THE COURSE

The course is run over two four-hour sessions during the week, just off Lordship Lane in the heart of East Dulwich. In order for you to get the most out of your hypnobirthing course, I have a maximum of six couples per class. I also offer private, one-to-one sessions with you and your birth companion, either in my home or yours.

  • An in-depth guide of how to reach a deep state of relaxation.
  • A very gentle and highly effective massage technique which will stimulate the production of the body’s natural pain relieving hormones.
  • The principal that a woman’s body and muscles are designed to give birth, without the need for pain or discomfort.
  • Three specific breathing techniques, along with visualisation and deepening techniques, as well as optimal positions for labour and birth.
  • Recognising and releasing fears you have surrounding birth. Fear results in stress and muscle tension, causing pain.
  • Nutrition and exercise for a healthy pregnancy.
  • Birth preferences, communicating with your caregiver and an extensive guide to the birth companion’s role during labour and birth.

You will also receive The Hypnobirthing Book, 3 MP3s, a course handout pack, access to a
full team of excellent complimentary therapists, and ongoing support until you’re holding
your baby.

DATES, AVAILABILITY & BOOKING

I recommend that couples attend the course anytime from their 20th week of pregnancy. The earlier you start, the longer you have to practice the all-important techniques of hypnobirthing. If you are more than 36 weeks pregnant and don’t have time to attend the full course, I offer one-to-one intensive courses with you and your birth companion. Please contact me for more information and prices.

When people ask me about my labour I say it was everything I wanted it to be. Not only was it a wonderful empowered experience, it also got rid of a whole host of demons from the first time around. None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for Hollie. She is amazing. Hypnobirthing is amazing. I will be recommending it to every pregnant woman I know, and probably even a few strangers in the street. There really is no greater feeling than lying in your bed at home, eating pizza, with your 4 hour old baby snoozing beside you. - Clemmie & Ben, parents to Bertie & Woody
