How is this hypnobirthing approach flexible and personalised?
The Confident Childbirth method is only offered by fully qualified hypnotherapists who understand anxiety and emotional disorders. As therapists, we are able to personalise a plan for each mum-to-be to help her achieve her specific goals.
You and your baby are unique! Unlike some hypnobirthing courses, this approach is totally flexible and tailored to you. We’ll work to your specific goals whatever they are.
I offer different types of packages so you can choose which level of support you want. Plus we can be flexible about when you book your sessions.
