Hypnobirthing Weekend Courses on the Kent Coast
If you want to have a positive experience if bringing your baby into your life, then this is the course for you. This is Hypnobirthing with a twist and it’s getting great reviews from everyone!
Hypnobirthing is about how to release fear, tune into your mind and body and connect with your baby and partner in a way other antenatal classes don’t. This Course will give you all that Kate and Meghan learnt to have great births, but it also does more. It prepares you for early pregnancy, looks at your mental wellbeing, self care and importantly, your relationships.
Taking a therapeutic approach, combining CBT, Hypnosis and Mindfulness, this course gives you the chance to create a “toolkit” that suits you and your partner for life as parents. Simply put; it’s great therapy!
My priority has also been to ensure you have a stunning, comfortable environment to learn in (or getaway for the weekend?) with your partner as a special treat before your baby is born. Plus, learn how to Hypnobirth and prepare for your baby in an place you will remember forever, feeling pampered and rejuvenated from fresh sea air, delicious food and my exquisite handmade aromatherapy products.
I’ve chosen to run these relaxing weekends from the historic Waterloo Room in The Falstaff Hotel just off Ramsgate Harbour.
What will you learn?
I’ve been teaching Hypnobirthing for 10+ years and trained with The Hypnobirthing Institute (Marie Mongan), before teaching Mindful Hypnobirthing and now my new syllabus which combines all I know with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy. I recommend my lovely previous client and colleague Hollie’s De Cruz’ Book, “Your Baby, Your Birth”, a best-seller, and written in a way that everyone can grasp easily and apply to their pregnancy and Birth. My Hypnobirthing Course is a modern re-working of the traditional techniques used by the masses but presented in a way that is identifiable with you and your birth partner and dedicated to you having your baby, your way (very much “Positive, not Perfect”). This approach works wonders because it sets you up for any birth, anywhere, with confidence giving you valuable life-skills too, leaving you looking forward to birth and parenting, your way.
The course is run over two sessions during the weekend. In order for you to get the most out of your hypnobirthing course, I teach a maximum of 5 couples. (If you prefer, I offer private, one-to-one sessions with you and your birth companion, either online, or your home if local to me in Kent or London).
In summary, you will learn and receive:
A simple, effective toolkit on how you reach an ultimate state of relaxation. Several group hypnotherapy sessions are built into the weekend to help you all feel empowered, calm and confident, free of fear and looking forward to birth. (No trickery or pocket watches, I promise).
Several effective exercises, demonstrated, on how to use massage, a birthing ball and positioning for pregnancy, labour and birth. (Don’t worry - no panting like dogs or embarrassing couples moments!)
A good understanding of why your body was designed to grow, nurture and birth a baby, your way. You will learn about the anatomy and physiology of birth and well as what is normal and what is considered risky and what to expect.
Tried and tested breathing, visualisation and hypnosis techniques, as well as other simple mindfulness tools to use throughout pregnancy, labour and into parenting.
Understanding the hormones of birth and how to work with them to your advantage. Getting to grips with the mind-body connection and how to change a mindset just by choosing to do so.
Wellbeing, Self Care and Relationship coaching and questionnaires to keep you feeling at your most balanced all the way through.
The Birth Partners role and how they can support you in the way you most want and need. How to create the best environment for birth and how to work with your medical professionals to ensure a positive experience.
You will receive the book “Your Baby, Your Birth” and access to 5 x MP3s upon booking, Then a further 6 MP3s, a course manual, a fab goodie bag, great bonding time with your partner and the other couples on the course, access to a Private Facebook Group, and ongoing email and WhatsApp group support until you have your baby in your arms.
