I am very pleased to be able to offer a simple four hour course for couples which I call Skills for HypnoBirthing.
It is NOT the full Mongan HypnoBirthing course – that takes about ten hours to deliver to a couple in their own home and I still offer that wonderful course. But it is a great add-on course for any couples who:
- want to go a bit more deeply into the relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques they have heard about in another course – perhaps through their NCT antenatal course or prenatal yoga
- did HypnoBirthing for their first birth and want a refresher
- have done a HypnoBirthing course earlier in the pregnancy and feel a little uncertain about the techniques (this can happen if you are in a big class, or if you did a one-weekend intensive)
The course is composed of two two-hour sessions at the client’s home.
The aims of the course is to give a pregnant mum and her birth supporter practical skills for increasing her chances of a straightforward labour and birth and reducing her chances of needing pain relief drugs.
In the first session we review the rationale behind using relaxation, affirmations and self-hypnosis in childbirth; the relationship between the hormones of birth and the environment, breathing techniques, deepening, massage and visualisation and we learn techniques of progressive relaxation, breathing for labour, deepening and visualisation.
In the second session we PRACTICE the techniques, add on a range of great movement for labour and massage tips and review your personal set of strategies for labour. You also will learn a simple self-hypnosis technique that you can use for the rest of your life.
Both sessions include hypnotherapy.
A course booked during weekdays costs just £120. Weekends and evenings – £150.
This is a new format for me so all feedback from past clients who have taken the course is very gratefully accepted. If you have feedback or would like the course yourselves, please fill in this form.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
