The Courses

Mama’s tlc courses are designed to provide you with support, care, evidence-based information, tools and techniques so you can have your best birth experience. The courses cover all aspects of birth preparation (not just relaxation and breathing) – we provide everything you need for a calm, confident, comfortable and positive birth experience.

We provide a variety of options so you can find something that works for you. Feeling a bit sceptical or unsure? Try a Taster Session. Ready to jump in, want to meet other parents and chat? Sign up for a Group Course. Want something more bespoke to you? Check out the Private Course.  

We recommend joining a course from 20 weeks onwards – giving you plenty of time to reap the benefits of hypnobirthing during your pregnancy and labour.

Next available taster session: 23rd September (7:30pm) or 27th September (10:00am)

What’s covered?

The Theory – we’re a bit geeky here and love research. We’ll share with you evidence for using hypnobirthing, hypnotherapy and the power of language. You’ll be ready for a positive birth experience.
The Body Bit – looking at birth physiology, how your body works, the stages of labour and how breathing techniques, pelvic floor exercises and perineal massage can support your body. We’ll also learn some relaxing massage techniques. You’ll feel confident in your body’s innate, natural ability.
The Mind Bit – throughout the course we’ll take you through some guided visualisations and share relaxation techniques for you to use at home – giving you space to breathe, slow down and relax. You’ll feel calm through your pregnancy and birth.
The Practical Bit – covering the UK maternity system, who can support you during pregnancy and birth, the role of your birth partner, your birth choices and birth preferences (including where to give birth, different types of birth, comfort options and what happens after birth). You’ll be comfortable making informed decisions right for you and your baby.
