Alison’s (quick) VBAC story

                                            Hi Ladies, I used hypnobirthing to help achieve a VBAC. When I found myself absolutely petrified at 30 weeks, having not processed my daughter’s birth 19 months earlier, a couple of friends suggested I give hypnobirthing a go. …

Peyton Rose’s Hypnobirth

One week after her estimated due date, at 11 minutes past five in the afternoon, Peyton Rose entered the world at York Hospital. Weighing 7lb 12oz, with a full head of hair, she stole our hearts instantly. I know birth stories aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. I loved reading other people’s even before I got pregnant but especially so when I …

Hollie and Richard 1st baby born at home

Just wanted to share my hypnobirthing experience in the hope that it might encourage more expectant parents to opt for it. Having had a previous history of anxiety, depression and panic attacks I was looking for something to help reduce any risk of complications during and after birth.

Our birth story by Nicole &Rich

Why did we do a hypnobirthing class? I had researched hypnobirthing as I previously had suffered with anxiety and honestly was scared to death about labour and giving birth, and dragged my slightly skepticism husband along to a taster session with Sandra.

Our first little girl was an IVF baby and so our second pregnancy was completely unexpected. During my first pregnancy I had been quite anxious and worried constantly which …

VBAC birth of Thomas Christopher

Hi Ladies, I used hypnobirthing to help achieve a VBAC. When I found myself absolutely petrified at 30 weeks, having not processed my daughter’s birth 19 months earlier, a couple of friends suggested I give hypnobirthing a go. I struggled with the visualisations, but practised anyway – some days it drove me crazy, other days it sent me off to …

Amanda, Kevin and baby Zak

I found out about hypnobirthing from an advert given out at Yoga Bellies.After having looked at the national hypnobirthing website (www.hypnobirthing.co.uk) to find out more, I contacted Sandra and she invited us for a cup of coffee to chat about the course that she offered. I was already becoming aware of the pregnancy horror stories and wanted to find a …

Our Birth Experience. By Katy and Chris

  Even before getting pregnant, I knew I wanted to experience all that labour and birth have to offer as my sister in law spoke so warmly about her experiences and said she felt  empowered – that she could do anything after it.  However, I have heard so many horrific stories from women and men that I knew I needed …

Chrissy’s Birthing Story

Jacob was due in medical terms, on the 6th April 2010. Having gone through the process of HypnoBirthing, I wish Id taken the attitude of “sometime in April” as 6th came and went with no sign of Jacob. Not that it bothered me. I went around doing what needed to be done. Relaxing with my hypnobirthing CD’s,  practising my breathing …
