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 (4 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.

"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 birth classes in Lisbon 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..".. that's pretty amazing.."

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.

It is not just parents, but midwives and doctors are constantly amazed by the wonderful, gentle births experienced through HypnoBirthing and as a result many train with us so that they are able to better support Hypnobirthing mums and/or offer HypnoBirthing classes.


"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 & told me she was a convert."  Madeline, Gibraltar

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

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

No, don't worry.  I often run private classes to help mums who have just a few weeks to go.  They totally embraced the program and went on to have a wonderful childbirth.  It's about committment rather than time.

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

Portugal is a huge country and you may be located a long way from a practitioner.  When necessary the program can be taught online, it works perfectly.
