Q: What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is not as weird as it sounds! It’s a completely logical childbirth education program that teaches you what happens in your body during labour and birth, and how deep relaxation techniques can transform the experience.

You will not be in a trance or out of control – quite the opposite. You will be equipped with the knowledge to make informed decisions throughout your birth, and to trust your baby and your body.

Q: Does The Calm Birth School guarantee a pain-free birth?

No, we can’t make claims quite that bold. Birth is a natural physiological event and as such there are many affecting factors that can be out of our control. What we can guarantee is that you will feel more prepared for a better birth, and a positive birth experience.

We will teach you some amazing techniques that will stimulate the production of your body’s natural pain-relieving hormones, but as with anything, the more practice you put in, the more effective these techniques will be on your baby’s birth day.

That said, in our experience, around 76% of the mums we’ve taught have given birth with NO pain relief whatsoever.

Q: When should I start the course?

We recommend starting the course anytime after your 20 week scan. The more time you have to practice our techniques, the better.

Q: Is the course only for first time mums?

Absolutely not. The Calm Birth School home study program is for everyone. Whether it’s your first baby or your fifth, our unique program will equip you with the tools for the empowering birth experience you deserve. In fact, our techniques have been proven to help mums who’ve had previous traumatic birth experiences overcome these to change their birth this time around.

Q: What are the benefits of hypnobirthing as a home study program?

A lot of women will find hypnobirthing classes near them, and we both love teaching women face-to-face and have been doing so for a number of years. However, in this time we’ve had lots of enquiries from all around the world from women who can’t find a practitioner near them, or women who don’t have the time to travel to a weekly class. We have responded to this need with The Calm Birth School home study program, by bringing our tried and tested techniques to you, so that you can enjoy the benefits of hypnobirthing in a way that suits your lifestyle and location.
