"Childbirth is the most vulnerable time in any woman’s life. Which is why I feel so passionately about empowering each and every woman with the knowledge and skills that will enable her to have a Calm, Comfortable and Confident birth."

 

Course Details

Course DetailsThe HypnoBirthing™ course consists of FOUR 3 hour classes held over consecutive weeks.

Courses are run in small groups at The Holistic Clinic in Ludlow (SY8 1BL) and in The Natural Therapy Centre at The Fold in Worcester (WR6 5JB) or on a one-to-one basis in the couple's home.

You can attend a HypnoBirthing™ course anytime from week 13 of pregnancy, but the ideal time to start on your HypnoBirthing™ journey is considered to be between 20 & 25 weeks, in order for baby & bump to be big enough for you to really start to bond with and to ensure you have sufficient time to practise and perfect the techniques . Because my daughter unexpectedly arrived at week 36 I always think it beneficial to be practised and ready by then if possible!

However, if you don't discover HypnoBirthing™ till later in your pregnancy don’t worry, it is NEVER too late! I have taught couples at 38 weeks who have had lovely births and I, myself, only had two weeks to practise the techniques before my daughter was born and they worked perfectly for me.

If you are 35 weeks or over, or your personal circumstances mean we would be unable to run the course over four weeks, we can look at running it over a shorter timeframe privately, to ensure that you have plenty of time once the course is complete for practise.

Your birthing companion plays a vital role in a HypnoBirthing™, so ideally they would also attend the classes with you. If this is not possible it is fine for mum to attend the classes on her own, or with a friend, and, where we can, we'll arrange a separate, free of charge, private session with your birthing companion to cover everything pertinent to them.

Included in the course price is :

-12 hours of practical tuition with an experienced HypnoBirthing™ teacher - having taught well over 100 couples.
 
- your official HypnoBirthing™ Course handbook - Marie Mongan's internationally renowned "HypnoBirthing™ : The breakthrough approach to safer, easier, comfortable birthing”,
 
- your exclusive HypnoBirthing™ Relaxation/Guided Visualisation CD/download, to help condition your body to reach the deep relaxation that we're wanting for your birth - The more time your body spends in deep relaxation before your birthing, the quicker and easier it will find it to get back there on the day...abit like muscle memory,

 - one to one telephone & email support throughout your pregnancy and beyond - don't worry about asking those silly little questions, I'll be here to give you information and answers on any and all questions,
 
- additional face to face sessions, in person or over Skype, if baby has not arrived by week 41, and induction is being discussed, or if baby is malpositioned and needs to turn,

- an invitation to join The Blissful Bubble, a secret facebook group open only to Blissful Births couples, which has become a supportive community of like-minded parents and parents-to-be..a great social network.

- comprehensive course handouts on all techniques learnt and important information,

- your own course folder to keep all handouts and information in.

Up-Coming 2019 Group HypnoMothering™ Class Dates:

HypnoMothering™ is a fun & practical 2.5hr class for pregnant mums and mums of under 1's, which helps smooth the transition into Motherhood by offering a toolkit of simple hypnotherapy techniques, aswell as other tangible solutions, to help overcome the common Motherhood hurdles. It is not necessary to have taken the HypnoBirthing Course, the class is open to everyone.

Taking the class whilst pregnant is the ideal so that plans and strategies can be put in place before baby's arrival, enabling daily life to run more smoothly from the start. But if baby has already arrived that's fine, you can start using the techniques straightaway. We're unable to have babies in the class with us as much of the work centres on calm & relaxation and their presence may effect this(!)

Group HypnoMothering™ Classes are held TWICE monthly at Ludlow's beautiful Holistic Clinic - on the SECOND Tuesday morning (10am - 12.30pm) and FOURTH Thursday evening (7pm - 9.30pm) and on an ad hoc basis in The Natural Therapy Centre at The Fold in Worcester, so please get in touch to find out when.
