FAQs

what is hypnobirthing?

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?

Hypnobirthing is so much more than simply listening to some guided relaxations on your iPhone, it is a full ante-natal preparation helping you to release any fear and negative ideas you hold around birth (because let's be honest, most of us have heard nothing but horror stories from an early age) so that you can be calm, confident, empowered and trusting in your body's incredible innate ability to birth your baby.
The 'hypno' part is all about shifting that anxious mindset, introducing new ways of thinking and teaching you effective relaxation techniques so that you can step back and allow your body to it's amazing work.
I truly believe that any birthing person can benefit from the knowledge and evidence-based information contained within this course, regardless of the birth you would ideally like to aim for. There is an unhelpful common misconception that hypnobirthing is just for drug-free hippy waterbirths and that is absolutely not the case. 

Can my birth partner attend?

CAN MY BIRTH PARTNER ATTEND?

Yes of course! The price of the course covers you and one other. That can be your partner/friend/sister/doula/birth partner - whoever you'd like to have supporting you.
The role of the birth partner in labour is massive, so it is really beneficial for them to come to birth armed with all the same knowledge as you to ensure they can support you and advocate for you to the best of their abilities.

What does it cost and what is included?

WHAT DOES IT COST AND WHAT IS INCLUDED?

The course costs £250 which covers you and your plus one attending the 4 online sessions, plus you'll also receive:
~ a hypnobirthing handbook full of resources & recommendations
~ lots of relaxation recordings & guided hypnosis
~ a positive affirmation audio
~ access to The Birth Uprising digital pack (worth £55)
~ ongoing support via the group WhatsApp
~ 10% off reflexology treatments with me during pregnancy and for the 3 months after birth

You will become part of a supportive and friendly group of people going through pregnancy and birth alongside you, which in my own experience of becoming a parent has been invaluable. It is so so important to have people to chat to who are in it with you; whether that's to talk through your nervous excitement in the weeks leading up to birth or to discuss your many 'is this normal?' questions in the hazy postpartum days.
