What does the group course cover?
Hypnobirthing plays a huge part in the course, you’ll learn some really simple but powerful, evidence based techniques.
We look at yours and your partner’s mindset, what a huge part it plays in labour and how to feel more confident and positive about birth.
We go through the physiology of birth and what’s happening to your body when you’re in labour and the different stages – you’ll learn techniques to help you work with your body to make your labour more comfortable.
We’re going to talk about pain and why some women find labour really painful and others don’t, I’ll also give you a huge list of pain relief options, coping strategies and comfort measures that you’ve probably not even thought of!
You’ll learn how to stay in control of the things you can control and make informed decisions that are right for you without feeling pressure or fear.
We’ll talk about medical intervention, pain relief, ideal environment for birth without bias or judgement – you don’t need to be planning a pain relief free home birth for this course to make a huge difference. You will find this really helpful if you’ve already decided you want all of the drugs!
We’re talk birth plans, why they’re important and how you can get the most out of yours. After the course you’ll have everything you need to write your own.
You’ll learn evidence based and logical tools and techniques that you can use during pregnancy, while you’re in labour and for motherhood too!
Your birth partners role is something that we’ll also explore in loads of detail – we do the whole course together, your partner is going to be included in everything so that the pressure is off for you, you are in this together – by the end of the course your birth partner is going to know exactly how to support you.
You’ll understand how fear will impact labour and how you can minimise it. You’ll not only enjoy your pregnancy more but you’ll also have a more comfortable labour.
