The Hypnobirthing Midwife was founded in 2015 by midwife Anthonissa Moger, after she saw that women needed hypnobirthing classes that were more evidence based and grounded in midwifery, AND antenatal classes that were more holistic.
Our classes combine the best of both worlds!
The course has been developed by Anthonissa over five years of midwifery practice and five years of teaching NHS antenatal and hypnobirthing classes. Each Mum and birth partner is given a standardised workbook, so that you are guaranteed to receive the best content in every class.
We currently have group classes in Leyton, Hackney, Bethnal Green, Crouch End and Waterloo. We provide private classes in your home throughout London.
Why Choose Our 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. Our course provides you with both. You will make a plan for early labour, and one to manage strong labour too.
As much for your birth partner as it is for you!
Our 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.
Taught by midwives
All of our teachers are working midwives with a minimum of four years practice. This means they have supported hundreds of Mums to birth and can share their experience of what really works on the day!
Including the 'what ifs'
Unlike many other hypnobirthing courses, we 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, group B strep, how to cope with long labours, epidurals and induction of labour.
Enjoy a lazy weekend meal together after class
From September 2018 all our classes are taught over one weekend, NO late night classes, NO rushing from work and feeling exhausted the next day! This is what our Mums + Dads said they wanted, so we've made it happen for you. On Saturday after 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.
We arrange an informal 'Meet Up' for all our groups after the course finishes
New wave hypnobirthing
