ABOUT THE COURSE
What is hypnobirthing?
There are lots of assumptions about hypnobirthing; like types of birth and who it's for, what happens during it and what a 'successful' hypnobirth looks like. In reality hypnobirthing is whatever you want it to be.
You can use it during pregnancy to help with stress and bonding, you can use the theory in early labour to create the right environment for you to labour in, you can use it in active labour instead of pain relief or you can use it alongside traditional forms of pain relief. You can use it all the way through, or just the beginning or just the end. You can use the breathing without the audios, or listen to the audios but breathe however you want. You can use it at home or hospital, in inductions or caesareans. You can have a gentle birth where you stay silent and still, or you can move & stomp or do tribal dancing while chanting.
Do whatever works for you. If it helps then it's done its job.
My standard hypnobirthing workshop includes 10-12 hours of teaching covering:
For parents who wish to have a comprehensive antenatal package (eg, if you are not planning on taking any other antenatal sessions) there is the option of adding on the Practical Baby Care session (2-3 hours), which includes:
In addition to above I can also tailor courses to make them bespoke to your circumstances, with adjusted teaching time as needed. Examples are; extreme fear release, preparing for a caesarean or VBAC, and refresher courses. These can also be arranged as small group sessions if you are on an alternative antenatal course and a few of you would like to do hypnobirthing.
I am more than happy to have a chat at any time about the different options to see whether they are right for you (and whether I'm the right teacher for you).
Taster classes are also available; free classes run at my house or via Skype and paid taster sessions run in Chichester (the cost is refundable against a full course booking). To arrange a taster session please contact me.

FIRST TRI HYPNOBIRTHING
These special classes are designed for the early part of pregnancy (up to 20 weeks).
The sessions last 45 minutes and in them we look at different issues relevant to early pregnancy, such as birth anxiety and how to start to release fear, pregnancy discomforts and some techniques to ease them and we start to consider place of birth and the different pathway to birth.
As well as a discussion around pregnancy concerns, we practice a mindful breathing exercise and a guided relaxation.
