Our Hypnobirthing Classes
HypnoBirthing® is as much of a philosophy as it is as a technique. It is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. When a birthing person is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally and spiritually, they can experience that sort of joy, birthing their baby in an easier, more comfortable and often even pain free manner.
Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations, and education, HypnoBirthing® returns the art of birthing in a way that allows you to summon your natural birthing instinct. Contact me today to join my group classes, or set up a private class in the comfort of your own home via zoom or coming in 2022 at my office at Hilliard Mills in Manchester.
HypnoBirthing is a comprehensive Childbirth Education Course that has the added benefit of learning about instinctive, undisturbed birth. Along with special breathing techniques and guided self-hypnosis you will learn to see and feel that birth is normal and be able to relax more about the process.
HypnoBirthing is for someone who wants a free birth, hospital birth, home birth, birth center birth, medicated birth, un-medicated birth, and cesarean birth. All births can benefit from deep relaxation, special breathing, mindfulness, and knowledge!

Have you taken a previous HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method class but it's been awhile and you like to get a refresher on breathing techniques, self hypnosis, childbirth ed, the birthing phase or anything else. During our consultation we will discuss what you need me to practice with you and then we meet for either one 4 hour virtual class or two 2 hour virtual classes to go over those things so you can feel confident in your next birth.
“Ailish is a fantastic birth instructor. My husband and I had the privilege of doing an online hypnobirthing course due to COVID. Ailish was warm, knowledgeable and adapted to the class style. She offered additional advice and support that was beyond helpful. She came highly recommended from a friend and I plan to recommend her services to anyone pregnant I know. She is truly an amazing birth worker and I feel grateful that she was a part of our birth journey.
