About

This is the course for you if you're pregnant and know there's something more than the tired old narrative that birth has to be awful. Come and learn how your body was made to do this, how your baby knows when and how to be born and all of the incredible ways that we can reclaim the power of birthing our babies. I'll teach you the practicalities behind birth, load up your toolbox with hypnobirthing techniques, help you eliminate any fears, and clue you up on your birth rights. This is a full antenatal education covering all bases, to ensure you head in to birth feeling confident, well supported and prepared for your dream birth. A mixture of video content in every section plus audios, downloadable fact sheets, journalling prompts and visual imagery for you to work through at your own pace, this course is enjoyable, interactive and might just blow your mind a little.
