(If you wish follow me on INSTAGRAM brenda_communitymidwife)

There are TWO different teaching formats which hopefully will facilitate the demands of each modern woman!



                                          7 HypnoBirthing tracks given out, with book files and music

Format 1. Four consecutive Saturday mornings 10am to 1pm over the course of a month. Refresher class (class 5) at 38 weeks included.

Format 2.  2 Full days (foundation course) on Sundays in Emo and Saturdays in Naas, a week apart, from 22 weeks on…. with 2 refresher / motivational class FROM 36/37 weeks. Couples can come to this ‘refresh and revise’ class closer to end of their pregnancy. This is important to re affirm their new perception of birth. This format is now proving to be my most popular choice of class as it can entail** 4 CLASSES IN TOTAL UNLIKE OTHER COURSES. Also this course can be claimed back against your medical insurance as it is facilitated by a registered midwife with the NMBI.  See class dates below

Class content-

(HypnoBirthing techniques + Active birth class/Full Ante-Natal Class information included! No need to go to another antenatal class)

Over the HypnoBirthing course you will learn What is HypnoBirthing about? It is about understanding how our brain works, the power of our wonderful imagination and working with the potential of how our bodies work; changing our mindset around birth; how to tap in to our birthing hormones and and change our perception around birth for the better. You will learn sports psychology techniques for pregnancy and birth. You will learn how to use the power of Hypnotherapy and hypnosis. When starting out with hypnosis it is usually effective when done with a practitioner. This is because Hypnotherapists are trained and experienced to provide the right hypnotic tone, deepeners, pacing, cues and suggestions. Experiencing first hand deep relaxations in class will give you the know how on how to practice at home successfully, learning to re-wire your brain from fear/anxiety to confidence. You will learn how partners/husbands can best support Mothers -to -be, in a fun and supportive environment with other expectant parents. This is also an active birth class, looking at baby positioning, comfort measures, mindfulness, breathing techniques, imagery and visualisations. Recovery tips. Learning to work with the sensations of labour together. Waterbirth. Discussions also on other pharmalogical analgesias. You will learn how HypnoBirthing works in terms of navigating the hospital system, the use of evidence -based practice to help support your birthing choices. Promoting Mother- led care which supports ownership of her birth.

What is normal labour? How can I best help myself? Why are there so many induction of labours? How can I avoid an induction? What happens if its a caesarian section? a breech presentation?

Will my hospital/midwife/consultant support my wishes?. What is low risk? High risk? Will my partner know how to support me? Will my partner know what comfort measures to use and when? All these are explained so that couples are very informed. Who can tell which way a birthing path can take but working with the HypnoBirthing philosopy couples are given support (phoning up Brenda and asking for a second oponion is very common and these phoncalls are welcome!) and can shift the odds in their favour towards a more relaxed positive birthing experience.

You will see videos of women giving birth calmly, instinctively and confidently at every class.

What about complementary therapies?   Acupressure,Homeopathy, Reflexology.  Absolutely!

You also receive 7 HYPNOBIRTHING CD’S /SCRIPTS to work with and a copy of the HypnoBirthing book by Marie Mongan. The book can be posted out prior to the course starting so you can have it read and fully participate in the relaxations and techniques taught in class. Care of the newborn, feeding choices, breastfeeding (avoiding the initial pitfalls!) etc, how to look after you new born baby.  A HypnoBirthing Mother normally comes in with her baby to talk about her experience that she had in the hospital.

You will have continuous support to the end of your pregnancy. If any concerns arise towards the end of pregnancy support will be given by Brenda.

These classes reach far beyond the birth for Mother, Father and baby.The techniques learned are found to be invaluable in many other situations in life. My aim is to provide a nurturing environment for expectant parents to learn, to explore their feelings, hopes and fears around birth, giving confidence rise to their inherent ability to give birth comfortably and gently. Mothers can free themselves of harmful emotions that lead to pain and unyielding muscles. These classes are an amazing journey of growth where Mother and Father become aware of how much they can contribute and the importance of family bonding
