What our happy clients in Cheam say

Following our hypnobirthing course with Rachel, my husband and I have been left feeling calm, in a positive mindset, informed and excited about the whole birth experience and ready to do this!

Rachel was very thorough, patient, and methodical in her approach, with great techniques to help you visualize what your body is capable of.

Cheam hypnobirthing & birth preparation course: The benefits

More and more people are understanding and turning to hypnobirthing to help them prepare to give birth. Science has shown that through mindfulness, breathing, and relaxation techniques, we can encourage our bodies to relax during the birthing process.

Managing stress around labour can help to relieve some of the anxiety and fear associated with giving birth. In some cases, hypnobirthing has even been shown to make labour shorter with less need for medical intervention and drugs. Hypnobirthing can be used at home, at a birth centre, or in a hospital and can be added to any birth plan. Read Amy’s story.
