Private classes: £390 per couple

With a private course you may feel more at ease asking any questions or discussing any worries you have. You may also find the privacy more beneficial when we are practising the relaxation techniques. In your own home you will be more comfortable and you will be practising hypnobirthing in the same environment you are likely to be in during the first stage of labour.

If you would like to book a private course, we will arrange mutually convenient times and dates. We usually teach the course over two days but we can also split it over four half days or evenings.

COVID 19 UPDATE: Face to face private courses are now available again in your own home. Appropriate safety measures such as social distancing, regular hand washing and hand sanitiser will be in place. We can also facilitate the course outdoors (eg in your garden) if you would feel more comfortable with this option, weather permitting. Please email to discuss your options.

Group classes: £275 per couple

Held in your teacher's home in either Walton on Thames or Byfleet, you can learn The Calm Birthsmith Hypnobirthing course alongside other couples. The small class sizes  (maximum three couples) and relaxed atmosphere make it is easy to get know others who are expecting a baby around the same time as you.

The course is run over two days and a light lunch is included.

Group courses have been temporarily suspended due to Covid 19, however please email if you would like to hear when courses start up again, or to discuss a private course in your own home.

What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing helps you to have a smoother, more comfortable birth.


It is so effective because it uses a combination of logic and science, with some relaxation techniques and gentle hypnosis.

Who is The Calm Birthsmith?

Hi I’m Rachel, Mummy to George, and (hopefully) your hypnobirthing teacher!


I had a wonderful birth using hypnobirthing - birth can be so incredible and empowering. I decided to train as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher because I want to help more women like you to have positive births.
