Does my partner have to attend all the classes?

Ideally yes. Birth partners are a really important part of Hypnobirthing success and I recommend they do, if at all possible, so that they can support you and understand birth better, as well as helping them to feel calm too! However, if your partner cannot attend all the classes your mother, sister or a friend could also be your birthing partner or you are of course welcome to come on your own too.

Sometimes partners might feel a bit sceptical about hypnobirthing, but I have found that often partners although initially dubious, see that it all makes a lot of sense and they often especially enjoy the relaxation!
