The ultimate in birth education with the bonus of Hypnobirthing to ensure you have all the tools you need to feel positive and informed about your birth choices. The class is delivered in a group setting, and you are encouraged to bring your partner/birth partner along with you too. We want to make sure Hypnobirthing is accessible for all, so we have included it in our standard Antenatal course. We believe it is such an amazing tool to use in pregnancy and birth as it can help you stay relaxed, calm, and focused and is useful for all births, not just drug-free vaginal births. Over the course we will cover: - Stages of Labour -Signs of Labour - Pain relief - Birthing movement and breathing techniques - All types of birth including caesarean sections, induction, assisted birth and recovery afterwards - Visualisation - Positive affirmations - How to create a calm birth space - Relaxation scripts and how to use them - Positive touch and partner massage - Breast and bottle feeding basics - Newborn care basics - What to expect after - the 4th trimester and lots more! Each class will be 2 hours long, and the whole course runs over 6 weeks. You will receive a goody bag, a comprehensive course workbook that is added to each week, and Hypnobirthing scripts in the form of audio files meaning you can practice, relax and have some important me-time at home. Please note week 5 is delivered online via Zoom, this is the week we cover breast and bottle feeding.
