A simple 4 week programme for expectant parents.
Anxiety and fear increase levels of stress hormones adrenaline
and this in turn blocks our labour and pain relieving hormones - oxytocin and endorphins.
Hypnobirthing teaches expectant parents how to manage their stress and reduce their fear and anxiety to relax appropriately and to mentally prepare the body for labour.
During Hypnobirthing classes partners learn how to be effective supporters during the labour which helps them to feel more involved in their baby's birth.
Benefits of Hypnobirthing:
#Greatly reduces and often eliminates the need for chemical pain relief and drugs
#Leaves mother alert, fresh, awake and with energy thus promoting bonding
#Helps keep oxygen supplied to baby during birthing

Check what some of our mums said about this course:
“It was wonderful – it taught me breathing techniques, coping skills, visualisation was practised and all made sense when I actually went into labour. My mind-set was so positive approaching labour and birth – this helped me and my husband”
"I managed without pain relief for a period of time and the hypnobirthing techniques allowed me to go further into labour without pain relief than if I had not have attended my class"
