BEFORE THE COURSE BEGINS
You will be posted your goody bags in advance so you'll have your course notes booklet, a copy of our bestselling book and a little pack of positivity all before the course begins, plus many more treats from us.

You will also have the option to join a private FB  / WhatsApp group so that you have the opportunity to connect with others in your group and socialise and support one another virtually. Hopefully once it's safe to do so, you will be able to meet up with your classmates, should you wish to.

AFTER THE COURSE
After the course takes place, in addition to the follow-up resources you will be sent and the ongoing 1:1 support we offer, we will also sign you up to our Postpartum Pack free of charge. This online course covers everything you need to know for the early days, weeks and months of life with a newborn. The pack includes a series of seven workshops, each delivered by leading expert in their field and access to a private FB group for ongoing support and reassurance.

roup classes are great as you have the chance to meet other like-minded parents-to-be in a  positive learning environment. The course takes place over a single weekend (10am - 4pm on both days) or Thursday evenings over 4 consecutive weeks (7:00pm - 9:30pm). It is  a shared experience as:

  • the course is  tailored to meet the needs of those attending

  • there are opportunities to ask any questions and bounce discussion points about in class or in the group WhatsApp.

  • you have access to ongoing support on phone or email all the way until your baby is born

  • many groups stay connected after the course

 

What we cover


A lotThe best chance of a straightforward birth
Many traditional antenatal classes teach you about the process of birth but not how to actually manage it on the day. My course provides you with both. You will make a practical plan for early labour and strong labour too.

  • physiology of pregnancy, labour and birth, and how the birthing body works;

  • how the mind effects the body and what this means for labour and birth;

  • how a birthing mother can use her natural abilities to birth comfortably;

  • understanding and using self-hypnosis to improve labour and birth;

  • preparing both mind and body for an easy, positive birth;

  • specific and highly-effective breathing and relaxation techniques;

  • the important role of the birth partner;

  • opportunities to experience and practice deep relaxation and self-hypnosis;

  • fear release and building confidence about labour, birth and becoming a new parent;

  • effective positions for labour and birthing;

  • massage techniques to help deepen relaxation;

  • how to avoid artificial induction and why this is important;

  • creating your birth preferences and the ideal birthing environment for you and your baby;

  • breastfeeding information and tips for new parents;

Write your postnatal plan together in session 5
My course includes complete preparation for birth AND life with your newborn so you don’t need to take a second course. 

As much for your birth partner as it is for you!
My content is designed to teach birth partners their role so you don't have to worry on the day. They will learn how to keep you (and themselves) relaxed, and feel confident to support you.

 

Includes active birth positions and online video course
My midwifery experience has taught me that baby's position can have a significant impact, making birth longer, uncomfortable and leading to complications. I designed my unique online course 'Align Your Baby' to give you the best chance of a quicker, easier birth experience. 

Including the 'what ifs'
Unlike other hypnobirthing courses, I don't ignore the 'what ifs'. You spend time working through difficult scenarios so that you are super prepared for whatever happens on the day. We cover birth by ventouse, forceps and caesarean, how to cope with long labours, epidurals and induction of labour.

 

Enjoy a lazy weekend together
Past clients said evening classes were too tiring so classes are taught over the weekend.

I arrange an informal 'Meet Up' for all our groups after the course finishes, currently these are offered virtually. 

 

New wave hypnobirthing
I’ve dropped the outdated methods from traditional hypnobirthing which proved impractical for most Mums and Dads, my techniques are tried and tested!

 

My course includes… 

  • Comprehensive online/ printable workbook 

  • Relaxation and positive afMP3's 

  • Digital resources (including template birth plans a)

  • My ongoing phone and email support until your baby arrives


Have questions or need advice after the course finishes? Want help with your birth plan, special circumstances, had a meeting with your midwife that you’d like to discuss or just having a ‘wobble’. I'll be happy to offer you support until your baby arrives, clients find this invaluable and this ongoing personal connection elevates my course from an average antenatal class. 

Make friends for life
Each group class stays in touch long term with a whatsapp group AND all clients are invited to my Weekly Mums Club. Building your tribe couldn’t be easier!

Complete Hypnobirthing Antenatal Education and Birth Preparation Programme

  • physiology of pregnancy, labour and birth, and how the birthing body works;

  • how the mind effects the body and what this means for labour and birth;

  • how a birthing mother can use her natural abilities to birth comfortably;

  • understanding and using self-hypnosis to improve labour and birth;

  • preparing both mind and body for an easy, positive birth;

  • specific and highly-effective breathing and relaxation techniques;

  • the important role of the birth partner;

  • opportunities to experience and practice deep relaxation and self-hypnosis;

  • fear release and building confidence about labour, birth and becoming a new parent;

  • effective positions for labour and birthing;

  • massage techniques to help deepen relaxation;

  • how to avoid artificial induction and why this is important;

  • creating your birth preferences and the ideal birthing environment for you and your baby;

  • breastfeeding information and tips for new parents;

  • and more*

    *Because we have lots of additional experience and training as a team, we include extras such as Rebozo, Mindfulness, Breastfeeding tips, Nutrition and Fitness information and more. This is additional to the standard hypnobirthing syllabus. We are able to do this due to the additional training and further qualifications of our team members.

When you book your course, you get:

  • The full ZenBirth antental hypnobirthing programme for both you and your birth companion;

  • Approximately 10-12 hours of teaching time with your fully qualified instructor;

  • The Hypnobirthing Book by Katharine Graves;  

  • relaxation and hypnobirthing audio recordings;

  • course manual packed with information, self-hypnosis scripts and more;

  • assistance with any questions or concerns about pregnancy, labour, birth and breastfeeding; and

  • caring support from your hypnobirthing teacher from the time of your booking until your baby arrives, and after.

Expectant parents are encouraged to enrol on their course anytime from the 20-week scan. Most of our ZenBirth couples tend to start between 26-33 weeks. The earlier you learn the range of tools and techniques, the more time you have to practice. However, it is never too late in pregnancy to learn and effectively use hypnobirthing techniques for a better birth experience.

It is ideal to attend the course with your partner/birth companion, however expectant mothers who attend all or part of the course on their own can equally benefit from hypnobirthing.

'We did a our course privately... I was a little nervous that the experience may be intense, and how well I would take to it. It was fantastic and was just what we needed! After every activity I felt able to say what worked and we felt encouraged to go with what was working well for us. There were no 'shoulds'! Thank you for creating such an easy and relaxed atmosphere which really helped us learn and experience as much as possible in a short amount of time.'
