Our Birth Story by Fabien & Alex

  After the course we waited patiently for the birth of our baby. As the time passed we both got more excited, wondering whether we would get a little girl or a little boy.

Our Birth Story by Rachael, Dylan & Noah

I was very nervous about being pregnant, labour and childbirth, so I felt I needed to be as prepared as possible. I also wanted to have some control over a situation I wasn’t sure it was possible to have control over. HypnoBirthing taught me more than how to have a relaxed birth; it allowed me to relax throughout my pregnancy …

Our Birth Story by Sarah and John

My first son, Corban was born in York District Hospital. We then moved to Beverley when I was 17 weeks pregnant. We decided we would like a home birth as Corban would only be 14 months old and we really didn’t want to go into hospital and leave him. I heard about HypnoBirthing and found Sandra’s details and we took …

Eddie’s due date of the 18th of March came and went, however, having completed the HypnoBirthing course with Sandra, we were fairly relaxed about his due date despite constant enquiries from well-meaning friends and family.

Our Birth by Jana & Ondrej

My story was probably quite different to most of HypnoBirthing stories. I always believed that my body is capable of doing what nature intended. However, I was also aware that we don’t live in a society where one naturally comes across opportunities to observe birth, breastfeeding etc and as a society we have fell out of touch with those natural …

Florence Daisy’s Birth

At around 37 weeks of pregnancy, I had a really peaceful sense that labour wouldn’t be too far away. I’d had several periods of regular, strong Braxton Hicks contractions that didn’t progress anywhere but led me to believe that my body was preparing for birth. On the Wednesday, when I was 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant, my husband had …

Kev & Lauren’s Story

After months of trying to conceive and having no look, I decided to meet Sandra to do a course of Hypnotherapy to see if it would help us along our journey. My partner, Kev and I had both had the medical tests to see if there were any problems, which there wasn’t so Sandra focused on me with the sessions. …
