Hypnobirthing & Antenatal Classes in Hampshire

Expert Hypnobirthing Antenatal Classes near to Portsmouth, Hampshire

Welcome to Inspired Mama and congratulations on your pregnancy!

Whether you were looking specifically for hypnobirthing near Portsmouth, or you’ve just discovered it whilst on a quest to achieve a more positive birth experience then you have come to the right place.

I offer both virtual, and in-person private hypnobirthing antenatal classes in Portsmouth & Southampton, Hampshire and all the surrounding areas, helping you to prepare for the best possible birth experience for you and your baby.

You may feel that everywhere you turn people want to tell you their negative birth stories, or your idea of birth has come from what is portrayed in TV programmes and movies. Perhaps you have had a more challenging experience with a previous birth and would like a more positive experience this time around. Any one of these things (and many other factors) can leave you feeling fearful or anxious. 

It could also be that you don’t feel particularly anxious, but you want to ensure you are as calm and relaxed as possible going into labour. You may want to feel empowered to make informed choices along the way, leaving you to feel more in control of your overall birth experience – no matter where, when or how that happens.

Wherever you may fit with your feelings and experiences, my hypnobirthing classes can help support you. In addition, if you are expecting a much longed for rainbow baby I have classes to support you too.

About Me & My Hypnobirthing Journey

Hypnobirthing Teacher

After my own journey through multiple pregnancies and my discovery of hypnobirthing which ultimately changed the course of my daughter’s birth, I decided to take the plunge and train as a hypnobirthing teacher.

I am a fully qualified teacher offering private one-to-one hypnobirthing antenatal classes in person in Portsmouth, Hampshire and all surrounding areas. I can also cater for those further afield via virtual sessions.

I enjoy nothing more than helping expectant parents prepare for the upcoming birth of their bundle of joy – a moment which is likely to stay with you forever! I love seeing the transformation that my classes bring people, whether that may be releasing fear, empowering and providing confidence to make decisions or simply feeling positive about birth.

Learn About Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a technique to help aid fear release, relaxation, calmness and feelings of control and empowerment during pregnancy, labour and birth. It gives you the understanding and the belief that your body was designed to bring your bundle of joy into this world, and is completely underpinned by science. Whilst nobody can guarantee a perfect birth, hypnobirthing will make a difference, no matter the circumstances – hypnobirthing can make a difference even when birth takes a different course to the one you may have hoped for.

Having a healthy baby is one priority, but also the way we feel about the experience afterwards is just as important – it will stay with you for life. Many of us go into labour not realising what processes are occurring within our body, all we know is that the end result should be a baby in our arms. Actually understanding how the body works to facilitate birth, feeling empowered to make informed choices along the way and feeling actively involved in the journey is very important to how you will view your birth experience in years to come. If this is a subsequent pregnancy, particularly after previous loss, or birth trauma, it can be a chance to work towards a more healing birth.

Hypnobirthing for Pregnancy After Loss

Pregnancy after any type of previous baby loss can be a dauting experience. It is very normal to feel more anxiety throughout your pregnancy with your rainbow baby, and to have worries about your baby’s impending birth.

Hypnobirthing can be a really positive tool that you can use to help aid relaxation during pregnancy and labour, which ordinarily may be very hard to come by. There is also the focus on releasing fear, which can support you in controlling some of the anxieties you may have. Additionally, the hypnobirthing classes can help you identify what makes you feel safe which in turn can help you take more control over the type of birth that you would like, as well as learning what isn’t helpful. This is really important as it can have a real impact on how you feel about your baby’s birth in the future.

Hypnobirthing FAQs

By doing a hypnobirthing course, does that mean I have to have a natural drug free birth?

No, not at all. The hypnobirthing courses are designed to arm you with the knowledge on how your body works to facilitate birth, as well as a toolbox of techniques that you can use to help relieve fears and promote relaxation. This in turn can positively influence how you feel during labour, and may mean you feel you don’t need, or want to use any drugs. However, various drug options and birthing options are available to you and the courses will help you to feel empowered to make informed choices, whilst having the tools to remain as calm as possible in the face of any unexpected challenges.

At what stage in my pregnancy can I begin hypnobirthing classes?

You can start at any stage, the earlier you begin the more time you have to practice the techniques learnt. Many women choose to begin during their second trimester. It is never too late to start though, you can learn the course material and techniques any time and it will be beneficial.

Can I do hypnobirthing if I previously had a caesarean?

Yes you can. A lot of material is covered within the course and if this is the first time you have joined a hypnobirthing class you are likely to find you learn a lot of new information and relevant techniques.
