HypnoBirthing birth classes in Lisbon teach you how to have the best pregnancy & birth for you and your baby.

The birth classes in Lisbon are usually run weekly (5 x 2.5 hours) and are an interesting mix of theory together with plenty of relaxation and practical work.  Releasing fear about childbirth or parenting is a major part of the course and there is always a distinct change in attitude, particularly from the mothers, once this part is completed. In each of the birth classes we watch videos of my own clients telling their birth stories and also videos of labouring mums, comfortable & in good humour, with hardly a sound as their baby is born – they are all very real proof that it really is possible to experience a calm, natural birth using our techniques.  Please read my clients' birth stories.

During the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak classes will be online.

"My husband, the midwife and I could hardly believe how perfect it was. We have no doubt that HypnoBirthing not only affected me but also my baby."

Many couples are quite skeptical at the start of the classes and doubt that it may be possible for them to give birth with little or even no pain.  However, by the end of the course they feel excited and confident and really look forward to the big day!

"The midwife & doctor kept asking me "Are you sure you don't feel the contractions?" & I kept replying "No, nothing..".. pretty amazing..


So, why do we usually teach HypnoBirthing in Lisbon over 5 weeks?

Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are very effective tools.  For you to be able use them when you are in labour is an acquired skill, that needs to be learned gradually in stages and practiced in between sessions. This ensures that you have the time to develop the conditioned responses that make HypnoBirthing so successful. There is no short cut, and this why we teach our course over 5 classes.
Learning HypnoBirthing over a day or weekend does not work nearly as effectively. The brain and body memory have a limited learning capacity, especially in pregnancy!


This course also allows the time to explore your feelings, relax with your partner and to resolve and release any anxieties that may arise. I like to work with you personally and to follow your progress, so that we can ensure that you are fully ready, relaxed and confident as you approach the birth of your baby.

Parents, midwives and doctors are constantly amazed by the wonderful births experienced through HypnoBirthing and as a result HypnoBirthing birth classes are offered across Britain on the NHS.

"The midwife who delivered my baby was very impressed with the speed of the delivery and also that I did not need pain relief. She admitted she was skeptical when I first mentioned HypnoBirthing, but after witnessing my birth she read all about it."

Book early!  Group classes are small and fill up fast.

Group classes are held in Cascais/online, and the Lisbon area.  If you have friends who would like to form a group then I will come to you if you have a large enough lounge and parking nearby.

I'm late on in my pregnancy, is it too late?

No, don't worry.  I often run private classes for mums who have just a few weeks to go.  If you apply yourself you too can have a wonderful childbirth.

Don't worry if you live a long way away!
