Bare Birthing Courses

My antenatal & hypnobirthing courses are designed to be all you need to prepare you for birth and beyond. We'll cover the science of what happens during pregnancy, labour & birth, teaching you to trust your body and the process, so that any fear you have will hopefully be abolished. We'll cover all manner of birth places and types, to prepare you for a variety of eventualities. There is no right or wrong way, or right or wrong place, to give birth - if you are prepared, feel in control and you know your options and your rights, then your birth can be a calm and positive one. 

We'll cover some simple hypnobirthing tools and techniques that will help you stay calm and in control before, during and after birth, and talk about ways that your birth partner can be truly helpful during your baby's journey into the world.

We'll also discuss some gentle movement you can do to help stay relaxed and encourage baby into an optimum position.
