I know what you’ve been told about giving birth.

To brace yourself and to ‘expect the worst’.  That there’s no point planning for birth because it ‘all goes out the window anyway’.

And, if you’re anything like me, you massively underestimated how often you’d hear these comments and, more importantly, how they would make you feel. So now you're left feeling scared, anxious, and really worried about giving birth.

And yes, giving birth rarely ever feels totally pain free or goes according ‘to plan’, but this is exactly why you need practical relaxation techniques and the knowledge about all of your options

No one can predict exactly what will happen during your birth, but with my antenatal courses you can approach the experience feeling empowered, calm and absolutely confident that you have all of the tools you need to have a positive birth.

What's included?

The cost of your antenatal course includes​

  • The chance to submit any specific questions or worries you have before the course begins. This allows me to get to work on tailoring your sessions

  • Attendance for both you and your birthing partner on the course, with plenty of time to practice your Hypnobirthing techniques


  • Light refreshments

  • A Hypnobirthing course workbook and birth plan guide

  • Essential handouts and access to my online resource hub

  • A set of powerful relaxation tracks to download



  • A luxury pregnancy goody bag, brimming with treats to support you on your Hypnobirthing journey and beyond

  • My free ongoing support right up until your baby's birth

Whether you want a homebirth, a hospital birth or a c-section, my antenatal courses will support you to feel empowered, informed and totally confident. I'll teach you exactly how to adapt your Hypnobirthing techniques no matter how birth unfolds.

What can I expect?

It's normal to feel apprehensive about Hypnobirthing and what a course might entail - honestly, you can expect a fully comprehensive, evidence based antenatal course with lots of simple yet effective relaxation techniques for birth. Birth partners can also feel really unsure before the course too. If this is the case, I would recommend you watch my free introduction to Hypnobirthing together before the course.

By the end of the course, you'll understand the science behind Hypnobirthing, learned powerful breathing techniques and have an abundance of relaxation strategies designed to help you feel calm and in control.

You can also expect:

  • To meet a friendly group of other expectant parents, all due around the same time

  • Intimate antenatal sessions, with no more than 5 couples in attendance

  • Realistic and supportive tips for managing contractions

  • Practical tools for your birthing partner

  • Knowledge on how to have a positive experience regardless of how birth actually happens

  • A relaxing, stress free day where you can finally get all the answers to your questions and start feeling confident for birth!

Why Blooming Births?

I am the North Easts top recommended Hypnobirthing practitioner from Jesmond Natural & Fertility and I pride myself on offering honest, bespoke and evidence based antenatal courses, developed after years of extensive training.

#After giving birth to my own two babies, I continue to work closely with the Newcastle Maternity units and stay up to date with current working practices so that you are well informed about what to expect from your local maternity unit.

This isn't like an NCT or other antenatal course where the same class is run month after month - my Hypnobirthing courses are entirely bespoke to you. Before your course begins, you'll have the chance to submit any specific questions or worries you have. I'll then get to work on tailoring sessions to meet your needs!

Course sizes are kept small and intimate, with space for no more than 5 couples.

I'm also an affiliate member of The Royal College of Midwives and a breastfeeding peer support volunteer. I continually update my knowledge, attending training with the UKs leading midwives, doulas and birth rights consultants.
