The Hypnobirthing Book is a complete antenatal preparation which guides you to achieve the birth you want. Childbirth can be an empowering and positive experience that you treasure for the rest of your life.

Hypnobirthing teaches simple and gentle techniques that have a profound effect. By practising these techniques during pregnancy, you can release fear and anxiety, and build confidence in yourself and your body’s ability to give birth naturally. Feeling calm and confident during labour helps your body to work efficiently, releasing endorphins, your body’s natural anaesthetic.

Hypnobirthing can reduce the need for pain relief and shorten labour, and you
are more likely to experience a natural, calm, comfortable birth. It actively involves the father; you will both learn skills to instil confidence about the birth and your role as parents.
