Group Hypnobirthing Course in St Margarets

Looking for a group hypnobirthing course in St Margarets?

Hypnobirthing Mumma is delighted to be offering a group Hypnobirthing course in St Margarets, Twickenham. The course will be held in the heart of St Margarets at Gymboree. I spent many great mornings here whilst on maternity leave at Gymboree which my very own Hypnobaby loved!

Course dates and times

The course will be held over 7.5 hours from 19.00 – 21.30 on Thursday evenings.

April Course – Thursday 12th, 19th & 26th April 2018.

June Course – Thursday 7th, 14th & 21st June 2018.

I don’t overfill courses as I want everybody to be able to ask questions and fully immerse themselves in hypnobirthing. To ensure this is the case I only teach a maximum of five couples per course. This group size allows me to get to know you all individually.

The cost is £295 per couple.

What would I get out of a group Hypnobirthing class?

Joining this group hypnobirthing course in St Margarets is a great way to not only to learn all about hypnobirthing but also to meet other local expectant parents in the area. I often meet expectant parents who may be new to the area who want to meet other parents to be in the area. A group course offers you the opportunity to meet friendly faces who share the same outlook on birth as you do.

An environment where I encourage you to share your thoughts around birth with like-minded people. Many of which have heard about the benefits of hypnobirthing for Mum, Dad and baby and want to learn as much as possible.

As a class I encourage us all to meet up once all the babies have arrived for a Postnatal Reunion.  This is held during the daytime in the week. An opportunity for mum, baby and of course Dad if he is free to meet and talk about your experiences of birth and early parenting.

The benefits of Hypnobirthing

  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes women refer to their birth being pain free.
  • Length of labour is often much shorter with hypnobirthing births.
  • The need for drugs and intervention is reduced, which allows your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.
  • Your baby will arrive to a serene and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.
  • Mums often bounce back quicker after a Hypnobirthing birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.
  • Hypnobirthing babies tend to show less distress during birth, are often very alert after birth and calmer babies.
  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. A truly shared and loving experience.

Hypnobirthing & Yoga Birth Preparation Workshop

Hypnobirthing courses in Richmond

Are you thinking about hypnobirthing or pregnancy yoga? Like the idea but aren’t convinced they’re for you? I work with Triona who runs YogaBellies, Richmond to offer ladies a birth preparation workshop that combines hypnobirthing and yoga.

We start with a one hour yoga class lead by Triona followed by a two hour hypnobirthing session by Hypnobirthing Mumma. I welcome birth partners to join in for they hypnobirthing session as hypnobirthing isn’t only beneficial for expectant Mums. It’s beneficial for birth partners and your baby. Expectant mums start the session after an hours wonderful yoga with Triona feeling nourished and relaxed. The best place to be for hypnobirthing. Although our workshops take place in Richmond and I offer private hypnobirthing courses in Richmond and surrounding areas. Get it touch to find out the areas that I cover.

The benefits of yoga in pregnancy

Research suggests that practising yoga while pregnancy can help improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth.
  •  Your body can feel more supported from yoga including helping ease any back pain you might be experiencing from carrying your baby bump around. Supporting the changes that are happening in a pregnant body.
  • Helps tone the physical body, especially the pelvic floor, hip, and abdominal core muscles, in preparation for the birthing process.
  • Works to connect with yoga methods around deep, mindful breathing which helps the body loosen and relax during labour.
  • Women find they connect more with their baby when they attend a yoga class. They have that sense of relaxation and being present in that moment. Disconnecting from anything else going on in the outside world.
  • Through stretching and toning your muscles yoga can help ease common pregnancy symptoms. These include back pain, nausea, insomnia, headaches, shortness of breath and carpal tunnel syndrome. Yoga encourages healthy blood circulation throughout the body. Combined with the deep breathing it can bring much needed oxygen to your baby and to your own muscles.
  • It’s also a great way to meet other expectant Mums!

How often are the Birth Preparation Workshops held?

We aim to hold Birth Preparation Workshops every 2 months. The next workshop is being held on Saturday 14 April from 10.00 – 14.00. Held in central Richmond at Hamptons International.

The intention with the birth preparation workshop is for expectant parents to feel nourished and informed. I always encourage parents that even if they don’t go on to book a full KG hypnobirthing course to take away simple snippets of info that can help them achieve a better birth.

Many expectant parents do leave feeling inspired and go on to book a full hypnobirthing course. From the last workshop half of the attendees went on to book a private course.
