Hypnobirthing

Relax & Breathe Birthing: 4-Week Course

This is an informal, inspiring and empowering approach that enables pregnant women and their birth partners to feel excited about the birth of their baby.

This course can help you achieve a fear-free, calm, comfortable and positive birth experience.

You are guided through using gentle breathing, massage, imagery and visualisations (hypnobirthing) as a way of staying relaxed and calm during your birth experience.

The tailored approach enables you and your birth partner to adapt relaxation scripts to your own needs by tapping into positive memories, places, imagery and feelings from your own experiences – making them even more powerful.

Using self-hypnosis (deep relaxation) during childbirth is a simple, yet profoundly effective tool for achieving a calm childbirth experience where you feel in control of your experience and where you are working with your body’s own natural pain relieving hormones to ensure a comfortable birth experience.
