Welcome to GentleBirth (Sheila Barratt-Smith)

Aristotle quote

What is GentleBirth?
GentleBirth is a complete preparation for birth course which will teach you everything you need to know about how to have a comfortable, relaxed and, most importantly, safe birth for you and your baby. Held near Kidderminster in comfortable and relaxing surroundings, the course consists of 5, two and a half hour sessions.

Sheila’s GentleBirth classes use Hypnobirthing™ to help you and the dad-to-be look to forward to giving birth and, when the time comes, to be in control of the birth of your baby.

The HypnoBirthing™ philosophy is that a healthy woman with a healthy pregnancy has the ability to give birth comfortably and safely, without pain and without the need for medical intervention.

HypnoBirthing™ is designed to complement any medical care that you may receive during labour and childbirth. It is not intended to replace it, but can help to make medical intervention unnecessary.

Childbirth is a natural normal bodily function.

“Birth is a natural normal bodily function, for normal healthy women and their healthy babies. It can, therefore, be inferred that healthy women, carrying healthy babies can safely birth without pain or peril.” (Dr John Dye – Easier Childbirth 1891).

Sheila is passionate about helping mums to be. You will not only learn about HypnoBirthing™, but you will get the benefit of her knowledge and experience to help you to achieve the birth
you want.
