If you're here and you're a first-time mum, perhaps you're signed up to an antenatal class - an NCT course or similar. Your friends have most likely told you that you won’t actually learn much on the antenatal course. But, that that’s ok, because you only really signed up to make some new mum friends. And anyway, everyone tells you that you can’t really prepare for birth anyway….
Deep down, you probably know that you can prepare really effectively for birth, and maybe that is why you are here. Then someone mentions hypnobirthing - it sounds a bit "woo", but you hear good things so here you are doing your research into courses.
Or perhaps you’re here because things didn’t go so well last time, and you would like to prepare yourself with the techniques, mindset work, skills and support you need to a better experience of birth this time around?
If any of the above ring true, then I am so pleased you are here...as that niggle that you are feeling that you can prepare for your baby’s birth, is absolutely right!
The very best way to experience a good, positive or even, to quote one a recent client, a “DREAM” labour and birth experience, is to get yourself PREPARED!
The Birth Bubble Hypnobirthing & Birth Preparation Courses and Masterclasses have been created to be super EFFECTIVE and extremely PRACTICAL in order for you to feel 100% READY for the day you'll meet your baby.
Don't just take my word for it, you can check out positive feedback from other parents over here!
No matter how your baby is born, the type of birth you want, or whether this is your first baby or you are a seasoned pro, the one thing you all deserve is to have the tools, skills, support and knowledge you need to have a POSITIVE BIRTH EXPERIENCE.
So before we go any further, you might be wondering...what actually is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a logical, practical &
modern birth education programme, which is based on the science of how the mind and body work when a woman is in labour
The aim of hypnobirthing is to equip parents with the practical tools to work with their body on the big day. When giving birth, our bodies work best when we are feeling relaxed. On this course, you will therefore learn how to use effective hypnotherapy, relaxation and mindset techniques, helping you to let go of any fears you may have around childbirth, and replace them with confidence and trust in your body.
In addition to the hypnotherapy techniques you will learn to use, the course also gives you all of the evidence-based education about birth and the maternity system, so that you approach your baby's birth feeling prepared, calm and confident.
The thing that I just LOVE about hypnobirthing is that it makes a difference to ALL kinds of birth; you don't have to have or want a water birth for hypnobirthing to be effective...the syllabus prepares you and your birth partner to have a positive experience if you go on to have a vaginal birth, a water birth, an induced birth, a C-Section or an instrumental delivery. The point of hypnobirthing is for you to have a positive experience, however your baby is born
The Birth Bubble classes are centred upon being:
You will complete this course feeling truly READY for labour! To ensure this happens for all parents taught, I equip you with a “toolbox” of practical techniques to use in your pregnancy and for birth. You will feel confident in how and when to use the techniques, and how and when to practice.
You will leave feeling like a bit of a birth expert, because the course gives you so much education and useful birth knowledge about how the body works, how the mind works, how the maternity system works, how to navigate it, how to get the best care, how to make the best decisions… the list goes on! Be prepared to feel like a total pro!
My teaching methods are modern and accessible. I myself had my first baby only a few years ago, so I know what you are going through and my hope is that you will feel we are on the same wavelength. I am continuously reading the latest research, attending birth worker CPD days and courses and updating my knowledge to ensure I teach you the most evidence-based, useful and modern syllabus.
I also believe it is time to really update birth preparation classes to ensure they are USEFUL, ENJOYABLE whilst being really EFFECTIVE!

Know exactly how to prepare for birth with a clear plan for practicing your tools and techniques
