Hypnobirthing & Birth Preparation Course
Hypnobirthing & Birth Preparation Course
OMG I’m having a baby! Forget your baby’s position, where is your head at right now when it comes to giving birth? Would you like to know what hypnobirthing could do for you?
Are you quietly burying your head in the sand? Googling fanatically to find out what really goes on? Worrying about how you’ll cope or if you’ll need intervention? You might already be concerned that you’re not well enough prepared for your baby. Or you might be relatively calm and wide open to proven methods that help you labour and birth more comfortably.
Keep reading and see if what I offer you is exactly what you need.
I teach The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme which is all about getting you and your baby the right birth on the day. You will create a positive mindset about birth, and deal with any curveballs that come your way with calm confidence. I will give you the tools to do exactly that, and to labour as comfortably as possible.
I can’t guarantee that everything will be exactly as you hoped right down to the weather, but nor can anyone else.
What I can guarantee, and it’s really important that you hear this, is that if the curve balls do show up you can use all the tools and techniques I teach you to remain calm and in control.
You will be present and focussed so you ask your medical caregivers all the right questions and fully understand the decisions you’re making. This means you’ll be able to look back on your baby’s birth, no matter what form it takes, and know that it was right for you and your baby.
Divine Hypnobirthing teaches the proven UK Wise Hippo Birthing Programme, which is a modern take on traditional antenatal classes.
Although structured the programme has been carefully created to make sure that you get what you need no matter what your concerns are, or what your learning style is.
The course itself is run as 4 x 2.5 hours.
