Relax & Prepare
Holistic Birthing Classes
Are you feeling anxious or overwhelmed about your birth?
The combination of empowering information, hypnobirth techniques, and deep relaxation in my classes will leave you feeling much calmer and more confident about your birth
Are you struggling to make time for yourself in this pregnancy?
Coming to classes each week gives you a chance to nurture yourself and connect with your body and your baby, whether you are busy with work or other children at home
Do you want to involve your partner in birth preparation?
The classes are for women and birthing people only, but I know how important it is to involve your partner in birth, so I also offer hypnobirthing courses and workshops where they learn how best to support you
Do you want to meet others?
Good Enough Mama classes often have a supportive mix of people in their first and subsequent pregnancies and there is plenty of time to chat and connect with others

“Ali is amazingly supportive and genuinely caring about the Mamas she's teaching! This is my second pregnancy attending her birthing classes and this time they have been online because of lock down. I can honestly say that I do not feel like I have missed out at all. She's gone out of her way to provide the info and support we have needed as a group and to ensure we feel connected with it being virtual rather than face to face, often over and above what we've paid for or expected. I cannot rate her highly enough.”
“My husband and I attended Ali’s active birthing workshop when pregnant with our second baby after our first son was stillborn. We were understandably apprehensive about the class but when I contacted Ali she was incredibly caring and understanding. The course content is invaluable. Ali is so knowledgable and the course gave us the skills and confidence to feel calm and in control about labour, and to have the positive birth experience we wanted.”
“I attended Ali's classes during my pregnancy and my partner and I attended the couples course. I found the women only class very useful and it was great to take time out for myself and had the chance to meet lots of other lovely mums to be as well. The classes gave me the knowledge and confidence to approach the birth of my little girl calmly. My partner also found the couples class extremely useful and he understood how he could help me during my labour. I certainly believe that attending classes with Ali was a key element to my natural, drug free birth.”
I'm Ali (Good Enough Mama). I've been running active birth and hypnobirth antenatal classes and workshops for the past 7 years. I originally trained with The Daisy Foundation, and I now offer hypnobirthing programmes with The Little Birth Company.
As well as my passion for helping you to have a more positive birth experience, I am a qualified counsellor and mindfulness teacher.
This means I can be there to truly support every step of your journey through parenthood, from reducing fear and anxiety about birth, to helping you in the early days (potentially dealing with PND or birth trauma), and beyond, with all the joys and challenges that come with having a baby.
