|Which hypnobirthing company? |
As an approved clinical hypnotherapist, childbirth educator and doula with 13 years of hypnobirthing teaching under my belt, I've observed that the key to success is the time you invest in your own ongoing practice. Hypnobirthing theory is easy and can be explored in just a few hours... The rest is down to you! My approach is affordable, straight to the point and it works ~ you'll be up and running with your practice very quickly (about me)
"Alice is fantastic at what she does! We saw Alice in person twice, but also felt safe in knowing we could always ask her for advice at any time during the pregnancy. Our birth was amazing... If you want to be as prepared as you can for birth, and want it to be a natural and empowering experience I would highly recommend Alice!" Jemma, Truro
I'm based in Cornwall so I usually teach private workshops here or nearby ~ visiting you at your home or holiday accommodation. I also travel throughout the rest of the UK, subject to availability and additional modest costs.
What do we need to provide?
Just a quiet(ish) space to chat and relax... Maybe a cup of tea! I bring everything I need.
It's up to you... Hypnobirthing is most effective with lots of practice, so most people book for around 25-34 weeks, but earlier is good if you're feeling particularly anxious and full-term bookers also benefit too. For the 'essentials' course, choose between:
- Two x 2 hour workshops
- One x 4 hour intensive
"I cannot recommend this highly enough. Alice's hypnobirthing workshops helped me have a really wonderful birth (despite being unexpectedly induced!) and I'm certain that not only I benefited but also my partner and our little boy" Rae, Helston
