    Private course

    This is a one to one course allowing us to focus exclusively on you and your birth preparation. We can discuss your worries, your history, your circumstances and your dreams for your birth.

    I am currently offering two options for my private course;

    • Online via zoom

    Zoom has enabled courses to take place wherever you might be in the world - so if you like the look of a Strong Like Mama course and think that I am the hypnobirthing teacher for you, geographical distance is no issue! And, if you are nervous about a face to face course with everything thats going on with the pandemic - let's do it in a way that ensures you're feeling as relaxed as possible, with true social distancing! What's more, you can be curled up on your sofa in your PJs...

    • Face to face, socially distanced

    If you live within 45 minutes' drive of Tonbridge, Kent, and would like a face to face course I will come to you and teach you in accordance with social distancing guidelines. All precautionary hygiene measures will of course be taken, and will be discussed before the course starts. The downside is this means supplying your own biscuits I'm afraid... (so sorry!!)

    Private courses currently take place during working hours on a Saturday, Sunday or Thursday - get in touch to agree dates!

    Includes:

    • Full antenatal education, as per the full course agenda. This involves approximately 9 hours of teaching time, spread across 3 sessions of 3 hours each
    • The Strong Like Mama course companion 
    • A selection of practical, powerful relaxation techniques
    • 6 pregnancy and birth preparation relaxations on MP3, plus a bonus post-natal relaxation
    • Ongoing support from me via phone, email and Whatsapp right up until your birth, including a Birth Booster call at 36+ weeks to top up your confidence levels as you reach full term

    Investment: £349 per couple

    Bespoke refresher course

    Perhaps you have used hypnobirthing for a previous birth and found it wonderful, and so would like to use it again to prepare for a second or third (or subsequent!) baby.

    If you have previously undertaken a full hypnobirthing course but would like a refresher course, I can prepare a bespoke, four hour course in order to prepare you for the birth of a subsequent baby. This course will be tailored to you and will take into account any positive or negative experiences from your previous birth(s).

    As with the full course, above, this can be provided either online via zoom or, if you are within 45 minutes' drive of Tonbridge, I can come to you to provide the course face to face in your garden, whilst observing social distancing guidelines.

    Includes:

    • Discussion in advance to agree the areas upon which you would like to focus
    • 4 hours of total teaching time (at times and dates as agreed)
    • The Strong Like Mama course companion 
    • A selection of practical, powerful relaxation techniques 
    • 6 pregnancy and birth preparation relaxations on MP3, plus a bonus post-natal relaxation 
    • Ongoing support from me, right up until your birth

    Investment: £200 per couple
