And where better to learn, than in sublime surroundings of The Grove Hotel?
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a set of tools and techniques which make birth a more pain-free and enjoyable experience. It is based on science, a philosophy and a mindset which means that your birth will be more simple, gentle, and calm, whichever path your birth journey takes. It is a pain relief technique whereby women use a blend of self-hypnosis, relaxation, breathing techniques, active birth, and preparation to allow them to overcome pain, and where birth partners offer an important supportive role, so that each couple can look forward to their birthing day with expectation and excitement. It is, quite simply, better birthing.

“Jackie’s birthing knowledge is invaluable. She led us towards giving our baby Freddie the best start possible, with the most beautiful calm, controlled birth. The weekend itself was blissful; award winning food, a swimming pool and right next to the beach. Perfect.” - Sarah Tyler
