Hypnobirthing

in South London

Our unique midwife-led Hypnobirthing course, run by Vicky from The Group Antenatal Classes, provides you with the necessary skills for practice and preparation for birth as a couple. Hypnobirthing techniques help ensure that the birth of your baby is an empowering and positive event, allowing you to experience the magic of birth, whilst remaining calm, alert and in control. This facilitates a more comfortable, relaxed and rewarding birth, with the potential of less intervention and a stronger chance of a shorter labour. 

This course complements any Antenatal classes you are already attending and includes:

  • Basics of hypnotherapy
  • The physiological process of birth and active birthing positions
  • Guided relaxation and hypnosis scripts
  • Breathing exercises 
  • Writing birth affirmations
  • Using aromatherapy oils for labour and birth 
  • Confidence building
  • Techniques to release fear, tension and pain
  • Birth preparation
  • Information about your choices for birth
  • The role of the birth partner
  • You will receive 'The Hypnobithing Course' handbook and 'The Hypnobirthing Book' and MP3

Vicky, who is an experienced midwife, teaches in a nurturing environment where you can discuss your feelings openly and combat any fears or anxieties you may have around pregnancy and labour. The Hypnobirthing course is also ideal for birth partners who will be taught about the realities of birth, their role in pregnancy and labour, how they can support their partner, and how they can practice the scripts, too. The courses are a chance for you to come together, learn how to work as a team through your birth, and be part of the wider decision making process.

Previous couples that have attended Vicky's Hypnobirthing courses have experienced a more positive birth, and felt empowered and happy with their birth experience – whatever route it has taken. Vicky aims to increase your confidence and leave you feeling fully prepared for your birth. You will acquire the knowledge and skills that will help ensure you are part of the decision-making process alongside midwives and obstetricians, ultimately helping you to achieve the birth that is right for you.
