Sacha’s attitude was extremely positive and approachable and the course was extremely informative. I was surprised to learn about things on a physiological level that my midwife & antenatal classes had never even mentioned to me! Had my husband and I not done the course I am sure we would have been led by the medical professionals down unnecessary paths (such as induction), instead of allowing our daughter to be born naturally when she was ready.

The word HypnoBirthing probably makes it sound like something it’s not… it’s basically just reprogramming your brain not to be frightened of the whole process and to enjoy it, to know that you can do it…Within a few days after having Sid I really felt like I wanted to do it again because I enjoyed it so much! I wouldn’t say it was easy, but it was quite close to it, it really was enjoyable.”

It was undoubtedly the most calm, exhilarating, beautiful birth (not to mention one of the shortest) I’ve attended so far as a birth doula. I plan to suggest it to all my upcoming clients.
I would have to say that HypnoBirthing is the most amazing phenomenon to observe in action. Women seem to sail through the birthing of their babies, working as a team with their birth partner who is the essential anchor for her.
There is nothing for the midwife to do except sit quietly and watch and wait. The entire experience seems to bring the couple closer together as they share in the achievement and benefit from the enhanced trust in one another that they have developed.
And finally, I think the real success story for HypnoBirthing is its benefit to men. Men have the hardest job really, being supportive to their partners but not really having a defined role. Men’s role as HypnoBirthing partners is clearly key to the whole success story and being actively involved in the birth of their children allows men to bond easily and immediately with them.

The magic of HypnoBirthing is that you almost don’t realise the profound effect it is having. It creeps up gradually, in my case from a fear of childbirth to a relaxed, calm, even excited attitude towards labour and birth. Having already read the book and watched many YouTube hypnobirths, we weren’t entirely sure that the classes would be money well spent but we are so glad that we decided to do them.
