We provide a premium service with qualified passionate midwives
Congratulations on looking to invest in your new family’s future. Many couples spend hours on choosing the ‘right’ pram or nursery furniture but don’t prepare for their baby’s birth with the same emphasis. This course might just be the most important money you spend. Birthing your baby is so much more than just having a ‘healthy baby’ at the end.

HypnoBirthing Group Classes
Our Group Class are our most popular option and a great way to learn. Our Group Classes run over five weeks where new concepts are introduced building on the previous week’s knowledge. Our Group Classes are kept small to ensure you get the best support and opportunity to ask the questions you need to.
Your partner and any other support people who will be at your birth should attend. This may include a close family member, friend, doula or student midwife.

Midwife Support Package
The support package will be tailored to suit individual needs.
It includes one antenatal appointment where we will get to know each other a little more. We will clarify your birthing preferences and discuss possible strategies if circumstances should change ie induction of labour/breech/caesarean.
From here we will formulate a birth plan that we can share with your midwife on the day.
We will be on call from 37 weeks until your birth and available to discuss any concerns or queries during this time.
The package includes full continuous birth support when in established labour and the immediate postnatal period until you are comfortable. Two postnatal support visits including birth debrief & ongoing breastfeeding support.

Partners Learn How to Help
“I was feeling worried about the birth right from the time I found out my partner was pregnant. I’d had lots of mates telling some pretty horrific stories, I didn’t want this for my partner and I knew she wanted a different kind of birth. I was sceptical about the HypnoBirthing classes, but I was “in” from the first class. The knowledge, tools, practical skills and confidence the classes gave me genuinely helped me to support my partner and settle my own anxieties. The birth was such a team effort as a result and my partner was amazing!” ~ Dave
Positive Birth is Possible
Birth is really meant to be a positive, enjoyable experience. Nature wants you to do it again and again! HypnoBirthing returns the art of birthing to a woman. It allows her to summon her natural Birthing Instincts and have the best birth possible – bringing her baby safely into a positive environment filled with confidence and love.
