Women with increased stress, needle/medical phobias, high blood pressure, discomfort, heartburn and water retention can all benefit.

Why Hypnobirthing?

You will learn simple yet powerful techniques in a well thought out system of deep relaxation, breathing and self-hypnosis to stay emotionally and physically calm during labour.  Hypnobirthing teaches you how to change any fearful, negative expectations of birth into positive expectations. This enables you to feel mentally ready for your own birth journey. Deep relaxation is the optimum physical and mental state for labour; promoting all the hormones that support the body in producing effective contractions and, surprisingly assisting with pain relief.

Benefits of Hypnobirthing include :

  • Eliminates anxiety and fear about birth, increasing confidence and reducing stress.
  • Achieve a shorter and more efficient labour.
  • Reduce tiredness so that you remain alert and energised during labour and birth.
  • Greatly reduces the need for medication and intervention.
  • Develop skills that will enable you to deal with times of stress and tiredness after birth.

"Incredible!! I couldn't have gone through labour without this wonderful woman Leonie Darch and her hypnobirthing programme!! She taught me everything I needed to know to have a calm relaxed birth xx"


"I can recommend Leonie and hypnobirthing from experience! I was very anxious about giving birth and very squeamish and scared of hospitals. After doing the hypnobirthing course with Leonie I had a natural birth with just a bit of gas and air! Leonie is truly amazing!"

"Brilliant classes for anyone who would like to have a relaxed and comfortable birth. Leonie is great and made me and my partner feel confident about the birth of our first baby. By using the techniques we practiced with Leonie I had a very quick and natural labour"
