Hypnobirthing allows you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free from the fear and tension that can prevent you birthing your baby the way you would like to.
Shakti Birthing (formerly Bath Hypnobirthing Centre) will help you prepare physically and psychologically for childbirth, one of the most natural and wonderful processes that a woman can experience. This powerful hypnobirthing course focuses on deep relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques to help you achieve a more relaxed, comfortable and fulfilling natural birth experience.
As a ‘Certified Hypnotic Birthing Process Practitioner’ by the National College of Hypnosis & Psychotherapy, and a fully qualified 'Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist', the Shakti Birthing course provides the best possible information and techniques to prepare you for the birth of your child (click here for more about your therapist).
Hypnobirthing courses are regularly held in Bradford on Avon, Bath & Frome. London hypnobirthing courses will be available in mid 2019. Pregnancy relaxation classes also coming soon as well as C Section preparation classes.
