Hypnobirthing (Enhanced maternity services)

Preparing for a calm labour and birth

Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education programme that develops understanding and teaches techniques that can help towards a calmer labour and birth. We focus on a combination of education, self-hypnosis and deep relaxation, which between them help to reduce the effects of anxiety and tension, leading to a calmer, easier birthing experience.

The courses are run by midwives who have trained as hypnobirthing practitioners, giving you the benefit of professionals who have expertise in pregnancy, labour, birth and hypnobirthing.

During the course you will learn:

  • Practical techniques for self-hypnosis, breathing and relaxation
  • How to overcome anxiety
  • Massage techniques
  • How your body works to give birth to your baby
  • The role and importance of birthing partners 

The ideal time to start hypnobirthing classes is around 32 weeks, as you will need time to practice the techniques taught so you can achieve the maximum benefit during labour.

Cost: £200 per couple. The course takes place over four classes, with each class having a maximum of six couples.
