Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
My name is Anthonissa Moger (Nissa for short) and I founded The Hypnobirthing Midwife in 2015. I experienced the profound power of hypnobirthing during the birth of my daughter at home in 2008 and continued to witness its magic as a home birth midwife AND on the busy labour ward at St Thomas' Hospital where I currently work.
I have designed these classes combining my knowledge as a pregnancy yoga teacher, five years as a practicing midwife and experience teaching hypnobirthing to over 600 London Mums and Dads.
On completing my course you will feel
Calm, relaxed and able to enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.
Confident with a clear plan for practicing your tools and techniques.
Actually excited to give birth and meeting your baby too!

Why choose my course?
The best chance of a straightforward birth
Many traditional antenatal classes will teach you about the process of birth but not how to actually manage it on the day. My course provides you with both. You will make a practical plan for early labour, and one to manage strong labour too.
As much for your birth partner as it is for you!
My content is designed to teach birth partners what their role is, so that you don't have to worry on the day. They will learn how to keep you (and themselves) feeling relaxed, and will finish the course feeling calm and confident to support you.
Includes active birth positions and online video course
As midwives we know that your baby's position can have a significant impact, making birth longer and more uncomfortable. So I designed my online course 'Align Your Baby' to give you the best chance of a quicker and easier birth experience.
Taught by midwives
All of my teachers are working midwives with a minimum of five years practice. This means we have supported hundreds of birthing Mums and can share our experience of what really works on the day!
Including the 'what ifs'
Unlike many other hypnobirthing courses, I don't ignore the 'what ifs'. You will spend time working through difficult scenarios so that you are super prepared for whatever happens on the day. We cover birth by ventouse, forceps and caesarean, how to cope with long labours, epidurals and induction of labour.
Enjoy a lazy weekend meal together after class
All my classes are taught over one weekend, NO late night classes, NO rushing from work and feeling exhausted the next day! This is what Mums + Dads said they wanted, so I've made it happen for you. After the first class you are invited to stay for food and drinks at a local pub, so you can relax and get to know your new friends.
I arrange an informal 'Meet Up' for all our groups after the course finishes
New wave hypnobirthing
I have dropped the outdated methods from traditional hypnobirthing which have proved impractical for many Mums and Dads on the day. Having taught over 600 women, these techniques are tried and tested!
Ongoing support until your baby arrives
Have questions or need advice after the course finishes? Just drop me an email and I'll be happy to offer you support until your baby arrives.
Make friends for life
With a maximum of eight couples per class you are sure to meet and connect with your kind of people and the Mums and Dads in our groups always stay in touch with a whatsapp group.
