Hypnobirthing Classes in Cornwall / London / Norfolk / everywhere...
Practising hypnobirthing during pregnancy enables you to increase confidence and reduce anxiety. The more relaxed, positive and confident you feel, the quicker, more comfortable and calmer your baby's birth is likely to be, however you give birth¹

Private hypnobirthing workshops are usually held at your Cornwall, London or Norfolk home or holiday accommodation. I also travel elsewhere throughout the UK - please send your initial enquiry using the form below.
If you schedule workshops to begin from around 25 to 30 weeks, you'll probably be more focused to practise the techniques regularly. If you're full term the course is still worthwhile. If you're in the early months (or planning to conceive) and terrified of the thought of giving birth, you're very welcome to book any time.
Please book your dates early to avoid disappointment - there's no deposit for Cornwall bookings. Weekend sessions in particular tend to get busy.
- 2 x 2 hour workshops (allow up to three hours each visit)
- 1 x single four to five hour intensive workshop
Why choose this course?
I'm a clinical hypnotherapist, certified childbirth educator, birth doula and mother. I've worked in the childbirth field for 16 years, 'caught' many babies as a trainee midwife in London, and have given birth myself using hypnobirthing (more about me)
Most hypnobirthing training courses award a certificate after 5 days. My 12 month hypnotherapy diploma built upon my experience (and previous degree in psychology and counselling), and complies with the national occupational hypnotherapy standards. As such I'm a member of the CNHC - a parliamentary accredited register recommended by the Royal College of Midwives and Department of Health.
I'm recommended by 100% of postnatal survey respondents. Check out our five star Facebook and Google hypnobirthing reviews, with more on our hypnobirthing stories page and here
"Alice is fantastic at what she does! We saw Alice in person twice, but also felt safe in knowing we could always ask her for advice at any time during the pregnancy. Our birth was amazing... If you want to be as prepared as you can for birth, and want it to be a natural and empowering experience, I would highly recommend Alice!!" Jemma Hoare, Truro
