About the classes

Why Hypnobirthing?

As a Doula I have witnessed first-hand how hypnobirthing, if embraced and practiced, can lead to a calmer and more positive birthing experience. 


I trained as a Mongan Method Instructor in 2012 and started teaching The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme in 2014. It’s a modern and fresh approach to hypnobirthing that focuses very much on supporting your birth choices wherever and however you plan on birthing your baby. 


Suitable at any point in your pregnancy (most parents come between 20-36 weeks into their pregnancy), there are different options available to suit every schedule and budget. 

You & Your Birth Partner

We all have unique desires and wants for our baby’s birth. What is right for one women is not necessarily right for another, and so my classes educate and support you and your birth partner to experience your baby’s birth in a way that is right for you. 


However and wherever you plan on, or end up, giving birth you and your birth partner will be armed with  different tools & techniques to help cope with whatever gets thrown at you on the day. 

 

Birth partners often feel helpless or powerless in the birthing room. By learning some practical and easy ways to support you they can, if you both want it, be an important part of the birth too. 



What's Covered in the Classes?

• Learn how labour progresses from one stage to the next, and in the case of Caesarean birth what to expect and how to prepare.

• Find out why there is so much fear surrounding birth, how it can impact our birthing experience, and what we can do about it.

• Gain an understanding of how hypnobirthing works, how using the breath and learning how to remain calm and focussed can help you to have a more positive birting experience.

• Techniques to help you better able to cope during your baby’s birth. 

• Birth planning: Become informed to make choices that are right for you and your baby. Understand your rights and where to find resources.
