Hypnobirthing in Birmingham
Pregnant and researching hypnobirthing in Birmingham but not really sure if it’s right for you? Why not read on then get in touch if you’d like to talk it through?
Think hypnobirthing is a fad and only for hippy types, the famous or the rich? Well, it’s not. It’s for everyday people like you and me who recognise the value in approaching pregnancy and birth with a fearless, calm and positive frame of mind.
Think hypnobirthing is only for ‘natural’ vaginal births only? Wrong! Hypnobirthing is beneficial for every birthing woman and her partner. Wouldn’t everybody like a calm and relaxed birth whether it be vaginal, Cesarean or otherwise?
As a birth doula in Birmingham, I support mums and their partners through pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting. Accompanying them and helping them find their own paths through their most important life events.
In 2015, I supported a couple during their successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). She was a hypnobirthing mum (she’d attended classes) and I was struck by how peaceful and calm she was in labour. I observed her using positive birth affirmations, listening to hypnobirthing CD’s and relaxing scripts. She even printed out some key words and affirmations for me to use with her during labour.
It was then that I realised the power behind such simple and gentle techniques and I decided to embark on hypnobirthing training so that I could assist mums and couples to have the best birth experience possible.

Why choose my Hypnobirthing course?
As a birth doula, I have supported many women and couples through birth so I know what truly works. I am in a unique position because I not only teach the techniques but I get to see them applied time and time again at births. In addition to your course material, I’ll be giving you the additional information that I’ve found useful at births; the knowledge, hints, tips and tricks that will get you fully prepared for birth.
The Hypnobirthing Course
I’m currently offering 1:1 hypnobirthing in Birmingham and the West Midlands for mums, couples and other birth partners. The sessions are delivered in the comfort of your own home, at a time to suit you! You get to decide if we meet weekly, fortnightly or anything in between which means, unlike a weekly group course, you never miss a session if you can’t make a particular day.
Many couples prefer a 1:1 course over a group course not only because it’s convenient but also because the course can be tailored to your individual needs. You get to ask me questions that you may feel too embarrassed to ask in a group setting; no question is silly! We can discuss any anxieties you may have in confidence too – I promise there’ll be no judgement at all from me!
The course consists of 4 x 1.5 hour sessions – times/days are flexible.
We’ll be covering:
- Basic birth physiology and how you can work with your body to birth confidently
- The power of the mind and how you can harness that power to birth like a boss
- Hypnobirthing relaxation scripts and how you can practice them along with visualisations to release fear, manage pain and achieve a deep state of relaxation
- The breathing techniques that will assist you and carry you calmly through labour and birth
- Signs of labour and what comes next
- The power of touch and massage techniques to aid comfort during labour
- The birth partner’s role in labour and birth
- Writing your birth preferences (aka birth plan) and so much more….
All resources such as a current birth book, course material, relaxation tracks (and goody bags) are included in the course fee.
I offer hypnobirthing in Birmingham and the West Midlands and may be able to travel further on request.
Course fee is £320
