The Curious impact of Hypnobirthing Preparation on a VBAC.

I’ve just received this birth story two and half years after it happened. At the time of birth Natalie didn’t really know the impact her hypnobirthing had on her birth, however through the lens of time – she realized the impact was huge. I hear this frequently, “Cindy I’m not really sure It was a hypnobirth. Birth just happened. “. What does a true hypnobirth...

The birth you have while making other plans – Baby Oliver’s Choice Birth.

The birth you have while making other plans – Baby Oliver’s Choice Birth.

Baby choice birth delights me – the planned hospital birth that ends up a homebirth, the homebirth that turns into a free birth because the midwife got caught in traffic, the birth in the car, or side of the road. It reminds us retrospectively  that birth is bigger than us- and babies have surprising influence , even in-utero babies. More often than not these births...

Baby Hudson – Positive, physiological birth in a hospital.

A well supported, straightforward and empowered birth… Julie’s Story.

In my Hypnobirthing classes,  more often than not couples do the course together but sometimes a woman will come alone. This does not mean she is not supported – it just means life has complexity. We live in busy, crazy times and sometimes one has to commit to Hypnobirthing classes, rather than two. There are all sorts of reasons why partners cannot attend: some work , others...

My Spontaneous Home birth ~ By Aylin

Spontaneous homebirth describes this birth perfectly. Homebirth was not the intention for the birth of Aylin and Dan’s baby Chloe, but rather, supported by an independent midwife in a public hospital. Yes, you can choose this option, as I found out shortly after the birth of my second son. What is so striking about this story is Aylin’s conviction about her body and her ability to birth and calmly...

Hux’s Birth – A game changing moment for Marta and Nic…

It is a  video which shows amazing caregiver support and is filled with emotion, joy and amazing graphic of first birth. Marta and Nic, parents to be, watched this intently as first time birthing Mum Nicola, brings her daughter up through the water and...
