So what is Hypnobirthing?

If you are anything like me, you may find the word 'Hypnobirthing' off putting or maybe you have heard people talk about it and just don't understand what it is.  To some, it conjures up images of swaying pocket watches, being in a trance or people barking like dogs making fools of themselves for the entertainment factor or deep chanting naked in a forest in the middle of nowhere.  It is actually none of the above.  Hypnobirthing is purely understanding the physiology of labour and birth, dealing with any fears in your pregnancy so they don't hinder your birth and learning a whole host of coping mechanisms so you and your birth partner can discover the joy and magic of birth, and actually look forward to it.  It is logical, scientific and a great way to encourage relaxing in pregnancy and feeling prepared and confident during your birth and beyond.

The Little Birth Company Hypnobirthing

  • The basic physiology of birth

  • The positive belief that giving birth can be the most empowering and positive experience 

  • How to release any fears that may in some way be associated with childbirth, and thus avoid the ‘Fear-Tension-Pain Cycle’

  • How to stay calm, relaxed and in control throughout your labour even if your birth takes an unexpected turn

  • How to promote the production of your birthing hormones

  • How to trust your body to work naturally and in harmony with your baby

  • How to prepare a birth plan so that you can be better informed and feel knowledgeable

  • How your birth partner can support you to enhance your experience

 

       and so much more …..

How much are Hypnobirthing courses?

In an ideal world, hypnobirthing would be available to all, but only half of expectant parents attend any form of antenatal education and hospitals are cutting antenatal education more and more, so fewer people feel confident approaching birth and beyond.  It is important to me that you can access classes whatever your situation. 

 

With this in mind I offer a range of classes to suit everyone, whether time, cost, type of birth, medical condition or something else is a factor which may stop you from booking.

 

If these options don't suit or if you have special circumstances please get in touch so we can discuss alternatives

Sean, Antenatal Class SE19

Amy's course was excellent and her teaching sublime! It was relaxed, fun, very informative and gave us the confidence to deal with whatever would happen.  Not just the standard course material but, more importantly, the extra bits - anecdotes and tit bits.

David, Antenatal Class SE19

I loved Amy's honesty and obvious passion for what she does. She oozes enthusiasm and encouraged us to discuss options available to us so that we could have the best possible birth experience. I am very grateful to Amy as I had been terrified about birth before the classes, but afterwards I was calm.

Claire, Hypnobirthing Course SE27

For my 2nd pregnancy I chose a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean).  My second birth was an amazing empowering hypnobirth. Which left me feeling incredibly elated and emotional. Our daughter was born completely naturally. To anyone considering a hypnobirth, I would say don’t think twice about it, as I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

Penny, Hypnobirthing Course SE23

We did Amy's group hypnobirthing course and we were looking forward to our birth, but our son was breech so a caesarean was the only safe option.  Amy did another session with us, which focused on having a calm caesarean birth.  Before the session I was terrified but on the day of the caesarean, the midwife had to wake us up as we'd both dozed off, we were so relaxed!!  So the birth wasn't as we'd anticipated but it was wonderful!

Lucy, Baby Massage & Reflexology SE19

I did Amy's baby massage course when my son was 8 weeks old.  It was wonderful spending an hour each week in a calm, relaxed environment where I could focus on him.  Amy makes everyone welcome and the strokes we learnt I still use and he absolutely loves massage time!  I also had several reflexology treatments with Amy post birth as I was suffering with a bad back.  The sessions were wonderful and my back improved a few sessions.  She has magic hands!
