Frequently asked questions
What is Hypnobirthing?
Is Hypnobirthing right for me?
In one word - YES! Hypnobirthing can be practiced by anyone at any stage of their pregnancy. Hypnobirthing is about achieving the birth that is right for you and your baby. Hypnobirthing does not guarantee you the 'perfect birth' but its will always make a difference. I will teach you techniques to help you relax, be confident in you bodys ability, work with your body and remain in control. A mother who uses hypnobirthing techniques is more likely to describe their birth experience as empowering and powerful and one of their biggest achievements in life
Can my partner come along?
Of course, birth partners play a crucial part in your birth and this course will help prepare them for this incredibly important role. Some birthing partners have reported feeling 'unsure of what to do' when their loved ones are in labour. This course will demonstrate how to work with your partner as you prepare to welcome your baby to the world. Throughout the course, you will practice different techniques, some of which are useful for relaxing in everyday life, not just when in labour. An added benefit for you both!
When should I attend the course?
You can attend my course at ANY stage of your pregnancy. The earlier you attend the more time you have to practice your techniques. Most women come to me around 25-33 weeks but you can certainly start earlier if you like. The relaxation techniques are benificial in pregnancy as well as labour so you will start to feel the benefits straight away. If you are towards the end of your third trimester and you have only just discovered hypnobirthing, its not too late, get in touch as soon as possible and I will arrange a time to help you.
How long is the course?
The full course is 10 hours long. This consists of 4 separate sessions spread over 4 weeks. 1-1 sessions have more flexibility. Evening and weekend courses are available to help with any prior work commitments.
Do you need to be a first time mum?
Absoluetly not. Hypnobirthing works for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th....time mums. Whether you are expecting your first baby or have experienced birth before, hypnobirthing can make a huge difference to your mindset, reduce anxiety and fear and help you to look forward to the birth of your baby.
