 — childbirth education for a natural and more comfortable birth experience

with Helen Bartrom HBCE Affiliate of the HypnoBirthing ®Institute

HypnoBirthing uses deep relaxation, visualisation, affirmations and special breathing techniques to achieve a confident, calm, peaceful birth and a positive birthing experience for both you and your baby.

HypnoBirthing is a childbirth method that focuses on preparing parents for a gentle birth. In HypnoBirthing classes you will learn proven techniques in a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis. HypnoBirthing encourages a calm, peaceful and natural pregnancy, birth and bonding experience for families.

The benefits of HypnoBirthing are:

  • Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
  • Reduces, and often eliminates, the need for epidurals, other chemical pain relief, episiotomy and other interventions.
  • Shortens the first stage of labour by several hours.
  • Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving you with energy for birth.
  • Your birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
  • More rapid postnatal recovery.
  • Happy, well adjusted babies, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines.
  • A more relaxed and enjoyable pregnancy.
  • A calm, peaceful and confident birth, leaving you and your baby with a positive birthing experience.

Courses are: 5 x Saturday afternoons 2.00pm – 4.30pm

“Your natural laid back honest and open approach — and talking from your own experience really helped to bring home all that the book
speaks about.

I really appreciate you sharing that with us as it was so informative and it gave greater meaning overall.  I am recommending HypnoBirthing to all
my pregnant friends as a result of this wonderful course.”
