“Thank you both so much for your help during the birth of our baby and all the help you have given us over the past few weeks during the course. It was so lovely to know that our baby had a beautiful, peaceful entrance into the world! We were so happy she is here!! Thank you so much again, we both appreciate so much and will be forever HypnoBirthing converts!!”
Dani and Arran, Reddish (2nd –time mum). Dani had a very calm and relaxed birthing experience with no need for pain relief. Again it was a privilege to be there. Dani birthed her 10lb 3oz beautiful baby girl using the gentle birth breathing techniques with no forced pushing—I didn’t actually know when she was having a surge as she made no noise whatsoever! The room was so peaceful when her baby girl arrived with gentle relaxation music in the background. It was amazing!
“Thank-you for being with us on our special day…
We all loved you being there...
Baby is very alert and calm and I believe that is
down to your teaching….
Again, big thanks for giving your time, energy
and love to us…” Elise and Lee(1st time mum),
Gee Cross, whose birth I was privileged
to be a part of. This picture shows the wonderful Elise
at about 10cm. As you can see she is extremely calm
and relaxed between surges using the HypnoBirthing
”1cm at 4am, 10 cms at 8am, born at 8.45am no drugs needed thanks to the HypnoBirthing techniques learnt at classes, which were really inspiring. Our beautiful baby boy was born weighing in at 7.7lbs.” Tina Dunleavy, first baby and birth, Stockport
“HypnoBirthing gave me a most priceless gift—a childbirth experience that was free of fear.”
“Nothing can describe the beauty of our birthing experience with HypnoBirthing. I never dreamed after having two children with another method that I could have so easy a labour.”
“Our daughter came into this world so much easier than either of us could have hoped for. With Godspeed, keep up the good work of HypnoBirthing.”
“The nurses said they had never seen a woman so calm, yet so strong. They couldn’t put the HypnoBirthing book down.”
“I can't imagine how anyone gives birth without it! HypnoBirthing® kept me feeling calm and in control throughout labour. The contractions were no problem at all..” Kerry Woodcock
I've never felt so well prepared for anything in my life! I went into labour, totally fearless. It was amazing …. I now have a new understanding of what my mind and body is capable of and know that childbirth can be a very, very positive experience. It was phenomenal. Even the midwife said: "I've never seen anyone deliver like that!"
“I didn't have any pain relief not even gas and air...I didn’t need any...I just laid there and listened to my hypo-birthing CD...I felt all the contractions, or surges as we call them now, but it wasn't scary I was just relaxed and concentrated on the breathing that I had been taught.. It was definitely worth having the HypnoBirthing® lessons, a girl that had her baby on Tuesday said the midwives were all talking about it on the labour ward.”
Lindsey & Tony Lloyd
"Using the breathing and relaxation techniques we were taught, I was able to get through twelve hours of contractions with absolutely no pain at all. All I could feel was pressure.
The final part, where I was pushing Mia out, stung a little bit but that was all, and I didn't need any pain relief - not even gas and air.
What's more, my sister saw me soon afterwards and said I looked as if I'd just come back from a health farm, not just given birth!"
I gave birth to Fintan Joseph on Mon 10th May at 20.04. My surges started irregularly about 1pm, I then started timing them about 2pm.
Called Steve home from work at 3pm, because I wanted to relax more. Had a long deep bath, and they seemed to kick in fully then.
Midwife arrived at 7pm (when I was 7cm) and Fintan was born at 8.04pm. Pretty swift really. Oh and I had him at home as planned - which was lovely.
Midwives were well impressed at how calm and serene I looked.
I found that sleep breathing was excellent. It really did make the discomfort go away and is empowering as you know what your body is doing so you work with, instead of against it.
Steve was a fantastic birthing partner, calming me and talking me through my breathing - I wouldn't have been able to do it without him. I played the CD constantly as well, and kept saying the affirmations in my head to make me focus on the job-in-hand.
As for the J breath, I loved it - it made the actual delivery easy-peasy.
I can't rave about it enough. Plus one push and the placenta was out - who needs drugs?
Believe in the power that is HypnoBirthing® and you too will be talked about at midwife meetings.
Our community midwives actually said it was one of the easiest first time-mother births that they had seen in 20 years - now that is some recommendation!! MARIE COOKSEY
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 5 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 use!
The slow breathing was what got me through it - it's a godsend.
Ben did a rainbow relaxation when the surges were becoming very intense, which helped - and the arm stroking was a real rock, as was the background CD music. Elaine Millard
“This is the way all babies should come into the world. It’s beautiful. Keep up the good work.”
“I’m a labour and delivery nurse. I work in the field of obstetrics every day. I can hardly believe my eyes as I watch HypnoBirthing mothers in labor. It’s amazing!”
“Several of my patients have used HypnoBirthing. The result: little or no medication and yet, a calm and more comfortable mother.”
“I’ve been delivering babies for twenty years, and I’ve never seen anything like this method. It’s incredible.”
“I would have to say that HypnoBirthing® is the most amazing phenomenon to observe in action. Women seem to sail through the birthing of their babies, working as a team with their birth partner who is the essential anchor for her.”
