Birth Affinity Midwife Led Birth Preparation Courses

In addition to Natal Hypnotherapy workshops, Birth Affinity are more than able to provide preparation for any area of pregnancy and birth that you wish to learn more about -  from hospital birth to breastfeeding and more! See below for some examples, or contact us with your specific requirements.

Natal hypnotherapy Birth Partners feel more confident!

Professional, caring and non-judgemental - with over 11 years experience providing antenatal care and classes you can trust Birth Affinity to provide a class that is just right for you!

At Birth Affinity, we recognise how important it is to ensure that birth partners are as well prepared for their role as birthing women are for theirs!  For this reason we aim to run classes at times convenient for you both to attend.  Evenings or weekends, intensive or over the space of a week or so - whatever suits you best!


We also appreciate how you want to know what is relevant to YOU!  Why spend your precious time before the birth in classes that have little relevance to your situation?  This is why we individually tailor our courses to your specific requirements.

Expert Support for Natural Birth Choices Homebirth Preparation

At Birth Affinity we recognise how difficult it can sometimes be to receive good support and advice for having your baby at home, not to mention finding parentcraft specifically aimed at homebirthing Mums.  Well search no more! With experience in caring for women having homebirths and personal experience of birthing babies at home, we are ideally placed to help you prepare for your homebirth too!


With a firm focus on the normality of childbirth, we explore labour and birth at home, with topics that can include

  • self help methods,
  • optimal fetal positioning,
  • positions that help labour and birth - and why they help,
  • waterbirth,
  • options for birthing the placenta, including lotus births 
  • pelvic floor exercises and why they are important,  
  • minor complaints in a newborn's life, such as sticky eyes, and how to manage them.

We also like to provoke discussion around what constitutes a "normal" birth and what intervention is or isn't, so that we can really focus in on what you want to acheive from your birth experience.  Includes assistance to write your own birth plan.
