A private hypnobirthing course is perfect for those who want to learn one on one, or can’t make the group classes. Held in the comfort of your own home, at a time convenient for you. Ideal for couples who work shift patterns or who have older children to care for. You will receive one to one, personal guidance throughout your pregnancy journey.

  • Classes cost £370* per couple and will take approximately 10-12 hours.
  • The course is normally spread over four evenings, or two weekends.
  • £50 discount available if you have a pregnant friend to study with.

What does the private hypnobirthing course cover?

The private hypnobirthing course is approximately ten hours long. If you are local to me, you can take the course in two sessions of five hours (with a lunch break in the middle), or four sessions of 2.5 hours. If you are a 30 minute drive or more, I request that you take the course as two five hour sessions.

session one – what is hypnobirthing, the cycle of fear, pain and tension and how to break it, the power of words on our subconscious mind, the muscles of the uterus and how they work.

session two – the different stages of labour and the breathing techniques used for each stage, ways to relax in labour, good pelvic floor health, perineum massage, how to prevent tearing in labour, different birth positions.

session three – reasons for being induced, different types of inductions, how to start labour naturally, how a birth partner can support you in labour, how to use hypnobirthing for a cesarean birth.

session four – how to choose where to give birth, how to prepare for birth and what will happen on the day, the benefits and risks of a water birth, your pain relief options, birthing the placenta, the golden hour after birth.

The private hypnobirthing course is informal and interactive, with plenty of time to ask any questions you might have. Each session includes a relaxation exercise, and a short, positive hypnobirthing birth video.

What does the private hypnobirthing class include?

Each couple will receive a welcome pack which contains hypnobirthing mp3s, class notes, birth affirmation cards and a birth prep goody bag. You will receive dedicated guidance, and I will be contactable throughout your pregnancy keeping you on track until you are holding your baby.

What areas are covered?

You can choose to have the private hypnobirthing course live over zoom, or in person in the comfort of your own home. Please do not feel the need to tidy or make special arrangements for our time together – I am very used to clients taking up house renovations before their baby is born or working and not having a lot of time for house work! The areas that I cover for a private course include Ebbsfleet, Gravesend, Dartford, Swanley, Orpington, Rochester, Chatham, Maidstone, Bexley Village, Bexleyheath, Crayford, Bexleyheath, Welling, Greenwich, South Ockenden, Rainham, Dagenham.

*Bookings are subject to mileage cover for over 30 minutes drive, ULEZ and Dart charge where applicable.

Me and my husband found taking this course one of the most helpful things we have done throughout the whole pregnancy and would highly recommend Colleen to anyone who is interested in hypnobirthing. It left us informed and excited for our upcoming birth and gave us answers to questions we didn’t know we had. It is a really well rounded course, covering lots of important information, not just on hypnobirthing but a whole host of things surrounding birth. We’re really glad we completed the course and look forward to making our birth experience as positive and empowering as we can!

So thankful for these yoga classes! Colleen is so calming and knowledgable when teaching. Really impressed by the range of movements that are super useful for my late stage of pregnancy. Always feel so great afterwards. A wonderful chance to meet other mums of all stages. Looking forward for bump & buggy and all future sessions!

I decided to do the pregnancy yoga classes to safely keep active and stretch out aches and pains during my pregnancy. Colleen was very welcoming and knowledgeable. It was a lovely environment to be in and I always felt better afterwards!

I Love Colleen's classes! I did pregnancy Yoga from when I was 17 weeks pregnant, pretty much to the end of my pregnancy. Felt so much better and always felt so calm and chilled after the class! It is also a great way to meet new mums that are also expecting the same time as you! i highly recommend.

I loved Colleen's hypnobirthing class. It was very informative and answered a lot of questions I had. I know I can use the techniques no matter what delivery I will have, it puts my mind at ease before very important event ahead of me. Thank you Colleen.

I did a private 1-2-1 course after feeling a little unsure if I had apprehension having already had a child. I loved her approach, got lots of techniques whilst keeping an open mind to it all. Feeling calm and ready to go again.

I had my first mum and baby class with Colleen when my little girl was nearly 3 months old, and after my C-section I was still a bit cautious about exercise. I was also worried how my baby would settle, she hated being put down at the best of times! I had no reason to worry, Colleen's classes are baby led, in a totally relaxed, no pressure environment. The yoga itself was pitched at a great level, with Colleen demonstrating different poses which suitable a range of capabilities for those who wanted more or less of a workout. I loved the singing/rhyming and bubbles in the "baby yoga" portion of the class too. It felt really good to feel like I was investing a bit of time in myself again but also participating in something enriching for my baby. Thank you so much Colleen for helping me mentally and physically in my post partum period. Jane Farr

I attended Colleen's pregnancy yoga classes and absolutely loved going each week. It eased all of my aches and pains and gave me something to look forward to each week. Colleen was always full of knowledge and advice, and made me feel relaxed about heading towards labour. I had intended to attend the mum and baby yoga classes but sadly couldn't. Really recommend Colleen and her classes.

I attended Colleen’s mum and baby yoga classes. They were just what I needed to get out with my baby for a fun activity, light exercise and to meet other local mums.
