Why Fertility2Birth?
Firstly we do not tie you to us. Unlike many other hypnobirthing companies we believe in giving our practitioners wings and then letting them fly. Many other training schools will demand annual subscription fees and take a percentage of all practitioner earnings. We only give- once you are qualified you will have a listing on our website for as long as you wish. We offer ongoing support and the option to buy copies of Hypnobirth Yourself at a reduced rate. You can add to your income by selling to clients, or give away with your hypnobirthing package. We originally wrote the fertility2birth program because we were not happy with the qualifications in birthing and fertility that we had already achieved. We did not like the fact we could not personalise the course structure to suit each individual client and also did not feel the structure of some of the course was full enough. It is a requirement of many other organisations to make you purchase course material from them for each of your clients, this means extra cost to you, and extra income for them. At Fertility2birth we do not ask this of you, we teach you the tools needed to produce your own. We also provide you with the necessary contacts to do this. We feel that this makes it more cost effective and allows you to be in charge of how you work with clients. We wanted the Hypnobirth section of the course to be a complete birth education programme, not just about hypnosis, and because of our previous medical background this was possible. What you will find with the fertility2birth is an amazingly successful HypnoBirth programme that you can tailor around each of your clients. If you feel that it is sufficient as it is you can simply follow the course structure outlined in a very simple format for easy use. However if you feel a client would benefit from something extra, or you feel there are parts irrelevant to a particular client, you can choose to change the structure to something you find more suitable. Although we can provide you with pre-recorded audios to give to your clients we encourage you to record your own using the scripts provided. Some of our practitioners even encourage the birthing partner to record the audio so that it is personalised to each client. This can eliminate the problem of language barriers or use of words that are common in another country but not here. Our programme is straightforward, there is not much that the couples need to remember or do just a few techniques that help so much! It is beneficial to remember that a pregnant woman may still have to work full time until just a few weeks before she gives birth. This can mean that time is a constraint. Our programme does not require the couples to spend hours at home on ‘homework’. Therefore the most important things are practised daily getting the amazing results we so enjoy.
What if I'm not a hypnotherapist?
If you’re not a hypnotherapist, you can still study and become a qualified Fertility2Birth HypnoBirth practitioner. You will not however be able to get the fertility qualification as this involves the use of specialised hypnotherapy techniques.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself, a pen and some paper. We will provide you with a hard copy of all course material and a computer disc containing the same. We will also provide course notes so that you do not have to write everything down.
How much can I earn?
This really depends on you. We do not specify a price for you to charge that of course is up to you. Sometimes geographical location can make all the difference. We believe that every pregnant woman should take our HypnoBirth course. Using Hypnosis to help with labour has been shown to reduce the length of the first stage of labour by hours, and the second stage from an average of 50 minutes to 37 minutes.
How popular is the use of Hypnosis to aid birth?
More and more people are using hypnosis to aid birth in the UK, thanks to exposure in both local and national media. We get many recommendations from local midwives and other birth practitioners.

The Oxford School of Hypnosis
(Reena Biswas)
Location: Distance Learning


The Oxford School of Hypnosis offers a range of approved CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses which count towards the GHR's annual CPD requirement for continued registration.
The aim of the masterclasses is to enable qualified hypnotherapists and other therapists experienced in the application of applied hypnosis, to add to their existing skills and knowledge.

2. The study hours are to be used as a guideline, and are in addition to the time required for completing the homework assignment.
3. Students should only enrol on a CPD course if the topic has not already been included on their practitioner level course.
4. Maximum time allowed for completion and submission of a homework assignment is one year, in order to receive a certificate.
5. Email/telephone support is available to students enrolling on any of the listed online CPD courses.
6. The course notes are comprehensive, and there are no accompanying CDs or mandatory reading lists.

7. I am available for teaching CPD courses on behalf of other training schools and to groups.
