FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?
Hypnobirthing is a unique form of childbirth education that focuses on a natural and gentle approach to birth. It is about developing techniques that can be used by both the birthing woman and her support person to promote calm, positive and empowered experiences, whichever turn your birthing journey takes.
The philosophy behind hypnobirthing is really quite simple: When you and your support people are united and able to positively approach birth with sound knowledge and tools, your birthing journey can be a positive and empowering experience.

WHEN SHOULD I ATTEND THE COURSE?
Anytime! However, the ‘ideal time’ is between 20 and 30 weeks gestation. This gives you plenty of time to practice all the techniques in the lead up to your birth.
Don’t worry if you are already beyond this guideline, plenty of hypno mum’s have successfully completed the course at a later gestation. Contact us to see what we can do for you.
