classes



My little pickle classes take elements from hypnobirthing, mindfulness and neuroscience to ensure you have the right tools and knowledge to have an empowering and positive birth and postnatal experience. 

As well as helping you and your birth partner prepare for your birth we will also spend some time  preparing for the postnatal period. I want to help you feel as calm and confident about this postnatal period as you do about your birth. 

I offer a range of courses to suit all circumstances; for those wishing to connect with other families, to those who want the flexibility and personalisation of a private course, to couples who have already done a similar course or those who are short on time or who cannot commit financially to the longer courses but would like to benefit from learning and practicing tools for a positive birth experience!






I also offer a weekly pregnancy and bitesize birth preparation class at Yoke Yoga Studio. T
his class is an ideal way to find some time to look after yourself each week, practice relaxation techniques, drink some tea and connect and share with others 

Where: Yoke Guildhall St, Folkestone 
When:  Fridays 5.30- 6.30pm 
£10 per class if block book, £12 drop in 

 

Group Classes

This course is spread over 4 weeks to give you plenty of time to practice the techniques you will  learn, ask questions and make connections with other members of the group. The  more you practice the more you will get out of it it and the weekly group is a gentle way to check in and encourage and nurture a good habit.

The classes are held at  my home, close to both Folkestone Central and Folkestone West stations. Free parking is available. It's a cosy , informal setting- ideal for the guided relaxations and getting to know the rest of the group.
