OTHER COURSE FORMATS

HYPNOBIRTHING ESSENTIALS         £175 (instead of £195)

This course is delivered via Zoom for now. This is designed for mums who are at the end of their pregnancy or have attended an antenatal course such as NCT or Bump and Baby, and who don't feel they need a complete hypnobirthing course. It's a shortened version (4 hours in total), however I recommend that the full course is still the best option even for those who have taken a full antenatal course.
What is essential to know, and which the essentials course doesn't cover, includes: knowledge of how your body works in labour, the risks and benefits of certain medical interventions such as induction, and common drugs in labour.
Get in touch to find out more about dates for this course.

REFRESHER SESSION                          £108 (instead of £120)

This course is delivered via Zoom for now. For couples that have done the course already in the past and want to refresh their memory for a new pregnancy. Content can be customised to your needs.

This is a 2.5hr individual session.
