HypnoBirthing Classes in Caterham
I offer both Group and Private classes, depending on your needs. Group classes can give the opportunity to meet and bond with other HypnoBirthing parents, but the groups are small enough for you to get a personalised service.
A good time to start the course would be after 20 weeks. Somewhere between 25-30 weeks, is an ideal time, as the success of the course is strongly linked to how much practice time you put in. Find out the benefits » of this comprehensive course.
Group Class Dates
Reigate or via Zoom
I am based in Surrey close to Epsom, Banstead, Reigate & Redhill, and cover all of Surrey and South West London. I can provide Private antenatal classes in my own home, or I can travel to your home. Location of group sessions would normally be closer to where I am based.
Packages & Prices
Gold package, plus two post-natal hypnosis sessions. These are also available separately ».
What you can expect from the course:
- Continued on-going support : one to one, or telephone support.
- Classes are in groups of not more than six couples or private classes.
- Recommend a friend who completes the course, and receive a 10% discount.
- Refreshments will be provided during classes.
Normally the antenatal classes would consist of 5 sessions, each lasting approximately 2.5 hours. Classes would normally be at least 1 week apart to enable you to have time to practice and master the techniques learnt during each class. Private antenatal classes are often more flexible than group sessions.
In comparison to free NHS antenatal classes, this may appear costly, however what it offers and covers is far beyond the scope of those classes.
