"I spent most of my first day as a mother crying with gratitude, and I can't tell you how much of our experience is thanks to you Joey! I felt brave and calm (and stretchy!) and optimistic, and can't believe how wonderfully lucky we are.”

Anna, First Time Mum



 Empowered birthing in Bristol

Would you like a calm, empowered, positive birth experience?

This complete birth preparation course involves the hypnobirthing breathing

and visualisation techniques, but it is so much more than that…

What will I learn in a Hypnorbirthing course? 

  • Physiology of birth – how to grow and birth a baby, calmly and comfortably

  • Breathing techniques to work with your birthing muscles to birth your baby more efficiently

  • Psychology of birth – how the mind triggers production of hormones that can help or hinder your birth experience

  • Techniques to reduce fear associated with childbirth so you can get excited about your birth

  • Use of positive affirmations and language

  • How to approach your birth as a team, connecting as a couple and parents-to-be. Empower your birth partner so they can be your support and advocate

  • What to ask medical professionals, when to ask them and when to let them take the lead

  • Knowledge, wisdom and confidence to make informed birth choices ensuring you remain calm and in control

  • How to create a birth proposal designed for a positive birth experience

A calm gentle birth for you, means a calm, gentle birth for your baby .  . . what could be more important than that?




  • 95% of labour pain is a result of tension and fear. Hypnobirthing teaches you to break that fear-tension cycle allowing you to work with your body to open and soften

  • 20% more likely to have a natural birth

  • Our Mamas say they have shorter births with considerably less or no need for pain relief during the birthing process

  • Increased likelihood of having calm, content, breastfeeding ‘Hypno-babies’ as a result of an unmedicated birth

  • The opportunity for your birth partner to support you during your pregnancy, birth and early days of parent-hood

  • Work with your body, not against it for a calm, controlled birth

  • Quicker recovery post-birth for you to be the best Mama you can be
