I cannot recommend Hypnobambinos highly enough! The tools and techniques helped me through my labour immensely and our teacher is just lovely. She has not just been a hypnobirthing teacher, but a friend and a champion as well. When I was feeling pressurised by a doctor to birth in a hospital, rather than the birthing centre as I had hoped, she got in touch with private midwives that she knew and spoke to AIMS to find out what my rights were. She phoned me up and explained everything to me. It really calmed me down at a time when I was feeling really upset and a bit panicky.
I had heard about hypnobirthing through a friend who had a baby in April 2014. I loved the concept and decided that I would like to do the course as well, as I was about 3 months pregnant by this time. My husband was pretty sceptical and thought it was just another expensive thing we did not need! However, after 1 session he told me he was really pleased we’d spent the money and was really looking forward to the rest of the course. He said he felt it gave him a real role to play in the labour and that he felt much more informed and prepared as a result. Thanks to hypnobambinos, my husband was the most amazing support through my labour and my daughter was born into a beautiful and calm environment. I don’t think my husband would have been able to be as much of a support to me had he not learned what he did through this course.
For me, hypnobirthing alone is not what we loved about this course though. Danielle’s approach and style of teaching put us very much at ease from the start and she always made it very clear that she was there for us throughout. She’s still in touch now and my baby girl is 2 months old. She has been an incredible support and made our hypnobirthing experience a really positive one.
