Personalized Hypnobirthing lessons provide invaluable advantages on your path to a calm and positive birthing experience.

You have the freedom to schedule sessions at your convenience, accommodating your unique circumstances and availability. This flexibility is especially beneficial if you have a busy schedule, prior commitments, or specific time constraints.

This dedicated support allows for deeper engagement and understanding of the techniques and I will be able to closely monitor your progress. This personalized guidance can boost your confidence, reduce anxiety, and inspire a sense of empowerment as you approach your birthing journey.

  • Confidentiality and Privacy:

You can openly discuss any concerns, fears, or sensitive topics without worrying about sharing them in a group setting. This safe and secure environment fosters trust and allows for open communication between you, your partner and your instructor, ultimately leading to a more meaningful learning experience.

When is the best time to start learning HypnoBirthing ?

There’s not a straight rule about the ‘best time’ for learning hypnobirthing, as it all depends on your own personal circumstances and preferences.

However, somewhere between 20-34 weeks is ideal, as the success of the course is strongly linked to how much practice you do.
Your birth companion should also attend all classes as he/she is a very important part of Hypnobirthing achievement as it helps build a strong relationship with the child and yourself before, during and after birth.

" Labour does not have to be hard or unpleasant.
It can beautiful, calm and enjoyable
If we change the way we view birth,
The way you give birth will change’’
