Hypnobirthing is a logical, practical and evidence based antenatal course. That prepares, educate you to have the very best birth possible. You haven't got to be dreaming of a drug-free, natural water birth at home to benefit from a Hypnobirthing course. It's suitable for every birth and every birther. I'm part of The Birth Uprising gang and teach their incred Hypnobirthing course which fits with my laid-back, practical, no bullshit style of teaching. This course is by no means, fluffy or flowery - it is for all families of all shapes and sizes.
I love nothing more than ensuring everyone has access to the birth they deserve, regardless of how many "high risk" labels get slapped on them. My areas of special interest are small/SGA babies and gestational hypertension due to my own personal experiences but have also had a lot of success supporting parents with birth trauma, fear of pain, pregnancy anxiety, gestational diabetes, VBAC, "big" babies, twins & multiples, fertility treatment and loads more!
Throughout the course you will learn the importance of and how to make your own choices during your pregnancy and birth, all about how our body and brain deals with birth, the importance of feeling confident about our bodies ability to grow and birth our baby and how we can make the most of our bodies natural coping mechanisms.
I have strong links with Salisbury Maternity unit and the new Beatrice Birth Centre, but have also supported many parents choosing to birth at Swindon Great Western Hospital Maternity Unit & White Horse Birth Centre, Bath Royal United Hospitals Maternity Unit & Bath Birthing Centre, The Royal County Hospital Maternity Unit in Winchester and with the Blossom & Bloom Homebirth and Birth Centre teams as well as in the comfort of their own home.
I am also happy to support parents from further afield with online courses.
The course is available as a full 12 hour course of a 3 hour refresher course and can be completed privately, as a group, online or in-person
