Welcome to my group hypnobirthing classes in Sandhurst!
My friendly hypnobirthing classes will help you prepare for a more comfortable and calm pregnancy and birth.
I focus on putting parent’s minds at ease and preparing them for the confident birth of their child.
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing uses knowledge of birth physiology and self-hypnosis techniques to make birth more comfortable and more relaxed. Mum and baby benefit in many ways, but crucially in the early bonding period during pregnancy and after birth.
Hypnobirthing uses tools and techniques that are for life. They provide you with a positive mindset and a means to change the way we think.
This can ultimately initiate helpful changes in our lives not just our births.
You can find out more about why you might want to choose hypnobirthing by reading my blog post about it.
Benefits of Hypnobirthing
My group classes in Sandhurst are science-based and have been shown to increase your comfort and relaxation during birth.
You can also improve your chances of a natural birth by using knowledge of birth physiology and hypnobirthing tools and techniques.
A wondeful benefit of hypnobirthing is that it can help you enhance the bond you have with your baby and partner during pregnancy and birth, and beyond!
What’s special about my hypnobirthing classes in Sandhurst?
I offer personal, information-packed hypnobirthing classes, limited to a maximum of 3/4 couples.
My classes also include a huge amount of antenatal knowlegde meaning that additional antenatal classes are not required.
You can have confidence that all your questions will be answered thoroughly by a trained professional with over 5 years of hypnobirthing experience.
What’s more, you can practice the techniques with your partner so that you know that you are doing it right from the start. Life is busy, so it helps to both commit time and focus to this very important phase…together.
Your learning is consolidated quickly so that you can better prepare to …relax…
So why not come and relax into your birth with my hypnobirthing classes in Sandhurst?
How does it compare to an online course?
A face to face hypnobirthing class is ALWAYS going to be better than an online course because you get to know the practitioner and they get to know you.
I can tweak things specifically to suit your particular circumstances and give you answers to your questions there and then.
I am also contactable right up until you give birth so you have that reassurance that there is someone who can help you deal with any last-minute concerns.
It’s a bit like the difference between listening to a download of your favourite band and hearing them LIVE! There is just no comparison to the quality of experience that you get.
I hold group hypnobirthing classes in Sandhurst. I also offer private hypnobirthing classes in many locations in Berkshire, Surrey and North Hampshire.

Don’t just take my word for it…
So many of my clients have been kind enough to give me amazing testimonals and reviews about the hypnobirthing classes in Sandhurst and my other services.
Erika, I’m so glad I met you and booked this course with you. It helped me in so many different ways.
The birth was the one thing I feared most in my life; I now look at it as the most amazing experience a woman can go through, the whole thing is just a miracle!Preet
(Hypnobirthing taught me to)…be calmly excited about the birth rather than fearful, and to trust that my body can birth my baby safely just as it did the first time.
It also helps J feel he has a vital role and what he can do when I’m in the zone, what his responsibilities are.Collette
I feel very lucky to have had the birth I wanted – we were in the Mulberry Centre at Frimley and I got to use the birth pool and had gas & air to help me. It took just 4 and a half hours from established labour!
Thank you for being so supportive and providing a wonderful course – we both think you gave us so much that we used on the run-up & during labour which we are very grateful for as the hypnobirthing really made such a difference to both of us.
The midwives were so receptive to our hypnobirthing and were really pleased with how my labour progressed. We will recommend to others!Sarah
