HYPNOBIRTHING & BIRTH PREPARATION
1-DAY COURSE WITH CHERIE LATHEY
Next course: Sunday 19 November 2023 (10am – 4:30pm)
This hypnobirthing day course is led by Cherie Lathey. It has been designed to equip you and your birthing partner with the tools to empower your birthing experience. This enables you to approach your birth feeling calm and confident.
Cherie is also a pregnancy yoga teacher and has supported thousands of pregnant women over the years. For this reason, in addition to hypnobirthing techniques, she will also incorporate practical yoga sessions for both movement and relaxation for pregnancy and birth.
WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?
Hypnobirthing is a gentle effective therapy using auto-hypnosis alongside breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques. This helps the mind and the body to work together, helping you to achieve a positive birth experience regardless of how you choose to birth your baby. We use gentle language and words to help let go of negative thoughts and experiences. Replacing negative thoughts with positive ones, we create a positive mindset. As a result, this causes a positive impact on mother, birth partner and baby.
WHEN SHOULD I START HYPNOBIRTHING?
You can start at any time. However, many women choose to start between 28-32 weeks of pregnancy. This allows time to practice and feel confident with the techniques learnt. The more you practise, the easier it becomes to drop into deep relaxation.
The Yoga Mama course takes place in small groups at our lovely, relaxed studio space within the Putney Clinic. Small groups allow for individual attention and, moreover, are a space to meet other parents-to-be.
