What our happy clients in Sutton 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.

We loved the whole experience and would definitely recommend this course to anyone currently pregnant and thinking about hynobirthing. Thanks again Rachel and keep doing what you’re doing!
