Hypnobirthing Course

The Hypnobirthing & Confident Birth Course

Previously The Hypnobirthing & Antenatal Course - Why the name change?

While 'Antenatal' refers to the period before meeting your baby, a lot of people hear the term 'Antenatal Course' and associate that with a combination of birth preparation AND postnatal care for Mum and Baby, To clarify, The Hampshire Birthing Company's course content, we've changed the name to 'The Hypnobirthing and Confident Birth Course' (without changing the contents) to emphasise the in-depth nature of the birth preparation included in the course, compared to the lighter coverage many of the broader pre and postnatal 'Antenatal Courses' may offer. 

How does the Hypnobirthing & Confident Birth Course work?

The Hypnobirthing & Confident Birth course is divided into four sessions each of which last approximately 2.5 - 3 hours, taught over four weeknight evenings or two weekend days.

You can join a scheduled group course held in or near Alton in North Hampshire or book a private, one-to-one course in the comfort of my or your home.
