Welcome to the Nurture Hub

Welcome to the Nurture Hub

We founded the Nurture Hub with the aim of offering support to families in our local community, helping them to live well at every life-stage, from pregnancy onwards.

We were inspired to create an organisation that made it easy for busy people to access all of the activities and support they’re looking for in once place.

Through our own experiences and those of our friends, we realised that, although organisations like NCT provide invaluable support during pregnancy, families want to feel nurtured and engaged in a supportive network of peers long-term. Our team is small and dedicated to creating long term relationships with our clients.

We aim to develop fitness, health and wellbeing services that grow with you, developing in-depth knowledge of your individual needs with the wrap around support of a familiar community network. From helping you enjoy an empowering birth experience right through to helping your family live a healthy lifestyle, we will be there to support you.

The Nurture Hub offers holistic, value for money packages and one-to-ne sessions and we will be developing courses and retreats on well-being topics, from yoga to hypnobirthing to coaching and more. So, watch this space and follow us on our budding Facebook page where we’ll share information about new events and special offers.

We aim to grow as our families grow and will develop further courses and classes in response to your changing needs and milestones. Weare based in South Norwood in South East London and were happy to come to you for one to one sessions or if you would like to host a small group with friends.

7 STEPS TO SELF CARE

Hypnobirthing at the Nurture Hub

Hypnobirthing at the Nurture Hub

Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education, equipping parents with the empowering knowledge that birth is a natural process which the body is designed for. Parents are also equipped with the tools to take control of their journey and be responsible for their birth experience.

Hypnobirthing combines multiple simple tools that, when combined, create a powerful change in our ability to trust our natural instincts; the use of up and down breathing, scripts, visualisations and affirmations allow women to let go of fear, remain calm and relaxed and allow the natural process of birth to unfold into a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Hypnobirthing is a reassuring and logical way to reframe your perception of birth and see the process for what it truly is: the natural process of bringing parents and baby together that the female body is designed to do. It need not be a painful and fearful process and hypnobirthing will provide you with tools to utilise this knowledge, remain calm and in control and achieve a peaceful birth. Hypnobirthing will empower you with knowledge that will enhance your decision making and conversations with your medical care givers and help you to enjoy your individual birthing experience.
