Through simple self hypnosis, specific breathing and deep relaxation exercises, hypnobirthing leads you towards a calm and relaxed birth. Our aim is to make sure you enter birthing with a feeling of knowledge, control and empowerment: we want you to enjoy birthing your baby.

Hypnobirthing can help you to release fears and anxieties you may have about giving birth, including showing you how to overcome previous traumatic births. It teaches you to understand your pregnant and labouring body, as you are talked through: conception to birth; strains on the body; imbalances in hormones and how your muscles are used in childbirth. It promotes self-awareness and self-control. Additionally, the training in self-hypnosis assists you in reaching a level of relaxation and relative calm, at the times when you need it most.
The aim? To stop your body tensing at a time when release is all important.
It also encourages you to be emotionally strong. Understanding your body during birth is empowering, which helps mum (and dad!) stay calm and focused. The shared experience of learning HypnoBirthing with your partner, or birth partner, leads to understanding and support of your needs during this incredible time, leading up to the most important moment of all – meeting your baby for the very first time.
