Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a complete birth education programme, that teaches simple but effective self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques to achieve a calm and relaxed labour and birth.

The Wise Hippo programme I teach “may use hypnosis as part of its suite of tools and techniques it doesn’t mean that it has the same view on birth as traditional hypnobirthing. Because what we want for you is to have #therightbirthontheday.
Focussing on having The Right Birth on the Day provides you with the opportunity to create a positive mind set about birth, whilst building up your ability to make sure that everything that happens on the day (and beforehand if necessary) is what you believe is the right course of action for you to take.”


Hypnobirthing doesn’t mean you’ll be in a trance or a sleep. Rather, you’ll be able to chat, feeling calm and relaxed, but fully in control. You’ll always be aware of what is happening to you, and around you. Just imagine welcoming each surge! Feeling calm and relaxed, even smiling as your baby comes closer to you! Hypnobirthing allows you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear and tension that prevents the birthing muscles of your body from functioning as Nature intended them to. Hypnobirthing doesn’t require any particular belief system, or prior experience.
