Frequently Asked Questions
Is Hypnobirthing suitable for everyone?
Hypnosis is not suitable for clients who have epilepsy or clinical depression. If you have any doubts about whether or not you would be able to attend my Hypnobirthing classes, feel free to contact me at any time and I can answer any questions you might have.
Who can I bring along to the classes with me?
Physical and emotional support is at the heart of Hypnobirthing, so you are encouraged to bring your Birth Partner along to the classes with you. It does not need to be the birth father, you can bring along someone you will be with you when you birth your baby - male or female, friend or relative. There is no need for you to feel that you are on your own - my classes offer ongoing support until your baby is born.
What is the role of my Birth Partner in the classes?
Your Partner's role is to support you by helping you to practise the breathing techniques, hypnosis scripts and massage techniques you will learn on the course. Doing a lot of practice together between the sessions means that when the time comes for you to have your baby, you are both as familiar as you can be with what will help you the most during labour and birth.
Where are the sessions held?
If you opt for private classes, these will be held in the comfort of your own home. Group classes are held in the evenings at various venues across Lanarkshire and Glasgow.
Do I have to provide anything for the classes?
No, everything you need for the course is provided. The important thing is that you practise the various techniques I will teach you as often as possible, to maximise what you learn during the course.
When is the best time to attend the classes?
You can attend classes any time, preferably so that you have plenty of opportunity to practise all the techniques you will learn. The more you put into your practice, the more you will get out of the course! However, if you are in the later stages of pregnancy, even as late as 36 weeks, you can still get a great deal of benefit from an intensive weekend course. Classes fill up quickly so don't hesitate to contact me to book your place on a course.
