Hypnobirthing with The Positive Birth Company
Giving birth is powerful but so am I!
The Positive Birth Company is on a mission to make hypnobirthing accessible for all. We are committed to empowering women around the world – and their birth partners – to create positive birth experiences and supporting women in pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Hypnobirthing is a logical approach to childbirth. The tools and techniques you will learn on a course are hugely beneficial for Mums, birth partners and babies! You will find the relaxation techniques you practice in pregnancy can be used not only for birth but life in general.
At The Positive Birth Company we passionately believe that birth experience matters. Many studies have shown that a positive birth experience has a profound impact on maternal psychological and emotional wellbeing and enables women to embark on motherhood feeling confident, strong and capable. This is why hypnobirthing is for all births; a course will equip you with the skills needed to navigate your birth, whether that be at home, hospital or in theatre, feeling empowered and in control.
The Positive Birth Company was founded by Siobhan Miller in 2014 and now runs group hypnobirthing classes each month in Twickenham, South-West London, Newton Abbot, Devon (for those in Torbay and Exeter), Birmingham and Brighton. For anyone unable to get to a group class there is also the option of the digital pack!
My name is Siobhan and I’m a mum to three boys. My Hypnobirthing journey began in 2014 when pregnant with my second child. Having had a relatively difficult birth with my first child (lengthy induction and forceps delivery in theatre), I was determined to do what I could to make this birth experience a more positive one. I enrolled on a Hypnobirthing course and attended group classes with my partner. After the first session we were converted to this logical and natural approach to childbirth. Hypnobirthing, contrary to what it sounds like, is grounded in scientific theory and so we came to understand how birth worked from a physiological perspective. Most importantly we learnt what we could do to ensure the necessary cocktail of hormones and muscles required to birth a baby were able to do their job uninhibited.
The Positive Birth Company Digital Pack is a fully comprehensive online hypnobirthing course, meaning you can access this program of antenatal education whenever and wherever you choose*. The course is designed to ensure you are fully informed, empowered to make the best decisions for you and your baby and armed with practical tools you can use to remain calm and relaxed throughout your birth.
The Positive Birth Company Digital Pack includes 6+ hours of video content, 4 MP3s to download, a course notes booklet in PDF format (created with birth partners in mind), a birth preferences template for you to complete plus access to a private Facebook group where you can get support and advice as well as read and share positive birth stories.
