Hypnobirthing Classes: What to Expect

Sharing Proven Techniques for a Positive Labour & Delivery

One of the most important questions to address for anyone interested in learning about hypnobirthing is: “Will I be hypnotised if I attend a hypnobirthing class?” Let me be clear: No, you will not!

If you sign up for one of my hypnobirthing classes, you will not be hypnotised. No one is going to wave a pocket watch in front of your face, sending you to a slumber in which you do outrageous things like eating an onion whilst thinking it’s an orange!

Hypnosis v. Hypotherapy

Traditional ideas of hypnosis align with what is known as stage hypnosis. However, when hypnosis is associated with different forms of therapy, a different outcome is expected. Think of stage hypnosis as entertainment and hypnotherapy, including hypnobirthing, as a means of reaching personal goals — and often change someone’s long-term experiences throughout their lives.

Hypnobirthing is a methodology that incorporates deep breathing, relaxation, and visualisation to reduce pain during childbirth. Whilst some mothers are able to achieve a state of deep relaxation during birth, this is quite different from being “hypnotised.” This approach is more focused on mindfulness and meditation to effectively manage stress hormones — and filter out distractions.

What Happens in a Hypnobirthing Class?

My hypnobirthing classes are taught via Zoom either privately as 1:1 sessions or in small, welcoming groups. You can expect to connect with me and other like-minded parents within a friendly, safe environment from the comfort of your own home.

A complete, end-to-end Mind and Body Birthing course consists of four (4) 2.5-hour sessions. And, be rest assured, there will be no awkward ice-breaker games in any of my classes! Everything I teach is there to help you feel fully prepared, supported, and even excited about giving birth.

Expect up-to-date evidence-based birth information, practical tools and techniques for a better birth, and time to ask any questions you might have along the way. As an impassioned certified Hypnobirthing Coach,I want you to come away from my course empowered with knowledge and supported with practical tools and techniques.

After completing a full course, you will learn the following:

  • All births have the potential to be positive; whether you choose to birth at home, in a midwife-led unit or in a hospital, whether you give birth naturally, are induced or have a caesarean

  • My hypnobirthing classes are for everyone and every type of birth

  • The mind and body are connected and how to utilise this knowledge for a more efficient and comfortable birth

  • Birth is a physiological process; You will learn how your body is designed on both a muscular and chemical level to birth your baby naturally

  • Breathing and relaxation techniques for all stages of labour for a calmer, easier birth

  • How to use your B.R.A.I.N. to ask empowering questions so you can make factual decisions that feel right for you and your baby

  • Ways for your birth partner to fully support you during birth

I am very passionate about the hypnobirthing method because it works — and I honestly can’t imagine a better birth education. Sign up to one of my FREE taster sessions to get a better sense of what to expect in one of my hypnobirthing classes.. When you sign up, I’ll also send you a 100% customisable birth plan template along with a fully completed sample copy to get you going. I look forward to working with you!


Mind and Body Birthing offers accessible hypnobirthing courses to help you feel calm and confident as you prepare for birth as a positive and empowering experience.
