Brighton hypnobirthing classes run monthly from The Loft in central Brighton and are led by May Langan. The venue is easily accessible and only a 5 minute walk from the main train station.

Our hypnobirthing course is designed to be a fully comprehensive antenatal course, so there is no need for you to attend any others unless you wish to. Each course runs over a single weekend, with teaching taking place 10am - 4pm on both days. A great advantage to group classes is that you will have the opportunity to meet other like-minded parents-to-be from your local area and there is always a really positive, supportive atmosphere. A key benefit to attending in person courses is that you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, the course will be tailored to meet the needs of those attending and you have access to ongoing support on phone or email all the way until your baby is born. Women are welcome to attend any time from 20 weeks into their pregnancy but most women attend around the 30 week mark. That said, it’s never too late to attend and to learn more about birth and equip yourself with the tools needed for the best birth possible.


Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June

  • PLEASE NOTE: this course will run 12.30 - 5.30pm on the Saturday and 10am - 4pm on the Sunday.

Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September


Birth partners are encouraged to attend because they play a vital role in the birth process and benefit from learning more about the process and how they can help. We believe that a woman should be well supported in pregnancy and birth and the course equips the birth partner with all the tools they need to be able to do this. We believe that birth is a real team effort. 


The cost of the course is £250 per couple and the price includes a copy of our book ‘Hypnobirthing: Practical Ways to Make Your Birth Better’, a set of MP3s, a course notes booklet, goody bag, pack of positive affirmation cards and on going support, available on phone or email, right up until the birth of your baby. You will also be invited to join our amazing private community on Facebook, where you will be able to chat with women who have previously completed the course and get support and advice and daily positive birth stories.


On the course you will learn how your body is designed to work perfectly in birth from a physiological and psychological perspective. You will learn how to work with your body to best facilitate a quick and easy labour and birth. You will be taught various relaxation techniques and have the opportunity to practice them. Most importantly you will come to understand why it is important to remain calm and relaxed, in mind and body, and also how to achieve this. On the course we also discuss birth place choices and the interventions you may be offered so that you are in a position to make fully informed decisions. We also discuss options available to you regarding the delivery of your placenta and the injections that will be offered to your baby at birth. Finally we run through the different stages of labour so you know what to expect and bring everything you have learnt together so you leave feeling informed, empowered and excited to give birth.


Private classes are also available and can be delivered in the comfort of your own home and at a time of your choosing (subject to teacher availability).  Please email siobhan@thepositivebirthcompany.co.uk to find out more.
