Give Birth Without Fear
Give Birth Without Fear is a technique developed in Sweden by Susanna Heli. This technique is different to hypnobirthing in the way that it uses strategies suitable for any type of birth rather than scripts and mindfulness techniques.
This workshop offers everything you need to know to successfully breastfeed your baby and feel confident and prepared. There will be practical elements during the workshop using knitted breasts and dolls to demonstrate positions and effective attachment.
Give Birth without fear workshop
Hypnobirthing is very popular and can be very effective. We didn’t want to offer a service already widely available and not suited to everyone. We discovered an alternative to hypnobirthing. A method developed in Sweden aiming to become a globalised movement. The method is called ‘Give Birth Without Fear’. You can research the founder, Susanna Heli. Her book about giving birth without fear is a recommended read.
