Become an Instructor

 

We are so pleased that you would like to know more about becoming a Hypnobirthing  Instructor with The Little Birth Company (The LBC). 

Wendy & Melissa have been in the birth world for many years  and have been teaching Hypnobirthing for 8yrs and 6yrs respectively in their own businesses.

We are so excited to have founded The Little Birth Company together, we complement each other perfectly with our experience, knowledge and skills and have the same passion for supporting women and their birth partners on their journey to birth and beyond. 

Wendy has run her own birth business since 2011 but has been in the birth world for 24yrs.  Initially as a Midwife, now working as a Hypnobirthing Instructor, Birth Coach & Doula.

‘I have taught several programmes over the last 8-9 years but constantly felt pulled and inspired to write a birthing programme that was flexible and adaptable to my clients.

It has been my absolute dream to bring together a group of Instructor’s who feel supported both in teaching Hypnobirthing but who are also armed with the support and knowledge to establish and run a successful business.

A family of Instructor’s with a common purpose, to educate, empower and support couples to have a positive birth.  Whilst we don’t preach about a ‘perfect’ birth, we do encourage a woman to know her power, that she is strong and capable both mentally and physically.  I believe in informing couples so that they know that the power is in their hands, with this in mind, I truly believe that whatever turn their birth takes it will result in a positive experience.’

Melissa trained as a Hypnobirthing Instructor in 2013 and completed training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2015. 

‘Like Wendy I have taught different Hypnobirthing programmes over the past 6 years. Each offered something different but for me the key was flexibility. I knew that I needed to adapt my teaching according to my clients needs and also to whatever was going on in my own life at that time. 

As a working Mum I need to be able to fit my teaching in around school runs and school holidays as well as a very supportive husband who works away some of the time.  

I found that training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist deeply expanded my understanding of Hypnobirthing. I am passionate about offering a programme that gives you this knowledge without totally boggling your mind!'

How does it work?

Our key focus has been to create a programme that is totally flexible.  We believe as professionals we are all capable, and best placed to decide the best way of sharing the information and supporting our clients.  The needs of the clients are paramount, not everyone has had the same previous experience and one client’s needs can be very different to another.

We wanted to create a course that would give Instructor’s the artistic licence to share the programme in their own unique way.

So you will have access to a teaching powerpoint, instructor manual,  client handouts and manual. However it is your choice how you deliver it, you will be free to adapt to your client’s needs. Of course ensuring that the basis of The LBC Hypnobirthing is shared and you can use the powerpoint/manual  to guide you but ultimately it is down to you. You can decide how to structure the course; there is no restriction on how many sessions you teach it over etc.

However, if you are adding content other than what we teach in The Little Birth Company you must ensure that you are trained and have the suitable insurance for that addition.

The Little Birth Company cannot be held responsible for any additional information that you include in your course.

You will be part of a closed FB community for Instructor’s where we can all learn and share together.  You will also be supported with regular trainings and Instructor “Meet Ups’ that will involve the odd glass of Prosecco and cake.  

You will feel part of a supportive family and will be welcomed to participate and become involved in its growth.
