Transform pain into pleasure and anxiety into confidence! Home is the ideal place to learn Hypnobirthing. This sets the scene, for when your labour starts for real. Janet will guide you so that your subconscious mind and body memory are prepared simultaneously for the natural change of consciousness that occurs during labour.

How the course is structured

This course will start with a Sunday 4 hour online session –  Introduction to Hypnobirthing

This will be followed by four  Online HypnoBirthing Practice Sessions. These are inclusive in the cost of the course.

The four HypnoBirthing Practise Sessions are held on Tuesday 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 Hypnobirthing, 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.

You will also be signed up to the Wise Hippo Hub which has a wealth of videos and resources you can access.
