The Wise Hippo antenatal classes
My Wise Hippo classes are a full set of antenatal childbirth education classes in Brampton, Chesterfield, Derbyshire or within your own home. You can come along with your birth partner or on you own.
I teach the full suite of the Wise Hippo Blueprint Bump, Birth and Baby, which focus' on more than just standard hypnobirthing (which is great, but all to often the focus centres around the perfect drug free birth), the Wise Hippo focus centres around YOU having the right birth on the day. Whatever that may be. Also and importantly, how your birth partner can support you using knowledge learnt on the Wise Hippo courses and/or through the male specific Birthing4Blokes
on-line course. After all, the reality is that all pregnancies are different. Our feelings, needs, life stories and emotions are different. So therefore, it stands to reason that all births will be different.
I have courses suitable for all types of birth.
This means even if your birth plan changes during our time together we can discuss how I can fully support you.
All the courses, my experience, my knowledge, ongoing support and experience will focus on you having the right birth on the day. This means giving you the support, the tools you need and the confidence to make the right decisions for you and your baby in the lead up to and on birthing day. This is achieved by giving you in-depth knowledge and information regarding the birthing process, self hypnosis, hypnobirthing tools and techniques to maximise the release of your body's own pain killers and labour hormones - endorphins and oxytocin and showing your birth partner how they can fully support you.
After all the day you meet your child, is the most important day of your life. I wish you to look back on that day, many many times with happiness and joy.
ladies who enrol feel much more confident and relaxed about birth after just class
one, by the end of the course they are positively beaming and excited to
have their baby. Birth partners report feeling much more in control
and feel they are able to support their partners.
