Dates and Prices

Reading HypnoBirthing Courses are recommended after 22 weeks to ensure Mums-to-be have time to practice the techniques and for the mind/body link to be securely established before the birth. However, it has been known for Mums to attend right up to their due date – a crash course can be arranged if necessary –  it’s better late than not at all!

 Private tuition

I offer private tuition in the privacy and comfort of your own home, or mine. If you live within the Reading area the cost is £399. If outside of this area then travel time and cost will be added. Please contact me to enquire about starting a private class with me.

Group Courses

I run group classes with a maximum of 6 people (mums and their birth partners) from my home. It is a great place to meet other mums and their birth companions and to make new friends. Group Classes are £299 and include the Hypnobirthing manual, 5 x MP3s, professional scripts, class handouts and refreshments.

Book early to secure your place as classes are very popular and are purposely kept small.

I searched for the perfect place to teach your course from. I wanted somewhere that was a place that you could feel comfortable and relaxed, a place that you enjoyed spending time at while you were on your journey to parenthood. But all I found was draughty,  dirty village halls and that wasn’t what I wanted you to experience. 

 I want you to feel comfortable and at home while you learn HypnoBirthing so I have been teaching from my lovely home, which is spacious, warm and clean; unlike the village halls!

 It has proved to be the perfect place to teach HypnoBirthing.
