Calm & Confident Birth Workshop - Hypnobirthing

This highly recommended birth preparation hypnobirthing workshop teaches practical techniques to increase your chances for a more natural birth. All designed to help calm the mind and show you how to work with your body. These techniques are proven to help release fear and enable you to give birth in the way you are designed to…calmly, naturally.
This practical 2.5-hr workshop will simplify things as we get straight to what is required to help prepare you for the birth of your baby and give your birthing partner a chance to get involved and be there for you.

Birthing partners have an essential role in supporting women in labour. This workshop will give your partner more confidence ready to go forward to the birth of your baby, in a calm and relaxed way.

How does this differ from NCT or other Antenatal Classes?

This workshop is NOT your usual childbirth class! We will not talk about using drugs for pain relief.

This Calm Birth workshop shows you what you can do to increase your chances for a more natural birth. Learn practical ways to help baby into the best position to fit the pelvis. Also, learn solutions when labour seems long or has a stall!! Learn how to trigger your body's natural endorphins (morphine) for comfort.

A fantastic addition to ANY childbirth method you have previously learned and empowers your partner to support you during labour.

My husband is aware of a whole lot of things he did not know before. As a result, we already feel closer together and more empowered

You will learn;

  • How to breathe during surges
  • How to breathe for birth
  • Effective use of affirmations & visualisations
  • Relaxation triggers
  • Birthing positions and movements during labour
  • How to help baby get into the best position
  • Massage and relaxation techniques to create endorphins - your body's own natural painkillers
  • And lots of practical tips!

When to take this workshop

The bottom line is, any time before you go into labour is a good time to take this workshop, but enrolling after month 6 or 7 of your pregnancy is recommended. Even if it’s not your first pregnancy, you may want to consider attending as every labour and delivery is different, so even seasoned pros can benefit from a refresh. Keep in mind that the sooner you register, the more likely you are to ensure you have secured a place.

The workshop is suitable for all birth choices and is available to anyone who desires to create a more calm and confident birthing experience.

I had the most incredible birth and entirely drug-free thanks to the techniques and the practice and confidence we gained in the Calm Birth workshop were invaluable.  My fabulous supportive husband who let me lean on him squeeze his hand and he massaged my back. Even the midwives commented on how good my breathing was and it really did help me avoid the drugs. Thank you!“

Just a quick note to let you know that our little baby girl arrived naturally yesterday after a relatively smooth and quick drug-free water birth. All of the techniques you taught us helped so much, in particular the relaxation and affirmations so thank you so much!!”

Feeling Nervous About Childbirth?

I offer access bars london waterloo

Access bars® can assist you in releasing the build-up of fear and anxiety that can often occur during pregnancy. Each bars session clears the emotional overwhelm allowing a sense of peace and calm in your mind and body. Highly recommended during pregnancy as this will dissipate the build-up of thoughts, feelings and emotions about childbirth.

In addition, other benefits include feeling happier, a dramatic reduction in stress, a greater sense of peace and improved confidence. Especially relevant is the contribution to your baby being less programmed and more conscious.
