I first discovered Hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my second child.
My first birth had not been ideal; whilst I’d images of the ‘perfect’ drug free birth, I didn’t have the tools to help me achieve it, and after a long labour I had a C-section – which left me feeling like I’d ‘failed’.
I knew things had to be different with my second, hoping to have a natural birth, my husband and I did a hypnobirthing course. This time when labour started, I immediately felt deep inside ‘I can do this’ and 75 minutes later my son was born – without drugs or interventions. I felt like Superwoman, so different to how I’d felt after my first.
Since then I’ve made it my mission to help as many women as possible have a better birth, so regardless of how or where you give birth, regardless of whether you have a vaginal birth or C-section, you enter into motherhood feeling like the Superwoman you are.
Thank you so much for your wonderful pregnancy yoga classes and hypnobirthing course. All of which really contributed to me having the most amazing and special birth of our daughter….It was just so magical and perfect! I was so euphoric to have my beautiful baby in my arms and couldn’t believe how quickly and easily she had arrived! Cressie has been the most calm baby since and I truly believe this is because she had the least distressing birth possible.Charlotte (hypnobirthing & pregnancy yoga)
The word ‘hypnobirthing’ can be a bit misleading, people imagine they’ll be put into a trance and told birth will be easy, but that’s not what hypnobirthing’s about.
Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education, designed to release fear and build confidence, so you enjoy your pregnancy and look forward to giving birth. The course is a really practical preparation for birth, that leaves couples feeling informed, confident and excited about their baby’s birth.
I can’t thank you enough for yoga and the hypnobirthing course, both really made my birth such an amazing experience….Hypnobirthing really worked for me. Jeff and I were a team and I really felt we did it together. I really can’t recommend it enough even student midwives were asking to come in as they had never seen such a calm birth before!Louise (hypnobirthing & pregnancy yoga)
During the course you’ll learn how to relax the mind and body, leading to a more comfortable and often shorter labour. You’ll become empowered to make decisions that are right for you and your baby, wherever you give birth. You’ll learn breathing techniques and yoga positions to open the body during labour, leading to a calm, relaxed, often faster birth. You’ll be supported whatever your birth choices are, whether that’s to go drug free, have an epidural or an elected C-section.
Couples often finish a course saying they can’t wait to give birth now – because they know they have the tools to have the best birth possible. I feel confident that you’ll feel the same and I look forward to helping you on that journey.
I would recommend hypnobirthing to everyone – it helped me have a much more positive birth experience after having a difficult one with my first. Thank you so much Donna for your yoga classes and hypnobirthing!Dr Jas Birha (hypnobirthing & pregnancy yoga)
