Have you ever been in a situation where you are clueless on what to do? That’s often what it feels like for your partner during childbirth.
This workshop will give your partner the confidence and ‘know how’ to best support you. It’s a priceless experience to have a stress free delivery with a supportive partner by your side.
About the Workshop
This practical workshop will simplify things as we get straight to what is required to help prepare you for the birth of your baby and give your birthing partner a chance to get involved and be there for you.
Birthing partners have an important role in supporting women in labour. This workshop will give your partner more confidence ready to go forward to the birth of your baby, in a calm and relaxed way.
Whilst you have been learning effective birthing techniques it’s just as important to get your partner up to speed so that they can support you every step of the way.
My husband is aware of a whole lot of things he did not know before. As a result, we already feel closer together and more empowered”
Your partner will learn how to support you with;
- Relaxation triggers
- Breathing techniques and to work with surges
- Massage techniques to create endorphins – your body’s own natural painkillers
- Birthing positions and movements
- And lots of practical tips!
Hypnobirthing techniques are proven to help release fear and enable you to give birth in the way you are designed to…calmly, naturally. During this Birth Preparation Hypnobirthing workshop you will practice some effective Hypnobirthing techniques to work together towards a relaxed and positive state of mind.
When to take this workshop
The bottom line is, any time before you go into labour is a good time to take this workshop, but enrolling after month 6 or 7 of your pregnancy is recommended. Even if it’s not your first pregnancy, you may want to consider attending as every labour and delivery is different, so even seasoned pros can benefit from a refresh. Keep in mind that the sooner you register, the more likely you are to ensure you have secured a place.
The workshop is suitable for all birth choices and is available to anyone who has either attended a weekly Joyful Body class or hypnobirthing course.
Wear comfortable clothing and expect to enjoy yourself!

I had the most incredible birth and entirely drug free thanks to the techniques I’d learnt in class. And the practice and confidence we gained in the couples birth prep workshop was invaluable. My fabulous supportive husband who let me lean on him squeeze his hand and he massaged my back. Even the midwives commented on how good my breathing was and it really did help me avoid the drugs. Thank you!“
