Babies in Waiting Hypnobirthing

Perhaps you have stumbled across Babies in Waiting by accident or may be you have been directed to our website based on a friend's recommendation. Why should you choose Babies in Waiting over other antenatal course providers? What are the benefits of doing this specific course?

We invest TIME.

Signing up to a Babies in Waiting course demonstrates your COMMITMENT to the reconditioning of the subconsious. Our courses are all four weeks long with each session lasting 2.5 hours. This is for a very special reason. It takes time and effort to replace negativity and fear with positivity and relaxation. We realise that by commiting to spending time learning about the power of the mind and slowly reconditioning the subconscious, you WILL have a better birth outcome. This is such an important task, it cannot be rushed. Also during this time you have the opportunity to digest the information you are given and importantly practice at home the techniques that you have been taught. If there are any questions, you have the opportunity to ask your Babies in Waiting teacher to go over things again with you at your next session. Your baby is so important and their birth is their first experience of life out of the womb. It is worth investing your time to make sure your birth is the best it can possibly be. The four weeks also enables friendships to be formed within group courses that create a network of support moving forwards.

We TRUST nature.

Babies in Waiting are very proud to teach a course that puts full trust in the power of the mind and body connection. We are passionate about delivering an original Hypnobirthing course whereby the philosophy of giving nature 100% chance is followed. We teach the laws of the mind and the power of positive suggestion. We know that in the absence of fear, birth is a beautiful, calm experience. Our course content is fully designed to educate and empower the expectant couple. We focus solely on the POSITIVE aspects of birth. To focus on negative 'what if' scenarios only creates doubt and fear in the body's abilities. It is precisely this doubt and fear that can create problems within a normal, natural labour.

HIGH QUALITY COURSE and SUPPORT.

Babies in Waiting give each couple a bespoke Pregnancy Journal to interact with and then to treasure as a keepsake. We aim to enhance the bonding experience with baby and of course with each other. In addition to this, there are six audios which are included within the course cost.

Our courses are all taught in home from home locations with comfortable chairs, relaxing music and refreshments. We know that when a couple feel at ease, they learn more, ask more questions and personalise their experience. The Babies in Waiting support is ongoing throughout pregnancy and life with baby. We like to nurture our couples for as long as they want us to be a part of their parenting journey.

The Babies in Waiting course is an investment in time and money but there is nothing more worthwhile than investing in your baby whilst they are developing and growing. When a Mother feels calm, relaxed, empowered and supported she enjoys pregnancy. Her baby is literally growing within a happier body which in turn impacts upon the way in which they grow and how their personality develops. When a couple plan and visualise how they want their birth to be, they are much more likely to make it a reality. Therefore, their baby is born more calmly, peacefully and naturally giving their little one a great start to life as a newborn. For Babies in Waiting, there is nothing more important than pregnancy and birth because it is the start of absolutely everything. The benefits of a beautiful birth are well worth the investment.

Firstly you will explore why there is so much negativity surrounding birth and why so many people fear it. Unfortunately newspapers, soap operas and reality TV shows have sensationalised. Often horror stories regarding labour are shared by well meaning friends and family members instead of the beauty of birth. Babies in Waiting will teach you how fear of birth can negatively impact the body during labour. You will learn relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques to help you enjoy your pregnancy more and prepare for your amazing birth experience. By the end of the course, you will have thought about your options regarding your place of birth, birth support and birth plan. Your birth partner will be more aware of their role during labour and birth and how to support you. The course empowers couples to plan calm, confident and beautiful birth experiences.

Yes definitely. If for any reason you are unable to attend a session then please arrange a catch up session with your Babies in Waiting teacher.

While reading a book certainly can change some attitudes and provide important information, it is not nearly as beneficial or successful as attending a four week course.
Firstly, the opportunity to listen to a teacher and interact with them is an extremely valuable process. You can personalise your experience by asking questions about your particular pregnancy. Our courses are also designed for a range of different learning styles. Secondly, it takes times to recondition the subconscious and to internalise the techniques. This is why we hold our courses over four weeks. Lastly, the ongoing support that you receive from your Babies in Waiting teacher throughout your pregnancy and beyond makes all the difference to boosting your positivity and confidence.

Yes definitely. This course is designed for both parents.

The optimum time to start the course is around 20 weeks pregnant. This gives you plenty of chance to recondition the subconscious and practise the techniques. If however you are nearing the end of your pregnancy, please do not worry you have not left it too late. Your Babies in Waiting teacher will do their best to accommodate your needs.

Babies in Waiting Pregnancy Relaxation Sessions

You will be invited to talk to the other expectant Mummies about the theme of the week and how you have felt during your pregnancy. If you do not wish to participate it is absolutely fine. After some conscious off loading time, you will be asked to get comfortable, close your eyes and listen to the relaxation script. While you are relaxed, your baby receives your endorphins (happy hormones). You will also be taking on board positive suggestions subconsciously to support your pregnancy.

A block of four sessions is £40 and from 37 weeks it is £10 pay as you go.

Contact the teacher that covers the area that you live in. If you are uncertain of who this is, please get in touch with info@babiesinwaiting.co.uk. The relevant teacher will take payment from you in order to secure your place on the sessions.
