HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. 

You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.  When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same will-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome. 

HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.

HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts.  With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

You will receive:

  • 12 hours of childbirth education classes
  • the official HypnoBirthing® manual/book
  • HypnoBirthing® CD with Rainbow Relaxation and Daily Birthing Affirmations
  • a HypnoBirthing® Course Learning Pack, carefully organized lesson-by-lesson to make the course clear and easy to follow. Within the pack you will receive all course handouts including, relaxation scripts to practice, posters for visualizations, colourful birth companion prompt sheets, worksheets, birth plan support pack and guidance, breathing guidance sheets and much, much more
  • 24-hour advice and support - Jean likes to think we work as a team - mum, her Birth Partner and herself - ensuring as parents to be you are confident, calm and empowered .

We see  HypnoBirthing® as more than just classes but a whole network of support for you and your family throughout this special time

After such a bad experience with my first birth (I was induced and ended up having a forceps delivery) I was really anxious about labour and wanted to have a nicer experience the second time round.  Ruth mentioned that there were Hypnobirthing classes running and I should maybe think about it.

When I told my husband he said it would be  a waste of time and wouldn't work for me, which to be honest I thought that too, but I was willing to try anything so we agreed to do it.  After the first class we both came away and said everything that Jean had said made sense.  The class was very interesting and we could see how it worked, but I still wasn't convinced it would work for me.

In the classes Jean gave us lots of things to take with us into our labour - breathing techniques, visualisations and relaxation techniques. We watched  lots of videos of Hypnobirthing which were amazing.  I kept thinking,  if my birth can be like this it'll be amazing but deep down I still didn't think it would work for me...

How wrong I was! I had the most amazing experience, my birth was so calm and chilled because of the Hypnobithing techniques I had learnt.  It was just like the videos I had watched in class.  I had no pain relief and used the birthing pool and he was born 3 hours after going into the pool. I used the rainbow relaxation throughout the labour and visualisations which was all I needed. I couldn't believe how much it worked during the contractions they weren't painful at all.

Jean was a fantastic teacher and I cannot thank her enough for my lovely birthing experience. It was worth every penny. - Linzi Jones (30) Carlisle
