I first saw hypnobirthing in action as a student midwife in my final year of training. Up until that point I had only seen medicalised births where women were mainly on a bed and usually on a lot of pain relief.
On one particular shift, I was informed there was a lady in the pool room who was 8cm dilated and was using hypnobirthing techniques. I was assigned care of the woman along with my mentor.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a full antenatal education programme taught in the comfort of your own home. It teaches you how to become an expert in relaxation and the tools you’ll need for not only before but also after birth.
It allows you to not let things worry or stress you out and to take control of your emotions.
