Welcome! If you have clicked through to this page, you probably have a few questions;
Where is it?
In the beautiful Maqam Centre, Wrentham Avenue, London, NW10 3HJ
Who is running it? What do they know?
I am a Clinical Psychologist who has specialised in working with parents and families since my training almost 15 years ago. You might have in your mind that I believe you 'should' have a certain kind of birth and that is the opposite of what I think.
My job is to share information with you about birth, about the connection between your mind and your body and how you can use different techniques to help you and your baby with birth. These are applicable whether you attend as a single parent or in a couple, with support from a doula or a friend and whether you birth vaginally or abdominally, with medical intervention or without.
I aim to do this in a non-judgemental, clear and calm way so that you have the knowledge and ability to make the best decisions for you and your family at the time. And I don't believe anyone has all the answers but if you ask me a question I will share what I know, show you where to get more information and use my network to help in anyway I can.
And the bonus of the course running over 5 weeks is that you are able to reflect on the information shared in between sessions, return with questions or comments and even better, have 5 weeks of relaxation exercises that always helped me sleep better!
What is included?
The five-week series includes HypnoBirthing book, audio tracks, class notes, visualisation posters, birth preferences template and you can contact me with any questions both before and after birth.
You are invited to bring a birthing companion to classes and whomever you have chosen, including your partner, sister, mother or a friend will be most welcome.
The classes are also a great opportunity to meet like-minded people in the local area.
Please click on the "Contact Me" link to email me for more information.
If fewer than three couple have registered for the class I reserve the right to cancel the session. in this case, any monies paid would be refunded.
**If you are very near your birthing time and are unable to attend class for five weeks, please enquire about a private course.**
