GentleBirth Course Information

The course is for small groups of up to 6 couples, a couple usually being the mum-to-be and her birthing partner. This is usually the dad to be but sometimes this is not possible so it can be someone else – mum, a sister or friend.

What you will learn on a GentleBirth course:

  • Everything you need to know to achieve a safer, easier and more comfortable birth for you and your baby
  • How the muscles of the body are actually designed to make childbirth an easy and natural event
  • How relaxation and self hypnosis can take you comfortably through each stage of labour
  • Why women in other cultures give birth so easily
  • Body positions, breathing and massage techniques, for a more comfortable labour
  • The source of the myth that pain must accompany a normal birth
  • Simple but effective massage techniques
  • How diet can help you through pregnancy and achieve an easier birth
  • How your thoughts about birth can influence the type of birth you have
  • Hypnotherapy skills to build confidence so you and your partner can look forward to the birth
  • How to keep your baby safe during birth
  • Natural ways to bring your body into labour without artificial chemical induction
  • Everything you need to know to achieve a safer, easier and more comfortable birth

You will also watch videos of women giving birth in a relaxed and comfortable way without medical intervention. You will be fascinated to see how much they actually enjoy their birth and to hear them talking about it.
