Online Hypnobirthing Course English
On your way to a positive birth experience
Four steps for pregnant women with partner
1. Natural birth process
You will receive information about the birth process, so you know what to expect. We will also talk about your pregnant body and what nature has designed it to do and we will discuss the role of your birth partner, so that he or she can fully support you. Starting point in your personal intention for childbirth. Because every woman, every pregnancy and every baby is unique.
2. Hypnobirthing techniques
With explanations from your hypnobirthing teacher, you will work on breathing and visualisation techniques, positive birth affirmations and scripts, touch and massage techniques and last-but-not least the use of positive anchors.
3. Navigating in birth care
You will learn the ins-and-outs of Dutch birth care and tools to navigate in it. This hypnobirthing course is also suitable for mothers in special circumstances, such as breech presentation - advanced age of the mother - birth by caesarean section - stargazers - longer pregnancies - group B strep infection.
4. The birth
We will discuss your wishes for giving birth and go through the options during labour step-by-step. You will learn to breathe gently downwards and how to feel where your cervix is allowed to open gently and smoothly. And what exactly is a lotus birth? And a golden hour?

Hi, I'm Marise
What is my background
My hypnobirthing experience
Why I am happy to guide you towards your birth
I had never done it before, but I knew I could do it.
On my first visit to my Dutch midwife as a pregnant woman in 2018, I grabbed the first book I saw from the library. A book written by a lady about a natural way of giving birth. Her grandmother was born in Ghana. She described how women in her grandmother’s native country intuitively knew how to give birth and believed in themselves, something she did not always take for granted here in the West. So she had studied hypnobirthing, a method for going into birth relaxed and confident.
Even though I was a therapist, I still doubted it would work. So, pregnant with a half-Ghanean baby, I also took a local hypnobirthing course and soon found that I could build on what I already knew on the outside and inside. So I practised only what suited me and added my own sauce of meditation and bodywork. As the course progressed, my confidence in my body and mind grew. Giving birth. I had never done it before, but I knew I could do it.
I look back on the birth of my baby very positively. The details don’t really matter, but what does matter is that it empowered me in my own ability, and I will take that with me for the rest of my life (and my daughter too!). I wish the same for you.
The hypnobirthing course gives many tools to think about one's own birthing wishes and also to turn around should things go differently than expected. The starting point is the natural process of giving birth and how to support it. Also useful for partners! Marise is a nice and open course leader with whom you feel at ease.

What is important at birth
I was able to "relax" through it very well with the help of the scripts and the anchors and was very relaxed. We are really incredibly grateful for everything you taught us and all the materials we got. It has been such a nice experience and the fact that I have not been scared or nervous for a second is really great. All the practice has definitely been worth it!
