Group Hypnobirthing Courses

COVID-19 UPDATES TO SERVICES - PLEASE READ!

 

The Birth Bubble Group Hypnobirthing Course has been running online via Live Zoom calls since March 2020, when the Covid-19 lockdown began. The course has been fully adapted to work really well online, and the feedback has been very positive with how the parents have found the course, content, structure, logistics and support. 

 

The course content is the same as the Birth Bubble in-person courses, so you leave with the same hypnobirthing toolkit as before. However, in addition to getting a full hypnobirthing course, the Birth Bubble course now includes additional content (to ensure you are not missing out with the cancellation of antenatal classes), such as a detailed look at all your pain relief options for labour (including explaining to you what is available in which settings, and the benefits/drawbacks of each option, etc).

 

The course really is a full birth preparation course in every sense and is very comprehensive. The parents who have completed the courses with me since the move to online who have now had their babies have all been having really positive births. In my eyes, this is the best accolade to the fact that the course, although online, is still "working" very well!

 

Please take a look at some reviews of the Zoom Group Courses here and on the Birth Bubble Google Business Page.  

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. 

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