What’s in the course?

Our complete birth preparation programme not only offers you the chance to learn the neuroscience behind hypnosis and practise the techniques, but also teaches you everything you’ll ever need to know in order to prepare for a postive birth experience where you are in control. You won’t need to book any additional antenatal classes – we really do have it all covered!

I teach group courses at The Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living and at The Orchard Centre in Biggleswade. read more about my locations here.

Group hypnobirthing classes offer you the opportunity to form relationships with other families who will have babies of a similar age to you – this can be a vital source of support that is often life changing!

These hypnobirthing courses are taught by me, Jess, I’m an experienced birth doula and after the course I provide you with ongoing support by phone or e-mail until after you baby is born. If you have a birth partner there is lots of tools for them to use too and the course will give them confidence to support you in your birth.

A course manual, electronic resources and our unique hypnosis MP3’s will be provided so that you can review what you have learned, practise the techniques at home and use the tools for relaxation before and during your birth.
