HypnoBirthing changes and empowers both mother and father and has the most

profound effect on the baby which will last a lifetime. Being able to teach with confidence the simplicity of a natural and calm birth to mothers and fathers is a privilege and is deeply satisfying.


The Demand for Hypnobirthing Practitioners is Growing

More and more midwives are referring couples to HypnoBirthing classes, and the demand for classes is growing - as is the demand for Practitioners able to teach these classes. This demand will continue to grow significantly over the next few years as the effectiveness of HypnoBirthing becomes increasingly recognised by the wider medical profession and it becomes more and more mainstream.
