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

|Which hypnobirthing company? |
We all essentially teach the same thing. Whichever you choose, the key to success is your commitment to regular ongoing practise in your own time. A longer or more expensive course doesn't in itself improve results (I've taught them!) My approach is deliberately straight to the point, no nonsense ~ you'll be up and running with your practise immediately. This is Cornwall's longest running hypnobirthing course, and over the past 10+ years my families have achieved amazing results ~ read our hypnobirthing stories. I have a NEW flexible fee structure to maximise affordability, see below.
"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
|About me... |
I'm a hypnotherapist, birth doula and childbirth educator with 16 years of experience in the childbirth field (including 2+ years catching lots of babies as a London trainee midwife). I've also had a drug-free home waterbirth using hypnobirthing (full bio)
Private hypnobirthing workshops are usually held at your Cornwall home or holiday accommodation. I bring everything I need ~ just provide a quiet space to chat and relax. Or you're welcome to visit my home in Praze-an-Beeble. Hypnobirthing classes in Norfolk (and elsewhere) are also available upon request, subject to availability.
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 welcome to book any time.
Please book your dates early to avoid disappointment ~ there's no deposit to pay. Choose between:
- 2 x 2/3 hour workshops
- 1 x single 4/5 hour intensive
Standard tariff (inc expenses)
- Cornwall: £150** (or £25 online)
- Cornwall doula clients = free
- Norfolk: £195
- Elsewhere: enquire below
**If you can't meet my full fee I'm happy to work within your budget (minimum £55 + petrol)
|In-person or online? |
It's up to you... Home visits can increase your motivation to invest time into your practise. Practical demonstrations enable you to try out your hypnobirthing tools under expert guidance. My workshops also include lots of personal consultation, e.g. discussing your individual needs and choices. Some birth partners might be more likely to get involved in home workshops.
"I cannot recommend this highly enough. Alice's hypnobirthing workshops helped me have a really wonderful birth (despite being unexpectedly induced!) and I'm certain that not only I benefited but also my partner and our little boy" Rae Jones, Helston
Your workshops are most beneficial when birth partner(s) can attend. If this isn't possible it's still effective on your own (they can catch up with the resources online).
Please provide a selection of your ideal dates and times. I'm happy to begin teaching any time from approx 9am to 8pm; 7 days a week.
I'll get back to you within a few hours to confirm my availability. Or give me a text or call on 07790 304219 (please read your T&Cs)
