Birth Preparation &

Hypnobirthing Workshop

 

 

 

 

In this completely original, multi award-winning workshop we focus on how you want to FEEL during your pregnancy, babies birth, and during the post partum period. I want you to leave your workshop feeling calm, informed and confident. Experience a selection of highly effective tools and techniques to allow yourself the space and opportunity to have a positive birth - taught by Jessica Ord, Hypnobirthing Practitioner & Evidence Based Birth Professional. 

Held in my Relaxation Room in the heart of rural Northumberland (Chatton), the Positively Pregnant Hypnobirthing Workshops are easily accessible to anyone in the North East (20 minutes from Alnwick, 20 minutes from Berwick Upon Tweed). Because the in person workshop is held over 1 full day (10am - 5:30pm) , rather than small sessions spread across many weeks, it means that the workshop is perfect for anyone living between Newcastle Upon Tyne and Scotland. It also means that you aren't 'drip fed' the information you need to know to have a positive birth experience, you learn everything during this one informal, fun and educational day - many people even make a trip of their day and enjoy the stunning countryside and local pubs during the lunch break. 

One of the things which I love so much about teaching the course is the coming together of the birthing woman and her birth partner; many fathers especially come along a little dubious to start with, and as the day progresses I can see them feel more and more in tune with their partner and confident about what is to come and the important role they will play. This, teamed with understanding that you have choices, and how to make those choices, lets couples leave the day feeling truly calm and empowered. 

 

 

 

 

 

The best time to attend a workshop is between 20 and 30 weeks - so a big window! If you're feeling nervous, overwhelmed or anxious - the sooner you come to your workshop, the better, as you'll be able to begin to relax into your pregnancy, make informed decisions, make your birth plan and practice your techniques.

What will you learn?

  • About your birth Hormones & how they effect labour

  • Hypnobirthing  - I teach 5 original and uniquely simple techniques . These techniques are designed to help you feel calm and in control during labour, and to help you manage the intensity of sensations. We will also take a look at WHY the 'hyno' element is so important, and how it will MASSIVELY help you during labour. 

  • The physical side of Birth - Learn about the different stages of labour, what's ACTUALLY happening during a contraction, waters going, pushing - everything you could possibly need to know to feel prepared and confident! 

  • Your Birth Room (and getting there!) - making a perfect birth 'nest' that will help labour to progress smoothly

  • Pain & Fear - how they're linked & how one causes the other

  • Birth Partner - Forget sitting in the corner feeling like a 'spare part' - your partner will leave the day feeling confident and happy in how they can fully support you & be an essential part of your baby's birth. 

  • Physical Anchors - it's not all 'mind power', we'll be taking a look at the physical things you can do to feel instantly Zen during labour. 

  • Creating a Hypnobirthing routine to ensure you feel relaxed & confident in the lead up to giving birth.  

  • Focussing on how you want to FEEL in the coming weeks, months & during labour & thinking about what you can be doing to make that a reality. 

  • Birth Options & decisions - there can be so many different options when it comes to birth and interventions around birth. I'll help you start to look at these options & figure out whats right for YOU.  

  • Creating your Birth Plan(s)! We don't purely focus on you're 'plan A' here - we take a look at how you can make a birth plan which covers every eventuality - from water birth to Caesarean birth, we can make any situation a calm, loving and positive one. 

  • Finding evidence, research & reliable information to make your decisions around pregnancy & birth. 

  • Birth Rights - We take a look at these and give you the confidence to take your birth experience into your own hands. 

  • Assertiveness - Let's get you feeling cool & confident when it comes to expressing your wishes & choices around birth

  • Language - how language can be used in a clinical environment & how it may affect the way you act
