Birth can and should be a wonderful experience. It can leave a woman feeling empowered and overwhelmed with joy. And it should be the wonderful beginning of motherhood. Preparation to birth is key to achieving the birth a woman wants, women can do so much to empower themselves and to remain calm and controlled during birth, so the woman can birth in a safe, easy and comfortable manner, often without needing pain relief.
HypnoBirthing classes are ante-natal classes preparing women to have a calm and positive birth experience. Karen Tootill used HypnoBirthing herself for the birth of her sons, has been teaching HypnoBirthing since 2007 and has helped hundreds of women and couples prepare for birth. Karen has taught women who are feeling relaxed about birth; those who are terrified; women planning VBAC; expecting twins; high risk women birthing in hospital to low risk birthing at home in the pool. HypnoBirthing is for all women who want to feel prepared, calm and in control during labour and birth.

Classes teach women relaxation, self hypnosis, visualisation and breathing techniques so mum can remain relaxed and calm during birth.
