What Empowered Mamas has to offer you.
Updated: Jun 6
Birth Preparation & Hypnobirthing Courses
I offer 3 types of sessions covering the Letchworth Garden City Area, Hitchin, Baldock & Stotfold in North Hertfordshire & Central Bedfordshire.
Firstly there are the group sessions with no more than 6 Birthing People & their birth companions, this course is great for those you can attend bi-weekly classes on a weekend and would love to meet other expectant parents to be to help grow a network of friendship & support.
Secondly I do 2:1 sessions, these are great if you have a friend who is pregnant with you who would also like to do the Birth Preparation course but you would prefer to do it privately in your own home. You do the course together with your birth companions and one of you host or you take turns hosting. These can be arranged for a time that suits us both either condensed into 2 longer sessions on a weekend or 4 sessions if held on a week night.
Thirdly I do 1:1 sessions with you and your birth partner in your own home at a time that is convenient for us both. These are good if you have more than one birth partner as they can both be there learning alongside you, again these can be condensed into 2 longer sessions or 4 sessions on weeknights. .

Introduction to Hypnobirthing & Pregnancy Relaxation
This class is an hour long to learn a little bit about how the birthing body works, how Hypnobirthing can have a positive impact on your birth no matter what path your birth goes down and finish the class with some guided pregnancy relaxation.
Pregnancy Relaxation gives you a moment to rest & unwind. It’s so important for our minds & bodies to rest, take a moment to breathe & to let any tension in our bodies ease. In the modern society that we live in we’re constantly switched on, always thinking, doing something or double screening as a way to rest but it's not giving our minds or bodies that moment of peace that they need. So you can get comfy, close your eyes and rest at the end of this class.
If you would like to book on to any of my classes or book a call to discuss a 1:1/2:1 Birth Preparation & Hypnobirthing course please don't hesitate in sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Letchworth Pregnancy Club
I set up this community during lockdown as a place of community, support & knowledge for Pregnancy & the 4th trimester, we organise get togethers, have local experts do a Friday Facebook Live & are here to offer support to all members. I run the group with Jo from The Cloth Bums CIC our amazing local cloth nappy library based in Letchworth.
