I was a first-time mum in 2016, and I thought I already knew most of what I needed to know. I'm a biology teacher, and what I didn't know, I'd just Google, right? Everybody does it, so giving birth must just be easy, I'll be fine. In amongst my Googling, I did come across Hypnobirthing, but wasn't really interested in finding out more.
More than anything, I wish I had found out more and utilised Hypnobirthing when my son was born. I was in labour for three days, I was totally unprepared, and I ended up traumatised and terrified of the possibility of ever needing to go through that again.
When I became pregnant for the second time, I was determined to make sure it was a more positive experience. I promised myself that if hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for, I would teach others and help them have the same positive experience.
... and hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for... and more.
It's a logical, evidence-based approach to pregnancy and birth, and it gave me all of the options and information I needed.
My husband was sceptical at the start but really enjoyed learning about the biology of birth and was relieved that he was given a specific role in the birth. The relaxation techniques were a great resource during my pregnancy and when my waters broke in the middle of the night, we were both prepared, calm and confident.

"I'd been living in complete fear about how labour will be. This taster session alone has educated me about what your body does during labour but also started to change my mindset about how to stay positive not only in labour but in the lead up to it as well.
We deliver one-to-one and group courses in the Swansea, Neath Port-Talbot and Llanelli areas. Courses are usually run over 4 evening sessions but I am flexible and it is possible to deliver it in two longer sessions.
All courses have been adapted to be delivered online. Some clients actually prefer this option.
