Testimonials...I will be happy to put you in touch with couples who have attended my courses so you can ask any questions.

 What partners say …..

Mother-to-be  expecting third baby

“I’m still ecstatic after the birth, and although it was hard work, I wouldn’t call it painful…   I’m so glad I found out about Natal Hypnotherapy and went on the workshop, it made such a difference to the labour and my life in general as you can use it elsewhere. ”

Natal Hypnotherapy TM  

Natal Hypnotherapy  is the UK's leading provider of hypnosis for birth workshops and award winning CDs.

 I am a fully registered Natal Hypnotherapy practitioner for South Hampshire, covering Winchester, Southampton, Salisbury, and Romsey. I work with my colleague Zana Parker offering group workshops and one to one private sessions, as well as individually tailored birth preparation sessions. I am a hypnotherapist too, training with the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy, to offer additional support for those with anxiety and fear of birth (tokophobia).  

Two Day Course

The Natal Hypnotherapy(TM) programme comprises a two-day course for a mother-to-be and partner. The course can be taken at any time during pregnancy.
 You can attend in different months. We recommend you attend day 1 (Natural Pain Relief) as soon as you can so that you can begin practice and you may find you feel calmer about pregnancy and some women report they sleep better. Day 2, Practical Birth Preparation, is best at a later stage in pregnancy. On this day you will reinforce your relaxation practice and learn how to prepare for birth with skills such as massage, positions for pregnancy, labour and birth. We address partners' concerns and will develop skills for communicating with birth professionals. The 2 day course culminates in developing your plan together ,for all stages of your labour, birth and the early hours with your new baby. 

Free materials worth £65! 
Before you buy relaxation downloads at £10 each....you will have course materials, and  a package of Natal Hypnotherapy tracks to download, for you both to continue practising relaxation. There is even a special track for birth partners!  The more you practise, the easier you will find it to relax deeply.

Additional materials - book/download package special offer 

*subject to availability* 
When you book a course, you can buy Maggie Howell's book "Effective Birth Preparation" (RRP £9.99) and a  voucher, to purchase an additional download of your choice for £18 (RRP 19.99).  You could choose the Labour Companion/Birth Music download, or the Postnatal wellbeing track. or Companion to Breastfeeding,  You will collect this package at your course or I can post these to you for a small postage charge. 

 Additional downloads and CDs are available from the well established Natal Hypnotherapy range, favoured by over 100,000 customers. 

It's for Dads too...

Women's partners or birth partners are encouraged to attend, to experience self hypnosis for themselves, and to work with the woman to find out how best to support her  in labour, gain techniques for working with the professional team attending her, and to consider how they can attend to their own needs. One dad commented - "At no time during the birth did I feel like a spare part". 

Group workshop or one to one?

Group size is small for Natal Hypnotherapy workshops,typically up to 5 couples,  so that everyone has the time they need. We ask you to complete a questionnaire before the workshop so that we can prepare ahead.

If the course dates don't suit you, or if you simply prefer to do the course alone or with your partner, you can request a one-to-one session..  We can hold the session in your home for a small additional cost to cover travel and time.  

Two by two..

Do you have a friend or relative who is pregnant and would also benefit from the course? We could run a course for 2 couples in one of your homes, and save you both money!

Baby shower gift certificates

What better baby gift for a colleague or friend,  than preparation for a calm birth experience - it will outlast baby grows, tiny vests and even travel systems!
