“Helen, you were amazing. Such a breath of fresh air, so passionate about what you teach, and so patient with us all and our questions. You never made anyone feel like their questions were silly, and you made everyone feel safe and comfortable in the learning environment. Your knowledge and way of teaching is just awesome, and I think your positivity really helps instill that confidence in the women that we totally can do this! We will be recommending you and your course to everyone, as I honestly think no matter what the circumstance, there is something for everyone in it, and your work is going to lead to many more beautiful birth experiences for families.
We are so looking forward to ours now!”

Bex and  Mike

“It was really refreshing to view birth as a wonderful experience that doesn’t have to be panicky/overwhelming and painful – that you can embrace the intensity and allow/trust your body to do a lot of the work. For me it cemented the view of birth as a natural process rather than a medical occurance, which helped me feel empowered as a woman and gave me the confidence to change from an Obestrician and hospital birth to a midwife with the option of a home/birth centre birth.”




“Thanks to HypnoBirthing I have overcome all fear related to pain and failure of my first two babies. This technique empowered my mind and body to ensure I could give birth naturally and comfortably. Birthing my son in this way also gave me a lot of strength to make decisions and manage my life bravely. Thanks HypnoBirthing for this amazing life experience.” 





You will learn to teach pregnant couples the following:

  • Relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to eliminate the fear and tension that cause long labour and unnecessary levels of pain, replacing them with confidence, calm and comfort.
  • Special breathing techniques for relaxation, labour and birth.
  • Visualisation to produce a shorter, more comfortable labour.
  • Mindfulness techniques to maximise your ability to stay focussed, calm and feeling in control.
  • Birthing Affirmations to build confidence and to help you look forward to giving birth.
  • Massage to release endorphins.
  • Fear Release to overcome any concerns you may have about giving birth and parenting.
  • To build confidence and trust in yourself and how to listen to and work with your baby and your body.
  • How the mother’s body is designed to work in neuromuscular harmony with nature throughout labour.
  • To practice deep relaxation during and between uterine surges.
  • The importance of prenatal and perinatal bonding.

Why is Relaxation Important?

The body and mind work at their optimum when relaxed and free of tension.
When having your baby using
Hypnobirthing techniques, what you will experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or starting at a fire. You will be conversant and in good spirits – totally relaxed, but fully in control. You will be aware of your body’s contractions, but will be able to determine the extent to which you feel the surge. You will experience your birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without the fear and tension that cause pain. Your body’s natural anaesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that cause pain.
When it is time for your baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved.
