Ellie Cotton – Blossom Birth Empowerment

Helping couples feel confident in their pregnancy and prepare for a positive and empowering birth


I’m a mother of two and have had two extremely different birth experiences!

I had a very medicalised first birth with my son and unfortunately did not have the experience I had hoped for.

When I was then pregnant for the second time with my daughter, I was very nervous and worried about a repeated negative experience. My partner felt the same and we both wanted to gain confidence and control! We found a KGH course with a wonderfully positive and passionate lady, but were quietly sceptical of ‘hypnobirthing’. However, when we finished the course I felt significantly more confident and a lot less stress and pressure, we both felt overall more positive, knowledgeable and empowered to make decisions that were right for us.

And then we had our baby girl! It was a vastly different experience to our first birth, I felt strong, powerful and confident throughout the labour and birth. My partner was a confident advocate and provided the support I needed. The whole experience was incredibly empowering and transformative and I can honestly say we enjoyed it!

My hypnobirthing experience was truly life changing and now I have the calling to share these techniques and help other women and families to have a positive, confident and empowering birth!

Are you ready to embrace a calm, confident and empowering birth experience?
