My name is Helen and I am the mother to two amazing children; Jacob aged 2 and a half and Eve aged 1. I discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with Eve and the experience changed my life! All of the anxiety, fear and pain I had experienced whilst in labour with Jacob was completely reversed during my labour with Eve; which was calm, controlled with no need for pain-relief, thanks to hypnobirthing. As a result she was born a calm, alert baby who slept and fed brilliantly.
I also have a first class honours degree in pharmacy and a postgraduate certificate in clinical education, and have been practising as a qualified pharmacist since 2003. Being a mum, with firsthand experience of hypnobirhting, as well as working in the medical profession gives me a unique perspective which mothers find very reassuring.
Having realised it is possible to achieve the birth of your dreams I am committed to helping other women have the wonderful experience they deserve too! Each baby is special so whether it’s your first, second or fifth baby it’s a magical moment when your little one arrives.
Hypnobirthing is a highly established antenatal programme that is both logical and extremely effective and allows you to feel the joy and magic of birth.
Your pregnancy and birth is an exciting time for you and your baby, which should be met with confidence and positivity. Hypnobirthing classes will teach you how to achieve deep relaxation by encouraging your mind and body to work in harmony. Through the use of breathing techniques, massage and exercises to release fear and tension, hypnobirthing can enable you to have the calm, natural and empowering birth you desire.
It is a 10 hour course, taught in 5 sessions or 2 days. Couples usually come to the classes together, and it works very well too if a mother comes on her own. On reserving a place on a class you will be sent the Hypnobirthing Relaxation CD, Colour and Calmness. At the class you will also be given The Hypnobirthing Book and a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home. After the class I am there for you to answer questions by phone or email with a 2 hour refresher session a couple of weeks before you give birth.
Thank you Helen so much! I was feeling quite nervous, almost scared, about giving birth but after doing your hypnobirthing course I feel really excited and would even go as far as to say looking forward to giving birth! You were so patient and easy to talk to and were great at answering all of our questions. The relaxation techniques are brilliant and I am sleeping so much better at night as well. Thanks again, and we'll keep you posted on when our little man arrives.
