Where are the courses held?
Antenatal Hypnobirthing classes are undertaken in the comfort of my home in N12, Barnet. I have a quiet, private and relaxing space at my home where I hold classes. A huge range of teas are available, plus copious amounts of cake and fruit will be served at each class, after all isn't that what keeps us mums going. It is very close to Muswell Hill, East Finchley, Finchley and Palmers Green. Parking is just fine and no restrictions. If you would prefer a private class, that can be arranged at your home.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Just yourself and your birth partner! I do recommend that you attend the classes in comfortable clothing as you will want to be as relaxed as possible. You can also bring your own pillow for relaxation should you wish to however, I have everything here for you.
I appreciate that sometimes classes are hard to attend especially when going through pregnancy and if you are already a mother. I do however ask that you give me as much notice as possible in the event you won't be able to attend a class and we can then reschedule. I try to be as flexible as I can as I know how plans can change.
I am unable to hold unpaid spaces unfortunately. Booking is only confirmed once the fee has been paid in full. I will of course discuss a payment plan with you if that is the best way for you to come to the classes
If a class has to be rescheduled from my side due to illness, I will work out the best way for you with the least disruption to your course.
