You’ll find hypnobirthing helpful if you want to feel more relaxed or enjoy a more normal birth than you’ve previously experienced, or want to prepare to welcome your first baby into the world calmly and confidently. During the hypnotherapy training you will learn exactly how your body works, how to optimise the normal process of birth and how your birth partner can totally support you. I used to work as a midwife, so I’m here to answer your questions about labour or birth and help you feel relaxed and prepared as your due date approaches.
If you have never had a baby before or felt unhappy about a previous birth it’s normal to feel apprehensive, or even frightened. Once you have had hypnobirthing training you will feel totally equipped to birth swiftly, confidently and calmly. In our culture we don’t witness birth first hand before our own experience of giving birth, so we don’t know how it’s done! To understand and train to profoundly relax is the key to a smooth birth and hypnobirthing can help you achieve that.
I highly recommend they join in! I so often hear from birth partners that they felt helpless, or even in the way during their partners’ first labour. With hypnobirthing, birth partners will feel totally at ease and informed as how to support their partner instead of feeling like a spare part!
I keep my groups small, just four couples per session. This not only means that that the training is tailored to you, but you will also meet other couples at the same stage of pregnancy as you are, making it a hugely supportive experience all round.
Yes I do. Please do contact the clinic for details.
I am trained in the Wise Hippo programme which teaches parents to trust their natural instincts, both during birth and afterwards! I’ve been teaching hypnobirthing for over 12 years now! My courses are fun but informative course and I’m confident you’ll gain a lot of valuable tools and information from your course.
The sessions take place every week, for four weeks. Each class is 2 hours long. You’ll receive a fantastic manual, five MP3’s of recordings to use at home, and I also record you a personalised hypnosis audio to help support your hypnobirthing practice at home. You’ll gain a lot from the classes, in addition to having plenty of resources to use at home.
The ideal stage is at approximately 32 weeks, however I have successfully taught couples just a few days before their due date, so don’t worry if you are later in your pregnancy!
The group class is £250.00 per couple, which includes all four of the two hour classes in addition to your manual, relaxation audios and personalised hypnosis tape. Individual classes are priced at £400.00 per couple.
Please note: To secure your place on a hypnobirthing course, a deposit of £100 is required. The full balance is to be paid at the first class.
The courses run on a Monday evening (Times can be arranged to suit you)
The next course starts on Monday, 10th July 2017. Please call the clinic on 01243 379693 to book your place.

Are you having a baby? There’s often a lot of talk about how hard childbirth is for mums (FYI- you might find this helpful!) Whilst this is undeniable, it’s also a physically exhausting, strenuous task for baby too and we know that babies and children are just as likely to experience pain as adults.
Fortunately, children have an incredible capacity to recover from these stresses, and generally respond incredibly quickly with the correct care. So how can chiropractic help? Chiropractic care can promote the relaxation and release of restrictions and held patterns in body structures and is incredibly gentle (the amount of pressure used is no more than you would use to check if a tomato is
ripe!) This is mainly because a baby’s spine is already so supple that very little pressure is required to have an effect.
The care we provide to children at Acorn Health is incredibly gentle and incorporates elements of sacro-occipital technique, cranial work, developmental exercises and other techniques, depending on what is required for your child!
– Breastfeeding problems
– Sleeping problems
– Feeding problems
– Strains that may have occured during birth
– Delayed development
These symptoms may be caused by stress on the child’s body systems caused by:
– Constraint or restriction whilst in the womb (common in multiple births)
– The birth process
– Falls and accidents
– Modern lifestyles (slouching, use of mobile phones and iPads, heavy schoolbags, lack of exercise…) For more on this, please visit this blog.
We want mum and dad to be involved too! It’s not just how we help your little one that will be beneficial, it’s the tools, tips and techniques you recieve during the examintaion that help too. From exercises to help with balance and coordination, to positioning techniques that can help you avoid “flat head” syndrome, we want to give you the tools you need to grow your tiny little
acorn into a strong, healthy oak!
