Be fully prepared for the arrival of your baby – whether it’s your first baby or you have had a baby before. Our antenatal course is designed for you.

Our unique Mindful Birth hypnobirthing courses are all about the power of 3:
Options+Environment+Mindfulness

Hypnobirthing is a proven and widely used set of techniques that help a woman give birth in a calm and confident way. Breathing, visualisation and positive reinforcement are the foundations of the various techniques that are taught.

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present and be aware of where we are and what we’re doing. It stops us from feeling overwhelmed or anxious by what’s going on around us.

Mindful Birth courses bring these two concepts together to prepare mums and parents by focusing on the mind-body connection, helping them to focus on what is in their control, and let go of what is out of their control. This concept can apply to every single birthing scenario, from home water birth to planned or unplanned abdominal birth, and everything in between. Parents who take Mindful Birth courses feel prepared to meet their baby and go on to begin parenthood feeling good about the choices they made in preparation for and during the birth.

Testimonials

Feedback we've received about our courses, from women based across Northamptonshire

Nicole

"We had a brilliant birth mindfulness session.  We went to Rhonda after a difficult experience during the birth of our first child.  The birth mindfulness session helped us focus on how we would like the birth of our second child to be, introduced us to mindfulness in labour, and gave us tips on how we could prepare for a calm labour experience. Rhonda very kindly brought a book to our house afterwards to help us develop these techniques even further. We would recommend this session to others."
