The course includes the Hypnobirthing book, all scripts,  important handouts  and Victoria’s guided relaxations on MP3 x 3


A great course – very informative, hands on and I took a great deal from it.  Victoria explains things in a great way for a man to understand the birth process from a woman’s perspective.  I’ve found we do have a big part to play and can do a lot to help our partners through much of the process of giving birth. I’d encourage anyone to give this course a try, I guarantee you’ll take so much away from it.                                                                                                       Shaun Morton, Newcastle-Under-Lyme
