Workshops and fees

Natal Hypnotherapist Natalie Qureshi runs hypnobirthing two-day group workshops. Workshops can be booked separately, but it is recommended that you attend both in order to have the best birth experience possible. The first day is called ‘Natural Pain Relief’ and the second ‘Practical Birth Preparation’. Workshops are a great way to meet other parents-to-be. Group workshops are run from Natalie’s home in Whitefield.

The cost is £95 per one day workshop and includes the Effective Birth Preparation Workbook and four Downloads which are exclusive to the course.

The first of the two workshops is Natural Pain Relief. This workshop focuses exclusively on natural pain management tools and techniques; namely, breathing, relaxation and self-hypnosis.

  • - Natural ways to manage pain in childbirth.
  • - Self-hypnosis skills to overcome fear and increase your confidence and trust in your ability to give birth.
  • - Effective breathing and deep relaxation techniques.
  • - How fear or anxiety have a negative impact on your body during birth and how to reduce them.
  • - Ways in which your birth partner can help you achieve a deeply relaxed state.
  • - This workshop can be taken at any time during your pregnancy and is the perfect complement to NCT/NHS antenatal classes.

The second workshop, Effective Birth Preparation is a practical day to help you and your birth partner prepare both physically, mentally and emotionally for birth. It is best done after the Natural Pain Relief Workshop.

You will be taken step-by-step through the birthing process from a physical as well as emotional perspective, learning practical tools and techniques to help you work with your body in the most effective way.

At the Birth Prep workshop you will learn:

Practical techniques to help you stay calm and relaxed during the birth including massage, using a birth ball and birthing positions.

  • - How your body works during labour and what you can do to help it.
  • - Practical tools and techniques for your partner to keep you calm, relaxed and at ease during the birth.
  • - How your emotions change during the labour and signs to look out for.
  • - Effective ways to work with the medical team supporting you.
  • - You may take this workshop at any time during your pregnancy but most couples prefer to take it closer to the time of birth (from about 32 weeks onwards).

Natalie also runs private one-to-one sessions; these are individually tailored to the needs of the couple and are a great way to take time out and prepare for the birth of your baby in the comfort of your own home. Private sessions can be held over two days, or three evenings.
