Hypnobirthing was recommended to me when I fell pregnant with my first baby in 2019. I was fearful of childbirth as I knew nothing about it, and as my pregnancy progressed, the coronavirus pandemic started. I enrolled on a course at around 20 weeks, and thanks to the power of hypnobirthing I can honestly say that even during a really worrying time I loved giving birth to my son. Many people I speak to think I’m crazy when I say that “I loved giving birth” but I don’t recall anything negative, just a calm, positive, life-changing experience. This inspired me to empower women and their birth partners to create positive birth experiences for themselves and support women in pregnancy, birth and beyond.
