I put off having children until the age of 36 because I was petrified of dying in childbirth. I’m now mum to two amazing boys.
You may well have an idea of what birth is, either from a past experience or from those awful videos they showed you at school – you know, with a close up of a vagina, a bed bound mum who is screaming at the top of her lungs. They were shown to us to scare us into not having sex early. They worked at scarring us as well as scaring us though! And thank goodness we have The Wise Hippo to change all that.
As a Wise Hippo Birthing Programme Teacher I teach hypnobirthing to expectant parents to help them feel empowered and excited about the actual labour process using the Wise Hippo birthing techniques.
I provide you with evidence based information about antenatal care and childbirth, and provide you with hypnosis tools and practical relaxation techniques to help you stay calm and relaxed to achieve the right birth on the day…whatever that looks like!
I REALLY BELIEVE that every woman can feel like a warrior when she gives birth, like I did with my first. We are in the most primal state we’ve ever been in during labour, and tapping into all that subconscious ancestral knowledge about how to trust our bodies and how to give birth. This is what I bring back into our consciousness when I teach the Wise Hippo Birthing Method.
I love to help expectant couples move from a state of fear around birth to feeling excitement and trusting their bodies and their babies. The Wise Hippo method focuses on everything that can go right. It helps you to realise that no matter what path your baby’s birth takes, you can feel empowered and have a positive birth experience which you can even ENJOY.
