This course is ideal if you are looking for a tailored one-to-one antenatal course. Each session will be scheduled at times to suit you and your birth partner in the comfort of your own home.
During this bespoke course, Founder and Director, Miriam, will share with you Hypnobirthing principles and give you the tangible tools, knowledge and confidence so that you and your birth partner can prepare for the birth you want. The course is a dedicated space for you to explore your fears, plans and expectations around your pregnancy and birth, with tailored tools and methods that can work for you, your birth partner and your baby.
WHAT THE COURSE COVERS
We look at all of the session content below through a personal, tailored lens. A wonderful benefit of the Private course is you have significant time to share and explore areas that really resonate with you, and areas you feel you’d particularly benefit from.

If you are having a bit of a 'wobble'; want some guidance on using some of the techniques; have had a meeting with your midwife and you’d like to chat through what was discussed; or you’d like us to have a look through your birth preferences/birth plan - whatever it may be, you have the comfort of knowing support is there for you. This really elevates the course and makes it much more personal than you might imagine a group course could be.
