First-time mum to be


Congratulations mum to be! By exploring hypnobirthing you are already making the best possible choices for you and your baby. You’ve probably been spending an awful lot of time on the internet already lately, researching everything to do with  your pregnancy,  the changes that are happening to your body, let alone choosing a buggy or shopping for baby equipment. Whilst it is very exciting, It can sometimes seem a little overwhelming.  Well rest assured that a few more moments spent planning  your antenatal education is well worth the time in terms of peace of mind. You want to ensure you have the best possible mental and physical preparation for what lies ahead. Hypnobirthing cannot promise the perfect birth, but most hypnobirthing mums say that even if their birth did not turn out quite how they envisaged it, hypnobirthing enabled them to feel calmer and more able to deal with the events, whatever path they may take. See our FAQs for some of the most common questions we get asked.
