Water Birth

Meet Love Labour Hypnobirthing

The birth of your baby should be something that you are excited about, rather than something you are fearful of. With a Love Labour Hypnobirthing course you will feel prepared, empowered and ready to take on your journey from pregnancy to parenthood. 

I promise I have no intentions of hypnotising you to make you cluck like a chicken as you may imagine! Together we will address your fears, discuss the role of your birth partner, and go over the stages of labour and how to make it a much more positive experience. You will also learn relaxation, visualisation, and breathing techniques to make your birth experience as calm and comfortable as possible. 

The Love Labour Hypnobirthing course is a full antenatal program, so you won’t need to take any other pregnancy class. Hypnobirthing is for all types of birth, so whether you’re planning a very natural birth, a water birth, caesarean, induction, medicated birth, or a heavily monitored ‘high-risk’ birth, these classes are for you. 

Group hypnobirthing classes currently run in Greasby Children’s Centre on Saturdays. If you can’t make the dates listed, a 1:1 hypnobirthing course can be booked at a date and time to suit you. Areas covered include the Wirral (inclusive of West Kirby, Hoylake, Heswall, Irby, Pensby, Greasby, Upton, Birkenhead, Bebington, Bromborough, New Ferry). I will also cover areas within Cheshire and Liverpool so do get in touch even if you’re from further afield!

A Bit About Me

Sarah - The Creator of Love Labour Hypnobirthing

I found out I was pregnant with my first baby the day before the COVID-19 lockdown, so whilst feeling the usual anxieties of a newly expectant mother, I had a global pandemic to worry about! I was so happy and excited, but equally absolutely terrified, especially when it came to actually having to give birth. I do believe that most mums-to-be, especially first time mums, will relate to these feelings. 

I was so pleased to stumble upon hypnobirthing and my whole perception was changed! Instead of feeling scared, unprepared, and wanting to bury my head in the sand, I felt so calm, confident, and ready to give birth. When labour started, my main feeling was excitement which I know would not have been the case if I had not done hypnobirthing. 

When I became pregnant for the second time, I knew straight away what to do and was able to start practicing my relaxations and breathing techniques from the very start of my pregnancy. Both of my births were incredible water births, with gas and air to keep me company, as well as fantastic midwives (and my partner of course!) 

I was so amazed by this transformation in my mindset, that a few months after giving birth the second time, I completed my hypnobirthing teacher training with KGHypnobirthing. I wanted everyone out there to know about the wonders of hypnobirthing! 

When I’m not teaching, I also work part-time as a care reviewing officer for a private care company, supporting the elderly and those struggling with long-term issues or mental health/learning disabilities. As if that isn’t enough, I am kept very busy by my two children, my Romanian rescue  dog, Rosie, and planning my wedding to my amazing partner in 2024.

Birth Plan Support Sessions


I am offering 1:1 sessions to explore your options and preferences for your birth.

Although you cannot plan every aspect of your birth, you can explore your individual options. Having a solid birth plan helps you and your partner to make decisions on the day of your baby’s birth with ease. Knowing your options will help you to achieve a more positive birth experience and enable good communication between you and your caregivers. 

During this 2-hour session we’ll explore your options and preferences for each stage of labour, including your:

  • Birth place

  • Birth environment

  • Support from birth partners and caregivers

  • Comfort measures

  • Equipment

  • Possible interventions

  • The Golden Hour

Q & A

What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is a method of managing pain and anxiety during childbirth, involving various therapeutic relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing and visualisation.  It is centred on releasing fear and building confidence in the natural process of birth through practising relaxation techniques. It focuses strongly on being well informed so you can make the best choices about your care.

What are the benefits?

- You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth.
- Your baby will arrive to a serene and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.
- Length of labour is often much shorter.
- Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births allowing your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.
- Mums often bounce back quicker after birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.
- Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. A truly shared and loving experience. 

What course materials am I given?

Before the course you will be sent 'Colour & Calmness', the pregnancy and birth relaxation CD or MP3, so you can start to practice and develop a positive outlook on pregnancy and birth straight away.

At the course you will be given The Hypnobirthing Book and a folder of handouts to support you during the rest of your pregnancy and the birth of your baby.

Do I need to bring my birth partner?

They don’t have to, but they will be very glad if they do. Most birth partners 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 birth companion can make. 

A hypnobirthing birth partner will be knowledgeable and able to support you as you give birth. They are a huge asset in the birthing room, and many mothers say, ‘I couldn’t have done it without them.’ They have practised together before the birth which brings them closer together, and they know they have played an important part in how the baby enters the world. For couples in a relationship, this deepens their connection as a couple, as well as their bond with their child.
