Absolutely amazing!!! This was my second pregnancy and I just wish I had taken the class for my first. Siobhan is the best teacher, so knowledgeable and positive and all of this rubs off onto you after the class. I felt so prepared and confident with the knowledge and tools that Siobhan had given us. I can't thank you enough x x x
Thanks to your guidance Tara breathed Rocco out beautifully in an hour. No raised voices at all. It was as perfect a birth as we could have had. We will never forget what a wonderful birth experience it was. Both had you in our thoughts a lot yesterday.
My wife was terrified at what was coming with the birth. After our time with Siobhan my wife not only stopped going to bed in tears, but was looking forward to it. Seriously. Don't go into it without taking this course with Siobhan. The experience was incredible, empowering and brought us closer together.
Having had a traumatic first birth I knew that hypnobirthing was worth a try and I cannot recommend it highly enough. My husband and I recently completed a private session with Siobhan and after a few short hours I went from quite terrified about the thought of birthing my second to actually looking forward to the challenge ahead. Don’t be put off by the term hypnobirthing as this is a little misleading and having completed the course I simply cannot believe that this isn’t compulsory education to all parents to be. I now have the tools and confidence to have a calm and controlled labour regardless of the eventualities. Bring it on!
As a self-confessed wuss with a panicker for a husband there is no way that we could have done it without hypnobirthing classes, I will recommend them to everyone that has ears. If anyone is London based and pregnant, check out The Positive Birth Company.
My husband Ad and I had a wonderful, amazing and positive birth experience following this course. Our little girl was born naturally with just gas and air in the water 3 weeks ago - we came into hospital at 10pm and I was thrilled to be 7cm dilated already. I 100% put this down to the course - it gave both Ad and I the tools to handle and cope with the birth and also stay calm. I honestly can’t thank Siobhan enough and I will absolutely tell anyone expecting to try hypnobirthing. I feel really blessed to have had the experience we had and I think its made everything else easier for me (I haven’t had the blues and I haven’t had any issues with feeding either). I really do feel very grateful to Siobhan and this course! As does Ad, he was brilliant and was my rock. It felt like we were a team! Highly recommend!!!!
Siobhan, a huge thank you!! If we hadn't of come across your course, I doubt my home birth for our first baby would have been as smooth and perfect as it was! You don't need to be alternative to believe in the power of hypnobirthing as the name may suggest; and if you have any pre conceived ideas (and watch too much of one born every minute 😬) I highly recommend that you do this course to put any negativity aside as birthing is truely a magical experience!
I'm ready to do it again!! Well... I'll wait for my 10 week to get a bit older before we consider expanding!! 😀 Being a mum is more exhausting xx
We feel so much more prepared (and excited) for the birth of our baby following this course. I can't recommend hypnobirthing classes enough and especially Siobhan, she has made us feel empowered to have a positive birth experience and filled us with so much enlightening knowledge. We were sad the course had finished and can't wait to share our birth story!
This is a must for all first time parents!
Please do not be put off by the term "Hypnobirthing" as it is misleading. This course gives you factual information about the labour process as well as techniques to approach the experience in a calm and positive way. It is about reframing pre-existing ideas, incorrect information and stereotypes about labour and dispelling the fear surrounding it. It is a great way for partners to learn more about the choices mum-to-be is considering and realise that they play a really important role throughout.
We learnt so much from this course and walked away from it feeling confident and positive!
Haven't even laboured and used the techniques yet but honestly Siobhan has been like a fairy God mother tonight to me. After receiving a phone call where I felt bullied into birthing in a way and place I don't want to, Siobhan has enlightened me into how much more choice and say I have in my birth care than consultants let on and that I have a right to stand my ground and get the birth I want. After spending a good few hours crying this afternoon I'm heading to bed ready to kick butt on Monday and do things my way and take control of the birth of my baby! I'm sure the techniques will help in Labour but just for the empowerment Siobhan has given me and the legal knowledge about my rights and what hospitals must adhere to at this moment in time has been priceless to learn. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much Siobhan! Our birth didn't go exactly to plan but the techniques you taught us kept us calm and positive throughout. And there is always next to time to get that water birth.
To anyone thinking of doing the course it's well worth it, we learnt much more about birth on this than we did on NCT.
I can't begin to say how wonderful Siobhan is! The course exceeded my expectations in every way and but I would recommend Siobhan to any expectant parents. Not only did we learn so much but we really enjoyed it too and now feel much more informed, confident, relaxed and excited about meeting our baby.
Hypnobirthing was completely invaluable to me and my husband for the birth of our first child. Siobhan is such a great teacher and we came away from the course with all our questions answered and looking forward to our birth rather than slightly fearful of it. My birth did not quite go as we would have liked as we ended up having an emergency c section but i don't know how i would have got through the labour prior to this without my breathing techniques! In my opinion everyone should do this course as i can't think of a better and more positive way to prepare for your birth. I will and am recommending Siobhan to every pregnant woman I know!
Siobhan and her course are both fantastic! Cannot recommend it highly enough. Even my husband enjoyed it and he was pretty sceptical before we went. We went on to have a MUCH better delivery of our second child after a difficult time with our first. Thank you Siobhan x
