Hypnobirthing courses with Molly O’Brien

Hypnobirthing at treat-Norwich!

These classes will give you and your birth partner the tools and strategies to help you stay and remain relaxed, confident and calm throughout labour, no matter where or how you give birth.

You will be taught how the mind and fear affects your body in relation to the birthing process and the hormones of birth and motherhood. You will learn techniques to transform fear into confidence using visualisation, relaxation and breathing techniques along with learning self hypnosis. These techniques have been shown to be useful not only for the birth but as new parents you can be more relaxed and able to enjoy this special time with your newborn baby.


£220 for both you and your birth partner includes hypnobirthing book, handouts, and a  CD

late July / early August Dates to be confirmed

All Saturday classes are five and a half hours - including a half hour lunch break, evening classes are two and a half hours. 

If there are not enough people for one of the date cycles we may ask you to move to a later course (and don't worry if you are close to term, we will make sure you get your classes) - so please- book in plenty of time - we recommend booking at around 24 weeks - this gives you time to practice and learn the techniques.

Molly O’Brien RM. BSc (Hons) AHBM. RCM

Midwife, antenatal educator and hypnobirthing practitioner, Molly has practised as a midwife for 20 years in both hospital and community settings, attending hundreds of women in labour. She is also an associate lecturer at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Her area of expertise is physiological birth, hypnobirth and waterbirth, but she also has a wealth of experience in complex birth. Currently working in a NHS midwife-led birth unit, Molly is an expert in normal, straightforward birth, and how to keep it that way. She’s recently cut down on clinical work to free up more time to share her skills, knowledge and ‘tricks of the trade’.

Molly chose midwifery after giving birth to her own children ignited a passion for the powerful and unforgettable experience of becoming a mother. In twenty years of clinical practice little has delighted her more than witnessing the calm, confident births of women who trust in their bodies and birth instinctively. A key element of such births has been a lack of fear. Molly understands through her work how fear interferes with normal physiology,  and how various factors, increased medicalisation, media sensationalism, and a less closely socially connected world have all helped bring fear into the birthing room.

A huge advocate of hypnobirthing Molly trained as a hypnobirth practitioner on a course specifically for midwives because: “it’s an excellent tool, transforming fear into the calm confidence that gives women the best possible chance of a normal birth.”

Molly offers a Hypnobirthing course and  a selection of 5 x short classes. You can choose which classes you would like to attend. Suitable from 26 weeks of pregnancy onwards.
