Antenatal support

Antenatal support

It’s been a busy few months teaching, and my Hypnobirthing courses have been very popular.

It’s always great to hear from clients once the course ends how the techniques and other information is helping them prepare for their babies arrival. I thought I’d share some feedback from some recent clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s so brilliant to get this feedback and really cements my passion and belief that birth should not to be a trauma and something we should not have to endure, with the right support, tools and people around us it should be a positive experience no matter what path it takes.

I run regular courses from both my locations in South Devon and Bath. i you’d like to chat through any details of it please do get in touch. I also offer 1-2-1 sessions which are tailored individually taking into to account any situations/past experiences you maybe needing to work through.
