Exploring childbirth education can be a daunting task. Below are some of our frequently asked questions that should hopefully answer most of your queries or concerns.
For all non-yoga classes, canceling your reservation 8 or more days in advance results in a 100% refund, minus a $50 administration fee. Canceling 0-7 days in advance results in no refund, although you may transfer your registration to a future offering of the same class, if available.
The short answer is anytime from 20 weeks pregant. The longer answer is that it may depend on your learning style. Many couples choose to do the course around 20 weeks pregnant so they have as much time as possible to practice the techniques. They may then choose to come to any of the classes running between when they finish and their baby being born to refresh their knowledge. We offer this for free.
Other couples may like to do the course closer to their due date so all the knowledge is fresh in their mind. Or they may only find out about HypnoBirthing later in pregnancy. This is fine too and we’ve taught many couples successfully later in pregnancy. Of course there can be the risk of baby coming before the course has finished so in these cases, sometimes a private course which can be scheduled around your due date is a better option.
It’s never too early or too late to learn HypnoBirthing.
HypnoBirthing is for anyone wanting a positive birth. We teach women who are petrified of birth all the way through to women who are excited about birth but want some skills and techniques to use.
It doesn’t matter where you are having your baby – a private hospital with an obstetrician, a public hospital with a midwife or a home birth, HypnoBirthing works anywhere. We are experienced with VBAC’s, multiples and planned c-sections too.
Most birth educators will tell you about their special seal they’ve been given when they certified and what makes their method the best.
We have slightly different advice.
I have been teaching HypnoBirthing since 2017 and I get great results, pride myself on a high level of customer service and are busy enough to run regular courses.
100% we would recommend that they come. It’s such an amazing opportunity for them to learn 25 pain-relieving techniques to support you through your labor. They get a huge insight into the physical and emotional process of labor. We can guarantee they will be confident and informed after the course. But not all partner’s want to come and not all partner are available. This is not ideal but we can still work with whatever situation you are in. It’s certainly not a reason to miss out on this phenomenal learning experience, just because your partner can’t or doesn’t want to do it.
HypnoBirthing: Our course is 12.5 hours long. We teach this over 5 sessions, each 2.5 hours long. It’s at the longer side of birth education but we have used this tried and tested method over many years and know that it works.
We don’t run long sessions as we believe that this much information needs to be taken in slowly so you can remember it and have time to master the techniques taught before the next session.
This being said, sometimes it’s impossible to attend our course of an evening. If we get enough interested (2+ couples) we are happy to run a weekend option. Conditions do apply so please get in contact if you are interested in this option.
Spinning Babies: One live class meeting for 2 hours. With the Guided Spinning Babies Parent Class you have access to the downloaded video forever.
HypnoMothering: One class meeting for 2.5-3 hours
It’s the name HypnoBirthing right? Sounds weird? I get it! The vast majority of the course content is based in science and backed up by evidence and studies. There are some other elements to the course like visualisations, affirmations and the law of attraction which might seem a little out there to some but it’s all pretty tame. And the awesome thing is, if you don’t like any part of the course, you don’t have to practice it because there are so are so many other techniques.
