HypnoBirthing Classes


“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable,

and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby”

Marie Mongan

I offer a range of classes each designed to cater for different circumstances and needs so if you are interested in HypnoBirthing I hope you find that there is a course or session that works perfectly for you. When deciding on the best fit for you, consider the following:

•   Your location

•   Your budget

•   How many weeks pregnant you are

•   How you are feeling through early pregnancy

•   Your ability to access classes at a venue

•   Your family circumstances

•   Whether you have done HypnoBirthing before

 

HypnoBirthing is effective for any kind of birth, be it at home or in a hospital setting. HypnoBirthing techniques can be used to achieve a calm and gentle birthing regardless of previous birthing experiences, whether the birth is spontaneous or induced, for a single baby or multiple babies and whatever path your birthing may take.

Look through the following HypnoBirthing course options to see which would fit you and your family best, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Taster Sessions

If you would like to find out more about what HypnoBirthing is all about before you commit to booking a Course then come along to a Taster Session. During the 1 hour Taster Session you can discover what HypnoBirthing is, find out how HypnoBirthing can support you in having a truly satisfying birth and see how it can benefit you and your baby.

The Taster Sessions are held on Thursday evenings at Whalley Old Grammar School Community Centre, Whalley, Lancashire. They are free of charge with no obligation to go on to book a Course, but will give you the opportunity to experience what a class would be like and find out what is covered in a full course. Please contact me to find out when the next Taster Session will be taking place.

 

Group Classes

A full HypnoBirthing Course consists of 5 weekly sessions, each around 2 and a half hours long. The sessions are spread over 5 weeks to allow time between each session to reflect on what has been covered, to practice techniques that have been taught and to allow the philosophy of HypnoBirthing to gradually become a part of your every day routine and your pregnancy and birthing mindset. You are encouraged to practice the techniques you learn in the sessions as much as you can between classes and in the time leading up to your baby’s birth.

The Course is a complete antenatal course that includes:

  •   Physiology of pregnancy and birth
  •   Breathing techniques tailored for key parts of labour
  •   Use of visualisations and affirmations
  •   Deep relaxation and hypnosis
  •   Optimal birthing positions
  •   Prenatal and postnatal bonding
  •   Natural techniques to encourage labour
  •   Specific support for birth companions
  •   Creating the perfect birthing environment
  •   Guidance for managing your birth preferences with confidence

 

Group Courses are held at Whalley Old Grammar School Community Centre in Whalley, Lancashire on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm until 9:00pm for up to a maximum of 4 couples. Whalley is easily accessible from Preston, Blackburn and Burnley.

The cost of a Group Course is £250 per couple (Mum-to-be plus birth companion, this can be whoever you choose as your support during the birth). The price includes all 5 sessions, the HypnoBirthing book and CD that accompany the course, all course resources and my support from the first session until the birth and beyond. This support could range from simple questions via text, to a catch up over a coffee to discuss techniques, to an additional session with you if required.

 

Most Group Classes are held at the The Old Grammar School Community Centre.

Private Classes

A full HypnoBirthing Course consists of 5 sessions, each around 2 and a half hours long. The sessions are spread over a period of around 5 weeks to allow time between each session to reflect on what has been covered, to practice techniques that have been taught and to allow the philosophy of HypnoBirthing to gradually become a part of your every day routine and your pregnancy and birthing mindset. You are encouraged to practice the techniques you learn in the sessions as much as you can between classes and in the time leading up to your baby’s birth.

Private Courses take place in the privacy of your own home. The content is the same as that of the Group Course but how it is covered can be tailored to your personal circumstances and needs. Additional focus can be placed on an area of particular personal relevance, deeper discussion can take place about a particular part of pregnancy or birth and you can be far more influential over how sessions are structured.

The cost of a Group Course is £325 per couple (Mum-to-be plus birth companion, this can be whoever you choose as your support during the birth). The price includes all 5 sessions, the HypnoBirthing book and CD that accompany the course, all course resources and my support from the first session until the birth and beyond. This support could range from simple questions via text, to a catch up over a coffee to discuss techniques, to an additional session with you if required.

Skype Courses are ideal if you are struggling to find childcare, don’t feel able to get to a venue for a Group Course or your location is too far away for a standard Group or Private Session.

The cost of a Skype Course is £290 per couple (Mum-to-be plus birth companion, this can be whoever you choose as your support during the birth). The price includes all 5 sessions, the HypnoBirthing book and CD that accompany the course (posted to you in advance), all course resources (emailed or posted ready for each session) and my support from the first session until the birth and beyond. This support could range from simple questions via text/email to an additional Skype session with you if required. There will be additional costs applied for international postage.

Refresher Classes

A Refresher Course may be for you if you have taken a HypnoBirthing class before, either with myself or another practitioner, and would like to refresh your memory of techniques, reflect on your birth experience, give your birth companion a boost of confidence or utilise guided relaxation and hypnosis to deal with limiting thoughts or anxieties that have come up since your last course.

These sessions would take place in the privacy of your own home. For the geographical region I cover please see the Private Classes tab or visit the contact page. The number of sessions, the length of the sessions, and the content of the sessions can be dictated by you and will be personalised to your needs and circumstances. Refresher Classes can also take place via Skype. Please get in touch to discuss what would work for you.
