Is HypnoBirthing suitable for everyone?

HypnoBirthing is for all births whether they be at home, hospital or at a birthing centre.

At what stage in my pregnancy should I attend classes?

It’s recommended that you start classes anytime after around 20 weeks pregnant however if you are later on in your pregnancy that’s absolutely fine too.

Does my husband/partner have to attend?

The birthing companion whether that be your husband, partner, friend or other family member attends the classes as well so they can learn to support you throughout your labour.

I used HypnoBirthing for the birth of my daughter and was absolutely amazed, it helped me more than I ever could of expected in my wildest dreams. Throughout the birth I felt calm, in control and confident in my own abilities. Thank you so much Stephanie for your wonderful classes, we really enjoyed them, it was the best money we have ever spent! Michelle, Christchurch

I would highly recommend HypnoBirthing to anyone who is pregnant. I found Stephanie to be a wonderfully caring and supportive tutor.

I wanted to say thank you so much again for the HypnoBirthing classes – I have told all my friends about how amazing and useful it was for us.
