The Complete Hypnobirthing Programme - Group classes and one-to-one
The Hypnobirthing Birth Preparation workshops are based on the Little Birth Company’s Hypnobirthing Programme which is a complete Birth Preparation Programme aimed at supporting you to plan for a calm, confident & positive birth. I draw on my experience as a birth doula having accompanied numerous and varied births and teaching one to one hypnobirthing to many families and have added practical knowledge of birth to the workshop to give you practical hands on tools to help you along your birth journey.
The hypnobirthing classes are designed to equip you and your birth partner with all the necessary tools to enjoy a calm pregnancy and a positive birth experience. We cover all from birth physiology, birth choices and scenarios to lots of practical skills for you and your birth partner, such as massage, the use of rebozo and aromatherapy. The hypnobirthing scripts (guided relaxations) are aimed at inducing a relaxing and calm state and through their practice you can easily trigger this calm state during the birthing process, encouraging a shorter and more comfortable labour as the body will be doing what is intended to do.
The workshop will help you understand the physical and emotional aspects of birth and the hormones that intervene in this remarkable process. The information and materials included also help partners feel more prepared to practically support and hold you in a protective space.
You will get practical information on all possible birth choices, evidence-based information, local hospital information and successfully tried and tested techniques to support your birth choices. You will also get handouts, downloads and relaxation scripts for you to practice at home.
After the workshops I remain available to you, via email or phone for ongoing support till the birth of your baby (or babies!)
The group workshops are held in one of the beautiful and welcoming studios at The Therapy Centre in Central Reading (RG1 2SB)
