Welcome to a better birth...
Welcome to The Hampshire Birthing Company. My name is Susanna and I teach fluff-free Hypnobirthing and really useful Birth Prep - without the ‘woo’.
My Hypnobirthing courses are a complete antenatal education, created to give expectant parents’ confidence, reassurance, techniques, and knowledge to support a calm and empowering birth, and an enjoyable passage to parenthood.
I’m a mum of two with a rural background, who first thought Hypnobirthing sounded like a load of hippie nonsense. Following a chaotic and out of control first birth, I conceded to give Hypnobirthing a try for my second birth. I’m now a Hypnobirthing teacher, so it’s safe to assume I’m converted, as is my, previously very sceptical, husband.
I teach Hypnobirthing courses over four sessions, which can be enjoyed as part of a group or on a private basis, online or in person. Whilst building a personalised toolkit to achieve a more comfortable labour and birth, you will gain an in depth understanding of the physiology of birth, learn how to let go of negative preconceptions and feelings of fear surrounding childbirth, and develop a comprehensive understanding of your birth choices.
My mission is to ensure that the benefits of Hypnobirthing are made clear and available to everyone, from the most sceptical to the enthusiastic, from the anxious to the confident and to those who have experienced previous trauma and would like to find a new path to a better birth. Whether you're aiming for a natural home-birth or are planning an elective C-section, The Hampshire Birthing Company Hypnobirthing course will empower you to make decisions that are right for you and your baby, enabling you to look forward to and enjoy a calm, controlled and informed journey.
Group Hypnobirthing Classes are held near Alton just south of Basingstoke, while Private Hypnobirthing Classes are available in the comfort of your own home or mine. Online courses are also available as required and requested.
Hypnobirthing is designed to help release fear, build confidence and assist you in experiencing the best pregnancy and birth for you and your baby, comfortably gently and calmly.
Discovering Hypnobirthing during my second pregnancy completely changed my perception and experience of birth to the extent I decided to train as a Hypnobirthing practitioner.
Are you going to make me cluck like a chicken?
Isn't this sort of thing just for hippies?
Does this guarantee a pain free birth?
What's in it for my partner?
"The four week course has been absolutely amazing and deeply enlightening. We both left feeling far calmer about what's ahead and excited for the whole process. "
