Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing Course at The Baby Academy

Locations in South Dublin, North Dublin, Cork and Galway

This course is designed to reduce fear and build confidence surrounding birth. Using techniques such as breathing and visualisation, the aim is to maximise your chances of having a calm, comfortable labour and birth, with as little pain as possible (or no pain at all!).

The course is tailored for expectant parents, who are in their second or third trimester of pregnancy. Both the mother and partner are encouraged to attend the course. Course fees are for couples only at €175. If your partner is unable to attend, you are more than welcome to come alone or to bring a friend or relative.The course runs over one day from 9.30am-4.30pm.

What do I need to bring?

All you need to bring is yourself and your partner. We will provide you with a comprehensive set of notes, so that when you return home, you have a point of reference for your pregnancy journey.

We will break for tea and coffee in the morning (that’s on us!) and for lunch in the afternoon you can either bring your own lunch or buy it in the hotel.
Please wear comfy clothes!

When should I take a Hypnobirthing Course?

Most courses start around 8-10 weeks before your baby is due, when you are around 30-32 weeks pregnant.

We recommend you attend our Hypnobirthing Course in ideally your second or third trimester. Booking early is advised as there is limited availability.

How about my partner?

Hypnobirthing courses aren’t just for mums-to-be. In fact, bringing your partner along to a class is a great way for them to feel more connected to the pregnancy, especially as they’re not the one physically carrying your little baby.

As well as preparing you for the journey from bump to baby, a hypnobirthing course can help your partner know what to expect and give them the tools to help you on your journey. They may even buy you chocolate!
