He doesn’t, but he will be very glad if he did. Most fathers arrive at the course utterly sceptical and leave extremely enthusiastic. We don’t expect you to believe in it. Why should you? We do ask you to listen to the facts and the logic so you understand how important it is and the difference you as a father or birth companion can make. Have a look at the birth reports from fathers, and you can benefit from their experience.
The caricature of a father at a birth is someone who is nervous, feeling responsible for the situation she is in, holding her hand and wishing he could help, but not knowing what to do.
A hypnobirthing father is knowledgeable and able to support her as she gives birth. He is a huge asset in the birthing room, and many mothers say, ‘I couldn’t have done it without him.’ They have practised before the birth which brings them closer together, and he knows he has played an important part in how his baby enters the world. This deepens their relationship as a couple, and his relationship with his child.
Yes, definitely. Many women have come to the course on their own if they have a husband who is away on business, as a single mum, if it’s a second baby and they can’t find a babysitter for their elder child, or any other reason. Just remember that KG Hypnobirthing works, and you are very welcome.
Please call or email if you feel stressed, are put under pressure, or we can help in any way.
We teach the Hypnobirthing course in two days, sometimes in two consecutive weekends, and sometimes in one weekend. We have found this is extremely effective and is the preferred option of most couples. You will find hypnobirthing taught in different formats, 5 short sessions, 4 short sessions, or 2 days. Each format has its pros and cons, but there is no research showing that one method is better than another. The bottom line is simply that Hypnobirthing works, so choose the format that is most convenient for you.
People sometimes ask if buying The Hypnobirthing Book and the Colour and Calmness CD is sufficient without coming to a course. The honest answer is, ‘I don’t know’. For a few mothers it is, for many it isn’t (though it will always make a difference). The trouble is, you don’t know which category you come into until after your baby is born.
Given the choice, I would advise doing the course in the second trimester of your pregnancy so you can enjoy the benefits during your pregnancy as well as at the birth of your baby. It is not so much a matter of learning facts so they are fresh in your mind, but more a matter of absorbing the information so that it becomes second nature, but KG Hypnobirthing works whenever you do it. I have taught a woman who gave birth two days later, and it worked perfectly well.
Yes, there is no additional charge for the father to attend, and most fathers do come to support their partners.
If you can’t manage both days of a course, just select the first day from one course and the second day from another, and let us know what suits you best. Give us a call, and we’ll do a registration form just for you. Computers are wonderful but rather inflexible and they can’t cope with anything out of the ordinary; we can! You can do one day as a group class and one day as a private class too. Just call us and we’ll sort it out. We know the difference HypnoBirthing makes and you don’t yet, so we will do everything we can to make sure you get the benefits of this wonderful system.
