WOW! Hypnobirthing Course Content

WOW! Hypnobirthing - your complete antenatal course

 

Our WOW! Hypnobirthing course is a complete antenatal course over two days. We aim to reduce fears and build confidence through clear explanation and physical practice. You will prepare your mind and body for a calm, confident birth, however and wherever your baby is born.

 

The course can be taken as part of a small group (max 5 couples) or privately.

 

Your course pack includes course notes, information sheets, a good book and exclusive downloads to keep your new skills and confidence topped-up.

 

Everything you learn can be used in any birth setting.

The course is a mixture of theory and practice, linking mind and body, and includes:

  •  

  • What hypnosis is - and what it isn't!

  • Theory (how it works) and practice (how it applies to you) of hypnosis and hypnobirthing

  • An exploration of your own particular concerns and preferences for birth

  • Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis

  • How to enhance the flow of your labour hormones

  • The impact of fear and stress

  • Adaptation of the birth environment to your benefit

  • Breathing, relaxation and working with your body

  • Signs of early labour and what to do when

  • When labour doesn't start on its own: induction process and options

  • Physical process of labour and birth

  • Techiques for rapid relaxation - relax "now", not in 20 minutes' time

  • Positions and movement for more comfortable birth

  • Massage for relaxation and comfort

  • Working with the health professionals

  • Writing and using affirmations

  • Creation of an ongoing "birth action plan"

And more!

 

Most couples prefer to take the course a couple of months before their baby is due. This allows for plenty of time to practise what you learn and it will feel relevant to your stage of pregnancy. Some people prefer to take the course closer to their due date so it all feels fresher and others prefer to take it sooner to give themselves longer to practise. Or it may be that one set of course dates suits you better than others. It's your choice!
