It is so lovely to hear feedback from my couples to find out how useful they found the Hypnobirthing tools and techniques! Below I will share birth stories and testimonials from real Hypnobirthing mums. If you have recently completed classes with me I would love to find out how everything went!

I would highly recommend Clare to anyone who would like to attend a hypnobirthing course, whether it be a 1:1 or group session. I chose to have a 1:1 10 hour hypnobirthing course in the comfort of my own home due to being weeks away from my due date. Clare was so accommodating & worked around my schedule when setting dates for the hypnobirthing course to start. She is very friendly, warm & makes you feel relaxed as soon as you meet her. She delivered the course in a very informal way, allowing us to enjoy the course at our own pace, taking breaks when we felt we needed one. We discussed my previous birth, learnt about all the positive information that hypnobirthing delivers & we absolutely loved the relaxation sections of the course. It was amazing how when the course first started we associated birth in a negative light & by the end of the day turned them into positives. I’m looking forward to putting it all into practice when the time comes to give birth to my baby girl & I know my birth partners are fully equipped with all the information & techniques to keep me in a relaxed bubble whilst I’m in labour ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I wish I had found hypnobirthing when I had my son!

Hi Clare, we just wanted to share our positive birthing experience with you and thank you for all your support. Our little girl arrived safely and swiftly on Friday evening. I had been anxious about labour after a difficult first birth but this time round I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience. The hypnobirthing techniques you taught us (especially visualisation and focus on the breath) were helpful in keeping us calm and in a positive frame of mind in early and active labour stages. I can’t thank the midwives who supported us through the process enough either too. Thank you for reframing our thoughts on giving birth. It can be a positive experience. We feel so blessed right now.

I feel much calmer and confident and that I have lots of tools that may help me during labour. My expectations were exceeded. I loved the personal touch with this course. We both felt comfortable talking about our worries/ concerns with no judgement.

I hoped to improve my understanding of labour and find coping mechanisms to aid in labour/ birth process. the course gave me skills and confidence as we  as a global feeling of relaxation and empowerment. I enjoyed practicing relaxation and breathing techniques. I enjoyed watching different birthing videos and engaging in exercises as a group kept things interesting.

 

I would really encourage others to do this and advise its not just about pain relief (which seemed to be the biggest misconception I faced.)

 

I thought Clare was excellent- super informative, factual, encouraged a relaxed atmosphere. I thought the venue was great. Thank you Clare!

Thank you for providing such a great course. It has been a great help to me and my partner. I didn't know what to expect at the beginning but was very informative and learned a lot of new techniques and things I never would have even thought of. All that I learned in this course is useful and my partner and I will implement almost all that we learned. The best part of the course was all of it as it opened my eyes to a lot of new things.

"I cannot recommend this course highly enough and would now deem it essential for any mum to be. I was incredibly anxious about childbirth, despite it being my second time. Somehow through this course Clare has helped me to actually feel calm, confident and even looking forward to it!


I was worried it would be a bit airy fairy but it was in no way a hippy course! It was informative, practical and every part made complete sense. And it's not about there being only one 'natural' and 'right' way of giving birth; it's about making you feel confident about what lies ahead and giving you the tools to give you the best experience possible no matter what happens on the day. 


Clare is also a fantastic instructor - knowledgeable, reassuring and very personable. The best thing we've done to prepare for our baby!"

We really enjoyed the 1:1 hypnobirthing workshop which took place in the comfort of our own home. Clare was friendly and down to earth and made us feel at ease. The workshop was delivered in a relaxed and informal manner, with practical demonstrations as well as some theory. The content of the workshop was informative without overloading us. It was tailored to our needs and we came away with lots of practical strategies that we can use during the birthing process as we had requested. These included relaxation techniques using the breath and visualisation. There was also a focus on how birthing partners can facilitate the process (e.g. ensuring the environment is calm and how to ask the right questions to medical professionals). The workshop was followed up with mp3 attachments, links to useful websites and book references.

All in all a worthwhile experience and one we would recommend to others. We came away feeling positive and hopeful that our second experience of giving birth will be far calmer than the first! Thank you Clare.

Clare came to do a 3 hour 1-1 session with me.
I found it extremely informative and positive. She spoke about things I hadn’t yet thought of and how I have options. Also, several practices of relaxation breathing techniques and positive imagery I can use during labour. The stages of labour were covered too and how to cope with them.

All of this has meant I feel more prepared to face my second delivery with our new little baby boy.
I don’t feel so daunted now but more ready to do it.

I would recommend this to any mum to be whether first time or otherwise.

I cannot thank Clare enough for all her help and the information provided to both my partner via the course which we chose to have in the comfort of our own home. Clare was so friendly, personable and such a good teacher which in turn made both my husband and I feel such ease. Not only does this course teach you lessons and skills for Birth, but also for life plus making my husband feel really part of the process and what is to come! I cannot advocate enough just how good this course and Clare is; I recommend it to anyone especially those who suffer with anxiety and over thinking. After three hours, I already feel so much calmer and not intimidated in advance of my first birth experience which is to come in July/August. Thanks again Clare from us both x

I would just like to say thank you for passing on your knowledge to others. It's definitely changed my views on birth and that it isn't something negative anymore.

Hi Clare, just wanted to thank you for your course and emails. I had my little one this morning and had a very positive birth, not the way I wanted as the baby had a poo inside so was consultant led and no birthing pool but stayed with my relaxing scents, relaxations, gas and air to help with the intense surges I couldn't relax in and was in active labour for 3 hours and this morning at 00.58 my daughter was born. I feel very positive and proud of my experience and it was your course that helped me prepare for a positive outcome. thank you very much

 Dear Clare,

โ€‹

What more can I say, but thank you.


Baby was born at 20.47 after a very quick INDUCED labour, weighing 8lbs exactly.


I would like to thank you for all that you taught me throughout the hypnobirthing course and the relaxation course, I truly believe that you helped me achieve the positive birth experience that I wanted.

Throughout my pregnancy there were some unexpected turns, such as being diagnosed with gestational diabetes and being told another induction was necessary.

You went above and beyond to provide me with support and information which gave me the confidence to have a birth that was positive.

I had the confidence to ask questions surrounding my rights to birth where I wanted, and surprisingly to me was only met with support from both midwives and consultants.

A positive Induction experience!

As you know I was not at all keen for an induction but realised it was the safest option due to the gestational diabetes. 

I arrived at the hospital at 3pm anxious at what was ahead of me. I was taken to one of the assessment rooms by the coordinating Sister on that day who took the time to talk with me regarding what was going to happen.

I then met my midwife who sat with myself, my husband and my sister to discuss all of the options and events that may arise. She was very kind and reassuring and gave us plenty of time to ask questions and discuss our concerns.

At 16.40 I was given the gel and had to stay on the CTG for half an hour.

After this I was able to walk around and relax. The surges started soon after this but I was afraid to believe that I was in 'true labour'

So I walked around and bounced on my ball and practiced my breathing.

At around 19.30 there was a change of shift and I met my lovely midwife who helped me bring my baby girl into the world.

I asked if I could use the pool and she advised that she would like to examine me to see if I was dilating at all first. I wasn't ready to be examined so decided to try the tens machine and continue with my breathing and bouncing on my ball!

At around 20.05 I felt the surges were getting stronger so decided to get my phone out to listen to some of the mp3's to concentrate. I got as far as plugging in my headphones, and my waters broke.

I agreed for the midwife to examine me at this point, she told me I was 6cm, but on the next contractions I had the urge to push! Very soon after our baby girl was born!

We stayed that evening in hospital and was home the next day. 

I went in with a positive mindset and with only a tense machine and some gas and air I achieved what I thought was impossible after my first baby.

Thank you so much for everything and for helping me safely bring my baby into the world!

Lots of love

Xxx
