Hypnobirthing & Reflexology Course Manchester


Preparation for Birth Course Manchester

A unique course that empowers you to have a positive birth with a gentle, supported recovery. 

A unique and valuable combination

This course is like no other as we share our expertise in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Clinical Reflexology for mother and baby.

We designed this course to give women the information we both wish we’d had when we gave birth. Many Hypnobirthing courses, with the best of intentions, can often set women up to aim for a perfect birth. We want women to feel positive and confident as well as flexible and supported. We’re also passionate about providing knowledge and care for after the baby is born -which we found wasn’t mentioned enough in the courses we attended.

We used our experience as new mums and as professional therapists to create this holistic and comprehensive course.

This is ideal for:

  • first time mums

  • if you have had a challenging pregnancy or birth previously

Held over four weeks in Manchester City Centre, this course gives a grounding in hypnotherapy techniques, reflexology points for you and baby, holistic health for the later stages of pregnancy, birth and recovery.

We will create a supportive and caring environment for you to meet with like-minded women and build friendships to provide on-going support after the birth of your baby.

The course is run by Siân Quipp a highly experienced Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Hannah Tappenden a Reflexologist and Wellbeing Coach who specialises in Women’s Health. Siân and Hannah both have young daughters and Siân is expecting her second child.

Session 1 –Use the power of the mind/body connection to support yourself through pregnancy, learn ways to connect to baby, release any worries and feel calm.

Session 2 – Birth – practical ways for pain relief, increased comfort and calmness. Help to feel empowered and confident mentally and physically.
