A few words from Nooshin who gave birth to Penelope
on Saturday 28th March 2015 – A Beautiful Birth

 image1“In the lead up to my birth I had a variety of mixed emotion, sheer excitement but also a real feeling of anxiety which ruled my emotions. I had been exposed to a variety of negative birth stories and these had essentially become my birth story and how I assumed I would also birth. Over this period, a few girls from my NCT group had completed a Hypnosis for Childbirth (Hypnobirthing) course and Sophie was recommended to me.

After a lovely telephone conversation, Sophie came to my house with her magic hands and wonderful positive outlook on labour. She literally helped me retrain my negative thought patterns turning my birth story into a positive experience and in the end something I looked forward to. After some reflexology with Sophie my waters broke the day before I was booked for induction and twelve hours later Penelope was born. Using the hypnobirthing techniques that Sophie had taught me, my labour was a controlled and focused experience – even the doctors remarked on how calm and controlled I was at the end! I can’t explain the pure elation I felt after my beautiful birth and being handed my baby girl. I felt like super women and have Sophie from The Wise Hippo in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire to thank for helping me create a truly wonderful and beautiful birth experience.”
