Do you want to be informed for your birth?
Do you want to reduce your fear and anxiety about birth issues?
Do you need to feel secure, safe and confident with your choices?
Are you and your birth partner ready to prepare for labour, birth and beyond?
Hypnobirthing has increased in it's popularity over the past few years as women learn more about empowering their birth experiences and staying in control for a positive birth whether this is at home, in the birthing unit, hospital or theatre. Midwives and professionals recognise its values and positive outcomes for women. It can reduce the need for intervention in labour, lessen the need for analgesia and puts women and their partners in control of the birth experience. It's origins were combined theories of Marie Mongan (1959) who devised a birthing programme using the work of Grantly Dick-Read's - Childbirth Without Fear and her own hypnobirthing practice and knowledge.
The Little Birth Company has written a programme that supports, educates and empowers women and their partners to help plan for a calm, confident and positive birth. The founder members are Wendy - a midwife and Melissa - a hypnotherapist. Together, I believe they have made a programme that is evidence based, safe and achievable. I am excited to be an instructor and help you find start to look forward to the birth of your baby.

A Little Birth Manual aimed in supporting everything you learn in the classes.
