Hypnobirthing Antenatal Courses taught by a Midwife in Chelmsford, Essex.

Are you looking for a professional bespoke hypnobirthing antenatal education course, provided in the comfort of your own home?

Would you like to feel educated, confident and positive about birth and the early postnatal days?

My name is Cheryl Samuels I am a practicing NHS midwife, antenatal and hypnobirthing course teacher for Bump and Baby Club across London and most importantly a mother of four children (including twins!). 

I am passionate about helping women to have a positive birth experience, however they have their babies. I myself had three very different gentle and calm births including a drug free hospital birth, an induction of labour with twins and a peaceful homebirth. I have supported hundreds of families through their journey from pregnancy, birth and parenthood as both a midwife and a teacher. I get to see first hand as a midwife that great evidence based antenatal education and hypnobirthing techniques , will make a positive difference every time, helping you to make the right informed decisions for you and your family.

What does the evidence say about hypnobirthing? 

  • Women experience shorter first and second stages of labour.
  • The use of  pharmacological analgesia is reduced.
  • Women present later at hospital (>6cm).

My courses aim to teach you how to feel confident, positive and excited about your birth. If you are feeling nervous, fearful or just want to educate yourself with great unbiased, evidence based antenatal education taught by a midwife, then this is the right course for you. 

You will learn to navigate the healthcare system, make informed decisions and learn relaxing hypnobirthing techniques , to help you have the best birth possible on the day. 

I teach a full 8 hour KG Hypnobirthing antenatal education programme, to provide you with all of the information you need for a calm, comfortable and positive birth experience however you birth your baby. 

I also offer a shorter 4 hour Essentials hypnobirthing workshop. Suitable if this is your second or subsequent pregnancy or also complements any traditional antenatal education course, if this is your first pregnancy. 

I have a FREE Introduction to hypnobirthing coming soon in May at Hummingbird Pilates and Yoga studio, Reeds Farm Estate, Roxwell Road, Writtle, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 3ST.  

Private courses start from £195 in the comfort of your own home, for more course details please click link above in menu.

'I cannot recommend highly enough the hypnobirth school . As a father-to-be the course, and Cheryl, have been invaluable for me. My wife and I are having our first child and we really didn’t know what to expect. If like me, you think that the birthing process means rushing to hospital and having doctors and midwives delivering your child then this course will help you. Now, I am looking forward to playing a huge role in supporting my wife to have a calm birth.' - Paul
