You’ll not be alone if you’re feeling excited to meet your little one, but perhaps a little apprehensive about the birth. A Mama’s-tlc hypnobirthing course is designed to take you away from those feelings of apprehension, to feeling informed, calm, confident and in control.
I originally trained as a scientist, so my courses are factual and evidenced-based, signposting you to the latest information, as well as offering a practical and realistic approach to antenatal education.
As a busy, working parent to a toddler and baby, I know that time can often be tight. That’s why I offer a variety of course options to suit all births and all circumstances. From Hypnobirthing @ Lunch, Hypnobirthing Essentials and Hypnobirthing Refresher Sessions to full Group and Private Hypnobirthing Courses – there’s something for everyone. Take a look below.
Online Taster Sessions – Free, 1 hour
Mama’s tlc provides straight-talking, realistic, factual and evidence-based hypnobirthing antenatal courses to suit all pregnancies and births. Whether you’re tight on time, months away from giving birth, having your first or subsequent baby, there’s something to take you from feeling apprehensive or overwhelmed to informed, calm, confident and in control.
This session will give you the opportunity to find out more about hypnobirthing and the courses that I offer. You and your birth partner will also pick up some top tips for labour and birth.
Comfy clothes, snacks and a cup of tea are recommended. Your birth partner is also very welcome (and recommended) to join us, but don’t worry if they can’t make it.
