The Grow Antenatal Course – face-to-face group class
This class is suitable for late November, December 2021, and January 2022 due dates.
The Grow Antenatal Course combines a full antenatal class with the skills and techniques of Mindful Mamma Hypnobirthing.
Mindful hypnobirthing classes are wonderful to maximise the effectiveness of the methods described in Sophie Fletcher’s book. Our classes explore why there is a difference in women and how they birth. With our classes, you’ll learn about how to take charge of your environment, wherever you chose to give birth, however you choose. I know from experience that Mindful Mamma Hypnobirthing makes a huge difference to the birth experience of both pregnant women and their partners. By developing techniques that help you to move away from fear, and towards happy, confident expectation, you will learn how to relax and respond to labour in a way that encourages you to be present, connected, and in touch with what you – and your baby – need.
The course is run over a full weekend; choose one or both days, to personalise the course to meet your needs.
