The hypnobirthing was amazing and I managed the majority of my labour with out any pain relief. I used gas and air for the last hour, however the midwife said I was doing better with the breathing than gas and air! Thank you again very much. I loved using the visualisations we learned in the class.

I cannot recommend Hypnobirthing Classes with Sarah Johnson enough. As someone who had always been very anxious about the thought of childbirth, I decided to try a Essential Hypnobirthing Course as the delivery of my first child approached. The skills and techniques I learned totally transformed my feelings about labour, to the point that I actually began to look forward rather than to dread the process. Not only did this help me to enjoy the rest of my pregnancy, but I am sure it is also the reason I managed to have such a calm and smooth birth. Both my partner and I agree, that the money we spent on the classes was some of the best spent in my whole pregnancy. We shall definitely be using the techniques again, whenever Baby Number Two decides to make an appearance!

We just thought we’d let you know that M. was born this morning…Due for induction on Sunday but thankfully she arrived before! Just wanted to say that what we learnt on the course worked wonders. We arrived at the hospital after about 5 hours of what we thought was early labour at home to find that I was 9.5 cm dilated! …The breathing and relaxation techniques we learned were amazing.
Good luck to you all and remember to just breath and embrace the surges. Looking forward to hearing your stories!

The most effective aspect of HypnoBirthing: the positive phrases that were ingrained in my psyche through listening almost every day to the CD. The phrase that kept going through my mind during the more intense parts of my labour was “my body and my baby know what to do”. I truly believed it even if “I wasn’t sure what was happening and if it was happening how it was supposed to! I truly believe HypnoBirthing was helpful to me because I was able to stay calm and trust in Mother Nature.” S, gave birth to her first baby in birthing pool after 5.5 hours labour.
I feel really really privileged to have had such a wonderful birth and I also feel quite sad that so far, in my antenatal group, no-one has had such a straightforward birth as myself. J. and I would both like to thank you for your time and support and for giving us such happy birth memories.” L, after water birth of her third baby.
Hypnobirthing was the absolute best thing I ever did for myself and our babies when it came to birthing.”

I’d had a very real fear of birth since my teens and was genuinely terrified. Your Hypnobirthing classes taught me a technique which enabled me to conquer my fears. So much so I even choose to opt for a natural birth in the birth centre! …my waters broke 2 weeks early so I had to be induced but the midwives could not believe how calm I was and how long I lasted without any pain relief. It also gave me the confidence to be in control of my surroundings. My birth experience was a fantastic one (even though it hadn’t quite gone to plan!) and I’m already looking forward to baby number two in the not too distant future”

Thanks to you I went through with great birthing experiences. And the fact that second time around was so stress free too. I can’t believe how well D. [husband] managed both births. He still goes on and on about both experiences to all his friends, as if like he was actually the one having the baby! I don’t think I would have had an easy birth without hypnobirthing. Even the Drs and Nurses here in China after seeing XXXXX births still are amazed at how easy I had T… they keep telling me to have more.”
