HypnoBirthing Course Outline

HypnoBirthing is about achieving trust and confidence in yourself your body and in your baby.  In today's society, our image of giving birth is strongly influenced by the media. If you are pregnant with your first baby and therefore have no experience of giving birth yourself, you may be very frightened about it.

Even if you have already experienced a birth, but for whatever reason, it was not the way you wanted it to be, you can learn to give birth without fear and with confidence.

HypnoBirthing is a complete course to prepare for childbirth. There will be 5 weekly lessons which will give you confidence, relaxation, focus and a positive outlook towards birth. You will learn breathing techniques, relaxation techniques and how to apply self-hypnosis and visualizations so that you are confident and relaxed during birth. This allows you to cooperate with your body, making the birth process easier and smoother.

My goal after the last lesson will be that you are excited and looking forward to giving birth to your baby.
