Hypnobirthing Class - One day group course, 30 April '17
Sun 30 April 2017, 10:00 – 17:30 BST
Better Birth Stories teaches the one day Hypnobirthing Course which covers everything a birth couple need to ensure the very best birth for them.
On the course you are taught about hypnosis and hypnobirthing and how they work. You learn about the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous systems and how to use this to your benefit. We talk through what other mammals require to give birth calmly. You will learn about the stages of labour and what your body and baby are actively doing.
You are taught powerful breathing techniques and strong visualisations that you use throughout your labour to keep you calm and focused. We also then cover birth breathing, perineal massage, pelvic floor exercises and why we need them, the fallacy of due dates, positions for birthing, all your birth choices from obstetric units to home birth and what they include and all about the Golden Hour post birth.
Hypnobirthing teaches the birth partner how to actively be a positive part of the birth process so that the mother has a strong, dedicated and knowledgeable continual care giver. We also then watch a hypnobirth recording so that you may see the wonderful process in action.
On top of all of this those attending courses with Better Birth Stories are given The Hypnobirthing Book, full ring-bound course notes and all the MP3 recordings they will need to listen to.
It is a complete and highly effective course.
Hypnobirthing courses taught by Better Birth Stories are non judgemental and can be used for home births, hospital births, unplanned and planned c-sections. It can be used before or instead of an epidural. The premise is the same for all, to be calm and confident throughout your labour.
On the day there will also be lots of tea, coffee, biscuits, breaks and laughs. The class location is 2 minutes walk from the lovely Northcote Road so there are lots of options for a great lunch.
