Ohhhhh LOOK at these …… a new batch of books ready to dish out this week!
Hypnobirthing is everywhere now, and its great that it is …. It means there is choice! YOU have a choice on the course you book onto.
But NOT ALL HPNOBIRTHING IS THE SAME!!
Variety is the spice of life they say… and my course definitely offers that. Where do I start…??
The Calm Birth School Book
Straight talking, easy to read and modern.
Private courses are 10 – 12 hours long and are split over 2- 3 sessions. Group courses are split over 2 days 11am – 5pm in Southport or over 3 sessions 6:30pm – 9:30pm in Crosby, Liverpool. This means you get MORE time learning than a course which is 4 sessions of 1 or 2 hours each! I also chuck in a sessions of pregnancy relaxation for mummies to be to get practicing.
Supporting information/ parent packs
I don’t give you a folder which is basically the book but spiral bound! When you start the course you get an empty folder. As we go through the course and discuss the topics you get various hand-outs, flow charts, pictures and info graphics to help you understand and learn as we go along. Over time I have learnt that the ‘parent packs’ may look good BUT rarely get opened and are not easy to follow on the big day if you want to look something up. That’s why I do what I do … don’t worry the content isn’t compromised I just think this is works better for me and my couples.
This isn’t just a ‘Hypnobirthing Course’. This is an ‘Empowered Bumps Hypnobirthing Course’. This means to content is unbiased and delivered in a way that is discussion based … not me talking AT you with a projector. Of course it includes all the things you would expect to get in a standard course BUT with loads of extras thrown in too like pregnancy yoga, aromatherapy for childbirth and breastfeeding. I want to you feel prepared, pumped and empowered however birth turns out.
Private courses are delivered in your own homes at times to suit you. Group courses take place in the BEAUTIFUL Massage Therapy Rooms by Aimee in Southport or at the stunning Bumble Bee Newborn Photography Studio in Crosby,Liverpool. I want you to be as relaxed as possible and bond with other couples which is why I only have a max of 4 couples on a course. I don’t have you sitting on chairs all day either… we mix it up between chairs, yoga mats, birth balls AND a birth pool! YEP that’s right .. a birth pool!
Where do I start? I’m talking about Rebozo, a method using a Mexican scarf to help raise comfort levels in labour (it’s really hands on and birth partners LOVE it). Aromatherapy for childbirth. Massage, pregnancy yoga (on group courses I have a VERY experienced pregnancy yoga teacher who comes in to show you additional breathing, some movements to make you more comfy in pregnancy and birth positions) and I bring my birth pool. You also get access to client only areas on the website with editable birth plans, links and discounts as well as a pregnancy relaxation session. In addition you also get a lovely welcome gift and a session of baby massage, stretch and play for when your baby has arrived.
So if you are after something with personality, discussions and empowering content maybe this course is for you??
Group courses are on every month in Southport and Liverpool, private courses at times to suit you across Merseyside and Lancashire.
