Natural Childbirth Preparation Classes - For the Mother-to-Be and Her Birthing Companion.
Discover how to enjoy an easier and more comfortable birth experience. This course is taught over two Saturday mornings.
This small - medium group course offers many practical tools and techniques to help you through labour and childbirth. It promotes the empowerment of the mother by teaching her natural childbirth methods and self-hypnosis. Please note that this course does not replace antenatal classes. Caterina recommends you book early to avoid disappointment as many classes do fill up quickly.
Whether you are a first time Mum or already have children, the tools and techniques of Hypnobirthing, including breathing, relaxation and visualisation, will help you create the joyful, natural birth experience that you desire.
The techniques you will learn allow you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear and tension that prevents the birthing muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to.
With the help of hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis, the birth of your baby can be calmer and relaxed experience; one where you are in the driver's seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing. Hypnosis has been used successfully for many decades to assist mothers in childbirth.
Hypnobirthing doesn't mean you'll be in a trance or asleep. Rather, you'll be able to chat and be in good spirits, totally relaxed, but fully in control. You'll always be aware of what is happening to you and around you.
Classes are relaxed and informal. It is strongly encouraged that the birthing companion attends all classes. The reason I ask couples (or an alternative birth companion) to attend together is so the birth companion can understand the tools and techniques you are learning.
Your birth companion will play a vital role in your labour and birth and I also teach him/her techniques of how to assist you during this time. It is not compulsory for the birth companion to participate in all of the relaxation exercises if he/she does not desire it. However, it is recommended, as the skills, you will learn can be applied to many different areas of your life.
The best time to begin your classes is between 24-34 weeks pregnant; however, it is never too early or late to start. If you are beyond 34 weeks, you will still find the course very valuable, as long as you complete it prior to going into labour.
Alternatively, I offer 3-hour private courses by contacting me on 021 258 4418 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a teacher, Caterina is motivated by a desire to bring excitement, fun and humour to the experience of learning. She has been teaching this popular course for over six years and has many many testimonials to support the assistance that this course has provided.
