What is a Positive Birth?
A positive birth does not have to be ‘natural’ or drug-free.
And why does everyone want a positive birth?
You may not realise it yet, but birth is a big deal. And aside from the fact that you will remember your baby’s birth for ever more – studies have shown that Hypnobirthing can have profound and positive effects on both you and your baby. With the benefit of lower c-section rates & need pain relief as well as increased feelings of confidence, control and comfort. Plus higher Apgar scores amongst babies. So the value of a good birth is immeasurable.
Steph is absolutely amazing. I had a difficult & stressful first birth so needed lots of support going into my secod. Steph gave me the power to believe in myself, my mind and my body and gave me the gift of a perfect birth for my 2nd. I would never have believed I would feel so positive and so confident about birth.
I would witout doubt go further than to recommend, I would urge you to hire Steph, it was the best thing we ever did. Thank you Steph, will foever be so thankful.
I would and have been recommending the course to mums to be & partners. I believe what we learnt will not just be used in birthing but everyday life too.
I loved the whole experience and can’t thank you enough for helping us prepare. Within half an hour I said I wanted to do it again!
Later the midwives were excited to tell me how steady my blood pressure had been and how little blood I had lost.
Steph’s Hypnobirthing classes helped us stay calmer through pregnancy & birth and to feel more confident & informed. It was wonderful to hear such a positive & empowering perspective on birth. My husband knew exactly what to do to support me as my birth partner.
In early labour my contractions were only about 1 minute apart from the begining but the hypnobirthing breathing & visualisations allowed me to keep my energy up and my focus positive.

"I don't like hospitals" this mama said as I sat in her gorgeous Thame home. "We'll cover homebirth in class four" I replied with a smile. This was her first hypnobirthing class and we had a lot ground to cover. But it quickly became clear that this was a less than...
My Hypnobirthing journey really started I would say as soon as I found out I was pregnant with Eliot. I had already decided that I wanted and needed my birth experience to be different from the fairly awful time I had had with my first son. I joined an aqua-natal...
