Glow Births CIC is a community interest company established in 2018 offering inclusive group hypnobirthing classes, as well as subsidised antenatal sessions for those on a low income or in full-time education. The sessions are interactive, lively and aimed at those who would prefer not to attend traditional antenatal classes where you are expected to make friends based on your baby's expected due date.
I created the company as I felt there was a widening gap between those who did the traditional big national antenatal classes, and those who felt those classes were either too far out of budget, or didn't reflect their personality. I became an antenatal teacher because I felt that everybody should have access to good quality and unbiased antenatal education but that in reality it was very often it was a two-tier system, with those on a lower income often left behind.
While I still feel passionately about this, I have made the difficult decision not to currently run and group classes in person, although I will still be scheduling ad-hoc virtual sessions.
Although I love running group classes, it is difficult in the best of times to schedule and fill the classes. Sadly due to the social distancing measures currently in place, with class sizes restricted and continued anxiety from many about attending in person classes, it feels that group classes that are low priced are not viable to run. As a result I have also suspended the dedicated Glow Births website, and redirected to this website. When I do run group classes I will put them as events on Facebook, so if you are interested in Glow Births CIC, follow the page there.
I will be running 1:1 classes via West Sussex Hypnobirthing (both in person and virtually), and may schedule group classes again towards the end of the year depending on interest. If you are in need of antenatal classes but are unable to afford other classes then please contact me for information about what subsidised classes I may be able to offer.
If you would like to be kept up to date with any of the classes for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021 please join my mailing list or follow me on Facebook.
