Pregnancy relaxation classes – restarting soon

“Thank you so much for the relaxation classes and techniques. I can remember repeating the birth affirmations to myself at certain points and, although parts of the birth are a blur, I know your classes helped me get through the birth. They were also extremely beneficial in the lead up to the birth in keeping me calm and relaxed about the whole upcoming experience, and ultimately about feeling confident with my decision to give birth in Cheltenham.

Thank you again for everything – I will recommend you to anyone I know that is expecting and be sure to use your services again should a second baby ever be on the cards!”


Classes restarting soon in Cheltenham – get in touch to register your interest (

Pregnancy Relaxation classes are a great opportunity to leave behind everyday stresses and work and spend time focusing on you and your baby. Each class includes a lovely hypnobirthing relaxation session and chat (and refreshments of course!). The last course was fully booked so book your place now!

Perfect if you are new to the idea of hypnobirthing, reading a book, already using the CDs at home or have taken/planning to take a workshop.

You can attend at any stage in pregnancy – from as soon as you know you are pregnant through to having your baby.

Get in touch for more information!

In this weekly session you will:

  • Have an opportunity to spend time focusing on you and your growing baby – away from the distractions of work, other children and other daily demands on your time and attention
  • Learn basic breathing and relaxation techniques that are not covered elsewhere
  • Experience hypnosis in a safe environment
  • Learn to be more positive and see birthing from a more instinctive level
  • Meet a great network of mums – not just first timers!
  • Learn more about pregnancy, labour and birth from a qualified antenatal teacher through a weekly discussion topic – it is like a mini antenatal class for each week of your pregnancy!

Pregnancy Relaxation Classes are also good for women doing NCT or other antenatal classes who want an additional hypnosis and relaxation element to their birth preparation.

“I attended Yvonne’s Pregnancy Relaxation Class at the Isbourne Holistic Centre. The classes I attended were just lovely! The group size on the occasions I attended was quite small (around 6-8 pregnant ladies) which was ideal as it was easy to talk to Yvonne and the other mums-to-be and relate to each others fears and expectations. It was always informal and enjoyable. The hynosis based relaxation session during each class allowed me to just drift into relaxation and used positive suggestions which I feel made me feel a lot more relaxed and positive about to prospect of giving birth. Yvonne is really friendly and welcoming and has a powerfully soothing voice…. and the addition of yummy cakes and drinks at the end of the sessions was a bonus! I would urge anyone interested in her classes to contact her directly as she was very helpful in telling me about the structure of the class before my first visit so I knew what to expect.”
