Hypnobirthing for Active Birth – A Weekend Course

Taught by Janet Balaskas and Jill Benjoya Miller

We’ll always be grateful for the positive experience we had on the course and during the birth. The midwife told me she was amazed that I was so calm and in control. I tell everyone that my birth was so straightforward  thanks to Active Birth and Hypnobirthing – the ultimate combination!

About the Course:  This is our signature antenatal course, offering the ultimate birth preparation.  You will get a complete Hypnobirthing course especially created to combine with Active Birth so that you get all the extraordinary benefits of both – a unique and empowering combination. It will leave you confident, relaxed, prepared and inspired.

There are 4 sessions Saturday and Sunday all day, including a Wise Woman session to help you to manage special circumstances and to make wise decisions and choices. It’s the most comprehensive birth preparation course you will find.

This is such a complete and up-to-date course that we are confident you do not need anything else to be fully informed and prepared for your birth. It is very experiential, so you will be learning practically with your body about positions, touch, deep relaxation, breathing and partner work. You will acquire amazing inner tools to help you, your partner and your baby to have a wonderful and positive experience.

This course very beneficial for couples to attend together, but is also good to attend on your own and in this case you will  be partnered by the teacher or another person attending on her own.

Private Session with Janet: £450 (single or couple as a 4 hour alternative to the course):  The session will be tailor made to your requirements and can include Active Birth or Hypnobirthing or both.  You will be given a handout and the option to purchase the Wise Hippo Hypnobirthing manual on the day (Cost £25  – includes the manual and 5 downloadable MP3’s).

Private sessions as a refresher or consultation: £110 per hour as required.

Skype sessions

Private sessions with Janet can also be held on Skype by arrangement, if you are unable to attend in person. This can work very successfully from anywhere with internet. 2 hour sessions are recommended and you will need a quiet undisturbed place. Email for more details.

Materials for the Weekend Course: You will be sent a Hypnobirthing Manual in the post with 5 relaxation and hypnobirthing scripts in the form of downloadable MP3’s. On the day you will receive Janet’s  Preparing for Active Birth Handbook written especially for the course, which is great follow on reading.

The hypnobirthing resources are from the Wise Hippo Programme which works very well with Active Birth. We will work with these throughout the course and then you can continue ongoingly at home. Inspirational films will be shown throughout this course which show mothers giving birth  combining upright positions with hypnobirthing techniques.
