Leah's empowering hypnobirth

Max's beautiful hypnobirth
'The strong bearing down surges were moving baby into position beautifully and after about four I could feel his fury little head about 3cm inside me...

Helena's quick, easy hypnobirth
'My labour and birth were very fast - exactly what I had hoped for. Between the beginning of the first surge and the birth only 3.5 hours passed.

Eva's calm hypnobirth
'...I continued to use the methods Gina taught me after the sessions and found I became incredibly calm and positive about the birthing process...

Finlay's quick and easy hypnobirth
'I was the only one out of my NCT group who had a natural birth with no interventions, and I was the only one who did hypnobirthing and I don’t think that’s a coincidence...Even the midwife commented how lovely a birth it was. Finlay is now 4 months and a very chilled baby; he has been since he was born...' read more

Maya's peaceful home water birth:
'...We are so lucky that the birth went pretty much exactly as we'd envisaged. Baby was born at home in the water.
