Hypnobirthing is logical, simple and proven to work.
5 Week Hypnobirthing & Birth Preparation Course with Alexis Ozmen at LOOSEYoga
By training your mind to view things differently, using linguistic programming and the power of suggestion, you can begin to develop a positive regard for childbirth which will have a profound effect on you and your baby. Nothing can promise the perfect birth – but we know that hypnobirthing always makes a difference … and usually a very big difference.
Based on the world renowned KG Hypnobirthing methods, and delivered by Alexis Ozmen (experienced antenatal educator, breastfeeding specialist, birth doula and hypnobirthing teacher – trained under a Royal College of Midwives accredited teacher training programme) this comprehensive birth preparation course with The Nest will help you discover the tools to give birth gently, calmly and in greater comfort.
Over the five weeks, we will explore the physiology of birth and look at the power of your unconscious mind; we will discuss the ways in which your body changes during pregnancy, labour and birth. We will learn how to place ourselves into a deep state of relaxation and practice ‘up’ and ‘down’ breathing techniques as we develop a deep understanding of how we can use the powerful connect between mind and body to birth our babies with confidence. We will look at the ‘what ifs’ of birth and explore ways in which we can get the most out of the system we will find ourselves in by paying attention to the decisions we will be asked to make and the impact these may have our experience of childbirth . We will also look at the role of the birth partner and how they can become an anchor for support as you birth your baby.
In addition, you will get to know other expectant parents on the same journey as you and will likely remain lifelong friends with some, if not all, of them!
