The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme Course


The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a complete 10 hour course that runs as 4 x 2.5 hour classes. A workbook and 5 x mp3s are provided to my expectant Clients to support their practice at home.

The 4 week group course costs £225.00.

If you have chosen a third birth partner such as a Doula, Mum or sister they are free of charge. I also include ongoing phone and email support up to the birth.

Private Course

If you would prefer to attend a course for just you and your birth companion(s) at mutually convenient times, the course costs £320.

This includes everything as in the group course and can be held either inmy Studio or in the comfort of your own home.

Mileage charged at 45p a mile over 12 Miles.

Relax, Breathe and Birth

This is a wonderfully relaxing class.

For a very small investment of £25, you will learn some really useful techniques that you will be able to use during your labour.

And, it’s a great way to find out more about the complete Wise Hippo Birthing Programme (£25 is deductible)
