‘Huddle’ antenatal course
‘Just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic course. I’ve just let myself have a few weeks of letting it all sink in before I get focused!
The information on the course was more than I ever expected and it’s made me feel prepared and exited to give birth rather than having anxiety of the unknown. I’ll keep you posted and I’ll definitely be back to the hideout post baby to do some classes, it’s such a nice space I’m so glad I looked you up!’
NHS classes are unfortunately getting less and less and very difficult to assess if in fact the hospital runs any anymore. Other well known courses have also not moved on with the times either and I constantly have people locally asking me for an alternative that doesn’t cost the earth so as well as my full antenatal Hypnobirthing course that I’ve ran for 18 years I’m launching a three session birth preparation course for only £80. It’s no good just having information, it’s so important you have ways of managing changes and how to understand and be able to make informed choices. My passion for a positive birth experience shines through in everything I do. You will receive refreshments and a workbook and all the information you need to make your own informed choices and decisions. I include a lot of birth partner support, what may happen on the day and how to navigate and stay positive through your birth. There will be lots of tips from myself- an experienced birth doula of 18 years who has supported over 260 couples achieve a positive experience and a chance to ask any questions you like without feeling it’s a silly question! Two sessions are based on preparing for the birth and the last one is early day preparation where we will focus on how you feel and how to cope with your emotions of being a new parent. It’s also a chance to meet other couples and join The Huddle social group where you can access lots of free meet ups. All classes are at The Bump and Baby Hideout which is warm, calm and relaxing. It will probably be your first experience of The Hideout but it definitely won’t be your last as you will hopefully want to come back for a gorgeous pregnancy treatment or for classes with your baby in a place you are familiar and will no doubt know others already in the local community we are creating here.

Pregnancy meet ups
Friday morning 10am
I”m very excited to announce a new session at The Hideout. It’s so hard to meet other pregnant mums without paying a fortune for a course you don’t really want to do. I’ve always wanted to provide this and finally with the beautiful Hideout complete and full, I can’t wait to offer it for friendships and support. The first session is just a meet up and depending on what mums think I may ask some of the amazing therapists/teachers to visit at future meet ups for you so watch this space.
