What can I expect?

It's normal to feel apprehensive about Hypnobirthing and what exactly a course might entail - honestly, you can expect a fully comprehensive, evidence based antenatal course.

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 our course together, you'll have all of the skills and techniques you need for a more confident birth.

You can also expect:

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

  • Realistic and supportive tips for coping with labour

  • Practical tools you can use to stay calm in all situations

  • 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 excited for your birth

Why Hypnobirthing Matters

A positive birth will leave you with deeper feelings of empowerment, a trust in your body and the absolute best start to your parenting journey.

But giving birth is a largely hormonal and emotional process. Expecting the worst is likely to result in a lot of fear and this can make giving birth more difficult.


Understanding this mind body connection is key when preparing for a positive birth and this is exactly why our unique antenatal courses include powerful Hypnobirthing tools and hands on relaxation techniques. 


Because having masses of information about birth will not help you to have a positive experience.


Knowing this 'stuff' will only get you so far and this is why most standard antenatal courses are rarely enough.

Are you ready for your positive birth?

Booking a Hypnobirthing course can feel like a huge investment - believe me, I get it. It's also really important that you find the right Hypnobirthing teacher for you.

If you have any questions about my courses, please do get in touch!

  • When is the best time to do a Hypnobirthing course?
    There is no right or wrong time when it comes to deciding when to start a Hypnobirthing course. Most people choose to start a course between 16 and 34 weeks of pregnancy, as this gives them plenty of time to practice the tools and techniques, but other people choose start a course at 34+ weeks. It really is completely up to you when you choose to start your Hypnobirthing course.
  • How is a Hypnobirthing course different to an NCT course?
    Hypnobirthing and NCT courses are very different. NCT courses tend to be very traditional in their approach to antenatal education and are usually ran in large groups. NCT courses will focus a lot on information giving and will cover a wide range of topics from pregnancy right the way through to caring for a newborn. Hypnobirthing courses focus more on birth preparation and mindset work. It's important to consider which topics are being covered on both courses, what is most important to you and the pros vs cons of each. Every antenatal teacher will have a different style of teaching too. That being said, it doesn't necessarily have to be an 'either or' situation. Many of my clients choose to do both a Hypnobirthing and an NCT course.
  • Can I do Hypnobirthing if I'm planning to use medical forms of pain relief?
    Hypnobirthing can be used alongside any type of pain relief you choose during labour, including medical pain relief such as gas & air, and epidurals. A high quality Hypnobirthing course explore all of your pain relief options, including natural and medical choices so that you can make an informed decision about what is right for you. It is usually possible to combine a number of pain relief methods together alongside your Hypnobirthing techniques. Whilst evidence does suggest that those who use Hypnobirthing usually find birth less painful, the goal of Hypnobirthing is not to replace pain relief.
  • Can I do Hypnobirthing if I'm planning a c-section?
    Yes! The Hypnobirthing I teach is for all births, including c-sections. Hypnobirthing can help you to understand what to expect before you go in for your c-section and also give you the tools you need to feel calm about the experience. My private Hypnobirthing courses can be tailored for those who know they want a c-section from very early on in pregnancy so we can focus on making sure you have an incredible birth. A high quality Hypnobirthing course should teach you about how to have a positive c-section even if this would not be your first preference.
