Courses & Fees

The course is designed to provide pregnancy and birth information and hypnotherapy techniques in a relaxed and informal way. You can join in with the small group classes held on weekends or weekday evenings, or if you prefer you can have individual classes taught either in my home near Poole or in the privacy of your own home. The group classes are held in Broadstone, Dorset and I am happy to travel within a 20 mile radius for individual classes.

The Best Births course is made up of 4 sessions lasting around one and a half hours each. The classes are tailored to meet your individual needs and help you to achieve the calm and safe birth your body was designed for. You will then have lots of practise to do at home. The weekend course combines two sessions in one day and are run over two consecutive weekends.

What you can expect from the course:

  • How to achieve a state of deep relaxation whenever you want or need to, whilst being in control and completely aware of what is happening around you.

  • How your body works to birth your baby

  • Understand which hormones are needed for you to easily and safely birth and how your body must move to help this process

  • How to empower yourself and enhance your confidence in in your ability to birth well.

  • Support that will enable you to be calm and in control no matter how your baby arrives

  • How to address any fears or concerns you may have about birth

  • Breathing techniques you can use in labour to help you remain calm and in control
