    A complete course for mind-body birth preparation.

    LEARN TO WORK WITH YOUR BODY FOR A CALMER BIRTH

     

    This approach combines deep relaxation techniques with antenatal basics, including massage and movement for labour, offering you a broad range of accessible tools to access during different stages of labour.

     

    • REDUCE YOUR WORRIES AROUND BIRTH

    • GAIN CONFIDENCE IN YOUR OPTIONS AND CHOICES

    • WORK WITH YOUR PARTER AND BEGIN PREPARING TOGETHER.

  • "Thank you so much for the birth workshop, it came in so handy during labour! The counter pressure on hips and a few other moves were just a life saver at the time. It really gave my husband confidence to support me in the moment."

  • Why hypnobirthing?

    Hypnobirthing is a childbirth preparation method that uses self-hypnosis, deep relaxation, and breathing techniques to manage pain and fear during labour and delivery.

     

    The idea is that by managing levels of stress hormones, you can give yourself the best chance of allowing the body's in-built system to set you up for a good birth. Techniques are simple and adaptable to different people and different birth situations, you don't need to have any particular skills, knowledge or experience already.

     

    I'm Emilie, a doula, antenatal and yoga teacher with over 15 years experience of working with birthing families.

    Through this course, we'll explore how the mind and body work together in ways that help you understand what's happening when and why. You'll get practical experience of a range of tools that can be used at different satges of labour, plus access to a bank of resources that you can use to explore and deepen your learning at home.
