It is important to know your teacher...

I am passionate about birth and that you can do IT, whatever your IT is, no matter how your baby gets out. I have seen far too many women and men petrified of the prospect of having a baby. It shouldn't be this way. I know why it happens, you aren't being effectively supported or educated. That can be changed. I am a firm believer that no matter what happens during your birth experience. It is all about your mindset. Knowledge is power and you are the boss. I hate the current state of the maternity system, trust me, I have to bite my tongue ALL the time when I see how women are treated. But you aren't just a family going through the system, you are a family seeking a birth which changes your life.
The mind is powerful. Through providing you with information and tools, you can have a wonderful birth. Like you probably are, I was always unsure about hypnobirthing, how on earth could a bit of breathing change everything? Isn't it for hippies, vegans, people living on boats, birthing in the wild?! I saw amazing birth stories, but never believed that it was down to hypnobirthing, maybe they were just lucky? I was wrong. It really works! It totally isn't breathing. That is only a small part of it. Or for hippies, vegans, or people living on boats. It is all about you knowing your stuff and making informed choices. Feeling confident, calm and in control. I'm gonna get you feeling excited for birth. What? Yes, birth can be incredible. I am so excited and privileged to support anyone who chooses to attend the courses. I have a real interest in providing you with some continuity throughout pregnancy, so once you sign up, I am here for the duration and beyond. Let's make you feel like a total goddess!
Hope to speak to you soon,
