The NormalBirthing Course
Antenatal Hypnobirthing Classes with Jennifer Sarah - NOW ONLINE!

The NormalBirthing course is now an online hypnobirthing course! And when we settle back to ‘normal’, classes will once again be taught in Hellesdon, Norwich, and in private courses across Norfolk.

Since becoming one of Norwich’s first Hypnobirthing teachers way back in 2012, I have been continuously developing my NormalBirthing Course to be one of the most comprehensive Antenatal Hypnobirthing Classes available to expectant parents.

Full of evidence based information, practical tools and techniques; classes cover a complete traditional Hypnobirthing Course and more.

Classes are informal and conversational with lots of opportunities to ask questions, and all materials and refreshments are provided. You will have lots of opportunities to practice your newly learnt techniques, and you will also have access to my ongoing support before, during and after birth.

Appearances and Accreditations

Limited Online Price £175 (Was £225)

GROUP CLASSES

Group classes are currently being held online! Places are still limited to keep things friendly and relaxed, and allow me to work closely with couples to provide personally tailored classes ensuring everyone's requirements from the course are met.
The course is taught over two 4 hour group sessions (Sat/Sun), with an additional private session (usually one evening) to cover finer details in ways that meet your individual needs, plans and circumstances. Sessions are recorded for you to watch back at your leisure to recap or if you are unable to make a session.

Limited Online Price from £245 (Was £295)

PRIVATE COURSES

A popular choice, private classes enable me to work closely with you and your partner to address any specific worries either of you have, and to tailor the course to your personal situation. The one to one nature means I can be flexible with the scheduling of the course to your availability, and the course is held over 4 sessions of approximately 2-3 hours.
Classes are online via video call, and are recorded for you to watch back at your leisure.

Edd - First Time Dad

As a male you can feel pretty helpless during the pregnancy. This course really helped me connect to the pregnancy and know my role both pre and during birth. Your first child can be a scary prospect, but Jennie taught us both to really understand what the body is going through and techniques to relax. Due to this course, our birth was such a chilled experience and there were no surprises, at every stage of the labour we knew what was going on and what to expect next, but most importantly how to process it all calmly. A once sceptical man being truly honest, who now genuinely couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Thanks Jennie.

John & Katy - First Time Parents

I really couldn’t recommend Jennie’s course enough! As two first time expectant parents, we had enjoyed our NHS NCT course but still felt there was more that could be learnt especially about the birth process itself and methods to aim for a drug free natural birth.
The sessions that we spent with Jennie thoroughly prepared us for a natural birth and filled us with great confidence that was definitely lacking beforehand. We learnt much more about the birth process, covering; what the muscles and chemicals in the body are doing at different stages, breathing and relaxations methods, optimal positioning and so much more.
The birth of my beautiful daughter was quick and completely drug free. Thank you so much Jennie for being so wonderful and preparing us so well.

Victoria - Second time Mum

The best course we did while pregnant! We both found it priceless. I felt educated in the birth process in detail. I learnt what my body is truly going through, and techniques where I can just focus on helping it do what it is designed to do.
My other half also learnt how to relax me and keep me focused, techniques to use with me, and how important his role is just supporting me during labour and surges. He felt properly educated and included, and made it a real team effort. We then went on to have a beautiful baby girl, water birth and ZERO pain relief! A must for mums and dads who want to do birth the natural way.

Sam & Toby - Second Time Parents

Jennie delivered a great course that I would highly recommend to anyone expecting a baby. We were expecting our second child and were unable to access midwife led birthing unit, as we were under consultant care, and this course gave us techniques and perspective to enable my husband and I to have the birthing experience we had been dreaming of. She delivers the course and ongoing support professionally, with appropriate humour and care. Thank you so much for helping our daughter have a relaxed entrance into the world xx

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Are you still teaching during the Coronavirus Lockdown?

Indeed I am! I am now teaching all my birth preparation and pregnancy classes online! Not only does this mean you get to stay safely snuggled at home, but class recordings are also available for a week after sessions for you to watch back at your leisure! Plus I'm offering extending video call support and help via my facebook and whatsapp.
I understand these times are challenging and worrying for us all, so I've also reduced the prices of my courses to reflect my reduced overheads, but same level of quality information, in the hope it helps ease the financial concerns.

Is it all hippy type stuff?

A common misconception, but no! The NormalBirthing course is in fact all sourced from evidence based medical science and practical experience. While we utilise relaxation techniques and an 'alternative' way of thinking at times, you will find that Hypnobirthing is based in logic and knowledge.
It compliments both a natural approach to birth and modern medicine well.

How long is a NormalBirthing Course?

I've recently extended the course to cover even more information! Depending on the format and how chatty we get (!) the online course lasts on average 10-12 hours. Group Sessions are held over 2 scheduled four-hour group calls with a follow up private call. Private courses are usually held over 4 sessions of about 2-3 hours.

My partner isn't sure about it all! Can I do it alone?

Of course you are very welcome to come alone, but partners are VIPs in the birth setting! Often partners feel a bit left out during pregnancy and birth, but the NormalBirthing Course equips them with a whole toolkit of methods and techniques to be your number one support during your birth.
Partners are often more nervous than they let on, and yet they all come away from the course feeling excited and prepared. Have a look at the testimonials for some partners feedback. With online courses recorded, partners can watch back at their leisure or you can replay them the key parts that are most important to you.

Do I need to do anything to prepare or have anything ready?

There is no need to do anything in preparation for your course (except maybe put the kettle on!), and you just need an internet connection and the zoom app on our phone, tablet or computer to take part. All learning materials are provided. If you'd like to take notes feel free to as we go along, but your handouts will cover everything we discuss so you haven't got to worry about writing things down as we chat, and of course you can watch it back too.

Do I need to wear anything in particular?

Classes are relaxed and informal, so wear comfy clothes you're happy to sit around and chat in. There's no need to worry about appearances, I want you to feel comfortable. Pajamas are not compulsory but are encouraged!

How do I book?

Click on any of the BOOK NOW links to be taken to the online booking where you can book and pay for your selected classes. You will then receive an online booking form link to provide me with a few key pieces of information to plan your classes. For private classes please check my availability to ensure I have suitable dates & times before booking. I will be in touch within 24 hours to arrange your course dates with you.
