Hypnobirthing classes and workshops in reading, berkshire

You’re pregnant and looking for birth preparation that helps you feel calm and confident about childbirth?

I run one to one and group hypnobirthing classes and workshops that in Reading, Berkshire.

Hypnobirthing is the name given to a set of tools and techniques that help you feel calmer and more confident about labour and birth. It’s not a method; it’s the process of transforming your mindset about childbirth. I’m pretty sure that if you’re here, you know the important part our mindset plays in whatever we want to achieve.

Giving birth to your baby is one of the most transformative and transcendental events in your life, and being able to live this experience with calm and confidence, is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself and your family.

The ‘hypno’ bit comes form hypnosis. Yes, hypnosis. But, nothing to be scared of. Oftentimes, the ideas we can have about hypnosis are hugely misleading and confusing. No one is going to hypnotize you, nor you’re going to give birth in a trance state.

We’ll be working with the mind-body connection and different tools like breathing techniques, guided relaxations, and anchors. to name a few, so that you can:

All the hypnosis involved here, are self-hypnosis tools, so you’re in control at all times. In any case, rest assured that hypnosis is a well-known state of your mind, you’re actually going naturally into hypnosis at least twice per day (when you’re about to fall asleep and about to wake up).

Every tool and technique works differently for each person, and you may feel more drawn up to some, and not so much to others. No worries, I’ve got you covered, and we’ll work on those that truly make a difference for you or practice them in different ways so that you can easily fit them into your practice.

Generally speaking we’ll be practicing:

So, I’ve been a hypnobirthing teacher since 2018 and have undertaken several trainings in this field, as I find it incredibly fascinating and hugely transformative for those who really commit to the practice. I’ve taught very varied families with different backgrounds and approaches to childbirth.

Since 2020 I train other birth professionals, such as midwifes, doulas and perinatal psychologists, to become hypnobirthing teachers, in Spanish (my mother tongue). 

And… I’ve published a book (in Spanish)! Which is a hugely exciting venture, as it’s now on its way to a revised second edition!

So, you can choose between doing a complete hypnobirthing birth preparation course or a hypnobirthing workshop:

If you’re looking for group hypnobirthing classes, look here.

Hypnobirthing birth preparation

This is a full birth preparation course, which consists of 10h, usually spread along 4x 2.5h long sessions.

During these sessions we’ll work deeply on all the tools and techniques, ensuring you’re ready for a good commited practice. We’ll also work on your specific worries and/or fears, with tools and evidence based information, so that they no longer bother you.

The hypnobirthing workshop

You may have booked your birth preparation somewhere else, perhaps signed up for an NCT class, but you’ve heard about hypnobirthing and all its benefits and you really want to add that ‘hypno’ bit to your preparation. Or perhaps you don’t have the time for a full course.

This hypnobirthing workshop is your perfect solution! It consists of 4h, usually spread along 2x 2h long sessions.

You may be looking for a hypnobirthing refresher if this is not your first birth or you may be wanting a fully bespoke and tailored programme for you.

I totally get it, this is such an special time and it can all be so different for everyone.

I’ve shown you my two most popular packages, but I’m always happy to arrange something uniquely tailored to you. Simply get in in touch and we’ll take it from there.

The Calm Caesarean Workshop is aimed at anyone having an Elective/Planned Caesarean Birth.  You may have already attended a Hypnobirthing Class and you were planning to birth vaginally, but your circumstances have now changed. Or you are electing to have a caesarean birth for personal choice or a medical reason, then this workshop is for you.
