WHAT HYPNOBIRTHING COUPLES ARE SAYING..
"Just wanted to let you know our baby girl arrived on the 30th October at 9:30am.
The home birth went amazing- a relatively short 9 hour labour that progressed well and without any issues or complications!
Everything you taught us at Hypnobirthing was an immense help - I listened to my affirmations throughout the whole labour and was calm and relaxed the entire time.
I can honestly say I felt no fear leading up to and throughout the labour, and while there were definitely challenging parts I didn't feel what I would describe as "pain".
Our midwives even commented on how serene I was! I couldn't be happier and am so thankful to have found hypnobirthing as it allowed us to have the birth we dreamed of! Thank you!! "
