Course Information
The Confident C-Section Course is a complete 7.5 hour programme that typically runs as 3 x 2.5 hour classes. Classes can be attended by Mum and Birthing Partner between 20 – 34 weeks of pregnancy allowing plenty of time for practice. In the sessions we will talk through:

✅  How you feel about your upcoming c-section.
✅  What exactly a C-section is.
✅  The mind-body connection, & hypnosis.
✅  Taking charge of your thoughts, & dealing with negative influences.
✅  Reducing anxiety.
✅  Relaxation techniques.
✅  Breathing.
✅  Fear release.
✅  Negotiation.
✅  Birth planning.
✅  Birth partner’s role.
✅  Confident c-section preparation.

This course takes place at our studio in Great Harrowden at mutually convenient times for £185.

It can also take place privately in your home for £290 (I will bring the yummy snacks to you!).​


What it will be like, what are your options, is there anything you can do to aid recovery, or maybe how will affect your ability to look after your wee bubba when (h)she is born? Your partner might be wondering what they can do to support you too.

This programme will answer all of those questions and more, and leave you feeling empowered and confident as you prepare for your C-Section.

You will have already gone through the process of questioning and reviewing information that has led you to this decision. If you have any doubts about your decision, please do get in touch and we can talk through the negotiation process first before booking the course. This will ensure that you feel confident that it is the right choice for your baby’s birth. 

Many of the techniques in the full Wise Hippo Birthing Programme are suitable for helping you to stay calm and make informed choices. However, this programme has been written specifically for the issues involved in having a C-section.,    Marie Teale,    Northamptonshire,    07989174045
