After visiting my midwife and saying that the actual act of giving birth was ‘freaking me out’ she recommended Hypnobirthing. Soon after I contacted Sandra and it was the best thing I could have done. The course has been superb! It’s held at Sandra’s home and in small groups so the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Sandra covered everything that had created a concern for me, from how the body works and what needs to happen to make the birth as easy as possible, to relaxation techniques and creating anchors to help. She covered all stages of pregnancy and how to breath throughout each stage. You go with your partner and both of you learn how to support one another and how your partner can be there for you and help relax you. I came away understanding that the same woman could have 2 completely different births and it all depends on the woman. Without all the knowledge gained in this course I could have been one of those women who struggle and feel immense pain, but, knowing what I now know, I feel confident, I have a detailed birth plan, plus a B and C birth plan, and from thinking I would need pain relief I do not want anything. I have all the tools I need to prepare as much as possible and I am feeling confident about the day I get to meet our baby. Sandra genuinely cares and understands people, she ensures all questions are answered and brings up topics that my mind had not even thought of giving me even more confidence. I would recommend this course to all pregnant women, its money well spent!!
I was looking online at water births when I came across HypnoBirths and the more I looked into it the more I knew I wanted a HypnoBirth they all looked so calm and beautiful. I then contacted Sandra and booked a place on the course. Before the course I wanted a hospital birth and thought people who had home births without pain relief where mad but after the course my outlook on birth changed, I was determined to have a home birth no matter what because I trusted my body and I knew I didn't need drugs to help me give birth because it was such a natural thing. I did get my home birth and it was the best experience of my life. Sandra was so lovely and friendly and answered all my questions. Even after the course she stays in touch so if you need help with anything she is always there and her biscuits where yum. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone better than any antenatal class.
Thank you Sandra, you are amazing and the love and support you have shown us has been lovely.
Steph & Jeff March 2019 Before the hypnobirthing course I was terrified at the thought of giving birth but the course has massively changed how I feel and now I am much calmer and confident in my body’s ability to birth my baby. Each session was very well structured and packed with knowledge and information which has been empowering. There was also a good mix of practical aspects with the breathing exercises and relaxation scripts and the videos of real births were inspirational. The atmosphere of the course was very relaxed, friendly and welcoming so a perfect learning environment. Overall a very comprehensive course which has transformed what I know and think about birth so that I’m now looking forward to the birth of my baby
Sandra was recommended to me and my partner Daniel by family members and several close friends. At first we felt a little apprehensive not knowing what to expect but we were totally blown away by the whole experience. Daniel in particular was initially quite sceptical (as men can be) but he soon began to realise the positive impact that hypnobirthing can have on preparing to birth your baby. It allowed him to understand the important role for him in the whole process.
From the moment we met Sandra she made us feel at ease. She was accommodating and caring and I truly feel that I have made a friend for life-someone I can turn to for advice should I need it. As a first time mummy to be, Sandra gave me the encouragement to turn what can seem to be a daunting experience into a positive one. She taught me the techniques to feel completely in control and to believe in myself.
Opting for private sessions gave me and Daniel the chance to escape from the stresses of everyday life. It was our chance to spend quality time together and to feel in a complete state of relaxation.
