Expecting

Antenatal Course with Hypnobirthing
Complete In-Person Birth Preparation Package 
Linlithgow, West Lothian

One of the main stressors surrounding birth comes from trying to control something that can be difficult to predict. It is normal to feel apprehensive and maybe overwhelmed by the unknown or scared if you are having to face again what was previously a stressful experience. That is where my hypnobirthing antenatal course comes in! 

Can I tell you a well-kept secret. Birth does not have to be something you dread!

Bea & Partner

"Me & my partner really enjoyed Joy's hypnobirthing focused antenatal class. Everything went according to plan & I couldn't have asked for a better labour. Following this course & using all of Joy's advice truly helped me to achieve my goal! I feel very empowered by the whole experience!"

Does Hypnobirthing Work?

Studies have shown that hypnobirthing techniques can have a positive impact on how you might experience labour and birth. The British Journal of Midwifery reported  that women using hypnobirthing experienced: 

  • Shorter length of labour

  • Lower rate of caesarean birth

  • Lower usage of epidural / other pain management

  • Feeling more confident, relaxed, less fearful, more focussed and in control

  • Labour was easier and more comfortable than expected

  • Birth partners were more involved and more supportive

What Others Say 

Samantha

You made us feel really comfortable with you, encouraged questions & discussion & always had time for anything we wanted to ask. You've also never made anything feel forced or preachy. It's was about letting us know the info so we can make our own choices. 

Lisa

Thanks so much for all your help. Your course was great. We really couldn't have got through everything without it. I have been recommending it to everyone.
