What does the course teach?

Hypnobirthing and antenatal education

I have used my experience as a midwife and antenatal education teacher to provide you with all the tools you need for a calm, comfortable and positive birth. 

We will discuss

  • Hypnotherapy - why your mind is just as important as your body in birth. 
  • The anatomy and physiology of birth. 
  • What to expect in the different stages of labour. 
  • Active birth positions and techniques
  • Why your birth partners are so important and how they can support you 
  • How to create the perfect environment for birth
  • Hypnosis scripts, visualisations, hypnosis anchors and affirmations - how practising these will help you achieve deep relaxation and therefore promote a comfortable and positive birth experience.
  • How to decide your birth choices and place of birth.
  • Medical assistance - what's involved, what are your options and when is it needed. We will cover some scenarios in this section. 
  • Aromatherapy in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. Learn how to safely use oils for massage, compresses in labour, baths and make a bespoke massage oil.
  • The early postnatal days.

Hypnosis and good evidence based antenatal education is powerful and can improve your knowledge, perception and experience of birth. Preparing your mind as well as your body for birth is essential.

What's included?

  • The Hypnobirthing Book by Katherine Graves
  • 3 MP3s so you can practice your relaxations at home and use during your birth.
  • Course workbook
  • Bespoke aromatherapy massage oil you will blend on the day. 
  • A set of positive affirmation cards for pregnancy and birth. 
  • Support via email and telephone until your baby is born.
  • Online private support group so you can make local friends and support each other.
  • A social reunion after all of your babies are born. 
  • A one hour postnatal support home visit

At the hypnobirth school our aim is to make your pregnancy and birth a positive experience and your education informal, fun and empowering. For you to feel supported and make friends for life. We want you to feel confident and excited about your birthing abilities, know exactly what to do on your babies birthday and feel part of an amazing network, that will carry you through pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
