I have been teaching Hypnobirthing for the last 5 years in Wiltshire and would love the opportunity to do the same for you. Please see my website at www.wessexhypnobirthing.co.uk for more details
I want to empower women to have the best birth experience they can.
Hypnobirthing gives you all the information you would expect from an antenatal class, but goes one stage further, giving you and your partner the tools to cope with whatever twists and turns birth takes, wherever you decide to have your baby.
What does the course cover?
- Techniques for breathing and deep relaxation to use during birthing
- The anatomy and physiology of what is happening, so that you can fully trust your body's ability to birth your baby naturally and easily
- How your birth partner will play an integral supporting role during your Baby's birth
- Completing your Birth Plan
- Deep relaxation, to eliminate any existing fears or anxieties surrounding birth
- I will show you inspiring videos of women using Hypnobirthing to birth their babies with comfort and ease!
- You will meet a couple that have already Hypnobirthed to ask them questions and discuss their experience.

just to let you know that we welcomed Molly Ivy May into the world at 12:55 AM on 2 August weighing 7 lbs 3 oz she was born in the birthing centre in the pool, with a little gas and air. Staying relaxed and doing the breathing made a huge difference. Wendy went into labour naturally on the first and we stayed at home until 7:30 PM, we were home with our little girl by 10:30 AM on 2 August, and can't remember a time when she wasn't here she came out calm and alert just like the births we had watched.
We are not sure if it was the script, the recipe or if she was just ready... I guess we'll never know!
I just wanted to let you know that William and I had our little boy on July the 70s. I had him at home in the pool as planned, he weighed 9lb 1.5oz and was born after six hours of "active" labour. We called him Harry John. Although I used some gas and air we both felt that the Hypnobirthing course and experience really helped us to achieve the birth we had hoped for

we also went for a home birth in the end but couldn't fit a pool in without dismantling furniture, so...
Ethan George was born on 12 July at home, weighing 7 lbs 10 oz. By the time we called the midwives when my waters went they were surprised to find me fully dilated (I had had contractions from about 2 AM but just stayed in bed and did surge breathing till Andrew woke up at 6 to go to work then tried to move around a bit more and listen to the CD). Ethan arrived at 17:48 after about an hour of pushing, I found the J-breathing just wasn't enough in the end and had to put some welly in (we joked that I was just too relaxed) but managed without any pain relief.
Andrew is definitely a Hypnobirthing advocate now and said he really enjoyed the birth which was the biggest bonus for me.
All the best, Lisa and Andrew - at Swindon
I was induced at 12 noon and had Jack at 11:50 PM. I had contractions from first input of the propus (think that's how you spell it) which intensified as the day went on and by 9:30 PM I was ready to push. Only in the delivery room did I have gas and air singing to take that! I loved's is the feeling of Jack coming out, it wasn't painful at all. It's a feeling I cannot describe. I feel I missed out on these feelings with my first birth due to having two doses of epidural. I believe the positive thinking helped a great deal as well as the trust I had in my body to birth baby Jack. The midwives in the delivery room were ever so quiet and when I asked if I was doing it all they replied out was doing everything as I should and I believe that is because I let my body do the work and not my head.

Just to let you know that I gave birth to a beautiful baby last week - he arrived at 2:27 AM on Thursday, 13 May. The Labour was about 11 hours, but I was so relaxed that the midwives didn't really believe I was in full blown labour until we had about five hours left to go! They were amazed when they checked me out and I was 5 cm dilated. In fact they said I should just keep on relaxing and sent Ben and I to the pub next to the hospital for an hour! I had no pain relief at all, although I did jump into the pool, more because it seemed a shame not to when it was there for and use! The slow breathing was what got me through it - is a godsend. Ben did a rainbow relaxation when the surges were becoming very intense, which helped - and the arm stroking was written a real rock, as was the background CD music.
