Birth From Within - Antenatal Classes
HypnoBirthing® Antenatal Classes
Birth from Within provides hypnobirthing classes with a duration of 5 weeks, and each session is 2.5 hours.
Classes are deliberately small and private to make sure you receive the best possible support. There will be a maximum of 2 couples per group. Alternatively, you’re welcome to arrange a private class. All of Birth from Within’s Hypnobirthing classes are held in a peaceful location in Croydon, Victoria.
The best time to begin your hypnobirthing classes is between your 25th and 32nd week of pregnancy. This allows you the time needed to practice the techniques and take control of your birthing experience.
Birth From Within offers classes for small groups, as well as private classes at our premises or in your home (a travel fee may be charged). A non-refundable booking fee of $150 is required to hold your place and the address will be supplied upon receipt of your deposit.
- $450 for the small group class (max. 2 couples)
- $600 private class in Croydon
- $700 private class in your own home (an additional travel fee may be charged)
