazed at how calm and focused Hypnobirthing mothers and their birth partners are during established labour! (often doubting that they are in labour). Contact me in confidence to find out more.
I have personally done it during my own births, in hospital and at home. I have witnessed many calm and gentle births using Hypnobirthing or self hypnosis as a doula and practicing midwife. Don’t just take my word for it…see what others think about Hypnobirthing…
