FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: When in pregnancy should I do the course?
A: Any time that is convenient for you. Most people attend the course from their second trimester onwards. It's great to do have time to practise what you have learnt. But if you're later in pregnancy get in touch and we can plan something that's personalised to your circumstances!
Q: I don't have a partner, can I still come?
A: Absolutely! You can come alone or you can bring a friend or family member as support. A 'birthing partner' can be anyone. Our courses empower your birthing partner by learning how to support you in pregnancy, birth and beyond
Q: What if I dont want or don't have a 'natural' birth? Will Hypnobirthing still be beneficial?
A: Absolutely! Hypnobirthing isn't about having your 'perfect birth', its about empowerment with knowledge and having a positive birth experience no matter what happens on the day. Anyway every birth is 'natural' and in my eyes you are a superhuman however you birth your baby! You will learn how to remain calm and relaxed in any circumstance. I have seen Hypnobirthing benefit parents in all kinds of births: planned home births, births in a midwifery led unit, medicalised births in a consultant led unit and planned and unplanned caesarean sections.
Q: How long is the course?
A: The full Hypnobirthing course is approximately 9 hours of teaching over 2-4 sessions taught either online (via Zoom) or face to face (in your own home or my workspace in Hertford). We then book in a 1 hour catch up for around your 'due time' to refresh and go over anything you like.
Take a look at our Refresher course if you've previously attended a Hypnobirthing course. We also provide non-Hypnobirthing Birth and Baby Preparation Classes (Birth & Baby Basics)- take a look on our courses page.
If you can't see what you're looking for and want something more bespoke- get in touch and we can tailor a course to fit you perfectly.
Please get in touch if you have any questions at all! I'm always happy for a chat :)
