Teaching parents in the unique Mindful Natal® way

Your Mindful Natal® antenatal hypnobirthing course will focus on educating parents on the birthing process and their options so they can navigate all birth types and feel empowered to make the right choices for their individual circumstances.

You then provide science-based knowledge on hypnobirthing and mindfulness techniques so they can support their own mind and body throughout the process, however they meet their baby.

 

This is what we call the

Mindful Birth Group® power of 3:

Accredited and award-winning

The antenatal hypnobirthing courses are award-winning and have been featured on many media channels.

We work with a number of accredited external training providers to ensure our courses are fully inclusive and safe for everyone.
