Debbie Barnes is a professional teacher and hypnotherapist with a passion for supporting parents through birth as an experienced Hypnobirthing Teacher and Doula. The skills and knowledge that you will learn on her antenatal courses teach you to believe in yourself and to have the confidence to create the best birthing experience on the day so that you can and to look forward to the birth of your baby with joy and excitement.

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing classes have been specially designed to build on the mother’s natural and instinctive ability to zone in to her birthing body. The hypnosis and special techniques build a deep inner confidence and calm, which, overcomes fear, stress, and anxiety and helps you to create a wonderful, relaxed calmness during the birth. The Hypnobirthing course also provides detailed information so that you are empowered as parents and able to make the best decisions for you and your baby during the birth. Hypnobirthing mums learn how to be calm and confident and often experience quicker, calmer, more relaxed and comfortable births.

What can you expect from a Hypnobirthing Antenatal Courses?

Debbie’s Hypnobirthing classes are fun! She enjoys helping and supporting you through this wonderful time in your life and loves to catch up with you after you have had your baby.

This is just a little bit of feedback that Debbie has received;

” We started labour at 5pm and breathed through until 1.15am, when we went to hospital baby was born in 33 minutes. I have no doubt that your hypnobirthing classes helped us deliver with full control and the best pain management I can imagine so thank you so much for everything” Maria

We gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in December, on his due date. I had a pool birth and did hypnobirthing all the way through with just gas and air. It was the most amazing experience of my life. Thank you so much for everything. x ” Daniela

“I credit hypnobirthing with giving me such a lovely birthing experience and also for helping my little girl arrive in the world as such a happy, content little baby and I can’t thank Debbie enough for her advice and support” Amy 

“I just wanted  to thank you very much for the session yesterday. I’m feeling much better today, much calmer and happier. I think you’re brilliant.” Jo

Debbie realises that couples are very busy and so has shortened the full hypnobirthing class to her own specialised three session course. All three Hypnobirthing Courses include the hypnosis and hypnobirthing techniques that you will need to stay calm, confident and relaxed during the birth. The longer course allows you to build on your confidence week by week, and to truly master the techniques that you will need for the birth. The Essentials of Hypnobirthing is a very good course and it is taught in three sessions over four weeks, however it does mean that you need to practice the hypnosis and breathing techniques regularly at home. The Essentials of Hypnobirthing (short course) is an excellent course if you are busy, however the sessions are longer and can only be taught on weekdays.It gives you everything you need, however you must practice regularly at home to follow up this course to give you the ability to be relaxed and calm during the birth. this course is also excellent as a refresher or if you have already had a baby.
