About the course

Course location & structure

 

Due to current COVID restrictions, all classes take place online via Zoom.  These are live classes that cover the full hypnobirthing course content so you don't miss out on anything even though you're learning remotely.

I currently offer one-to-one (private) classes for pregnant women and their birth partners.  These private classes mean the sessions can be tailored to your specific needs.

The course is divided into 4 sessions which are typically taught over a period of 4 consecutive weeks.  Each session is approximately 2.5 hours long and they are scheduled at mutually convenient dates and time.

What's included?

  • Full hypnobirthing training

  • Hypnobirthing relaxations in MP3 format

  • Hypnobirthing coursebook

  • Ongoing hypnobirthing support via email/telephone on completion of the course

Course fee

The cost of the live, online course is £250 paid in advance via bank transfer. 

 

Payment plans are available if you'd like to pay in instalments.  I also offer concessionary rates for those who need it.

 

Contact me to book your course or to discuss payment options.
