I offer private, one-to-one, top up classes, and hypnobirthing for Caesarian births. Since Covid I have been using Zoom to connect and deliver the course. If you have already completed a hypnobirthing group course and would just like an extra session focusing on specific aspects of birthing I can help! ZOOM is straight forward and easy to use, I just send you and email before the start of each session and you log on with a unique password. All you need is a lap-top, or a desk top and a comfy sofa. Anywhere in the world! In the comfort of your own home, focused and engaging sessions, at a time to suit you. I have found that shorter sessions of 1 - 1.5 hours are better and it means we see more of each other throughout your pregnancy which is a win\win as new things crop up, information changes, options become available and questions crop up. All of the classes below can be and currently are being delivered over Zoom. Have a look below for more details:

"The birth would not have ended up as such a positive experience if it wasn’t for your help! Dan was amazing throughout the birth, especially when the contractions were very bad. He knew just what to say to help me get through". Hannah
I offer one-to-one, (couple) teaching using my depth of knowledge as a nurse and experience as a hypnobirthing teacher and doula since 2009. The entire course takes 10-12 hours and is designed to help you gain confidence in your own ability to birth your baby. Putting you first, with the loving support of your partner and the expertise of the midwives, working as a team to move your baby Earth side! The charge for a individual course is £240 per couple.

My name is Lucy Shutes; I bring my deep experience as a hypnobirthing instructor, as well as my skill and knowledge as a qualified nurse and birth doula. You will learn Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing techniques which will help you relax and keep you focused during the birth of your baby. I will show you how to use self-hypnosis to relax, and zone into your labour, along with your partner. This is whether you are planning a vaginal birth or a gentle caesarian section. Taught over 1 - 1.5 hour sessions and spaced throughout your pregnancy, in an informal and restful environment learning life-skills at such a momentous and exciting time in your lives. I recommend starting your hypnbirthing course around about your 23/24th week of pregnancy. This allows time to fix up dates into your pregnancy which are evenly spaced, but within sight of your 'guess dates'. This means you can really focus on the practise and benefit from the result. It will take daily practise to establish the trust and belief in yourself to enable the 'switch off' button when you go into labour. The daily practise will become like cleaning your teeth, the more you do it, the more you will want to do it as you feel the positive changes happening in you, around you and for your baby. It is always possible to tailor-make a Hypnobirthing course to suit you and your life style, so just contact me for a chat about your particular situation. For more information, either call me on 0752 6116 850 or send me an email via my contact page here or scroll down. TOP-UP Classes £50/session 2 hours. If this is your second or subsequent birth, or if you are familiar with hypnobirthing, or if you are having group classes and would like to focus on specific things, a 'top-up' session can refresh your mind and body. We can always arrange a free informal chat before you commit. An opportunity to share information, drink tea, eat cake to see how Hypnobirthing can fit into your birth. CAESARIAN BIRTH Classes £50/session 2hrs. Lots of women are choosing caesarian births and learning hypnobirthing techniques to help remain calm and focused. Specific information on what happens before, during and after the casesarian along with practical advice can all help keee you informed as to the best way to birth your baby when choosing a caesarian. I invite a previous couple to get in touch and share their experience.
