Max’s Birth

Louise and Graham first time parents to Max
He was born using Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing) on 19th May 2015.

So our birth preference was to go into labour naturally and end up at the Lister hospital for the last part of the labour after chilling out at home…..alas this was not the case as I was induced. Without The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme and  Sophie’s fantastic teaching on Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing), I would have had many occasions over the weekend where panic and stress would have ruled. Graham was fantastic and was able to remind me different elements from the course which kept me more relaxed then I would have been otherwise. When I was taken from the ward to the consultant led unit I took it all in my stride because I was so calm and relaxed. The midwives were thrilled we were using Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing),  they supported and encouraged us throughout. The breathing techniques and anchors gave constant support and made it possible to give birth to Max weighing 9lb15, standing holding onto a fabric support when my surges were strongest, without any pain relief!!! The course allowed me to zone out and even fall asleep between surges.

I felt absolutely epic, able to achieve anything and on an absolute natural high!! Max arrived after a 6.5 hr active labour, he fed straight away and has not stopped since.

We listened to The Wise Hippo Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing) mp3’s each night and the affirmations whilst ironing . Your subconscious really does take on board the mp3’s and ‘One Born Every Minute’ becomes a thing of the past. We cannot recommend the course enough and would be more than happy to chat with any couple thinking about enrolling on Sophie’s course because we can’t see why everyone doesn’t use Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing).
