This course is very practical, you will learn enjoyable and relaxing exercises to prepare yourself and your partner as best as possible for the birth of your baby. When you book a hypnobirthing course, you will receive course materials with which you can already start preparing. You will receive 5 different hypnobirthing sessions to listen to, online lessons to start learning breathing exercises and the theory behind hypnobirthing and a hypnobirthing book to read.

How does an online course work?

Learn in a small group environment from the comfort of your own home. In this course you’ll benefit from more time to practice the highly effective hypnobirthing techniques and have the chance to interact personally with your teacher who will guide you through the exercises, answer your questions and provide support.

Find out how to create your own affirmations, how to effectively breathe through your contractions, how to release fears and gain confidence, listen to wonderful audio mp3’s to release fears and build confidence for your birth and feel prepared and supported for those precious weeks when your baby has just arrived.

Partners love being a part of the birth, learning powerful techniques that are also useful elsewhere in life.

There are many unknowns at the moment, both for you and all the changes coming into your life with your new baby but also in the world at large. The ability to relax deeply and step away from events feeling calm and positive is more important and beneficial than ever before.

It’s just as easy to learn hypnobirthing online with our courses as face-to-face so please don’t hesitate, book your class now as places are limited, knowing that you will be giving your baby the best start in life.


‘so informative and easy to follow. It all made such sense and
meant I could relax into the birth instead of trying to control every moment
in my usual way. I can honestly say I enjoyed it.’

About Alejandra

I am passionate about empowering women in their experience of birth.

I’m a mom of two lovely girls. The transformation I have made during this process and becoming a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me.

With both births I imagined the most ideal pictures in my mind. Unfortunately with both it ended up with unplanned medical intervention in the hospital. What was very apparent though, is that even though things might not always be plain sailing, you can experience this in the most powerful, loving and beautiful way.

Also, your mind-set can make a big difference in how you experience this. Both of my birth experiences were beautiful, loving and very relaxing and even with the intervention I managed to follow my own intuition and use the hypnobirthing techniques.

How you can do this for yourself, during your birth, I will teach you during one of the 1-day courses in Amsterdam which I would love for you to attend with your partner.

The course includes relaxation- and breathing techniques, visualisations, fear release, affirmations and much much more.

Come and join us and empower yourself in the journey of birth.

I look forward to sharing these tools with you during one of my enjoyable courses. Enjoy your pregnancy and looking forward to hopefully meeting you soon!

I teach floor/water yoga, hypnobirthing, childbirth education, baby swimming and offer Thai/Ayurveda/baby massage, craniosacral therapy and Ayurveda food and lifestyle support.
I am currently based in Bangkok. I live in SE Asia since 1996 in Laos, Thailand and Cambodia, mostly working as a midwife with different organizations. I manage to speak the languages and get insight in the culture and the birth/postpartum traditions. I gave birth to my son in Bangkok in 2002.

hypnobirthing thailand

As an expat mom, far away from family and friends, I deeply missed support. Therefore I set up a private practice in Phnom Penh/Cambodia, providing holistic support to pregnant couples from conception into parenting between 2011-2015. The recent 3 years in Belgium allowed me to take more training. I am 59 now and I am very interested in menopause/andropause and how we can manage this time at best with Ayurveda and hormone yoga therapy.

Feel free to contact me and find out how I can help you. I might speak your language!

About Elke

During my pregnancy I was scared of giving birth. Different thoughts went through my mind such as, that the baby was not going to fit, that it would be very painful and eventually interventions would be necessary. It felt like a bad idea to go into labour for the first time whilst fears and negative thoughts filled my mind. Luckily Helianthe (founder of Mucha Mama) was there to help me.

At 30 weeks pregnancy I booked a private Mucha Mama Hypnobirthing Course. The exercises were easy to do and very effective and enjoyable. By doing the course I gained the confidence that giving birth could be easy, that I could be relaxed and that it could be a beautiful experience. I also gained trust in myself and in my body.

The birth of my beautiful son went very smoothly. The time it took from the first contraction until I was able to hold my baby was only 4 hours in total. It was a wonderful birth and people were very surprised about how quickly it went. No doubt that this became the most beautiful day in my life. I look back on it with a lot of joyful feelings.

As a Mucha Mama Hypnobirthing Teacher with her own positive experience, I love to share hypnobirthing with you. I can help you towards your own positive and beautiful birthing experience.

During the hypnobirthing course I will take you though all the techniques and information you need to stay relaxed and feeling in control during your birth. We will practise with deep relaxation, positive affirmations/visualisations, breathing techniques, calming massage and releasing fears and negative thoughts. The course is very practical and the exercises are very relaxing, even for the daddy-to-be.

I hope to meet you in one of my courses.

About Jenny

Hi, I’m Jenny and one of my favorite quotes is “birth is powerful, let it empower you”.

The dream birth of my daugther Lauren in 2018 gave me so much empowerment and joy that I decided to be an inspiration and teacher for other pregnant women about positive birthing. You’re the one giving birth and there are so many things you can do to positively influence the way you birth and how you feel about it. Hypnobirthing gives you and your partner the perfect tools and techniques to prepare for your calm, focussed and loving dream birth!

I am here to guide you and empower you on this journey.

Happy to meet you in my online class or at your house.

Thank you!

About Helianthe

Helianthe Rusken DCH DHP MBIH is an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, a qualified HypnoBirthing practitioner, trainer and author of the boek Bevallen met Hypnobirthing.

Helianthe has great energy and a lively manner. She teaches with passion and  loves showing couples how to achieve an easier, positive and calm birth. She has over 16 years of  experience as the one of the first hypnobirthing practitioners in Europe.

Helianthe:Our mindset is important with everything we do in life, especially during birth! Fear can be in the way of the natural process, whilst confidence and trust supports it.

Helianthe has used the hypnoBirthing tools and techniques with the birth of both of her sons.  As she had never given birth before and was affected by friends and families’ negative birth stories, she was still somewhat sceptical and still not 100% sure whether birth could be somewhat different than what you see in most movies.

By practising the relaxation and breathing techniques, listening to the hypnobirthing audio sessions and following the program, her first son was  born in hospital without drugs or intervention, a natural birth that took only just under 4  hours. The second time she was pregnant she decided to give birth at home and gave birth naturally to her youngest son in a record-time of 1,5  hours.

Helianthe is the founder of Mucha Mama

About Naomi

Hi, congratulations on your pregnancy and how lovely you found this page! Pregnancy and giving birth are miraculous to me… The first time I witnessed a woman giving birth was magical. I will never forget the moment her baby was actually born. The few seconds of doubt, the disbelief, the amazement of the fact that this was actually a real human-being being born, was so special.

I had two very different experiences when my babies were born. After the birth of my son I wanted a different experience for my daughter. That’s how I came across hypnobirthing. The birth of my daughter was a beautiful, quick home-birth in a birthing pool, just how I imagined. It wasn’t until then, that I realised the importance of the journey and how giving birth determines the start of your career as a mother, but above all how incredibly empowering it can be.

I like to combine knowledge and science with passion and emotion, and I like to give you a full day of focusing on your pregnancy and giving birth. During the course I will help you both prepare for birth in a positive way.

Pleased to welcome you at one of my courses!

Naomi is mother, singer, parental coach and passionate about everything regarding birth: rights, physiology, protocols, communication during your pregnancy and the birth of your baby. She has been active in several work groups, including work groups from the KNOV. She attended workshops and lectures from Sheila Kitzinger, Francoise Freedman and Ina May Gaskin and delved into the physiology of labour.


“Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life”

– Ina May Gaskin

I don’t believe there’s any such thing as a perfect birth. I believe in working with women to find out what will make their birth joyous and empowering, and then giving them the tools to do just that. No right or wrong, just solid and non-judgmental support Birth happens in all shapes and forms. Some births are straightforward, others are complicated. Some are fast, some are slow. What you’ll learn with hypnobirthing is that the Mucha Mama Hypnobirthing course, and in particular my commitment to personalize each course to each couple, in a nurturing way, which means that each birth will be unique and positive because the parents, not only have the tools to remain calm and in stay control, but also to make right up until the moment you’re holding your baby.

Hypnobirthing isn’t a superpower and it doesn’t require a particular power flower belief system. It is entirely logical and with my guidance, alongside plenty of practice and commitment on your side, you can and will have a birth like this. If this relates to you, feel free to book a free skype session to experience what hypnobirthing is like or have a birth chat with me to discover your options.

About Mandy

Congratulations with your pregnancy!

I am Mandy Zuidhoek and I used the effective and easy hypnobirthing tools and techniques with the natural birth of my beautiful daughter and in everyday life.

I studied developmental psychology and I know that a healthy mental attitude about birth and motherhood is very important.

I will take you through the journey in small groups, or in a private course, to learn deep relaxation and positive visualisation in a calm and relaxed setting. In the hypnobirthing course I will learn you practical and effective tools and techniques to help you be emotionally as well as physically prepare for a positive, relaxed and calm birth. Pregnant couple tell me they like my voice during the exercises. And a familiar and nice voice also helps you to relax more.

Hi Mandy

When my birth partner and I heard the word “Hypnobirthing” we were sceptical it would be very meditative. We followed the hypnobirthing course because we heard good (delivery) stories about hypnobirthing and about Mandy the hypnobirthing teacher. Mandy is a good and wonderful trainer, she is positive and has so much knowledge! Realising that what we now know had life changing positive effects was unbelievable. The memories of a positive birth behind me, give me the strength I am capable of anything. Thank you!  much love Katie.


Hi Mandy,

Thanks a lot for the lovely course. We learned a lot and feel much more confident about our birth. I will surely get in touch if I have more questions.

Regards, Sara

The birth was great…

Hi Alejandra,  

Since our little was born (15 of Feb) never had time to text you and give a great feedback.

The birth was great! I did not need epidural and all the time me and Ricardo used your breathing technique and other methods we have learned in your courses. The massage really helped and also Ricardo support was amazing. Every single time he reminded me to relax my shoulders, my face and etc. We really want to thank you for great advices and all information you gave during the courses. It was really userful and thanks to that I managed to give birth naturally (only with pain killers in the last hour).

One more time- thank you!

Warm wishes, Viktorija and Ricardo
