A great option if you are looking to meet other expectant parents in a relaxed and sociable environment.
Group sizes are small - no more than five couples at a time to enable plenty of discussion and interaction.
I suggest attending anytime from around 20 weeks of pregnancy although it is never too late to come!
All the classes take place in beautiful Bourton on the Water in a comfortable teaching room. It is just a short stroll into the village for a break at lunchtime and there are plenty of cafes and coffee shops.
The complete course totals approximately 10 hours of teaching and takes place over two Saturdays, usually a couple of weeks apart. This is a complete antenatal course covering everything that you need to know to prepare for the birth of your baby.
For more details on exactly what's covered in the course see here.
The complete course costs £250 per couple.
The cost of the course includes:
The Little Birth Company course manual
7 different hypnobirthing MP3s for use before, during and after the birth
A lovely goody bag containing a selection of items for the birth
Membership of a supportive online Facebook community
Ongoing phone and email support from me as needed
Coffee mornings with other mums and babies after the course is over
Light refreshments on the course are provided. You might like to bring your own packed lunch or there are cafes and shops locally.
Ideally both the mother and her planned birth partner should attend both these sessions. If your birth partner can't be there for any reason feel free to bring your mum, a friend, or doula.
Private Classes If you can't make the dates on offer, or have childcare issues for older children, you could always opt for private classes. In this case I come to you at your home. If you have friends who are also expecting, I'm more than happy for you to partner up.
Hypnobirthing Workshop I do also offer an option to take a shorter 3 hour hypnobirthing essentials workshop which is ideal as a refresher or if you are really short of time. This also works if you have done antenatal classes already with another provider, although many of my clients tell me that the full course was really useful - if you're not sure which to go for, please get in touch for a chat.
Bookings Group courses run in January, March, May, September and November. Bookings are currently open for the March event, please use the online booking form below.
If you are interested in private classes, simply complete the enquiry form at the bottom of the page to contact me and I will be in touch to arrange a date.
Bookings are non refundable unless your baby is born before the class date or unless I need to cancel the course for any reason.
If you book for the group course, you may be offered a private class as an alternative for the same fee in the unlikely event that there are insufficient attendees to run the course. The private class would be offered for no additional fee.
