'Empower My Birth'HYPNOBIRTHING PLUS
I WANT TO TAKE YOU FROM BRICKING IT TO FEELING LIKE SUPER WOMAN!!
I know what you are thinking. Feeling like superwoman is so far removed from how you have seen people give birth in the TV or maybe even how it was last time. I get it, I do! We are almost brainwashed from such a young age to believe that birth is something we have to ‘endure’ to get our baby at the end. I am here to tell you, you have options, you have rights and you can totally do this, feeling supported, strong and really freaking good… however it happens!
THEY SAY KNOWEDGE IS POWER, THEY ARE NOT WRONG!
It is totally possible to transform how you feel about having a baby. Knowledge is POWER. Think about it, you wouldn't book a holiday or a wedding without researching your options. You would prepare for an exam or big job interview, wouldn't you. Birth is a life changing event, knowing your stuff is vital.
Now, I appreciate the name ‘Hypnobirthing’ can sound a little woo and it may even put some partners off thinking its all hippy, chanting and only to do with relaxation and breathing, BUT it’s not as crazy as the name sounds at all. It’s based on the science about how your body works, your rights and options (because you have them and COVID has not changed that!), as well as showing you tools to enable you to produce the good stuff (like your own natural pain relief).
For us, this is not about letting go of the control or only planning for your 'dreamboat birth', this is about putting you in the driving seat, however it goes.
SO, HOW CAN YOU EMPOWER YOUR BIRTH?
There are a few different ways of learning with us:
Small group courses at The Hart Space, our own stunning studio in Southport. In Crosby at the super lovely Baby Bears Den or at Cedar Farm in Ormskirk. Zoom group courses are also available.
Privately in your own home, we cover Merseyside, Lancashire and North/ West Manchester in person or online through zoom.
All our courses include ongoing support and loads of additional content, such as a Mindful Breastfeeding Workshop & Introduction to Baby Massage, as well as all our jam packed client hub.
