Even before we trained as hypnobirthing teachers, we had seen the effects of hypnobirthing again and again. we have seen women hypnobirthing at home, hypnobirthing in a pool in a gorgeous birth centre, we have seen women using hypnobirthing techniques whilst sitting with an epidural and a syntocinon drip on labour ward. we have even seen women using hypnobirthing in theatre.

Hypnobirthing is about releasing fear and changing to a positive mindset about childbirth. We know that the power of the mind is incredible. We know that where the mind leads the body follows. With this in mind many women using hypnobirthing are able to have the birth that they have been dreaming of. For others (generally because their babies have other ideas) they may not have the ideal birth that they have always dreamed of, but by using the hypnobirthing techniques, whatever happens, they report a positive childbirth experience and that in itself is priceless.


  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth.

  • Your baby will arrive to a serene and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.

  • Length of labour is often much shorter with Hypnobirthing births.

  • Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births allowing your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.

  • Mums often bounce back quicker after a Hypnobirthing birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.

  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. A truly shared and loving experience.

The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits to your baby cannot be over-estimated.


We repeatedly get wonderful birth stories of Hypnobirthing babies being calm, content and sleeping really well. They seem to thrive better. It may seem miraculous but this is how Hypnobirthing is designed to be.

Hypnobirthing is a team effort. It is practiced daily with your birth partner who will have a central and active role in this experience. You will use scripts, mp3s and triggers to help aid you into a positive mindset and a more relaxed birthing experience.  It teaches you to trust in your mind, your body and your baby. It gives you the information and the knowledge to create your own positive birth experience.

Given the choice, we would advise doing the course in the second or third trimester of your pregnancy so you can enjoy the benefits during your pregnancy as well as at the birth of your baby.  It is not so much a matter of learning facts so they are fresh in your mind, but more a matter of absorbing the information so that it becomes second nature, but hypnobirthing works whenever you do it.
