Hypnobirthing Classes

I offer both group and private classes,  following The Wise Hippo Birthing programme.

The group classes are taken in small groups with a maximum of four couples per course.

This will ensure the quality of the teaching remains of the highest level and personalised attention can be provided.

The smaller groups are perfect for conducing a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

The group course is generally taken in my modern flat in Islington/ Hackney border, easily accessible by public transport (15 mins walk to either Angel or Old Street tube stations) where drinks and light snacks will also be provided.

Private classes can also take place in the comfort of your own home (anywhere in London up to zone 6).

This is perfect if you are planning a home birth for example, or simply you don’t feel comfortable in a group setting.

The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a complete 10 hour programme that runs as 2 x 5 hrs (or 4 x 2.5 hour classes). (This can be amended on request according to individual circumstances)

The latest birth statistics for clients who have used this  programme are available to read here.
