Loving, beautiful & consciously taking time for your pregnancy & birth

What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing® loving, beautiful & conscious taking time for your pregnancy HypnoBirthing® in Amsterdam Noord and throughout the city and up to one hour of travel time at home.

HypnoBirthing® is a loving, beautiful, conscious way to take time for each other and the pregnancy. You work together towards the birth. But the steps in the pregnancy are just as important as the day of the birth. If you practice beforehand, you can embrace the birth. Your body knows how to relax better and recognizes the exercises you have done together beforehand. At one of the locations where I teach, I would be happy to welcome you. If you prefer to take the course in a private setting, this is also possible. We will then discuss together how and where this will take place. And depending on your needs, this can be in 5 sessions.

In short, you come together with your partner and enjoy the relaxation and educational exercises. Prepare for a beautiful, positive, and unforgettable experience: the birth of your baby. During the HypnoBirthing® course, you will learn many mental preparation techniques for a loving birth. Let go of your doubts or concerns and use the ‘mind-tools’ that I provide to feel strong, confident, and positive.

You also learn how to reduce the pain/discomfort, sensation, and how to relax wonderfully during our HypnoBirthing® course, which is supported with instructional videos, hypnosis sessions, and the course book. You determine when, where, and how. Completely according to your needs and desires. This way, you have a wide range of options to choose from to make it completely your own. You learn in 5 sessions of 2.5 hours each how to gradually approach your birth and experience it. You take these steps together with your birth partner. You also grow closer to each other because you experience and apply this together.

What is the Secret of HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing® is a form of self-hypnosis. You learn hypnosis ‘tools’ during the course to delve deeper into your body. Your partner also plays a major role in this. How beautiful is it to experience that every baby is born in warmth and tranquility. During HypnoBirthing®, you can enter a state of complete relaxation, allowing you to go deep within. This allows you to let go better and connect better with your baby. While using these techniques, you are still conscious. We actually experience this daily. It is similar to daydreaming or the feeling when you are immersed in a good book. So, you retain control over your body and mind and can still stay in touch with people. You determine for yourself in what state of relaxation you are. And this with the help of your partner or perhaps a Doula.

AT THIS MOMENT WE ALSO OFFER THE COURSE DIGITALLY! Also because we want to prepare you as well as possible for your birth. So in this case, it is boundless, and you can even participate from abroad.

    When is HypnoBirthing®?

    Most courses take place on a Saturday or Sunday, and sometimes in the evenings. The courses always consist of 5 sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours. In the case of a private lesson, I come to you or you come to my own beautiful centre with free parking.

    Alternatively, you can come to my own space in Amsterdam Noord, with private parking, so it’s free for you. During the group courses, I provide coffee, tea, water, fruit, healthy snacks, and cookies. You can sign up for the course from as early as 20 weeks. Couples usually attend during their leave, as it allows them to let go better. However, this varies for each couple.

    The tools you learn can be used for anything, so if you still have a lot to do, you can use the tools to approach it differently. If you’re not sure when you want to participate, don’t hesitate to email or call me, and we can figure out what works best for you together. I look forward to meeting you at one of the locations.

    Good to Know

    Will the course (or part of it) be reimbursed by the health insurance company? A considerable number of health insurance companies reimburse part of our HypnoBirthing course or pregnancy course. This is usually through supplementary insurance. For example, OZF Achmea reimburses between 50 and 75 depending on the supplementary package you have. Another good example is Ohra’s comprehensive supplementary and the Delta Lloyd Start package, both of which reimburse €200 for our course. Contact your health insurance company beforehand for the correct details. The terms and conditions of health insurance are often very specific. Therefore, we advise you to first contact your health insurance provider. Often, you can submit the invoice to the health insurance company only after you have completed the course. So it’s worth checking first. With us, you can always request and receive an invoice to submit.
