The HypnoBirthing® course is an amazingly well designed curriculum which prepares pregnant women and their partners to feel ready for birthing and parenting. The techniques are fun to learn and to teach. The philosophy is simple: put everything you thought about birth aside, birth is the first face to face meeting between parents and baby, make that meeting as gentle and joyful as possible. Even the most fearful or sceptical participants come away from classes feeling inspired and more confident.
