Are you interested in discovering skills and techniques for an easier, natural labour? Do you want to be in control of your birth? Are you looking for a comfortable and drug-free birth?

HypnoBirthing is the answer

Now in its twenty-third year, HypnoBirthing is a complete antenatal education. Our birthing classes are intended to help you have the most natural childbirth possible, using easily-learned self hypnosis, relaxation, massage and breathing techniques.


HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.

HypnoBirthing is a complete birth education programme that teaches simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better birth.


HypnoBirthing is much more than just self hypnosis or hypnotherapy for childbirth.

  • With HypnoBirthing, you'll discover that severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour

  • You'll learn how to release the fears and anxieties you may currently have about giving birth, and how to overcome previous traumatic births

  • HypnoBirthing lets you discover and experience the joy and magic of birth - rather than the horrific ordeal everyone else seems hell-bent on telling you about


Most importantly, you'll learn how to put yourself back in control of your birth - rather than blindly turning your birthing experience over to your doctor or midwife.


HypnoBirthing doesn't mean you'll be in a trance or a sleep. Rather, you'll be able to chat, and be and in good spirits - totally relaxed, but fully in control. You'll always be aware of what is happening to you, and around you.


HypnoBirthing doesn't require any particular belief system, or prior experience. Some of our mums (and especially their husbands!) have been very sceptical at first - until they experience it for themselves.


In fact, the more sceptical they are to start with, the more evangelical they are when they discover the power of HypnoBirthing.


Just imagine welcoming each surge! Feeling peaceful... relaxing... and even smiling as your baby comes closer to you!


In short, HypnoBirthing allows you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear and tension that prevents the birthing muscles of your body from functioning as Nature intended them to.
