Are you hoping for a positive birth near Beddington?

We have all heard horror stories of traumatic births and the negative associations of giving birth can feel somewhat ingrained. Hypnobirthing, positive birth, and mindful birthing are just a few of the terms that are used when it comes to having a calm birth experience. But what do these mean and how can hypnobirthing lead to a more positive birth? Our childbirth classes near Beddington, Mitcham, or Merton tech simple self-hypnosis, relaxation, and breathing techniques, combined with practical education to lead to an easier and more positive birthing experience.

Rachel teaches the Mindful Birth Group syllabus that incorporates hypnobirthing theory and techniques, as well as mindfulness tools. Our courses teach the science of what happens to the body when it goes through labour and the importance of the mind-body connection and how our thoughts can impact the process and how we feel. Our classes teach powerful visualisation and deep relaxation techniques.

Our course will look at what different types of births can look like, from spontaneous labour at home or a birth centre, induced labour at a hospital, or an unplanned abdominal birth (caesarean) in a hospital. We will look at how to create a supportive environment, the role of the birth companion, exercises and movements you can practice during pregnancy and birth to support birth, and writing your birth preferences.

Our classes will also look at the ‘fourth trimester’ and how you can best plan and prepare for postnatal recovery.
