YOUR BODY, YOUR BABY, YOUR BIRTH

PREPARING YOU FOR THE BIRTH OF YOUR BABY

I strongly believe that your experience as a mum matters and that a ''healthy mum and baby'' is not the best you can expect from this journey but the minimum! Every birth is different, and each birth path has its own potholes but with good preparation you're able to navigate them and work around them. 

Research has shown that giving birth is a little bit like running a marathon (way better though because at the end you get champagne AND a baby). Now do you know anyone who's completed a marathon whitout thorough mental, emotional and physical preparation? Nope, me neither. Nobody would expect anyone to run a full marathon without having trained properly. And no one should be expected to birth a baby without fully understanding how and why, and turning that fear and doubt into confidence and excitement!

A hypnobirthing course is a complete antenatal course, and more. It's a promise to yourself that you are an all powerful and strong being, willing to make this experience not only positive but empowering. With or without a birth partner the course will give you all the tools you need to approach the birth of your baby feeling capable, calm and of course confident. 

It is a logical and evidence based informative course that requires absolutely no leap of faith but will release your fears surrounding childbirth. You will also learn some valuable deep relaxation techniques that are as effective in pregnancy and through labour as they are in everyday life. Birth, just like life, is unpredictable. So we learn to control what we can and understand what we can not, leading to better outcomes for mum & baby. 

I work with various experts such as acupuncturists, midwives and breastfeeding specialists and regularly refresh the content of the course with the latest evidence and research. 

Birth is a labour but it's a labour of love.

With La Mama hypnobirthing courses:

  • You can feel fully prepared, calm and confient whether you are planning a home birth or hospital birth, an elective caesarean or an induction.

  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth.

  • Your baby will arrive to a serene and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.

  • Length of labour is often much shorter with hypnobirthing births.

  • Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births allowing your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.

  • Mamas often recover quicker after a hypnobirthing birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.

  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. A truly shared and loving experience. No need to feel helpless anymore.

  • The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits to your baby cannot be over-estimated.

  • You learn lots of easy techniques for labour and birth and beyond. 

  • Exclusive to my courses: a introduction to the use of acupressure in labour, known to greatly reduce feelings of pain and strain!

As ever I find the best way to experience what hypnobirthing has to offer is by reading what those who have experienced it first hand have to say! You can also come along to one of my taster sessions to get a feel for the course too.

I offer free phone consultations too so you can ask me any questions you may have about the course and its benefits before booking. Please get in touch to arrange a time for me to call you.

GROUP COURSES

LA MAMA group courses are open to mum and her birthing partner. I keep courses to a maximum of 3-4 couples so that there is plenty of time to ask as many questions as you like and I'm able to tailor a lot of the course to you personally. I also like to keep groups small so that you feel as comfortable as possible and it keeps the setting intimate and reassuring. It's also a great opportunity to meet other mamas and their birth partners that are all embarking on the same parenthood boat!
In Bristol these are on average 2.5 hour sessions run over a 4 week programme. Weekday evenings and weekend daytimes are available for you to choose from. The classes are held in my home in Cotham, BS6.
In Ibiza and Chamonix: I will be running a group course in Chamonix over the winter and in Ibiza in Spring 2020, please contact me for details.
The course includes The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill, guided meditation and relaxation tracks to download, my La Mama course book and some great handouts throughout the course to help support you, as well as a super fancy goodie bag!  Follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks of what you can expect..

I always organise a postnatal reunion which is a lovely way to meet up again and show off your little bundles :)

Also included is my ongoing support beyond the course, in the form of a phone call or text/email, you can come to me with questions or if you're in need of some extra support.

I teach the course from my home in Cotham. Parking readily available at all times (yes you read that right, easy parking in Bristol!)

Spaces get booked up fast as they are small groups so please get in touch if you have any questions.
