The classes are usually run weekly (5 x 2.5 hours) and are an interesting mix of background information and theory together with plenty of relaxation and practical work. Releasing fear about childbirth or parenting is a major part of the course and there is always a distinct change in attitude, particularly from the mothers, once this part is completed. We will watch videos showing labouring mothers, comfortable & in good humour, with hardly a sound as their baby is born – they are very real proof that it really is possible to experience a calm, natural birth by using our techniques. Please read my clients’ amazing birth stories.
“My husband, the midwife and I could hardly believe how perfect it was. We have no doubt that HypnoBirthing not only affected me but also my baby.”
Many couples are quite skeptical at the start of the course and doubt that it may be possible for them to give birth with little or even no pain. However, by the end of the course they feel excited and confident and really look forward to the big day!
“The midwife & doctor kept asking me “Are you sure you don’t feel the contractions?” & I kept replying “No, nothing..”.. pretty amazing..
So, why do we teach HypnoBirthing over 5 weeks?
Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are very effective tools. For you to be able use them when you are in labour is an acquired skill, that needs to be learned gradually in stages and practiced in between sessions. This ensures that you have the time to develop the conditioned responses that make HypnoBirthing so successful. There is no short cut, and this why we teach our course over 5 sessions.
Learning HypnoBirthing over a day or weekend does not work nearly as effectively. The brain and body memory have a limited learning capacity, especially in pregnancy!
This course also allows the time to explore your feelings, relax with your partner and to resolve and release any anxieties that may arise. I like to work with you personally and to follow your progress, so that we can ensure that you are fully ready, relaxed and confident as you approach the birth of your baby.
Parents, midwives and doctors are constantly amazed by the wonderful births experienced through HypnoBirthing and it is already used by the NHS. Trials are taking place to determine whether it will be offered across Britain on the NHS.
“The midwife who delivered my baby was very impressed with the speed of the delivery and also that I did not need pain relief. She admitted she was skeptical when I first mentioned HypnoBirthing, but after witnessing my birth she read all about it.”
Group classes are held in Gibraltar. If you have friends who would like to form a group then I will come to you if you have a large enough lounge and parking nearby. Spaces fill up quickly for classes so please contact me as early in your pregnancy as possible.
Spain is a huge country and occasionally you may be located a long way from a practitioner. If so then permission can be requested to teach the program over Skype.
