I was eager for a new experience. Sophie came out, so peacefully, so easily, after 10 minutes in the delivery room! Everything was different this time. No drugs, no trauma, skin to skin, a calm and hungry baby! She started breastfeeding straight away and slept so well I could not believe my luck.
"HypnoBirthing gave me a most priceless gift - a childbirth experience that was free of fear."
"Nothing can describe the beauty of our birthing experience with HypnoBirthing. I never dreamed after having two children with another method that I could have so easy a labour."
"The nurses said they had never seen a woman so calm, yet so strong. They couldn't put the HypnoBirthing book down."
“This is the way all babies should come into the world. It’s beautiful. Keep up the good work.”
“I’m a labour and delivery nurse. I work in the field of obstetrics every day. I can hardly believe my eyes as I watch HypnoBirthing mothers in labour. It’s amazing!”
“Several of my patients have used HypnoBirthing. The result: little or no medication and yet, a calm and more comfortable mother.”
“I’ve been delivering babies for twenty years, and I’ve never seen anything like this method. It’s incredible.”
Thank you for all your help in relaxing and getting through labour in a calm way.. I feel it has made a difference to archie's happiness in these first few weeks.

Just wanted to thank you for teaching us. I had great experience and I think hypno birthing worked for me very well. I did not have any drugs, not even gas and air, I was calm and confident during labour. My baby was quite big 8.10 and she put her arm on the head , that's why she was a bit stuck and I had to breathe her out for around 3 hours, but in the end I did not even had stitches !!! Midwifes were surprised that I was so calm and were asking who taught me hypnobirhing :) I can't believe that it's so powerful Hop you are well and thank you one more time.

Baby Imogen Joy Collins was born on 02/03/10 5:42pm and weighed 5lb 14oz.
My waters broke on Monday night (@ 38 weeks) and soaked the bed!
It turned out that after a healthy pregnancy up to 35 weeks and projected weight of up to 8lbs, I had some sort of placental abruption, so when the membrane ruptured early, they said induction would be the best way to have a normal delivery. But after 8 hours labouring, and contractions a minute apart, I was only 1cm dilated and her wee heartbeat stopped accelerating after each contraction, so I was suddenly rushed into theatre for a c-section.
So it wasn't how I imagined it, but I had been warned that every delivery is different and they were so professional. So good news - it's all turned out well and as you'll see from the pictures - she's just delicious, perfect and we love her to pieces. A natural HypnoBirthing birth was and is still my aim, so if we get lucky enough to have another pregnancy, I will do all the preparation again. It was a great way for me to let go of my fears and enjoy the pregnancy and helped me cope with labour with almost no discomfort. Of course I recommend it and you for the ideal way to bring a child into the world.”
Many thanks for all your help!!
