My courses follow the KGHypnobirthing programme.  The founder Katharine Graves is the most experienced hypnobirthing teacher in the country and has used her knowledge and experience to develop this original UK hypnobirthing programme, tailored to mothers in the UK.  The training that teachers receive is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

Further information can be found at  www.kghypnobirthing.com

Full Hypnobirthing Course

The full course is recommended for anybody not previously trained in hypnobirthing.  This includes first-time parents-to-be as well as people who already have children but did not take a full hypnobirthing training course first time around.

My classes follow KG Hypnobirthing's tried and tested syllabus and include:

  • How our bodies are naturally designed to give birth

  • The influence of mind over body

  • How to maintain a relaxed state of mind

  • Creating an ideal birth environment

  • Breathing exercises

  • Deep relaxations

  • Visualisations

  • A massage technique for use during labour

  • The active role of the father/partner

  • Understanding how ‘the system’ works and how to work with it to achieve the best outcomes for you and your baby

  • Decision-making and maintaining a sense of control

  • Writing a birth plan

  • A perineal massage technique to reduce the risk of episiotomy or tearing

The following course materials are provided to all couples:

  • The Hypnobirthing Book by Katharine Graves

  • The KG Hypnobirthing course relaxation audio Colour & Calmness (mp3 link)

  • Handouts to help you to practise at home

  • Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits!

After the course you are welcome to contact me to ask any questions or talk over anything you might have on your mind relating to your pregnancy and birth.  I want you to have the best possible birth experience, so the end of that final class need not mean the end of our contact.  Make the most of me :)

Group Classes

Group classes are great for meeting like-minded people and forging relationships that can lead to a vital support network.  In addition to the classes, we set up a WhatsApp group and arrange a meet-up after the babies are born.

 

We cover the syllabus over 10 hours, split over 4 evenings or 2 full weekend days, according to the preferences of the group.  Most evening courses are split into four 2.5 hour sessions.  Most weekend courses are run over two weekend days.  Click here for more information on the location of classes.

Courses are limited to 5 couples to ensure adequate time for questions and discussion.  £250 per couple including course materials and light refreshments.

 

Upcoming courses:

- 23rd and 30th January and 20th and 27th February, 7-9.30pm

- 19th and 26th March and 2nd and 9th April, 7-9.30pm

- Daytime course in May/June - details TBC

One-to-One Classes

One-to-one classes might suit you if you have little time available, would feel more comfortable in this setting or have particular issues to discuss, including previous birth trauma. 

 

I have been trained in the Rewind technique for the treatment of PTSD.  Around 3% of women are thought to suffer from PTSD following childbirth, so it is not rare.  This short treatment can improve quality of life and enable women to enjoy their subsequent pregnancy and face birth with confidence.  Further information about the technique can be found here.

Classes are held in the comfort of your own home at a mutually convenient time.  The 10-hour course can be split into 2, 3 or 4 sessions and would normally be held over evenings or weekends, although some weekdays could be arranged.

£380 per couple including course materials.

Hypnobirthing Refresher Course

Pregnant and wanting to hypnobirth again?  I offer a 3-hour private class to couples who took a full hypnobirthing course in a previous pregnancy and would like a refresher.

The class would include a recap of how hypnobirthing works, how to facilitate labour, a debrief of previous births, and getting going again with some practice.

This class would be held in the comfort of your own home at a mutually convenient time.

I would provide the same course materials provided to those taking the full hypnobirthing course including:

  • The Hypnobirthing Book by Katharine Graves

  • The KGHypnobirthing course relaxation audio Colour & Calmness (mp3 link)

  • Handouts to help you to practise at home

  • Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits

£150 per couple including course materials.

I currently only teach private refresher classes but might be able to organise group classes if there is sufficient demand so ask your friends if they are interested!
