My classes are taught as 5 sessions of 2.5h (12.5 hours total). They are friendly, informal sessions to develop your understanding of your body and how you can take control of your birthing experience.
In addition to the classes, you also get:
the latest UK edition of the book of Marie Mongan: HypnoBirthing®: The Breakthrough Approach to Safer, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing
2 CDs for home practice, including the famous “Rainbow Relaxation” by Marie Mongan.
a folder of notes and handouts for reference
e-mail and phone support throughout your pregnancy if you have any questions.
I currently offer group classes in Haverhill, Suffolk (CB9 8DS).
Free Introductory Session available.
The total cost of the classes within a group of maximum 5 couples is £250.
The cost of private classes at your home is from £350.
However if this isn't affordable for you, please get in touch so that we can find the best option for you.
Private classes are available in English or French.
I can also teach via Skype but ONLY under special circumstances (as for people living in France with very few practitioners).
The class program includes:
some physiology, e.g. how stress hormones affect labour;
some history: why childbirth became associated with pain in the Western world and why it does not have to be the case;
self-hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques;
videos of HypnoBirthing® and gentle births;
sessions for helping you release your fears,
a whole series of techniques that the birth companion can help you with,
and much more...
