Complete Hypnobirthing Antenatal Education and Birth Preparation Programme

Our Complete Hypnobirthing Antenatal Education and Birth Preparation Programme is offered either privately or in small groups. The course content includes:

  • 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.'

'We are very glad we opted to do a refresher course. It was tailored to us and provided a very useful reminder of all the techniques we learnt on our initial course. Thank you!'
