The HypnoBirthing® philosophy is based on the belief that a healthy woman carrying a healthy baby and having a healthy pregnancy, who is properly prepared, is able to have a comfortable and gentle birth. Women who are drawn to HypnoBirthing® have long been seeking a way that helps them give birth as calmly, safely and gently as possible. Through self-hypnosis, special breathing and visualisation, HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release fear and to trust your body’s ability to birth instinctively.

HypnoBirthing® Practitioner Chaya Tagore trained with Mongan Method, which originally came from the USA and is now taught in over 50 countries across the globe. Chaya, an experienced doula and NCT antenatal teacher,  offers HypnoBirthing® courses in the Bath area.

1:1 classes in the comfort of your own home are now available. This will give you the opportunity to relax after the session and couples often say it gave them the confidence to labour at home for longer before calling their midwife. Chaya recommends the course format below which allows you plenty of time to practice the skills that you learn during the course from early on in pregnancy. If you are further along in your pregnancy Chaya can arrange a different format to fit with your needs (please see her Doula page for details):
