The "Wise Hippo Birthing Programme," is a complete antenatal course, so you don't need to do any other birthing course, (unless you want to of course!) which will give you all the tools and knowledge you need to take control of your birth. Using education, hypnosis techniques and deep relaxation, you will learn how to birth more comfortably, calmly and without fear.

4 simple sessions...

  • The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme runs as 4 x 2 hr classes, so you get 8hrs of informative, honest (I will always be honest!) and fun, info about birth. And most importantly, I provide THE best cakes, comfy sofas and a warm and cosy room for you and your birth partner-no hard chairs in a village hall for you!

  • I have a ton of knowledge, training and experience with pregnancy, birth and parenting and I am soooooo passionate about supporting parents to make the right choices, for them, their bodies and their babies. 

  • To support your practice at home, I provide you with a workbook, 8 MP3's and access to a video library full of birth videos. So don't worry, if the hypnosis is so relaxing that you fall asleep during the session!

  • After your course is finished, you get ongoing support from me: If you need a chat, to rant, or to get support with your paractise or a change in situation with your pregnancy/birth, just give me a call.

  • This course will leave you and your birth partner feeling prepared and in control, so you can stop feeling nervous and start feeling excited!

On the course, you will learn all about:

  • What happens to your body during labour, so you can understand how to help.

  • What "Hypnosis for birth" means and how it can help you during labour.

  • The impact that fear has on your body, and how you can take charge of any negative thoughts.

  • Relaxation, and how it is the antidote to discomfort.

  • Medical interventions and your options.

  • Physical preparations for birth

  • Soothing strokes and the power of positive touch

  • How to use the techniques during labour

  • Humming your baby down – birthing your baby

  • The important role your birth partner will play
