Midwife Led Hypnobirthing Classes

Following the stages of labour can you add how to navigate the systems and how to be prepared for the ‘what ifs’

Our classes are designed to give you a comprehensive range of information, giving you all the antenatal information you would expect as well as hypnobirthing – so you get the two together. Meaning you will not have to attend other antenatal classes, we’ve got it all covered. 

The subjects are covered in a logical sequence and involve the inspirational Katharine Graves method of hypnobirthing alongside the more traditional physiology of childbirth, methods of pain relief available, mechanisms of labour, the role of your partner, stages of labour and the ‘what if’s!’

All parents signing up for our Hypnobirthing course will receive an introduction pack with a  Katherine graves HB book and MP3 relaxation downloads and continued support with midwife Sally throughout the course, and beyond, via a WhatsApp group and advice phone line.
