Oh lovely, have heart you are not alone! We understand exactly how you are feeling. We felt EXACTLY the same and we are here to give you the exact tools you need to do this your way. We are so glad you have found us. We can help you feel calm and confident about your birth, We really have got your back!
Who are we?
We are Ray, Sophie and Christy. With two children each we’re pretty well set to tell you what a huge difference hypnobirthing makes (we all gave birth the first time without it). The difference it made to our second births was immense. Having these techniques in our birthing toolbox revolutionised our experience. From very medicalised births (which didn’t go as we’d hoped and left us feeling disappointed), to amazing births – not always as we’d pictured, but positive and beautiful nonetheless.
What is Hypnobirthing?
The three of us know hypnobirthing is much more than a bit of magical breathing (if only that’s all it took!). It’s a complete mindset shift. The power of approaching your birth positively and informed is massive. Life-changing even. Since becoming teachers we’ve been amazed to discover the power our minds have over our births and how much you can do to stack the odds in your favour.
"I relied on the techniques throughout my labour and it absolutely made a massive difference. From someone who thought they had a low pain threshold, who was full of fear, to someone who nailed a back to back home birth. And all because I was able to re-wire my brain, focus on the positives, and understand about oxytocin and all the hormones necessary for a good birth, thank you!"

"Thank you so much for educating us on the wonder of birth and the power of my body. I am now looking forward to the experience rather than dreading it! The course has brought my husband and I closer together and I am so glad that hypnobirthing will allow him to have an active role in the birth."
