Caryl, first time mum to baby Ianto, Greenwich
Caryl's positive birth story is below in pink. Here's a testimonial from her husband Alex...
I did a hypnobirthing course with my wife over the phone with Zoe and I'd strongly recommend the course, and Zoe in particular, to anyone considering it.
As a first-time father, it was really informative about the birth overall as well as really helping me to feel empowered about the positive role I could play - both in preparation for, and during the birth.
And Zoe was brilliant - open, knowledgeable and happy to laugh with us when some of the exercises initially drove us to giggles rather than transcendence! I approached the experience with a relatively open mind, but it confirmed for me that you don't have to be a certain 'type' of person to get or benefit from hypnobirthing.
It's a practical, effective way to give anyone some basic knowledge and techniques that will help improve your experience of childbirth, however and wherever you choose to do so.
