What is covered in a n Antenatal & hypnobirthing course?

Trust me its not all breathing and I promise I won't make you cluck like a chicken. There are too many Myths about Hypnobirthing to mention so below I break down what I actually cover in my full 10 hour programme

Your birth story hypnobirthing logo

The Physiological Bit

To understand birth, we first need to understand how your body actual works in birth. We learn how your uterus works, what hormones promote or slow down labour and how to recognise stages of labour plus how to handle them

The Psychological bit

This is where we spend most time. The mind is the most powerful tool we own and has the biggest impact on how birth progresses and how we feel about birth. We delve deep into the mind and body connection, exploring the Fear, Tension pain cycle and dig deep into how your mind control the hormones that are released. This helps you understand what you can do to direct birth

The Practical bit

I work in an interactive workshop style, so expect to get involved. I believe that by building a healthy toolkit you can prepare for any type of birth. We look closely at the vital role of the birthing partner, key positions and use several scientifically backed frameworks to build on your knowledge and empowerment. We also focus on how to make informed decisions and navigate the NHS

The Relaxing bit

Do you truly know how to relax? Like really relax? Learning how to slow your heart rate, quieten your neocortex and release tension takes practise. Here we learn the evidence behind the techniques and the practise key breathing, massage and visualisation techniques.

The Medical bit

Understanding all of your options for intervention, both pharmaceutical or not is an important way to prepare for your birth, you certainly don't want to make a decision on whether or not to have an intervention on the day of your birth without knowing the pros and the cons. Here we discuss in detail your options and help you make decision.
