Group Hypnobirthing Courses

When is the best time to take the course?

Taking a hypnobirthing course in your second trimester or the early part of your third trimester works really well, as this gives you lots of time to practice the techniques and enjoy the benefits in your pregnancy.

 

There is no right or wrong time though and what you will learn will always make a positive impact on your birth experience. 

Our Group Courses run once per month over 2 weekends (so no late finishes after a long day at work!) 

Groups are kept small, to 5 couples maximum, in order for you to get the most out of your hypnobirthing course.
