It's a big claim, but Zana and Barbara believe our WOW! Hypnobirthing antenatal courses can be transformational for you and your birth partner! Just have a read of these amazing positive birth stories from women who benefited from our hypnobirthing courses. They felt calmer in pregnancy, more capable in labour and well supported by their partners.
Wondering how you can feel strong, empowered and capable too?
We run two-day WOW! Hypnobirthing antenatal courses in small groups and, if you wish to take the course privately, we can create a bespoke, personal course just for you. The first day of our group hypnobirthing course focuses mostly on the theory and practice of self-hypnosis for birth. The second day focuses more on the physical aspects of birth as well as informed decision-making. The whole course culminates in drawing together all that you have learned so that you devise a personal and ongoing "action plan" that maximises the opportunities for positive, calm and confident birth. We welcome clients from all over Southampton, Salisbury, Winchester, Romsey, the New Forest, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire - and beyond! For best results we recommend you enrol on the full 2-day course and afterwards you can keep practising all the techniques you will learn on the run up to your baby's birth. To help you, you will receive exclusive downloads to listen to, only available to course participants, as well as a comprehensive book to remind you of everything you'll learn. You can also choose to attend our weekly Relaxation Hour (at the New Forest Birth Centre, Ashurst) to keep you topped up. If you're not sure if WOW! Hypnobirthing is for you, please contact us so we can help you decide. We won't be pushy!
We don't make any promises of a pain-free natural birth because that would be unprofessional. However we believe that our WOW! Hypnobirthing courses will help you feel more calm, more positive, will reduce fear or anxiety and build confidence and will provide you with realistic easy-to-learn techniques to help you and your birth partner manage your experience much better, whether you're planning a home birth, hospital birth and if you need more medical care.
