Om Moms Hypnobirthing and Birth Preparation

Your Hypnobirthing toolbox and Birth preparation course

Hello and welcome to your Om Moms Hypnobirthing toolbox.  Firstly, a big ol’ CONGRATUATIONS on your pregnancy and on choosing to take the right steps forward in seeking a calm and comfortable pregnancy and an empowering birth. Welcome to the world of Hypnobirthing.

Why choose a Hypnobirthing course with me? Well a little about me, I am a trained KGH Hypnobirthing teacher, a training course which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives in the UK and I am also a fully qualified Yogabellies prenatal yoga teacher and a Mom, so I understand the feminine body (and most importantly the mind!)

I have adapted this course over the years to make it more relevant and up to date for modern moms to be. Think more yoga and more breathing because this is where you will find all that zen. This is an UPDATED course by The Om Moms and includes your FREE Hypnobirthing bundle of breathing, relaxations and positive affirmations both on video and audio to really experience them.  

What did Chris & Faith, and Alicia think?

I began teaching pregnancy yoga after I had my little boy as I did not have the birth I wanted. It was not how I imagined it would be or how I wanted it be. It went down a medicalised route which on reflection could have been prevented. I wanted to help others prepare as I feel I wasn’t able to. I had been to pregnancy yoga classes but no one seemed to enlighten me on what was happening and what was going to happen. Maybe this was something I should have done more about myself but after my own birth I thought that it would be good to help teach and help others. I specialised in pregnancy yoga and it became life. I studied, attended courses on all things yoga and birth. I then started looking into Hypnobirthing and realised that this was what I needed to do to help others on their pregnancy journey. This was the magic and the sparkle I could add to my pregnancy yoga classes. So, I did not use hypnobirthing to bring my little boy into the world but I wish I had and I love sharing it with others.

Your Hypnobirthing toolbox will include an element of prenatal yoga which is invaluable in pregnancy and birth. I will share my knowledge of how the mind and body connect to work together at this sensational time of life on your Hypnobirthing journey. I will help guide you through your pregnancy to help you achieve the best birth possible which you deserve. I am here to support, educate, liberate and empower you!

I offer ‘The Om Moms Hypnobirthing toolbox’ in four sessions with each session running for about  two and a half hours, sometimes longer depending on questions and the chat! This is a full Hypnobirthing and Antenatal course with added breathing techniques and prenatal yoga for pregnancy and birth. At the Om Moms we work with Hypnoyoga, the fusion of Hypnobirthing and yoga to keep you fit and healthy in both the mind and body, and to relax and prepare you for birth.

You can do this course at any point of your pregnancy and I would recommend any time after 18 weeks. Think earlier the better as it is all in the practice ready for the big day! This is not like an exam where we cram but is something to relax and enjoy doing over time. This is a course for you and your birth partner is welcome too. You can take these classes in person with me in Dubai or online. I also run Couples to Be workshops (see Birth partner 101) and retreats with weekends away and here you will learn lots and lots about all things Hypno (see the Retreats page for all this juicy info!).

The Om Moms Hypnobirthing is a course to help relax you, empower you, and prepare both you and your birth partner for that all important big day and beyond.  Yes, birth partners, you are in this too. Become your partners secret birthing weapon.

    What expecting parents ask?

    What is Hypnobirthing?

    Hypnobirthing is made up of many small things including breathing techniques and relaxation scripts. All the many things will promote calm in the body. The Hypnobirthing course is also designed to teach so it will empower you with knowledge. Hypnobirthing is in fact a full Antenatal course. It is not a form of pain relief but a form of pain management.

    Does it work?

    Yes! Hypnobirthing dates back to the early 1900s, when British Doctor Grantly Dick-Read observed that without fear people have more comfortable and quicker births. He spread the word and now the benefits are now widely accepted by midwives and doctors. In essence it is mind over matter and lots of women have proven it works (I have many clients that will vouch for this too!)

    Why do I need to do the full course?

    At The Om Moms I offer the full Hypnobirthing toolbox and birth preparation course. This is your FULL package to gain ALL the knowledge and relaxation methods. If you have done Hypnobirthing before or a full antenatal course (not your local hospital course as these tend to be very different) and you just want to buy the breathing techniques, relaxation audios and positive affirmations head to my shop and purchase the ‘Hypnobirthing bundle’. Please note although this has all the breathing and audios its does not cover the practical side, what happens before birth and a walk through of your birth!

    Is Hypnobirthing only for natural births?

    Hypnobirthing is designed for everyone from those wanting a natural drug free birth to ‘all the drugs’. Who knows you may change your mind at any point! Even with a planned caesarean you can use the techniques so Hypnobirthing is for everyone regardless of how, where, or when your baby decides to enter the world.

    Does my birth partner need to come?

    Birth partners play a huge role in supporting you physically and emotionally during both pregnancy and birth. Somethimes they can feel a little ‘lost’ in the labour room and this course will guide them down the path they need to be on.  So yes birth partners are welcome! Whether they want to come or not is a different matter but this is something for you to do together, to prepare, and to connect. However there are occasions when you can’t come together and that’s ok too. If an in person or online class I will act as your birth partner for such exercises and if they want to catch up after we will do an extra zoom call to recap.

    When should we start Hypnobirthing?

    It is recommended anytime after 20 weeks but I would say whenever you feel ready! This is not an exam we are cramming last minute for. Try to come with plenty of time to practice (as it is ALL in the practice) saying that I have had couples come to me at 37 weeks and still Hypnobirth their baby into the world.  So with that said whenever you are ready to start thinking about, planning for, and getting super excited about birth.

    Why should I take The Om Moms Hypnobirthing course?

    Here at The Om Moms we have modernised our course to suit current moms to be. When I studied to be a Hypnobirthing instructor we were shown videos of silent women giving birth at home in the water. This however is not true on most parts. At The Om Moms we recognise you may want to roar like a lion in a hospital room but you will still be using all your valuable Hypnobirthing techniques you have learnt. We focus on breathing, yoga postures and pure zen to get ready and it is not for birth but your pregnancy and motherhood journey too.
