YOUR BODY, YOUR BABY, YOUR BIRTH

'We completed the course via zoom during lockdown, as we were unable to attend antinatal appointments or even go to hospital appointments together we found the course super helpful.
It informed us and prepared us for what was to come and the techniques we learned were so helpful. The course was brilliant and Romany was a brilliant teacher.
Would 100% recommend hypnobirthing, we had such a positive experience and we are so thankful to Romany for continuing the course despite everything that was going on in the world!
It was really threat that Romany had experience in both France and the UK and could help us translate our birth plan too'

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 path will be different and with good preparation you're able to navigate it confidently.

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 without 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! And hypnobirthing teachers are the sports psychologists of the birth world!

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 confident 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 overestimated.

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

  • A La Mama special: an introduction to the use of acupressure in labour, known to greatly reduce feelings of pain and strain! 

  • An introduction to all the best evidence based research proven techniques to help you have the best birth for YOU!

  • See what's covered in the full course in FAQ's.

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!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(s). Groups are small (3 couples max) so there's always 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!

The course includes:

  • The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill (in person courses only)

  • 6 Guided hypnosis and relaxation tracks to download

  • La Mama Course Book and lots of great handouts throughout the course to support you

  • My support and availability on the phone and email from the moment you book for as long as you need it.

  • postnatal reunion, a lovely way to meet up again and show off your little bundles :) 

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

BESPOKE ONE TO ONE COURSE

One to one courses are great if you already have little ones as I can work around your schedules, coming to your place of choice at a time that suits. It's also what I would recommend if you or your birth partner have experienced a previous birth that has left you feeling vulnerable. The course will be tailored to you and your needs as a mother and as a family.

You can also come to me!
Please get in touch for more details.
During this course you will receive The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill, Relaxation MP3's, my La Mama course book and some great handouts throughout the course to help support you. And the goodie bag of course!

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.

BESPOKE ONE TO ONE BUMPER COURSE

This is a condensed & stripped down version of the full 10 hour course. Perfect for those that need a refresher, so if you did a course during a previous pregnancy or if you've only just found out about hypnobirthing and don't have the time to do a full course! (if you're 35 weeks +)

The bumper is also for you if you can't make the full course for whatever reason that may be. Just so you know though, this shortened version isn't as complete and comprehensive as the full course. 

This course is done over 6 hours in your home and starts off with a phone consultation so I can prepare the programme accordingly. 

You will receive 3 guided relaxation tracks and some handouts to support your course.

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.
