If you are expecting a rainbow baby / baby after a previous loss, then this version of my hypnobirthing course might be for you. My courses are suitable whether you have been through miscarriage at any stage, stillbirth, molar pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy and TFMR.
Being pregnant with a rainbow baby can sometimes mean that not only do you have all the same concerns and worries as someone who has not experienced loss, but also have the additional worries that can come with having experienced loss.
It is therefore important that parents expecting after loss still have access to vital antenatal care, and receive the same information anyone else would. This is why the rainbow baby full course retains all the key content of my standard offering, (covers all aspects of labour and birth – see the bottom of this page for the full course content) but with some tweaks for pregnancy after loss. The core of my course is based around hypnobirthing. If you want to find about hypnobirthing, then you can read more information here.
Everyone experiences pregnancy after loss differently. Some may have a lot of anxiety, find it hard to relax/enjoy the pregnancy, or, have built up a lot of fear due to past experiences. On the other hand, some may want to try and have an experience that is as ‘normal’ as is possible. However you feel about your pregnancy is totally OK as we are all different, and there is no right or wrong way.
I recognise this and every single rainbow baby course I deliver will be different because I will tailor the content to suit the parents I am working with.
The following are some of the extras that are included in the rainbow baby course compared to the standard course content:
- Adapted relaxation scripts
- Adapted positive affirmations
- How to respond to difficult questions
- Adapting a birth proposal
- Safe space to talk about your past experiences, worries and fears if you wish
- Rainbow Baby Gift bag
- Signposting to other resources/professionals (if required)
- 10% of course profits will be donated to Charity. This will be split between Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity) and Cedar Oak, a charity local to Inspired Mama providing counselling services to those who are coping with miscarriage, stillbirth and TFMR.
My main motivation for creating this version of the course was that I did not want parents expectant after previous loss to feel that there wasn’t a suitable antenatal option available.

This session will re-cap some of the key elements of the full course, but also give you the space and time to talk about anything you may be worried about. It can very much be tailored to what you need.
