HypnoBirthing Group Course

Group courses are offered live on selected dates and locations in the Netherlands. You will find details on dates and locations below.


For the moment being, due to Covid-19 regulations and personal circumstances, I do not have any scheduled dates for group courses. I will announce once dates are available. In the meantime, I will happily accept requests to teach the course in private, either at your/my home, or online via Zoom. Please contact me to discuss the options. 


The group courses consists of five sessions of approximately 2,5 h each, once a week during five consecutive weeks. They are spread like this to give you time to practice and integrate the techniques you will learn.

If you prefer a more private setting or if you have already taken a HypnoBirthing course in the past and just wish to freshen up your memory, I also offer private courses and refresher sessions by request. Read more here

You can start the course at any point in your pregnancy. The earlier you start, the better, since you will have more time to practice and condition your mind and body. Keep in mind that the course takes five weeks, so starting later than week 35 of your pregnancy may mean you won't have time to finish it before the baby comes.


325 EUR (incl. VAT) 

Note: Many insurance companies will reimburse part of the cost for a course. Please check directly with your provider to know what their policy is.

Bonus sessions upon request, without additional costs​

  • If you are feeling worried or tense prior to the birth, an extra fear release/relaxation session can be arranged.

  • If the baby is breech in late pregnancy, an extra session can be requested where we will use a special breech relaxation script to help the baby turn. This is often found to be very effective!

Teaching language


Who is it for?

The course is for pregnant mothers and their birthing companions/partners. The partner plays an important role in HypnoBirthing®, and it is strongly recommended that they attend the entire course together with the mother.

The course is beneficial for everyone, regardless of what type of birth you are planning to have. It will provide you with tools and knowledge that will leave you prepared to handle whatever comes your way.
