Five weekly sessions held on Saturday afternoons (Total of 12.5 hours of tuition)
HypnoBirthing offers new parents powerful evidence-based practices to help ease stress and discomfort during childbirth. The course is delivered over 5 weeks so you can optimise your learning and fully integrate the techniques before your baby arrives.
The program is backed by over 30 years of research and has recently enjoyed a boost in popularity thanks to the vote of confidence from members of the British Royal Family. Kate Middleton employed HypnoBirthing techniques for all three of her labours and Meaghan Markle also used the program for the birth of her son.
Experts claim the benefits include a shorter first stage labour, less intense pain, a shorter hospital stay and less fear and anxiety after the birth of the baby.
Hypnobirthing helps alleviate stress and discomfort during labour using three main techniques; breathing techniques tailored for each stage of labour, positive affirmations and gentle self-hypnosis.
Fans of hypnobirthing, like Kate and Meaghan, say that staying calm stops your body going into a panicky "fight-or-flight mode", enabling you to focus your energy on a smoother more enjoyable birth experience.
Staying calm also helps your body release the body's 'feel good' hormones like oxytocin and endorphins which help ease the discomfort of labour and boost relaxation.
