Hypnobirthing Courses & Dates

“Hypnobirthing really helped me to stay calm and I would thoroughly recommend it to all mothers to assist you in having a positive birth. You wouldn’t sit an exam and expect to get good marks without preparing for it and childbirth is no different.” Andrea, Bristol.  two bumps picture

Hypnobirthing is an effective birth preparation course that teaches simple yet powerful self hypnosis, relaxation, visualization and breathing techniques, for a better birth experience.

By learning the theory behind hypnobirthing you will come to understand how your body is designed to give birth as nature intended and what factors help or hinder the birth process.

You will learn how to prepare yourself both physically and mentally for birth including bonding with your unborn baby. The course also addresses any specific worries or fears you and your birth partner may have and includes practical tips and advice for labour. (As midwives we have a lot of experience of this!) See our Frequently Asked Questions page to find out more.

We only teach the  full 12 hour course, which consists of four, three hour sessions, run over a month.  This is for you to gain the maximum benefit from the course and have the opportunity to learn and practice the techniques.

We recommend you start the course anytime after your 20 week anomaly scan. It is never too late to benefit from hypnobirthing so don’t worry if you are further on in your pregnancy, contact us to find out more.

As well as preparing for labour and birth you can also learn how to care for your new baby with our additional and unique midwife led workshopsNewborn Baby Care  and Breastfeeding. These tie in with the HypnoBirthing Philosophy and are based on the latest research.  So there is no need to do NCT or other courses.

We require a non refundable deposit to secure your place. Final payment is due two weeks before the course starts, please read our  terms and conditions.

*Please note, although we are registered midwives working within the NHS we are unable to offer specific medical advice tailored to your individual pregnancy, for this you should contact either your G.P or named midwife.
