Mellow Mumma workshop will
positively prepare you AND your birth partner for the awesome day you meet your baby.
It’s that simple!
get the chance to
face your fears head on in a supportive, friendly & non-judgemental
environment. You'll realise fear is
totally unproductive & serves you no
You'll learn about the amazing, innate ability of your body &
power of your mind. You'll trust your instincts & totally own your birth experience.
I run one two-day group workshop (up to five couples) each month.
A workshop will either be two consecutive Sundays or over one whole weekend.
The totally relaxed and informal day will start at around 9.45am for a cuppa meet and greet, to be on a roll by 10am, and we'll finish at approximately 5pm. I will provide yummy refreshments for break times and ask that you bring your own lunch or treat yourselves and go to the pub or a local cafe (venue/location dependent of course).
If you know any other lovely pregnant friends who would be interested in taking part in a workshop with you exclusively, I would be really happy to put on an additional workshop per month for your little gang. Obviously we'd work out the logistics together, but ideally the workshop would be spread over four weekday evenings (from 7-9.45pm ish) There would need to be a minimum of three couples to make this work,
If a group setting is just not for you, for whatever reason, that's totally cool too. I also run private workshops, either from my home in Bolney, or from the comfort of your own home, (most couples find this preferable). Please contact me for further details about private sessions, as I'll work with you to work out logistics and tailor content to suit you and your personal needs, fears and concerns.
Workshops are beneficial at any stage of pregnancy but you’d get the most from it between 24-35 weeks. If you're super anxious though, the earlier the better. Once you've done the workshop, the skills will be with you for the rest of ever! You'll also just love being pregnant for the rest of your pregnancy, there is absolutely no harm in that, and its not like you'll forget anything!
There is absolutely no need for you to be on your best behaviour! Workshops will be super chilled, really informal, relaxing, fun, and above all a great opportunity for you to spend time focussing on your bump and your baby! We'll all get to know each other and have some weird and wonderful discussions, in a totally safe and non-judgmental environment. You would get masses out of the workshop if you came by yourself, but really, your birth partner (whether they are the father of the baby or not) will get a hell of a lot from it too, they're often the ones leaving a changed person at the end of it, and it total awe of what your body and mind is capable of! I would actually say that they can gain as much from the content of the workshops as you, they’ll leave feeling uber confident and super psyched about their role in the whole awesome birth process and even better, you’ll be relaxed and calm, knowing that they’ll completely support you in the best way possible. Together you will rock your birth experience, own every minute of it and be a solid-as-a -rock team, in total control throughout!
Two-day workshops start at £310

I had my doubts about hypnobirthing at first but we found it really useful for the big day. Our little one ended up being born at home (unplanned) as my wife and I felt so relaxed with the breathing techniques we learnt, the midwives didn't realise how far along she was! Georgie's sessions were well structured and her approach is spot on, thank you!

Eeek...I know what you're thinking; that's a hell of a lot more blurb right there, (yawn...)
And yes, you're right, but I think it's the teacher in me that thinks it's pretty important that you know what you're signing up to and totally get what you'll be learning about...so maybe you'll choose to scroll past this bit...or if you're a bit of a geek, (like me!) You'll want to find out more, so get stuck in!
The power of Relaxation & Hypno-breathing
During the first session we'll focus very much on your mental preparation for birth, obviously super important, and an area often glossed over or totally missed on other antenatal courses. You'll face your fears head on and realise they were probably never even yours to begin with! You'll practice the massively crucial skills of effective breathing (in lots of different ways), and how your birth partner will be able to support you with this...
So, here's what you'll learn...
Really easy, natural ways to deal with the massively powerful sensations of labour and birth
Self-hypnosis skills to overcome fear and increase your confidence and trust in your innate ability to give birth
Effective breathing and deep relaxation techniques
How fear or anxiety is every woman's archenemy; especially when giving birth!
To unravel the massive tangle of fear that's built up in society around childbirth and realise you don't need any of it...
How your partner can effectively keep you focused, calm, and in control...
The actual Hypno-birth Preparation
Session two is where it all gets real! It's a really practical day to help you and your birth partner positively prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for the birth. You won't just be looking at what happens to your body just before and when you're in labour, but you'll be utterly amazed by the complex emotional and hormonal stuff too.
During session two you will learn:
Real, practical techniques to help you stay focused and relaxed during the birth including massage, using a birth ball and birthing positions
How your body works best during labour and what you can do to help it
Practical tools and techniques for your partner to keep you calm, relaxed and ease discomfort during the birth
Understand the vital importance of the wonderful cocktail of hormones involved in giving birth
How your emotions change during the labour and signs to look for
Effective ways to work with the medical team supporting you, this is especially beneficial for your birth partner; they’ll really learn how to look after you, and feel in control.
And after all of that, the absolutely amazing thing is: the skills you'll learn will be with you for the rest of your lives and you'll be able to call upon them whenever you need, whether that be not freaking out at the dentist, feeling uber powerful when faced with stressful situations (or annoying people!) at work, or keeping your cool when your little darling is having a screaming tantrum on the floor in Sainsbury's (damn that Peppa Pig comic!)
I really love this course. It has helped me prepare for the birth of my second child so much after a traumatic first birth experience. Couldn't recommend this more. Thank you so much Georgie
