I recommend that couples attend the course anytime from their 20th week of the pregnancy. The earlier you start, the longer you have to practice the all-important techniques of hypnobirthing. If you are doing the full course, it’s great if you can attend with your birth partner, as they are a valuable part of the birth experience. Group courses take place at the East Dulwich studio, private courses take place in the comfort of your home or mine.

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, or alternatively you may want to consider an Essentials Workshop, which also serve well as a hypnobirthing refresher. You may also want to check out our home-study programme, the yesmum birth project, where you can learn at a time, place and pace that suits you.


The cost of the full course includes our book (Your Baby, Your Birth), 3 MP3s, a course handout pack and a birth plan template. It also includes ongoing telephone/email support when you’ve finished the course, right up until you meet your baby.

Follow-up sessions are available if you’ve done a course with me and would like to refocus your relaxation in the run-up to your birth. We can use these sessions for whatever you feel you need to work on. Please contact us for more information.
