Birth Preparation

Group Birth Preparation

Once a month I run two one day workshops over the course of a weekend. The first, the Birth Preparation workshop, is run on a Saturday between 10am and 4pm, and on the Sunday I also offer a one day Hypnobirthing workshop during the same hours. These groups are small (maximum for 4 couples) which means I am able to devote more time to you and your needs as we move through the day.

The cost of these workshops also includes unlimited text and email support up to 6 weeks following the birth of your baby (please note this support isn’t always instant, particularly when I am with another client or supporting a birth).

 

Hypnobirthing Day
£150.00 per couple

This one day Hypnobirthing course is the ideal accompaniment to any antenatal birth preparation course, but works especially well with the Birth Preparation Day I run. During this workshop we will look at and explore

  • The origins of fear in birth

  • What is Hypnosis / Hypnobirthing

  • How to release and let go of any fears you may have

  • Affirmations

  • Using relaxation to prepare for birth

  • Gentle breathing techniques

Birth Preparation Day
£125.00 per couple

Antenatal education with a positive twist. Yes, really! During this workshop we will look at and explore all aspects of birth including

  • How our bodies are designed to give birth

  • Birth environment / setting (including place of birth options)

  • Induction

  • Assisted birth

  • Cesarean birth

  • How partners can help

  • Your body after birth

 

Most people choose to attend both workshops across the weekend. Should you wish to do this I offer both sessions at £250.00 per couple instead of £275.00.

Personalised Birth Preparation

My birth preparation service will be completely unique to you and your partner. The short way to explain what I do, would be to say I become your birth preparation friend.

I combine emotional support with the best of Hypnobirthing and traditional antenatal education to provide you with the information and knowledge you want and need specific to your pregnancy to ensure you are at your most confident through pregnancy and birth. I particularly specialise in supporting women who have perhaps had a previous difficult birth experience or first time mothers with a particularly deep rooted fear of birth.

I will typically begin work with you at around 20 weeks into your pregnancy, but do get in touch if you are further along as we will be able to do some valuable birth preparation together whatever stage your pregnancy is at.

This package includes

  • 5x two hour antenatal sessions, (these are typically spaced 4 weekly)

  • 5x one hour phone calls (these are typically spaced 4 weekly)

  • 1x two hour postnatal session, (this is usually within the first week or two following birth)

Unlimited text and email support up until 6 weeks after you baby has been born (please note this support isn’t always instant, particularly when I am with another client or supporting a birth)

This package is available as outlined above for £680.00 (it may be possible to arrange to have some or all of the sessions via Skype / FaceTime. If you would like me to come to you, then the package is £780.00 (if you live more than 10 miles away there is a charge of 45p for each additional mile I need to travel to and from your location).

You may choose to combine any of the above packages with my Postnatal Doula services. An add on of my 20 hour package would be available to you (assuming you live within 10 miles of Stokenchurch) for £245.00 instead of the regular price of £335.00. If you live further than 10 miles from Stokenchurch an additional fee to cover fuel will apply.

I’d love to chat with you about your pregnancy and how I may help you prepare for your big day. Do fill out the contact form and let’s arrange your free one hour face to face antenatal consultation.
