Our Course Types

Group Classes

Our relaxed and informal group classes are an excellent way to discover how to have the positive, calm birth of your dreams. We currently hold these classes in Faversham, Maidstone, Folkestone and Margate. You'll meet like minded people and get to hang out with one of our lovely, often highly amusing, and definitely very knowledgeable teachers. We keep the groups small (2-6 couples) so that they are personal and there is plenty of time for lots info and a good chat too, no questions are off limits. 

During the course you and your birth partner will learn: 

  • To birth confidently & without fear

  • How to use hypnosis in birth (hint - it’s not as hippy dippy as you might think!)

  • How to use relaxation & breathing techniques

  • How your birthing body works

  • How to approach birth positively and the huge difference this makes

  • plus much, much more

 

Your investment includes:

  • The Calm Birth School book by Suzy Ashworth, 

  • 5 relaxation MP3s, 

  • Course workbook

  • Our soon to be legendary goodie bags. 

  • Access to our ever expanding Facebook groups and members area packed full of resources!

And of course you get a bucket load of your teachers time too. We LOVE what we do and we want to teach you all we know and then some. Make use of us - we'd love to hear your questions up to the birth and afterwards - your birth story, help with breastfeeding and all about how parenting is going once your little one has arrived. The group classes are held over three sessions of 3 hours. See below for all the upcoming dates.

Introduction to Hypnobirthing Workshop

Want to find out more about this hypnobirthing stuff before you commit to a full course? Then our introductory workshops could be just your thing. Specially designed to give mums and their birth partners a taste of the excellent antenatal education and deep relaxation skills we offer at Kent Hypnobirthing. We'll explain how our honest, logical, science based approach will put you in control of your birth. No magic, just good old common sense.

"A real feeling of being part of a supportive community" - Ruth & Ian

"I learnt more about pregnancy and labour than I ever thought possible" -Will and Sarah

"I want to tell you that I was so happy and excited after the taster course - the teaching was inspired and down-to-earth. It really was so special and just the right thing for us. Thank you for a lovely morning *and* lovely cookies!" - Rebecca and Seb

 

At the workshop we will:

  • Explain how this hypnobirthing stuff works

  • Bust a load of myths around your birth choices 

  • Explain some of the breathing techniques hypnobirthing is so well known for

  • Explain how you can use your mind to ensure that you have the most positive experience possible for whatever birth you have.

  • Also the cookies are genuinely amazing. 

The workshop is a brilliant opportunity to ask questions, meet other like minded parents, and road test some of our hypnobirthing techniques. It's informative, useful, and often pretty funny, you'll benefit from this 1 hour workshop packed full of positivity, expert knowledge and parent-to-parent support.

Our workshops often book up a couple of weeks in advance so please book early to avoid disappointment.

These workshops are FREE and birth companions also welcome to attend!

Upcoming Workshops

September 22nd in Faversham, Apotheca Yoga Studio 10.30 - 11.30

Private Classes

Do group courses seem a little bit overwhelming? Or perhaps you'd like the opportunity to ask all the questions? Perhaps you had a difficult first birth and you'd like to really explore what happened? Are there no group classes in your area? Then private courses may be just the thing for you. 

"The course was wonderfully executed, and we were able to fully engage with the hypnobirthing techniques in the comfort of our own home. Hypnobirthing not only prepared me for labour and birth, but it has also enabled me to take on motherhood, energised, calm and with a confidence and trust in my ability as a new parent."

 

All the benefits of the group course apply plus the sessions are taught in yours or your teachers home. Private courses are a wonderfully personal and intimate experience for those who really want to tailor the course to their needs,  The course usually runs over three x 3 hour sessions to suit your specific circumstances and to meet your unique needs. Timings are flexible and can be arranged at a time that is most convenient for you (we can make the course longer, shorter - whatever it is you need), Available from 20 weeks + of pregnancy. 

During the course you and your birth partner will learn: 

  • To birth confidently & without fear

  • How to use hypnosis in birth (hint - it’s not as hippy dippy as you might think!)

  • How to use relaxation & breathing techniques

  • How your birthing body works

  • How to approach birth positively and the huge difference this makes

  • plus much, much more

 

Your investment includes:

  • The Calm Birth School book by Suzy Ashworth, 

  • 5 relaxation MP3s, 

  • Course workbook

  • Our soon to be legendary goodie bags. 

  • Access to our ever expanding Facebook groups and members area packed full of resources!

Investment = £450 or 3 monthly payments of £150

Contact us to enquire about a private course.

 

Intensive Classes

If you're reading all of this and thinking this all sounds great but there's no way I can find time for this - perhaps you or your partners work schedule won't work with our group classes or maybe you're in the last few weeks of your pregnancy and just have not got the days left to fit a whole course in - well don't give up just yet! Our Intensive Course may be just what you need.

Taught in one 4 hour session we'll teach you the foundations of hypnobirthing, so that you can feel prepared and ready for your birth no matter how long you have to go. We send you off with lots of homework to ensure you are getting as much from your session as possible.  You also, of course, get access to one of our lovely teachers too so can really tailor your class around your needs. 

Investment -  £285 or 3 monthly payments of £95

Online Course with The Calm Birth School

While we think the benefits of an in person course are amazing - being able to ask questions, tailor the course to your specific needs, support of your teacher, meeting other like minded mums and dads and ongoing support to name a few of them. We realise it's not always possible to make the sessions and we'd hate for you to miss out just because of lack of time.

The Calm Birth School Online Course could be the perfect answer! Click here to find out more about this video course by the lovely Suzy Ashworth, author of the very same Calm Birth School book we use in our classes.
