Read on to see what all the hype is about!
What Even is Hypnobirthing?
Look no Further!
Congratulations, you are pregnant!
Pregnancy is bloody amazing, but I know full well that it can be totally daunting.
Don’t worry, this is why you are here! I have got you. First things first, no more crap birth stories. I have no idea what it is about people but as soon as you tell someone you are expecting, the come at you with literally all the terrible birth stories!
Hypnobirthing is all about reframing the language used around birth. Get Susan from down the road to keep her tales of long labours to herself. Also, I fully encourage you not to watch One Born, it is not preparation, it is truly terrible!
I have trained with The Birth Uprising. I am shout it from the rooftops proud of that, because I have been taught by (in my humble opinion) the best.
I can confirm for you now, that I like evidence based, I like science, I like birth rights. I am not here for you opening like a flower. That analogy doesn’t work for me, I could never get into that.
So, WHAT IS IT? It is you, learning to believe your own hype. Its changing your mindset and believing that your body was made to do this.
It’s about getting the myths in the bin. Understanding the stages of labour, the hormones released, what they are and how to control them and how they affect your labour. It is a beautiful mix of birth rights (and that is where I am at 100%). It is confidence in your body, learning how to breathe, positive affirmations, positive language and learning how to control all of these things. It is also learning how to pull it all back to calm when the unexpected happens.
Hypnobirthing is the best way to build confidence for you and your birth partner in what to expect, and what you can and can’t do (spoiler alert, you are an adult you can do as you please).
Hypnobirthing is you taking control. It is you gifting yourself the birth you deserve. I can’t promise you the ‘perfect’ birth, but I can promise you on this journey you will figure out what is the perfect birth for you, and you will go for it. You are going to have to tools to smash this whatever the hell happens, because you know what you want, and you know what your body will do. You can do anything.
This stuff is exciting and I CANNOT WAIT to get started!
What do you get from a class?
In this course you get 4 2 hour classes and then a 2 hour preparing to feed class…this course is designed for you and your birth partner, because your birth partner being able to advocate for you, and generally know what to expect is really important.
The classes cover (in no particular order) what hypnobirthing is, anchoring, changing your mindset, the hormones of labour, the science of hypnobirthing, navigating the NHS, birth rights, visualisation, affirmations, breathing techniques, section birth, induction, physiological birth, pain relief, the stages of labour, the 4th trimester, womb to world, one whole class is dedicated to breastfeeding, and what to expect from your body, and what to expect from your baby and honestly I could go on. There isn’t much I don’t cover!
You also get my continued support and as a doula, I honestly like to know how you are and to check in, and make sure you have every question answered. If that's not for you that's absolutely ok, I'll take your lead!

A goody bag full of useful stuff to help too!
You also get the full digital pack, to refer back to and go over with whoever needs to see it.
You will be added to a whatsapp group for extra support and I’ll be in there too to give you any help, if you are doing a one to one class then you will have access to me on WhatsApp when ever you need me. If I don't know the answer I will go out of my way to find it for you! Once all your babies arrive, coffee morning, local pram walks and general hanging out.
Because honestly, community is key to feeing supported, and who can support you better than people there walking the same path as you?
One to one again you can expect to have access to me whenever you need, generally postpartum sees a lot of questions around feeding and various other things, and I think it helps hugely to know you have support from pregnancy, birth and after.
As ever payment plans are available and I can arrange these however you like! Just send me a message!
