Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal programme that will empower you and leave you feeling confident and excited about giving birth to your baby. We cover everything that you would expect from an antenatal course such as where to have your baby, what to expect during birth, the what ifs of birth and how your partner can best support you during birth. We also explain the science behind birth, the use of relaxation scripts, visualisations and massage techniques. These techniques combined aim to remove any preconceived idea about birth being a negative, traumatic experience and give you more of a positive outlook on birth. We also include an infant feeding and baby-care workshop to ensure you feel prepared for those first few weeks with your little one.
