We really want you to feel better about birth! Of course, we want you to feel informed (and we have a stack of "information" we can share with you) but alongside that we think it's even more important that you are skilled to deal with labour, as well as to feel genuinely calm, confident and empowered for pregnancy, birth and beyond. Labour and birth are intensely emotional and physical experiences so whilst you might say, "Knowledge is power!", you can't "think" your way through labour. You can expect to become immersed in your birth experience, physically and emotionally, and we want to help you, your baby and your birth partner have the most positive, calm and confident experience possible, where you work together as your very own dream-team.
Are you ready to start feeling better about birth?
We run our two-day independent WOW! Hypnobirthing antenatal courses every month. Groups are small (max 5 couples) so there's time to ask questions and to have as much individual attention and personal space as possible. If you'd rather take the course privately, we can create a bespoke, personal course just for you.
The first day of our group WOW! Hypnobirthing course focuses mostly on the theory and practice of self-hypnosis and other relaxation and breathing techniques for pregnancy, birth and beyond. The second day of the course focuses more on the theory and practice of the physical aspects of birth as well as informed decision-making if you're presented with medical options. The whole course culminates in drawing together all that you have learned, linking mind and body, so that you devise a personal and ongoing "action plan" that maximises the opportunities for positive, calm and confident birth, wherever and however it happens on the day.
For best results we recommend you keep practising all the techniques you will learn on the run up to your baby's birth. To help you, you will receive exclusive downloads to listen to at home with the familiar voice of your course leader rather than a stranger, a good book about birth and hypnobirthing, course notes, information sheets and a list of things you can prepare and practise at home. We're available at the end of an email if you need any additional information or support. You can also choose to attend our weekly Relaxation Hour at the New Forest Birth Centre, Ashurst to keep you topped up.
We welcome clients from all over Southampton, Salisbury, Winchester, Romsey, the New Forest, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire - and beyond!
