COVID-19 Hypnobirthing. New! How to prepare for birth in lockdown with hypnobirthing.

COVID-19 Hypnobirthing

COVID-19 Hypnobirthing Questions

The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a feeling of confusion and unease around having a baby.

Here are just a few of the questions that I regularly get asked:

  • Will I continue to see my community midwife?
  • Can my birth partner attend antenatal appointments/scans?
  • What if I or my birth partner have symptoms of COVID-19?
  • Can I use the Midwifery Led Centre to birth my baby?
  • Will my birth partner be with me?
  • Will the pool be available?
  • Can I have visitors?
  • Will my partner stay with me after birth?
  • Will my caesarean be rescheduled?

COVID-19 hypnobirthing courses are designed to keep you up to date and feeling even more confident with your birth choices and decisions.

During periods of lockdown the course is delivered in the comfort of your own home via Zoom video and I am always at the end of the phone to answer any questions that you may have between sessions.

The sessions are capped at 2 hours to make sure that you are comfortable throughout your session,  we are all feeling the effects of screen overload and if you need to step away for a break you can.

The course is designed for birth partners to attend throughout and every session is relevant for your birth partner.  Some mums choose to attend on their own and that is also fine, only you know what will work for best you.

All of my hypnobirthing classes have been adapted to reflect the current NHS guidelines and local NHS trust COVID-19 policies so that you have the most up to date information throughout your course.

If restrictions relax during the duration of your course you will be offered the option to change to face to face sessions if that is what your preference is - I am always happy to welcome you over to Happy Healthy Babies HQ!

Allison's online experience

"This was out first pregnancy and my husband and I were clueless as to what to expect! I knew that I wanted a relaxed birth and initially hoped for a homebirth. A friend had shared a hypnobirthing book and it sounded right up our alley. I googled hypnobirthing coaches and immediately was drawn to Leonie.

The only downside was we live in Sheffield and she is in Warwick. Since everyone was under the initial COVID lockdown I decided to email and ask if she was offering online/virtual classes. Thankfully she said yes! And it was the best decision to have Leonie walk with us through this pregnancy! Because she is very welcoming, wise, calming and joyful being online didn’t hinder our experience one bit!  

The whole experience was so empowering for us! We learned everything we needed to know about the birth process. Even though my birth story did not go as planned—we were prepared and able to go with the flow without fear thanks to Leonie. Even if we hadn’t been in lockdown, reflecting back makes it incredibly clear that having the right person walking with us far outweighed any potential downside of virtual (but again we did not really feel any downsides). Honestly I cannot speak higher of Leonie and our virtual hypnobirthing course with her! Would recommend to anyone!"
