HYPNOBIRTHING

Want to feel  confident, supported, powerful and in control…no matter what route your birthing journey takes? Well, Twelve Moons Hypnobirthing might be the course for you. We have supported many couples to achieve the positive birth experience they had hoped for,  through many different birthing scenarios (home, hospital, induction and caesarean)

Our Hypnobirthing course arms you with a whole toolbox of amazing techniques, a shed load of confidence, a powerhouse of a birth partner and a community of likeminded parents to act as your support network through pregnancy and beyond. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?!

SCIENCE BASED APPROACH

Our Hypnobirthing course is based on good quality, reliable evidence and there is absolutely no fluffy stuff. Our approach is to arm you with the solid facts, so you can really trust in your techniques and you know where and how to look for evidence to support your decisions. Twelve Moons is  a proud member of The Birth Uprising, which means we have access to an amazing supportive community of knowledgeable people and the most up to date, evidence-based information.

RIGHTS, CHOICES & ADVOCACY

This is a crucial part of Twelve Moons Hypnobirthing. In order to navigate our current maternity care system, it is vital that you know what your right and choices are, and how to successfully advocate for yourself. Sadly, we have an incredibly high intervention rate, and for the first time in history in the UK, fewer people are going into labour spontaneously, versus induction or caesarean. If you are hoping to avoid a cascade of unnecessary intervention, that can have both long- and short-term negative health effects on you and your family, it is vital that you are fully aware of your rights and choices and that you know how to advocate for yourself.  We are in no way anti intervention, when it is used appropriately, and support ANY informed decisions made by our clients. Your body, your baby, your rules.

BIRTH PARTNERS 

Hypnobirthing is JUST as important for birth partners. There is  a  lightbulb moment in the first session, where the partners realise there is SO MUCH, they can do to help bring this little baby into the world. Being a birth partner is no joke, and studies have shown that having a supportive, consistent birth partner actually improves outcomes. Our course teaches partners how to advocate for the family, navigate the system, as well as give physical, emotional and practical support…this leaves their partner to feel free to birth, safe in the knowledge that they are protected, supported and that everything is being taken care of.

You are welcome to bring ANY birth partner of choice, this could be your Mum, doula, aunt, friend…literally whoever. All are welcome.

We recently did Amy’s Hypnobirthing course and it was honestly the best thing we’ve done to help prepare for our first baby. Amy is so knowledgeable and the course was delivered in such a clear and informative way. I would recommend to anyone looking to explore hypnobirthing or just find out more about the process of birth. You will feel confident, informed and ready for whatever comes your way!

AFTERCARE

Your journey with me does not end when you step out of our sessions. You will have continuous support via whatsapp, so we can signpost you to any relevant articles/evidence to help you make decisions (or just give you a huge pep talk and dose of positive birthy vibes.)

Groups are kept  small (max 4 couples), and there is always  a group WhatsApp, so you can really form close bonds. These are the folk you will be messaging when you are up in the night, feeding your babies and feeling loopy.

Pictured are four confident couples after my October Group course at Evolve Injury Clinic in Long Eaton. 

I wasn’t sure what to expect when we signed up for hypnobirthing but honestly it’s the best thing we did! We’ve both come out of the experience feeling more confident, in control, educated and aware of all of our options. Plus, Amy is an absolute dream who shares knowledge from both experience and facts / science which we really appreciated. Was a lovely way to meet a group of new people going through similar experiences and I know I’ve learnt some skills that will be used through life not just birth. Thanks Amy!

We have ongoing group courses and private courses are available on request. We also have an online Hypnobirthing Essentials workshop, which is ideal if you don't have the time  or the budget for the full course, or you have previously done some antenatal education and you just need a hypnobirthing top-up!
