WHAT MUMS AND DADS SAY
WITH THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SHARED THEIR TESTIMONIALS AND hypnobirthing BIRTH STORIES
Here's a video about The Hypnobirthing Place, from some of the lovely couples I've taught.
Below is a collection of positive birth stories, testimonials and how hypnobirthing helps even when things don't go to plan...
Jess's smooth birth
"We were the talk of the midwife station - the couple who walked in fully dilated, had no pain relief and gave birth to a baby in her waters!"
LU's first pregnancy
"I have learnt a way to dispel my fears, believe in myself and my body and above all, to honestly look forward to the birth of my baby. I'd highly recommend the course"
Susannah's wonderful email to me, which she entitled 'Jasmine's birth story - how Hypnobirthing got me through'.
ELLIE's calm first birth
"It's really incredible how a different mindset can affect the big event. The midwives said it was one of the quickest, calmest births they'd seen."
"This is a whole world of knowledge and advice. The more we learned, the safer we felt. We did NCT and there was nowhere near as much useful information there."
Tallie's water birth
"Having a water birth was the most fantastic experience ever. It allowed me to focus deeply on my breathing.. this relieved me of pain and gave me something to focus on."
Lizzie's 'big' baby
A positive birth story about giving birth naturally to a 10lb 2oz big baby. "The hypnobirthing made me believe and trust in my body... So so amazing".
a therapist’s view
"As a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist... I can appreciate that Zoe is highly skilled and uses her work in amazingly subtle and powerful ways."
Kate's twist in the tale
"Your course really opened our eyes and made us approach the pregnancy and birth in a completely different way. It was with me throughout the birth"
JADE's positive induction
"Despite being induced, all was as good as it possibly could have been and I firmly believe that was because of all the work we did with you."
jemma's positive vbac
"Hypnobirthing really is a lot more logical and practical than the name suggests, and practicing the affirmations and relaxations is immensely powerful."
tansy's smooth induction
"Each minute was magical despite the highly medicalised start + environment. Thank you Zoe. Without the calm you instilled, I'm sure it would have gone a very different way."
Simone's wonderful birth
"Zoe, thanks so much for everything you taught Ben and I on the Hypnobirthing Place course. I think it has changed our lives."
PHILIPPA's first birth
"The breathing and understanding the importance of calmness really helped both me and Tatsuo during the labour. Thank you!"
FRAN's third baby
"I'm expecting my third baby and I have been absolutely astounded by the impact that the course has had on my husband and I."
The clarkes home birth
"We ended up having a completely natural home water birth. It was not Plan A... but I was in such a zone that I couldn't fathom leaving the house!"
LAURA - free from worry
"We'd been trying for a long time to get pregnant so when it finally happened for us I was anxious to say the least. Zoe managed to put all my fears behind us."
LAURA's 2nd pregnancy
"Thank you so much Zoe for turning me from a negative birth-thinker to a positive one. You are a brilliant teacher!"
CARYL - birth centre
"I used the hypnobirthing breathing and visualization that I’d been practicing to breathe out tension (and my baby!) during surges… truly amazing and very positive"
BETH's home birth
"We had a lovely home birth. As a previous hypnobirthing sceptic I would wholeheartedly recommend Zoe as a teacher"
SIAN's first waterbaby
"All the midwives said they would recommend hypnobirthing to everyone and that they could definitely tell the difference... A memory to treasure."
Francesca’s first birth
“I wasn’t thrown... I was mentally prepared to change my preferred birth plan if need be. My focus continued to be on remaining calm and centred”
"After a failed induction with my first baby... I was determined to try and have more say in what happened with my second. I had the most wonderful birth".
