Antenatal classes

“We attended Jackie’s antenatal classes and had an amazing labour and birth where we felt confident and empowered” Jake Humphries (BBC and BT Sports Presenter) and Harriet Humphries

The Birthing Toolkit workshop in Norwich with Hypnobirthing Essentials has been carefully created to harness all of Jackie’s core birthing practices into one manageable and affordable 5-hour workshop. This includes breathing techniques, active birth movements, deep self-relaxation tools, massage methods, positioning baby for birth and practical guidance about when to go to the hospital and even how to sit in the car; plus much much more!

What Does The Workshop Include?

The Birthing Tool Kit uses the essentials of HypnoBirthing. The idea of HypnoBirthing is that through simple self-hypnosis, specific breathing and deep relaxation exercises, Hypnobirthing can lead you towards a calm and relaxed birth.

The Birthing Tool Kit also answers the questions: When do you go to the hospital? How do you use your body to help you birth? What can you do to help if your baby gets stuck or your birth slows down?
The Birthing Tool Kit covers all this and more.

“My husband and I attended the Birthing Toolkit and I have to say I am no longer feeling anxious about giving birth to our little boy. I feel I now have the understanding to fully embrace it. Jackie is brilliant she made the afternoon fun but informative and I would recommend it to anyone who is feeling slightly anxious about birth” Lisa Allsop


Why Choose Us?

We offer a complete walk-through of the birthing journey. We combine Hypnobirthing essentials with Jackie’s 10 years of experience working in Hypnobirthing, childbirth education, pregnancy yoga, pregnancy massage and massage for labour. It will give your birth partner a role in labour. This means they can actively share the birth experience as a part of it, rather than simply an onlooker.

Our aim is for you to both feel calm and confident in your birth, leading towards a more empowered, better birth experience. The Birthing Tool Kit is a really informative and fun session in a friendly environment.

We believe this birth education class will help both of you feel ready for the big day, both emotionally and physically. We believe it so much, that if either of you are unhappy with the workshop we’ll refund your money. So far, in ten years, this has never happened.

Let us help you both enter birthing with a feeling of knowledge, control, and empowerment so that you can enjoy the birth of your baby.
