Making a Difference To Birth For You and Your Baby

Hypnobirthing gives you the knowledge, confidence and tools to have a positive birth experience.

To understand how to release fear and learn to trust your body, your instinct, and your baby, you need information and knowledge. Our Hypnobirthing classes provide you with the information, tools and techniques to be in control of your baby's birth. 

Unfortunately there is a lot of negativity portrayed in the media, and even through friends and family, surrounding birth. This negativity can contribute to your fears of birth on both a conscious and subconscious level. By using positive language and hypnobirthing techniques, we can release these fears and replace them with feelings of confidence and empowerment. 

It is essential to first have an understanding about the physiology of birth and to know what options and choices are available to you. Although we do cover some birth physiology and labour hormones on the hypnobirthing course, we recommend booking onto The Real Birth Workshop prior to attending a hypnobirthing course. The Real Birth Workshop is available as a face to face class or a digital e-learning programme. 

The hypnobirthing course is taught over 10 hours (typically split over 4 x 2.5 hour sessions) with a choice of either small group sessions or individual sessions for just you and your partner. Included in the course cost is The Wise Hippo birthing programme manual, access to our resources such as positive birth affirmations and a wide selection of hypnobirthing scripts.

If you have previously used hypnobirthing and would like to recap the techniques, there is the option to book a 3 hour express course (with access to our resources and scripts).


All courses are currently being offered virtually due to COVID19. 

Our antenatal and hypnobirthing courses are designed to support and empower women through the incredible journey of pregnancy and birth. All classes are led by Heather, practicing midwife and hypnobirthing instructor. 

During the course you will be guided though hypnotherapy sessions to completely relax you and instil a sense of calm. You will be taught breathing techniques that are hugely beneficial for giving birth. Your partner will be taught the techniques too so that he/she can support you during pregnancy and birth, and together you will practice reading through hypnobirthing scripts. Lots of resources will provided to enable you to practice at home and you are strongly encouraged to practice hypnobirthing regularly during your pregnancy. Included in the course is a session on  how to write your birth plan (for all types of births), partner massage techniques and the opportunity to ask questions related to your individual pregnancy and births.  
Ongoing support is available by joining our positive birth programme membership. Usually charged at £39, you will receive a free membership to our private facebook group where you will have access to exclusive, relevent video content, evidence based information and guidelines, and fortnightly live, Midwife Q&A sessions. 
In a local study 84% of women using Hypnobirthing have a normal birth, and less likely to need a caesarean. (Royal Wolverhampton NHS trust -2012). Evidence suggests that women who hypnobirth have less need for pain relief and shorter labours. Hypnobirthing is not only suitable for natural births, it is of great benefit for medicalised births, inductions of labour and caesarean sections.
