The Birthing Programme (hypnobirthing)




This fun, extensive hypnobirthing programme is full of factual information about labour and birth, along with simple to follow tools and techniques, so that you are able to:

  • Alleviate any fears

  • Build confidence

  • Become an expert in relaxation

  • Ensure that you are always the ones in control of your baby’s birth (whatever turn your birthing takes).

A quote from The Wise Hippo:

“We believe a ‘positive birth’ experience is a state of mind; it’s not defined by what happens during labour and birth but by how a woman feels about her baby’s birth. Because of this belief we are able to teach skills and knowledge that empower women to trust their instincts and ensure that their baby has the right birth on the day.

We respect that every woman has the right to choose the birth that she wants for her child (whatever that may be) and we trust that our clients know what is right for them”.

WOAH, that’s a LOT of stuff!


The Birthing Programme is 12 hours typically split into 4 x 3 hour classes. They are usually attended by Mum and Birthing Partner. The Birth Partner is the person who will be by your side during your birth. They could be your intimate partner, your baby’s Daddy, your sister, your mum, your doula etc.

It’s ideal for you to be between 20 – 34 weeks of pregnancy allowing plenty of time for practice. For more on when do I start? please visit FAQs.


Group : £245 per couple (max 4 couples per group)

Private : £430 per couple (+mileage) (in the comfort of your own home)

Duet Private: If you have a friend who would also like to do the course then I can teach both couples in either home. Message me for details.

I offer payment plans and gift vouchers so do get in touch if you’d like to chat about how I can help you.
