About the Hypnobirthing Association

The Hypnobirthing Association is the professional organisation of choice for Hypnobirthing teachers. It also helps you find a well trained teacher near you for your Hypnobirthing class.

The Hypnobirthing Association was founded as an organisation to which all professionally trained Hypnobirthing teachers can belong. We promote ethical standards and good quality training, and support the practice of Hypnobirthing teaching worldwide.

The Association is respected as the authoritative voice for hypnobirthing, and we are regularly consulted by the national press on the subject and natural childbirth in general.

All of our members are passionate advocates of the use of hypnobirthing as a wonderful and effective method of natural childbirth, with a commitment to promoting it whenever they have the opportunity.

Our membership has been growing steadily in the United Kingdom and around the world, and includes midwives and hypnobirthing teachers who have trained in a range of hypnobirthing disciplines.

For Hypnobirthing Teachers

As a Hypnobirthing teacher, you will want to be sure that you are a member of an organisation that supports you in your work and maintains the highest standards. We organise study days to keep you up-to-date in your work and to give you the opportunity to meet your Hypnobirthing colleagues and exchange ideas. All the tools you need to teach are available to you in the Members’ Area, and we also give you support at exhibitions.

As a member of The Hypnobirthing Association you are part of a friendly, supportive and professional community. Our role, is to offer advice, peer-to-peer mentoring and training to all our members. We also update members regularly on best practice in hypnobirthing and provide access to an active forum where we can all support each other.

We also help our members through the promotion of hypnobirthing as wonderful choice for natural childbirth by expectant mothers.

Having such a supportive network within the Hypnobirthing Association is BRILLIANT. . .I have never felt so happy and excited about everything in my life. . . definitely doing the right thing.

For Mothers

As a mother you have come to the best place to find your Hypnobirthing teacher. All of our members have undertaken and passed the full Hypnobirthing Teacher Training course. We believe that teaching Hypnobirthing is a privilege, and our Hypnobirthing teachers will go beyond the training they give in order to support you. We understand that you will want the best for your baby, and The Hypnobirthing Association supplies you with top class professional teachers.

Hypnobirthing is by far the best antenatal programme. It is a wonderfully put together course, the scripts are second to none and Katharine Graves’s book is wonderful and loved by couples.
