This special day will be led by myself drawing on all my knowledge as a hypnobirthing practitioner, birth/postnatal doula, prenatal yoga teacher and mother of two.
“After having the most beautiful home water birth just 4 months ago, I feel inspired to teach others about how empowering birth can truely be. Being in a calm environment and using all my relaxation techniques, I gave birth calmly and easily even after being labeled ‘high risk’ in my pregnancy. There was no pain present just power. I feel so excited to share these techniques with you.”
It will be a very relaxed setting for expectant mothers and their birth partner (partner, sister, mother, friend) to educate themselves about the labour and birth process. The main focus will be on understanding the birth process and the choices available to you, as well as removing any fear surrounding birth. My aim is to cover important detailed information which will empower you to make informed choices about labour and birth.
This will be a very in-depth workshop covering a range of techniques so you can take what most resonates with you.

This is a very special opportunity to prepare over just a one day course! My hypnobirthing courses are usually a minimum of 4 weeks so this day is not to be missed. It will be packed full of useful information to leave you feeling confident and relaxed.
The session will enable you as a couple to work together, gain confidence and most importantly discover what you both want from your birth experience. It is a unique opportunity for you and your partner to connect with your baby, explore what support might mean for you, how you can work together to empower the mother and create an environment for a calm birth.
The cost per couple is £65

WHEN TO TAKE THIS WORKSHOP:
The workshop is suitable for all birth choices!
The bottom line is, anytime before you go into labour is a good time to take this workshop, but enrolling after month 5 or 6 of your pregnancy is recommended. Even if it is not your first pregnancy, you may want to consider attending as every birth is different, so all can benefit from a refresh. Keep in mind that the sooner you register, the more likely you are to ensure you have secured a place.
THINGS TO BRING:
Food for a Lunchtime Food Share- whatever you can bring.
