Frequently Asked Questions

  • When’s a good time to do the course?
    It’s recommended to complete the course by 32 weeks, however you are welcome at any stage of your pregnancy, right up to your baby’s due time, it really is never too late! Obviously the earlier you register for a course the longer you have to enjoy the hub benefits. Hypnobirthing and mindfulness become more powerful with regular practice, so starting sooner rather than later can really help too.
  • Do you charge for travel/parking?
    I do not charge for travel beyond 30minutes car journey, or 45 public transport. I do charge for parking costs.
  • Do I need to prepare anyting ?
    No, just a comfy space with a drink, and a pen if you want to make notes.
  • I’m planning a natural birth but have been advised I may have to have a Caesarean Section, which course should I do?
    We recommend the all births course, as this will provide you with all that you need to prepare for a physiological birth but also includes what happens during an abdominal birth (caesarean section) so you will learn about both types of birth.
  • Could I do a private course with a pregnant friend?
    Yes, absolutely! Should you have a pregnant friend/relative who also wants to do the course I can come to one of your homes (or do the course online via Zoom) and run a private course at a discount.
  • What if I pay for a course and my baby arrives before the course has started/finished?
    If your baby is born prior to starting the course you will receive a part refund.
  • Can my partner or someone else attend with me?
    Most definitely, partners are encouraged to attend! The cost of the course is for a pregnant mum/person and one birth partner, whoever that may be for you.
  • Can I do a course on my own?
    Yes, we welcome all pregnant mums and birthing people.
  • Do you offer a short or condensed course?
    Yes, please contact me if you’re looking for a shorter or more bespoke course.
  • I’m not sure Hypnobirthing is for me but I would like to know more.
    Either get in contact for a chat or you can watch a taster session here –Taster Session.
  • I want an epidural, can I still use the relaxation techniques?
    Most definitely. Hypnobirthing really is for all birth preferences and situations. Hypnobirthing is about understanding your body and learning how different choices, including pain relief, have pros and considerations so you can use or avoid them in the best way possible for you.
  • Do you provide Doula services?
    Yes! Please find out more here
  • Do I need to do another Antenatal course as well?
    No you don’t need to if you didn’t want to, the course provides everything you need to know about preparing for birth. However, some parents either choose to enhance a standard antenatal course with a hypnobirthing course and find the cross-overs areas a really great recap, and some parents find hypnobirthing later on in their pregnancy and so end up doing two courses.
  • I was hoping to do a Hypnobirthing course but I can’t afford the classes.
    I can offer payments plan if needed.
  • Can we meet you before committing to the course?
    This may be possible yes, and would depend on how close you are to SM4 6RB, or happy to meet over Zoom.
