Hypnobirthing Course Information
The course content includes:
When you book your full hypnobirthing course, you get:
Expectant parents are encouraged to enrol on their hypnobirthing course anytime from the 20-week scan. Most couples tend to start between 26-33 weeks. The earlier you learn the range of tools and techniques, the more time you have to practice. However, it is never too late in pregnancy to learn and effectively use hypnobirthing techniques for a better birth experience.
It is ideal to attend the course with your partner/birth companion, however expectant mothers who attend all or part of the course on their own can equally benefit from hypnobirthing.
'Childbirth is a powerful and empowering experience.
Group courses are taught in small groups, usually 2-7 couples. The course includes approximately 10-12 hours of teaching time, and is normally taught either over two full weekend days or over four short sessions in the day or evening.
Group courses enable you to benefit from the full hypnobirthing programme plus meet other parents-to-be. Many mothers report that besides having a beautiful birth as a result of their ZenBirth course, they also made wonderful, like-minded friends.
'I particularly enjoyed the size of the class and the inclusive nature of each activity for both expectant parents. Individuals could participate as little or as much as they felt comfortable. Those who were a little more shy/reluctant, like my husband, were given the opportunity to ask questions and talk to others .'
'We loved our hypnobirthing course. We learned loads and made lovely friends!'
Your private sessions are arranged with your instructor at times and dates to suit you, and normally take place in the comfort of your home. Private sessions are also available via Skype. Discounts are normally available if you wish to book a private course together with another couple or two.
'We did a 2-day course privately in our family home. I was a little nervous that the experience may be intense, and how well I would take to it. It was fantastic and was just what we needed! After every activity I felt able to say what worked and we felt encouraged to go with what was working well for us. There were no 'shoulds'! Thank you for creating such an easy and relaxed atmosphere which really helped us learn and experience as much as possible in a short amount of time.'
The refresher courses are for those who have completed a full hypnobirthing course previously and wish to update their knowledge and practice, as well as receive valuable support in preparation for your new baby.
The refresher session is tailored to your specific needs. During your refresher you can expect to enjoy deep relaxation and hypnosis, practice of all techniques, discussion of birth options and preferences and support with any concerns you may have.
Refreshers include approximately 3-4 teaching hours plus a telephone consultation prior to the in-person session. On-going support is also included, from the time of booking until baby arrives, and after if needed. If needed, hypnobirthing recordings are provided, and other materials as appropriate.
'We are very glad we opted to do a refresher course. It was tailored to us and provided a very useful reminder of all the techniques we learnt on our initial course. Thank you!'
