Group Antenatal Course

Online course just £265

In person course (back soon) £295

A group course offers you the opportunity to get to know other expectant parents. When working as a group, topics are explored & great discussions are had, it’s wonderful to bounce ideas. My groups consist of a maximum of 6 couples which creates a more intimate, private space, allowing the time for everyone to ask questions & work on your skills. You have the guarantee of continuous message/email support right up until your baby arrives, along with great resources & information along the way. If you wish to have a 2nd birth partner with you on the course then please let me know in advance so I can ensure there is space

NOTE: All courses are currently being offered online so you are able to learn & relax in the comfort/safety of your own home. All course materials will be sent out to you via Royal Mail in advance & if you are local to me in Surrey you will still have access to my book library

  • 10 hours of tuition with me taught over a 4 week period (4 sessions – 2.5 hours per session)

Private 1-2-1 Antenatal Course – £495 

A one to one private course is ideal if you are looking for a more personal and bespoke birth preparation experience. This option can be tailored to your personal needs and requirements, especially if you have particular areas/subjects you would like extra support with or would like to work on. This option also works well if you would feel more confident asking questions & learning without others in a group setting or if you would struggle to fit in weekly sessions at the same time due to childcare, shift patterns or other commitments. When booking a private course, there are no set dates or times. I have the flexibility to offer you various times and days to suit you. There is a huge benefit to working one to one with me as we can adapt & focus more on specific areas important to you

Fee includes – 10 hours tuition, education from an experienced, supportive practitioner, course guide, affirmation cards, goodie bag, audio tracks, personal support between classes & continued support once you have completed your course, right up until your baby is born

Course layout – 10 hours or tuition spread over either 3 or 4 sessions, depending on what works for you

If you would like a second birth partner to attend then they are more than welcome either in person or online

TO BOOK – A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required upon booking to secure your place. Following this payment you will be sent your course forms. As soon as your forms are returned I will begin preparing for you course & tailor each session to meet your needs. The remaining amount of £395 is to be paid in full 14 days prior to your first class, unless you make your booking less than 14 days prior to our first session. In which case full payment is required upon booking. Upon arrival at your first class you will receive your folder, book, audio tracks, affirmation cards & Lemon Tree goodies

Group courses are both taught over 4 lessons for 4 consecutive weeks. This is so that you have plenty of time to practice new skills, ask questions & absorb everything you will learn. I understand this timeframe or layout doesn’t suit everyone which is why a private course can be arranged to suit you. 

The ideal time to start is between 20 & 30 weeks pregnant, however it’s never too late or too early to learn. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need to discuss condensing a course if you are near the end of your pregnancy. I offer a FREE 20 minute phone call to chat through everything with no obligation to book. Finding the right practitioner for you is important which is why I offer this call

For more information about what we will cover during a Hypnobirthing antenatal course, please see FAQ’s section.

Did you know that both a mother and a father are entitled to take time off to attend antenatal appointments and birth preparation classes?

The information below is taken from www.gov.uk. You might wish to have a look online and check with your employer for more information on what you may be entitled to –

Pregnant employees have 4 main legal rights:

  • Paid time off for antenatal care
  • Maternity leave
  • Maternity pay or maternity allowance
  • Protection against unfair treatment, discrimination or dismissal

‘Antenatal care’ doesn’t just mean medical appointments – it can also include antenatal or parenting classes if they’ve been recommended by a doctor or midwife.

Employers can’t change a pregnant employee’s contract terms & conditions without agreement – if they do they are in breach of contract.

Employers must give pregnant employees time off for antenatal care and pay their normal rate for this time off. The father or pregnant woman’s partner has the right to unpaid time off work to go to 2 antenatal appointments.

If you are self-employed you may be eligible for 39 weeks Maternity Allowance. You need to have paid Class 2 National Insurance for at least 13 of the 66 weeks before your baby’s due date along with meeting other criteria. If this applies to you, you may be eligible to receive £145.18 per week for 39 weeks.
