HYPNOBIRTHING For GROUPs & INDIVIDUALs
Jo is a fully qualified Certified Hypnotic Birthing Practitioner using the easibirthing® technique.
Having your baby has the potential to be one of the most wonderful experiences of your life. Each birth is unique, and it is about empowering you to have a calm and confident birth without anxiety or fear.
At our hypnobirthing classes, you will learn to use self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods to prepare both your mind and body for birth. We will teach you how to use hypnosis for pain management and to show you how to reach a state of deep relaxation. The classes will boost your trust in your body so you enter labour feeling calm, confident and in control.
It is about changing your expectation of birth so that you help rather than hinder the natural process, and develop valuable life skills for parenthood. Childbirth is a natural physiological process that a woman’s body is fully equipped for.
Our classes are full of practical skills you can use after you have had your baby as well.
What my clients say about hypnobirthing
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a technique to help you prepare for the birth of your baby and cope with labour as calmly, gently and safely as possible using visualisation, breathing and relaxation methods.
Our classes will give you and your birth partner practical skills to assist in labour and birth. We teach deep relaxation techniques, visualisation and breathing during your pregnancy.
These techniques help your body through the natural process of giving birth without you tensing up and being afraid, and you will experience less pain during the birth. It’s also about using positive language, ‘affirmations’, anchors or positive mantras to help you to stay focused.
Our 4 week course empowers you to feel prepared, in control, calm and confident, assisting you to build confidence and at the same time helping you to build a relationship with your unborn baby.

Will I be in control during my labour and birth if I use hypnosis?
Absolutely you will be in control. Hypnosis is a feeling of deep relaxation. You will be aware of what is going on around you but you are able to ignore any distractions. It’s similar to when you are engrossed in a film or a book. You are deeply focused but you can easily tune back into other things going on whenever you want or need to. You will be able to chat, be totally relaxed, aware and fully in control.
Does Hypnobirthing mean that my labour and birth will be pain free?
Some mums who have used Hypnobirthing during pregnancy say that they didn’t feel pain during labour and birth and didn’t need any pain relief. However, please note that hypnobirthing doesn’t guarantee the absence of pain during labour and birth as many other factors may need to be taken into consideration.
Remember that we are aiming to give you the techniques and the understanding to allow you to enjoy the birth and to make it easier and more comfortable.
I’ve already had one baby, will hypnobirthing work for me?
Yes, hypnobirthing is brilliant whether this is your first or your fourth baby. Some women may have been disappointed by their previous birth experience and this can lead to fear for future births. Hypnobirthing techniques will enable you to have a very positive next birth.
Should my partner attend the classes with me?
Hypnobirthing classes are a great way for your partner to also understand what is happening to you and baby during birth and provides valuable techniques for both you and your partner. Classes allow you both to feel ready and positive about the birth of your child
What if I have a C-Section?
You may be in a situation where you need to make a choice between a vaginal birth and a C-section. Hypnobirthing teaches you the skills to make an informed decision that is right for you and your baby.
Hypnobirthing will still help you if you have to have a C-Section by allowing you to relax and feel calm
