Ruth Sabrosa trained with Maggie Howell in 2011 and taught Natal Hypnotherapy to hundreds of couples before developing her own course. She qualified as a hypnotherapist in 2016 and used her skills and knowledge as a Mother, Birth Companion, Hypnotherapist and qualified Hypnobirthing instructor to create her own complete Hypnobirthing course. It can be taken at any time during pregnancy and is the perfect complement to other antenatal classes you may be attending or it works as a stand alone workshop. Small group classes are usually held in Seaham, County Durham or Muswell Hill, North London and are tailored to individual needs. Ruth also offers a bespoke private course in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the UK online or in person. You can request a private workshop completely tailored to your needs here.

Ruth is an extremely good trainer. Very helpful, tailors training according to participants needs. She is very patient, helpful and reassuring.
Ruth was great, open and encouraging. She was also very knowledgeable and obviously well-researched and prepared. She was really helpful before the course too and answered my questions and sent me info by email. Thank you!
Really enjoyed the experience even though I had apprehensions. What works for my wife is what it’s all about.
I can’t wait to go into labour and feel really positive.
I learned how to be a supportive partner and have skills to remain calm and positive. I feel empowered and excited about our 2nd baby.
I learned how I can support my wife both physically and mentally and how birth is not to be feared.
Great practitioner, good slides, activities and amount of hypnosis exercises and a nice group.
Ruth was excellent – very warm, comforting, friendly and real. Thank you!
Ruth was very helpful, friendly and insightful. Great workshop!
A very enjoyable two days. I feel more confident with my husband. We definitely achieved our objectives of attending the workshops.
The most important thing for me was overcoming my fears. I took a lot out of these 2 days, I feel a lot more confident and prepared.
Ruth was great, very caring, informative and sent extra info after the workshop.
A very personal, tailored workshop. These 2 days have had a hugely positive impact on Sandrina and myself. Ruth has been the best support we could wish for.
This is the best preparation I could have had! I loved the gentle approach and calming voice.
For me the best part was the ‘wrist burn’ exercise where we brought all of the techniques together and it helped me prove to myself that I could respond effectively to the techniques. Also I am really grateful for tailoring the workshop to our needs!
The best part of the workshop was watching my wife gain confidence in her ability to manage the birth process.
Ruth is a great teacher, calm, enthusiastic and communicates her passions and knowledge very well. I enjoyed the workshops very much and would recommend to anyone.
Ruth is very friendly, open, relaxed and professional. The workshop was really enjoyable and I can tell my wife found it very helpful too
The most important thing I learnt from the workshop was that the techniques can be used in any environment, even if things don’t go exactly to plan. Attending the workshop has been a much better experience than envisaged.
She was very open and approachable, not at all intimidating and created a very relaxed atmosphere where I felt comfortable. I learned that birth doesn’t have to be a ‘drama’.
Coming here really helped me look at the primal part of labour and helped me appreciate that the body is remarkable and when left to its devices it takes care of itself
The best parts of the natural pain relief workshop were discussions about positive birth experience, learning new techniques to use in labour and giving me confidence in my birthing ability.
For me, the best part was progressively getting deeper into the relaxation techniques. Feeling myself become more capable and in control.
The best part of the workshop was the breathing technique we learned and understanding what my wife wants for the birth
Ruth has a lovely voice and manner which makes the hypnosis sessions really enjoyable. She is easy to talk to and receptive to questions. Excellent.
Ruth is very calming, confident and approachable. She spoke of personal experiences which was useful. I look forward to listening to the CD and putting into practice what I have learnt
The workshops give a very positive message about birth
I felt much more relaxed and energised after the workshop.
I learned how to become and remain calm and that fears are natural but surmountable if you are positive and calm.
The partner techniques and how he can support me in labour were the most important things we learned.
The most important thing I learnt was that I can manage discomfort with visualisation and that my partner’s breathing can calm me down.
Ruth is lovely. Very friendly, made us feel welcome and took our personal circumstances into account. I’m feeling very positive and empowered now. Many Thanks!
Ruth was very friendly and informative and positive about birthing. The course is a great way to change the mindset to a more positive approach.
Ruth is a warm and kind person who has made the workshops a delight to attend. I will recommend these workshops to friends and family.
An enjoyable & useful day. I feel more relaxed today; and about the prospect of labour
The workshop was very good indeed. I feel really prepared
Ruth is enthusiastic, friendly, northern, perfect. I really enjoyed the course
Thank you for a wonderful class on Sunday. It was really enjoyable, relaxing and affirming. We both found it useful and will be practicing the techniques. You are an excellent teacher and so inclusive of anything any of us brought to the day, so thank you
Ruth speaks with a knowledge and confidence that only experience can give. She made me immediately feel at ease
I left the course feeling so positive I felt like I could have the baby on Saturday night and I really don’t want to lose that feeling. It’s a revelation to feel excited and not entirely anxious. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for a wonderful day on Saturday! We both feel that this was just what we needed and that we can approach the birth in a much more positive and calm way.
