Hypnobirthing classes in the comfort of your own home.
Hello and welcome to Stirling Hypnobirthing Mum. Here you will find details about the hypnobirthing classes I offer.
I offer courses in the comfort of your own home throughout the Stirling and Falkirk areas, and will travel to your home at a time that suits you.
I teach hypnobirthing using The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme. The course focuses on birth being a normal and natural even and what you will be learning will help you achieve the type of birth you want. It is a complete antenatal education programme that supports each individual woman and her birthing partner to prepare for their baby's birth in a way that feels right for them.
The main focus of the course is to teach you how to relax, breath and trust your body to know what to do instinctively. I will provide you with the skills and knowledge to enable you to trust your instincts in order to achieve the right birth on the day.
Giving birth will probably be one of the most profound events in your life.
During pregnancy, along with growing a healthy baby, your body is obviously preparing itself for birth...but this shouldn't be the only preparation. It is important for you to prepare emotionally and practically for the arrival of your baby too.
Considering what your birth may be like helps you and your birth partner to make your own plans and preparations, ensuring that you are not only clear about what kind of birth you want, but also how to cope with any changes that may take place. Whilst it makes sense to focus on the birth you want, sometimes birth doesn't go exactly as planned, which is why it is important to know that no matter what turn your birthing takes, you can have the right birth on the day. The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme will help you prepare for a natural birth, a caesarean birth, an assisted birth, an induced birth, a twin (or more!) birth, a VBAC birth, a breech birth and a lotus birth. The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme will help you prepare for whichever birth you choose, or whichever turn your birthing takes, helping you to have the right birth on the day.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a complete 10 hour programme that runs as 4 x 2.5 hour classes. A workbook and 5 x mp3s are provided to our expectant Clients to support their practice at home.
What is taught in each class is shown below.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme can be attended ideally between 20-34 weeks of pregnancy allowing plenty of time for practice. Don't worry if you are later in pregnancy, the course can be run over a shorter period of time and you will still be able to use the techniques effectively.
The cost of the course is £300 per couple and this includes all course materials.
The Relax, Breathe & Birth session is a 2hr information session designed to provide relaxation tools for birth. .
The session is intended as an introduction to the full Wise Hippo Birthing Programme, but it will provide you with some very useful breathing and relaxation techniques to keep you calm and relaxed during your labour and birth.
The cost of the course is £25. If you decide to book the full Wise Hippo Birthing Programme the cost of this session will be deducted from the full course fee.
I am a mum of three young children.
Two of my children were born using hypnobirthing techniques and they were both amazing experiences that changed my outlook about birth. After experiencing such wonderful births I decided that I would like to teach hypnobirthing to other mums-to-be.
