When should I start learning hypnobirthing?

Ideally you would start learning hypnobirthing from 20 weeks pregnant. However, we have taught many mums to be in our classes up till 38 weeks. Birth partners are encouraged to come to the courses too. 

Is it worth paying for an antenatal and hypnobirthing course?

Yes is the simple answer. Hypnobirthing teaches you invaluable skills that help for pregnancy, labour and birth, as well as parenthood. I often use my relaxation tracks and breathing techniques (and I had my last baby in 2021). Hypnobirthing can provide you and your birth partner with lots of techniques so you feel more in control of your birth, you know your options, can prepare a birth plan, and know you had the right birth on the day. 

Does hypnobirthing work in the NHS or in hospital?

Yes absolutely. A Hypnobirth is any type of birth, including c-sections, inductions, water birth, home birth, birth in hospital, first time mum, second time mum, third time mum. Our courses are tailored to you and provide you with lots of information to prepare for your labour and birth. 

What age is best for baby massage?

Our baby massage courses are suitable for babies from 4 weeks - actively crawling. 

How early can you start baby massage?

You can start massaging your baby from the day that they are born. Our classes start from 4 weeks up to actively crawling. 

Is massage necessary for a newborn baby and what are the benefits?

Your newborn or older baby will love being massaged. We will show you all the lovely moves to help your baby if they are suffering with constipation, digestion, sleep, colic, cold hands and feet, relaxation, tummy time, teething and bonding. it is a lovely activity to do with your baby, and in our classes it is a great way to meet other mums over a drink and biscuits from the local area. 

How old should baby be for yoga?

We have two different baby yoga courses. Our first baby yoga class is suitable for babies from 6weeks-6months, and our older baby yoga class either start from 4 months (15 weeks) or some older baby classes start for babies 5 months (roughly 20 weeks) - actively crawling.

Is baby yoga good for baby?

Our lovely baby group class in Sevenoaks focuses on yoga. Yoga is great to build strength whether in pregnancy, in babies, toddlers, children or as an adult. For babies it helps with colic, relaxation and to meet development milestones. We also have lots of fun playing with sensory toys to help babies learn new skills. 

What should I do if my baby is crying?

If your baby is crying, upset or being fussy, it is always great to get out and come to a baby activity with us. It is a lovely chance to meet other mums who can share advice and for you to not feel alone. The baby classes often relax babies and provide them with lots of fun stimulation. 

When you I do mum and baby yoga?

Our classes are a great class for mums and babies, as well as pregnant mums. Our hypnobirth classes are a great way to relax in pregnancy. Our baby yoga classes allow mums have to do a few squats and swing babies for some gentle exercise. However, the majority of the class is to help babies with yoga moves so that they can build co-ordination and strength to meet milestones. 

What is toddler or children's yoga?

Our children or toddler yoga classes held in Sevenoaks start for kids age 1 and confidently walking - 7 years old. Most of our classes are run for pre-school children.
