Worried about giving birth? Feeling out of control? Looking to have a calm birth experience? Or just want to learn more?
There is no wrong way to birth, but hypnobirthing is about developing mums belief in herself and her body, preparing her to feel more in control throughout the labour.
Our Hypnobirthing classes and individual sessions aim to support pregnant women to have a calmer birth, through education, relaxation and breathing techniques. Our experts help to release fear, develop self-belief, and equip mum with the tools and knowledge for a more positive birthing experience.
Research shows women who hypnobirth are more likely to have a calm birth experience, including the following:
- decreased chance of induction
- shorter length of labour
- higher overall birth satisfaction
- less need for pain relief
However it doesn’t matter what type of birth you plan for – it’s a vital tool whether you plan on having a calm homebirth, calmer natural birth, or a calm birth with intervention, such as a c-section. Whatever your plan, we can help.
At the Luna Hive, we have expert women’s health hypnobirthing teachers with a special interest in helping women with anxiety related to labour and birth. Our experts are effective in releasing childbirth fear, and preparing pregnant women for a calmer birth. Book your hypnobirthing class or individual package today!
OUR HYPNOBIRTHING TEACHERS
Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal programme and an effective way to eliminate any fear or anxiety that we have about birth. The impact that this has on the physiology of birth is tremendous, and research has shown that it reduces the need for medical pain relief, reduces the rates of intervention and increases maternal satisfaction in birth.– Megan Rossiter, Hypnobirthing Teacher, Cobham
Hypnobirthing courses are a unique antenatal education that combines a hypnobirthing foundation to help you have a positive birth experience with tools to support your mental wellbeing in the postnatal period.– Rachel Clarke, Hypnobirthing Teacher, Weybridge

WHAT TO EXPECT
So you find out you are pregnant and have no idea what to expect at your birth. You’ve heard it will be very painful and it’s making you feel anxious? Perhaps you’ve bought all the kit but have put off thinking about what will happen in labour.
Within the hypnobirthing sessions, you will explore what fears you have around birth, and will learn techniques for releasing these fears. We might do this a number of ways, including:
– exploring your goals for birth
– learning about the link between your subconscious mind and your body
– learning the art of deep relaxation
– exploring subjects such as birth choices, identity and the transition into motherhood and breastfeeding
– involving your birth partner (if you wish to)!
The sessions will include education, breathing exercises, guided visualisations, guided discussion, fun learning exercises and lots of opportunities to relax and unwind. There are no swinging pocket watches!
We offer hypnobirthing sessions in groups or individually.
WHAT’S THE BUZZ
I loved the relaxation and breathing exercises. When the contractions properly started I seemed to manage to get myself into the breathing where that was all I really focused on, meaning that I remained totally calm and with less focus on pain. I think the classes really helped me and I think everyone should do them.
Best money spent. I was so worried about the birth after my previous experiences, but the breathing exercises and visualizations were just what I needed to find my calm. In the labour I remembered all I had practiced and had the best experience.
Such a useful resource and really reassuring to have a variety of experts all in one place. When streaming through Google you can never quite be sure of the quality of the people that come up – so it’s helpful to know someone has already done the vetting and recommending.
