Taking you from scared and anxious, to confident and powerful. 


Did you know when we feel afraid or stressed our amazing body can sense something isn’t right and labour can slow down or stop progressing? This can then lead to further medical interventions.  If we feel scared our bodies produce adrenaline which is a hormone not needed during childbirth and can prevent other important hormones from coming out to play, such as oxytocin. 


This hypnobirthing course will teach you skills and techniques to stay calm and in control of your birth. When we feel calm and supported, our bodies can produce oxytocin which is the hormone needed for labour to progress. It's what stimulates our contractions or surges. When we produce oxytocin we can also produce endorphins which are the body's own natural pain reliever, which can be more powerful than morphine. 


This is the basis of the hypnobirthing course. One day to change how you feel about birth. Unprogramming the mind and all the negative assumptions we have built up so you can really start to look forward to your birth and meeting your baby. Everyone deserves the birth they desire and should be able to look back and feel like superwoman!

This is a one day interactive and engaging course, which incorporates some movement, breathwork, science and fun! By the end you will confident, prepared and starting to work on your birth plan.

It didn't go entirely to plan! But I suppose the main thing to take away from it was that I genuinely believed that my body would manage to do what was needed even when others did not; (they were literally about to perform an episiotomy after the push before *** came out).  I stayed calm when there was rising panic around me and I never gave up. I think without hypnobirthing it would have been a completely different story as I have never felt so strong through fear in my whole life. So thank you.
