What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is a comprehensive childbirth preparation course designed to empower you with the confidence needed for birthing your baby. It transcends conventional antenatal classes, drawing from scientific principles and incorporating techniques from diverse fields like neuro-linguistic programming and cognitive behavioural therapy. This approach goes beyond traditional prenatal education by guiding you through fear release, enhancing mindfulness, and nurturing a closer connection with your baby and partner. Ultimately, it equips both you and your birth partner with a profound understanding of the birthing process.

Who is Hypnobirthing for?

Are you expecting? Seeking confidence for your childbirth journey? Hoping for the right support from your care team and birth partner? Craving autonomy and respect for your birthing choices? If you answered "yes" to any of these, Hypnobirthing could be the ideal choice for you.

If you have experienced past birth trauma it is worth considering a private course, I cover within 30 miles of Reading, Berkshire and this gives you the opportunity to release previous birth trauma before moving forward towards a more positive birth story

Why choose Hypnobirthing over a traditional course

How often have you encountered traumatic or less-than-positive birth tales? Perhaps you've even experienced one yourself. What kind of birth preparation was involved in those experiences? The truth is, most individuals tend to opt for traditional antenatal education programs. While these classes hold value for many, they often overlook a crucial aspect: your mindset. Hypnobirthing places emphasis on nurturing your mind. By comprehending the mind-body connection, it equips you to grasp the hormonal dynamics of birth and dives into your rights, empowering you to feel in control and truly empowered.

Which programme is right for me?

In person Hypnobirthing programmes are held in and around Reading Berkshire. I only use venues that reflect the environment we hope to achieve in birth. Courses are held at The Little Play Lounge in Padworth or Soul Barns in Mortimer.

Private coaching is held in the comfort of your own home. I cover Berkshire, West Berkshire and some of Hampshire. 

What can you expect to learn?
