What is covered in hypnobirthing classes?
Expectant parents and birth partners need to know what happens in late pregnancy. They also need to recognise the signs of labour and understand how it will unfold.
A significant proportion of the course will explain how the body is gets ready for labour. What changes you can expect to notice? If your midwife offers you a 'sweep; or suggests booking you in for an induction, what should you say? After a hypnobirthing course, you will be confident to know whether this is right for you and your baby. Unsure if you will you know when labour has started? Don't worry we will tell you what the signs are and what you need to do. What does labour feel like? Whilst no two labours are the same, we will describe to you what the common experiences are.
Hypnobirthing will teach you all these aspects in great detail. It will also arm you with ways to really understand the choices that you have. And give you confidence to know when to ask more questions of your caregivers.
Here are some of the core areas we will cover.
Part 1 - Laying the foundations
Part 2 - Hypnobirthing techniques and usual birth scenarios
Part 3 - Hypnobirthing for pregnancy
Part 4 - Hypnobirthing for labour
"I really enjoyed the classes and found them hugely beneficial. I feel as though I am already noticeably calmer and more prepared for birth. I particularly enjoyed the informative aspects of the course as I didn't realise how much choice and power I have when it comes to labour. It has taken me some time to get into the scripts, but I am keeping at it and hopefully I will manage to absorb it all.." Carol
