My husband and I have just finished a 1:1 hypnobirthing course with Helen and were very impressed. Excellent value for money, some great tools for childbirth and beyond, and Helen was a wonderful teacher. We were both surprised how quickly we took to the hypnobirthing scripts and can see how it will help us in labour. You get some great MP3s to practice with and a book that gives you all of the information you need for the course. Helen does the session in your home so you don't get as embarrassed practising and can feel properly relaxed. We will update you on how labour goes but for now we're very happy with the service Helen provided and would recommend to anyone thinking about hypnobirthing that they try this out. It isn't woo, it's just a great way to take back some self-control and help yourself to manage pain by way of relaxation techniques that work.
My partner and I signed up for 8 hours of 1-1 hypnobirthing. We loved the sessions in our home and even the dog would be chilled by the end of the sessions!
I was excited about the birth and felt like it was a challenge I was ready for. When the time finally arrived I played my music, got into the birth pool with pretend candles lit and after just 6 hours of labour and just 3 contractions/pushes my baby was born 8lb6 happy and healthy. The midwives commented on how quickly the labour progressed being my first time and many said I should have the next at home!
It was such a beautiful and happy birth with no screaming, fear or worrying. I look back with so much love and can’t wait to do it again in the future.
Helen was brilliant, like a non judgmental friend, talking through everything in a matter of fact yet humorous way. I would recommend to anyone!
