HypnoBirthing courses provide a holistic antenatal birth education programme that incorporate self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques in order to promote a more calm & empowered pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience.  It's a fantastic tool that can be used to process any anxieties and fears around pregnancy and childbirth.  Its also a great option if your looking to enhance general health and wellbeing during this time. 


Lavender Birthing HypnoBirthing courses teach the Wise Hippo Birthing Programme, which offers a modern approach to HypnoBirthing classes.  The programme focuses on helping couples to achieve "the right birth on the day", taking in to account potential curve balls along the way.  


The classes are taught over 4  separate online sessions, each lasting for 2 hours.  They are suitable to attend, no matter what type of birth is anticipated.   Couples can attend classes anytime after their 20 week scan.  The course includes a copy of The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme handbook, and a code to access online MP3 resources, videos and relaxation music. 


Classes are designed to be informative, interactive, calm and relaxed, whilst also providing an opportunity to create a supportive community network with fellow HypnoBirthers in a safe space.
