These comprehensive natural birthing classes run over five weeks at Birthcare. HypnoBirthing teach parents specific breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques to support them in having a more enjoyable and rewarding birthing experience. Mothers learn to trust in their bodies ability to give birth naturally and gently.


A core aspect to achieving a relaxed state and experiencing reduced levels of pain is removing all fears about birthing and parenting. HypnoBirthing provides a supportive environment to ask questions and there are several opportunities to release fears through guided sessions within the classes.
