Hypnobirthing Classes - what’s involved and how does it work?

I teach hypnobirthing classes in 2 ways:


Private classes in your own home (in Dublin and surrounding counties) Group Courses with up to 6 couples (in a Dublin location or outside of Dublin)


No matter which option you chose the course outline is the same:


  • 4 classes of The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme - a comprehensive antenatal course and hypnobirthing course in one!

  • 1 Breastfeeding preparation class Each module of the 5 is 2.5 hours in duration so the total course duration is 12 hours!  


Prices for both options include:

  • 12 hours class/mentoring time  

  • your Wise Hippo text book

  • 6 downloadable MP3s which you have forever (not an app that expires when you stop paying for it - don’t forget to stop paying for it by the way or it keeps charging you!!)

  • my full support by phone/text/email if and when its needed

  • additional handouts and gifts in your welcome pack!

What to expect in a typical hypnobirthing class: 
  • information on evidence-based best practice in birth 

  • information on what to expect from and how to navigate the Irish maternity system 

  • information on informed consent and understanding your rights 

  • information on how and where to empower yourself with knowledge

  • birth stories and experiences from previous clients

  • videos of births

  • fun

  • laughter

  • massage and other useful things your partner can do to help 

  • birth balls (gym ball/swiss ball) - if you don’t have one yet  - get one!

  • excitement  




No matter which option you decide on, the course itself is only one element of your hypnobirthing journey.  Commitment to practicing the techniques and to doing your own evidence-based reading and research are key to ensuring your empowering positive birth experience.

Private classes in your own home:


  • The class comes to you, so no need to travel, get parking, get a babysitter etc!

  • Classes can be taken at a frequency that suits you and your partner (i.e. weekly, every 2 weeks, monthly etc.)

  • Can be taken at a time and day that suits you both  - weekday evenings and/or weekends morning or afternoon

  • Tailored classes to your needs

  • A private, safe, open and comfortable place to discuss your own feelings about giving birth and to work through any previously difficult experiences

  • Full support throughout your pregnancy by phone/text/email helping you through any fears, events that might crop up unexpectedly

  • Can be done anywhere in your home!  I bring everything I need for the class, so you just need to provide a spot where you are most comfortable.  


Cost €450 (payment in 2 installments optional)

Note: Areas outside a 50km radius of me will incur an additional milage charge.
