This course has been lovingly designed for first time parents who would like to feel informed and prepared for birth and life with a new baby.

The course is delivered over four weekly sessions and is led by Aimee a Registered Nurse, NHS Health Visitor and hypnobirthing teacher.

The classes are held in a comfortable home from home

location in my cosy, purpose built, garden studio in Bolton.

Each group is intentionally limited to a maximum five couples to ensure you have plenty of time and opportunities to ask any questions.

 

"Hypnobirthing not only enabled me to go through the majority of labour with little pain relief, just the use of breathing and relaxation techniques, it had also given Matt so much confidence knowing more about the labour and the ways in which he can help me through it." Mummy to baby Rufus.

Natalie and Joe  ~ First Time Parents 

" The course helped my husband to be really supportive and practical during my birth. It gave me so much confidence to ask more questions of the midwives and doctors and listen to my own instincts. It really changed my experience of birth and supported me to stay at home way into my labour.  Aimee is such a warm and knowledgeable person, who makes you feel really comfortable. Aimee prepared a beautiful hypnobirthing pack for us and shared some really valuable resources. 

I would highly recommend karma babies! Thank you Aimee!"
