Hypnobirthing for Active Birth Online Course with Janet Balaskas

Discover the power of Hypnobirthing in the comfort and intimacy of your own home!

Taught by Janet Balaskas live online, and delivered live to your living room!

The course includes one Sunday Session plus four weekly Practice Sessions starting the Monday evening after the Course.

Janet is renowned for her unique way of teaching Hypnobirthing which is always applied to the wisdom of  Active Birth. 

In your first session you said ‘remember, your body is very clever and knows how to give birth, and your baby will know how to birth too’ and it brought me to tears (of relief!) then and there in the class!

Home is the ideal place to learn and practise the art of deep relaxation with simple self hypnosis. This sets thescene, and prepares you for when your labour starts for real. With this course your subconscious mind and body memory are prepared simultaneously to slip effortlessly into the natural change of consciousness that occurs during labour. With plenty of practise, you can discover your own inner resources to transform pain into pleasure and anxiety into confidence.

This course is very beneficial when followed as a couple and it is also very valuable for those who join solo.

How the course is structured

This course will start with a four hour Zoom session –  Introduction to Hypnobirthing

Then, starting on the Monday night after the first session, you will have access to four of Janet’s Online HypnoBirthing Practice Sessions. These are inclusive in the cost of the course.

You will be able to sign up and book ongoingly for more of these after that, up until your due date at £10 per session .

HypnoBirthing Practise Sessions will be held on Monday evenings from 7.00 – 8.30pm.


What you need

Please set up your room as you would in early labour – with mat or mats on the floor plenty of cushions or pillows, an inflated birth ball (65cms), a nearby wall surface you can lean on. A sofa, dining or kitchen chair and counter tops will provide plenty of support. Arrange the mats so they are visible on your screen and parallel to your device.

About Janet

Janet’s approach to Hypnobirthing is unique and includes her experience over four  decades as an internationally renowned antenatal teacher and the founder of Active Birth and Pregnancy Yoga in the 1980’s. Her wisdom, experience and knowledge is woven into her teaching of Hypnobirthing as she guides you to deepen into the profound relaxation  that is so useful as you prepare for an easier, calmer and more relaxed birth.

Janet trained with Marie Mongan the founder of Hypnbirthing, and now uses the Wise Hippo materials as they are designed to be compatible with Active Birth. Her approach however, is her own and her live presence as the teacher, adds a special dimension to the work you will do together in these classes.

Course Materials

When you book this course, you will be sent a Wise Hippo manual in the post, which, if time allows, you are recommended to read before the course begins. The manual includes a link to five downloadable MP3’s with the guided relaxations, visualisations and affirmations you will encounter on the course and which you will be able to keep practicing afterwards in the run up to the birth of your baby.

You will also be sent Janet’s Handout Pack by email with your booking confirmation.
