The Courses

Whatever type of birth - homebirth, hospital birth, caesarean, I can support you.  First, second or fifth baby, you are welcome here! The optimal time to begin your journey is between 20 and 30 weeks, but I can support you prior and after this time, right up until you are ready to pop with the mini course! All classes take place in your own home, because this is where you are most relaxed. All my courses are listed below, there will be something to suit you - if not, get in touch and we can create something totally bespoke! Please complete the booking form below or contact me for more information. You may also benefit from attending a taster session, which can be found on the events page.

Reframe your birth and baby bundle - the complete hypnobirthing & postnatal course

Wahooo! You’re having a baby. Or maybe you aren’t so excited, possibly a bit nervous. That is totally normal. You’ve got this. If you want some support along the way, you are in the right place. I am passionate about ensuring that you are confident, calm and in control of your experience and transition to parenthood. It is overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be negative. Birth is one of the most incredible things you are designed to do and it should be one of the best days of your life. You’d prepare for a wedding, holiday or driving test so why not the same for birth?

This is my most comprehensive course which will teach you all about relaxation, how your mind and birth work, writing your birth preferences, what actually happens in labour, supporting you to feed your baby, care for your baby and be totally chill in the process. The course is made exactly for you, your past experiences and your current situation. You can be assured that it will prepare you for anything.  Hint - it is jam packed full of stuff, so you don't need to splash out on other antenatal classes if you don't want to. You will learn everything you need to know, right here. Plus I only use the best quality evidence, so no bias, fake promises or scaremongering here.

10 hours of teaching (5 x 2hr sessions) in your home, access to the client area, relaxation MP3's, course manual, a catch up at 36 weeks and my continued support via phone/email/skype until after the birth

Reframe Your Birth  - The complete hypnobirthing course

Your friend told you birth hurts like hell. You saw One Born Every Minute and that showed you the same… Or maybe, you had a seriously traumatic birth previously. You are conditioned to think that birth is a dangerous process and its scaring you. You’ve heard of hypnobirthing but think it’s a kinda weird thing? Hypnosis? Out of CONTROL? The thing you were trying to avoid? Let me tell you something, you won’t be out of control. You’ll be relaxed as a sleeping baby yet totally aware of everything around you. You may even have a comfortable labour. WHAT? I just went there. This course is your antenatal preparation, hypnobirthing guide and how to birth like a goddess. All in 8 hours. Wow.

 

You’ll learn all about how the mind and body work together in labour, how you actually give birth, how to stay calm AF and tell your midwife exactly what you want to happen. We’ll cover your choices in birth, what happens when your preferences go down the drain and how to adapt to changing situations. You'll be full of tools and practical tips to assist you in birthing like a boss. Even squeezing in stuff that only effects you, for example, if you have had a caesarean before, or will be having an induction. Because yes, you can have an induction and do hypnobirthing. Who knew?

Reframe Your Birth mini - the hypnobirthing workshop

Damn. You’re 37 weeks. Your ideal birth has just gone out the window for one reason or another. You’re panicking. You don’t know your options. Or maybe you can’t afford a full course. Maybe you are just too busy working, or caring for your other child, like the incredible woman you are. Perhaps you did an awesome antenatal class somewhere else and just want to learn about hypnobirthing. Or you did an antenatal class elsewhere and it just freaked you out. You need support, reassurance and practical tips, pronto. You’re in luck. There is always time with my shortened course. I can fit you in anytime, probably later this week or next!

 

This is pure relaxation and birth preferences. Its gonna be intense but that’s ok, because it will be so chilled you won’t know what hit you. By the end, you’ll be excited for birth. You’ll realise how the mind and body work together and how this plays a huge part in birth. You’ll know how to breathe effectively, make informed decisions and navigate birth no matter what happens.

Complete zen. Sometimes, with the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, we just forget to relax. 

Don't worry ladies, I am with you!

All it takes, is 1hr a week, for 6 weeks. Lets chill.

I'll come to you, get the blankets ready and we will have a chat about a pregnancy related topic, do a breathing technique which will be incredible for labour and birth and a guided relaxation. There will also be time to chat about your fears and wants for birth.  This is your time to switch off and unwind.

You'll also get a gorgeous relaxation MP3 available to download instantly.

Investment: 1-1 £75 for 6 x 1 hour sessions / Group £55 per person for 6 x 1 hour 15 minute sessions

baby ready - the postnatal course, including mindful breastfeeding

You’re covered for the birth. Maybe you’ve done other antenatal classes or hypnobirthing before. But you still aren’t ready for when your baby arrives. It can be an anxious time for you, not knowing if you are doing it ‘right’ or maybe your friend told you that they didn’t do it like you are planning. No one can tell you how to parent, that is your decision, because you are capable of making informed choices. However, there is so much information out there and you just want to do the best for your baby.

 

Including the Mindful Breastfeeding Programme, I’ll teach you how feeding works, whether that is breast or bottle. It’s always a confidence boost when you know what to expect with feeding. I'll chill you out too, because feeding works best when you are relaxed. We’ll even go right back to basics with how to hold, change and dress babies (if you need it – this might even be your first experience with a baby so don’t feel like you know nothing!). Shall we co-sleep? What even is that? What do babies need? How do they develop? What happens to a woman’s body after birth? All questions that need to be answered! I’m here, guys!

3 hours of teaching in your home, course manual, relaxation MP3's. visit after birth for feeding support and my continued support via phone/email/skype throughout

breastfeeding support

Breastfeeding can be a tough skill to master! And that is ok. It takes time, you and your baby need to foster a strong, loving relationship. You may encounter barriers, but you know where to seek support. I'll come over to your place, get you in a relaxed state and observe you feeding your baby. We can then work on their attachment at the breast, discuss the sorts of things you are experiencing and ensure that you are feeling confident with feeding. 

It may turn into a bit of a birth debrief, time to chat and I'll make suggestions for you to use in your breastfeeding journey. 

We can chat about common problems, expressing, formula, safe sleep, weight, poo and whatever issues you are experiencing. 

I have experience in breastfeeding from working in midwifery and am a qualified mindful breastfeeding practitioner & peer supporter.

Investment: £30 per hour
