Firstly, congratulations on your pregnancy. I’m Susan and I provide modern and mindful Hypnobirthing classes for a calm, confident and positive pregnancy and birth – however you birth your baby. My Hypnobirthing courses are a complete antenatal programme providing you with a whole toolbox of practical techniques and loads of information so that you can feel in control and be totally empowered throughout, and actually enjoy your labour and birth.

You will learn how to release any fears you have about birth, amazing relaxation techniques, simple yet effective breathing and visualisation practices, Mindfulness for pregnancy and parenthood. You will understand birth physiology – how the female body is designed to give birth, and how to create conditions conducive to calm, comfortable childbirth. I give you lots of information in an easy to understand way so that you can make your own choices, make informed decisions, and feel in control. All this combines to really connect you as a couple, so you become a real ‘birthing dream team’. It’s so valuable however you birth your baby, there are no judgements here and I support all types of birth.
I am also a pregnancy yoga teacher and a trained Doula so I include loads of unique and brilliant extras in my courses – just check out my website to find out more.

I run my hypnobirthing courses each month in a lovely setting in York. The classes are informative yet fun, and a great chance to meet other liked minded couples too. I also teach one to one private course at times to suit you, and hypnobirthing refresher courses too.

Do get in touch with any questions, I’d love to hear from you and it’s really important to know that the hypnobirthing and antenatal course you choose is the right one for you and your partner.
