Hypnobirthing is birth preparation that allows you to release fear and anxiety in order to have a positive birth that is right for you and your baby.
Meg Brierley from A Gentle Journey offers Hypnobirthing antenatal courses that don’t just cover standard Hypnobirthing techniques. The courses contain practical, emotional and informational support. The content is inspired by her training as a birth and postnatal doula, and rebozo and a postnatal massage practitioner.
It is comprehensive and fully independent Hypnobirthing antenatal preparation that focuses on YOU and developing your confidence as the birth approaches.
Hypnobirthing is not just for pain free, ‘natural’ birth. It is for all birth.Hypnobirthing techniques can be used to achieve an empowered and positive birth regardless of previous birthing experiences, whether the birth is spontaneous or induced, for a single baby or multiple babies and for vaginal or Caesarean birth.
At NJD Sports Injuries Centre you can do 2 day group Hypnobirthing workshops that provide you with everything you need to feel confident, informed and totally prepared for a positive birth. Currently some workshops are being run online until face to face is allowed.
The group Hypnobirthing workshop is an interactive and fully comprehensive antenatal course packed with 10 hours of evidence-based information alongside practical and confidence-boosting techniques to leave you empowered and looking forward to the day of your baby’s birth.
Taking place in a calm, relaxed and intimate studio space, you will benefit from all Meg’s experience as a Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Doula with sessions that cover far more than your average Hypnobirthing or antenatal course.Book Now
