How hypnobirthing has helped others

We absolutely recommend this course not only to first time parents but to anyone who wants to educate themselves on choices during labour & methods to help towards a positive birth of your baby.

Elle, Mum to Be, Sherburn in Elmet, Selby

I have come away with a lot more knowledge of what I can bring, rather than pottering around like a lost schoolboy. We both feel more confident in what is to come.

Warren, 2nd Time Dad to Be, Birstall, Leeds

I have gone from being petrified of labour to looking forward to bringing my baby into the world in my own home, with the people that I love.

Stacey, 2nd Time Mum to Be, Morely, Leeds

My partner also found it really useful to not only understand the process of labour but also what his role in birth is which is something he struggled with our first.

Amy, 2nd Time Mum to Be, Huddersfield

Laura was very knowledgeable and positive throughout our sessions and provided myself and my partner with lots of tools and strategies to help with relaxation techniques.

Lisa, Mum to Be, Farsely, Leeds

Hypnobirthing gave me all the tools, skills and knowledge to stay calm during labour, but the most important thing it gave me was the confidence to make my own decisions and stay in control over my birth experience.

Nina - Mother, Leeds

I was initially skeptical that hypnobirthing was "airy fairy" but actually I really enjoyed it.
