Watch this space for future dates

The Rocci Tree and Birth Logic Hypnobirthing are coming together to provide joint hypnobirthing and partner yoga antenatal group sessions. We aim to provide you with a comforting, relaxing and educational addition to your amazing pregnancy journey.

These Birth Preparation sessions will be held at the Forster Institute, 1A Waterloo Road, Leighton Buzzard LU7 2NR across three, 2-hour sessions.

Often around pregnancy and birth, there can be some anxiety. KG hypnobirthing uses evidence-based information and relaxation skills to help address these anxieties, to help you have the best birth for you. The hypnobirthing sessions will examine how the mind and body work together in pregnancy and labour. This will be applied to the different stages of labour to help equip you with skills to manage your birth.

We will also look at alternative pain management, birth methods and inductions of labour, with the aim to empower you with a sound knowledge base so that you feel in control of your birthing experience.

Partner yoga is a great way of learning practical skills for both of you to use during labour and birth that will help you mentally and physically prepare for the birth of your baby. Dads, you will be given the tools to help you learn how to assist with breathing and positioning, to create a happy Birth-day for you and your partner, helping you feel involved and not like a spare part! No previous yoga experience is necessary and the course is suitable for all levels of fitness.

You will be provided with a KG Hypnobirthing information pack, KG Hypnobirthing book and MP3 relaxation scripts. Plus information on yoga postures and breathing techniques to practise at home and keep in your birthing bag.

The cost for this course is £150, which includes a space for both partners, KG Hypnobirthing pack, birth positioning and preparation leaflet, and tea and cake!
