Hypnobirthing Antenatal


You and your family deserve to have the birth that is right for you. One that leaves you with a feeling of confidence, empowerment and satisfaction. Hypnobirthing is proven to help expectant mums to achieve this, with far less likely to describe the birth of their baby as painful or traumatic and less likely to request an epidural or other medical pain relief.

Nothing to do with being hypnotised… the hypnobirthing approach is simply an antenatal toolkit. Brimming with all the tactics you need to enjoy a more relaxed, natural, instinctive birth; irrespective of whether your birth results in a natural or caesarean section delivery.

wise hippoMy Wise Hippo Hypnobirthing Course offers parents-to-be the opportunity to take control of their birth journey. The 10 hour programme gives you flexibility, as you can choose from either 4 x 2.5 hour classes or two 5 hour classes, and aims to educate and inspire. Leaving expectant mums and dads calm, relaxed and confident that they will achieve the birth that is right for them.

* A workbook and 5 x mp3s are also provided to expectant mums and their partners, supporting practice at home.
