Is Hypnobirthing Right For Me?

Book Now

“If I had not done your course I think I would have been a complete mess, instead I felt calm and positive going into labour and trusted my instincts a lot more during. I felt more in control of what was happening around me and was able to communicate with the midwives throughout. Thank you for giving me that knowledge. I will definitely continue using the methods as I have found them useful when generally stressed or anxious” Natalie, 2016

Pain: With hypnobirthing, we give you a fantastic method of pain management.  Did you know that your expectations of pain have a stronger influence on your experience of pain, than drugs do? Did you know that your experience of pain is significantly affected by fear? Did you know that by relaxing, you can reduce your sensations of pain? This is not mumbo jumbo. It has been scientifically demonstrated by neuroscientists and psychologists.

“I felt in control and the contractions were entirely manageable” Anna, 2013

Birth:  With hypnobirthing, we focus on the positive aspects of birth.  Did you know that birth can be a positive experience?  Did you know that your body has been designed to birth in peaceful, calm, loving way?  The hormones involved in birth aren’t adrenalin (the fear, emergency hormone).  They are endorphins (the feel good, pain killing relaxation hormone) and oxytocin (the love hormone).  But in a society which portrays birth as loud, scary and dramatic, we have lost touch with this basic fact about birth.  Why not get back in touch with the positive aspects of birth, to help you look forward to meeting your baby?

“It was really calm in the delivery room and the staff all thought the music should be piped into the other rooms as it worked so well!” Frances, after her first baby, 2012

Dads: With hypnobirthing, we focus on dads.  Did you know that the most important thing that a birthing companion can do, when at a birth, is remain calm?  Did you know that your adrenalin levels may rise during labour, fuelled by your instinct to protect your partner?  This might make the birth more difficult?  This class is designed to help you to enjoy the birth of your baby, by feeling confident, in control, loving and calm.

“I was part of it, rather than a spectator” Ross, first time dad, 2009

Babies:  With Hypnobirthing, we focus on your pregnancy. You take time out every day to listen to your hypnotic MP3s. Taking time out to relax each day, in a deep and hypnotic way, releases endorphins into your body, and these cross the placenta to your baby.  The hormones that you release during pregnancy affect the brain development of your baby. Time and time again, we hear people talk about how calm their babies are.  We believe that if babies could talk, they would choose a hypnobirth.

“She came out calm, taking in her surroundings in a calm manner” Anna, 2013

Do not be put off by people who tell you that you need to do a longer course to feel the benefits.  This simply isn’t true. You do need to practice regularly, and we show you how to make sure that happens.
