HypnoBirthing® Antenatal Classes

Joan Mills

Joan Mills is a mother of three children, all born locally and was an NHS nurse for many years. A qualified Reflexologist and full member of the AoR (Association of Reflexologists), she is a certified HypnoBirth practitioner, trained in the Mongan Method and a Doula with Doula UK.

Joan worked as a NHS nurse in hospitals and the community for many years and then trained as a Complementary Therapist, specialising in Reflexology, when her three children were still young in order to work round her family life and be with the children while they were growing up. As they got older she focused on the area of Maternity Reflexology and continued her training in women’s health during pregnancy and childbirth. She then trained as a HypnoBirth teacher in the Marie Mongan method and recently with Katharine Graves, a more British approach accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. In addition I trained as a Doula with Michel Odent and now attend births as a Doula.

A better birth experience with Hypnobirthing

Unlike other conventional ante-natal preparation classes when you are told about the importance of relaxation and breathing, in our HypnoBirthing classes Joan will teach you techniques to really relax and breathe properly and have a much better birth experience. You will feel confident about going into your birth equipped with all the necessary tools and information to enjoy a more comfortable, easier and shorter labour and birth.

Benefits of Hypnobirthing

HypnoBirthing teaches women to dispel the fear of childbirth, to learn how to relax and trust their bodies. Partners are also encouraged to be a big part of the learning process and truly support their birthing partner. Your birth and your baby’s birthday is one of the most important days in your lives and with HypnoBirthing it can also be the best day.
