Calm & Confident Birth Workshop - Hypnobirthing
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.
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.

Feeling Anxious About Childbirth?
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.
