Hypnobirthing is not just for those who want to achieve a "natural" birth. It is a set of tools and techniques that will enable you to steer the course of your birth, ensuring you play an active role in your birth and putting you in calm control over the decisions along the way.

This comprehensive course will provide you with everything that you need to achieve a positive birth. We cover all aspects of breathing techniques for the different stages of labour, relaxation and visualisation techniques, massage and positioning for birth as well as education around the hormones involved in labour, birth physiology and pain relief.
