Teaching you and your birth partner techniques for a calm, gentle and positive birth experience
The Birthgently hypnobirthing course offers you an intelligent and intuitive approach to pregnancy and birth. Learn simple and effective self-hypnosis, relaxation, breathing, visualisation and massage techniques to help you and your birth partner prepare for labour and birth.
The Birthgently approach is effective because it recognises and positively uses your unique experience of pregnancy and birth. The course is taught in a way that enables you and your birth partner to easily individualise and personalise the techniques, making them even more powerful. Birthgently is not a one-size-fits-all hypnobirthing course.
As well as learning all the essential components of hypnobirthing and up-to-date techniques, the Birthgently course helps you and your partner to work through any fears and anxieties you may have. Feeling positive and confident about labour and birth is one of the keys to having a calmer, safer, gentler birth.
You will discover how to access your mind and body's powerful inner resources and approach the birth of your baby with confidence and joy.
The Birthgently course is a good complement to NCT and NHS antenatal classes.
"Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life."
