Hypnobirthing

We share the Wise Hippo Birthing Programme, to bring you relaxation and peace of mind. It includes evidence-based learning about pregnancy, labour & birth and teaches guided and self-hypnosis techniques to reduce anxiety and build confidence.

All women are individual, have different birth choices and experiences, we’re delighted to offer our Hypnobirthing Course that doesn’t only promote one type of birth experience but is adaptable to your needs – offering techniques you can use to support you irrespective of your birth choices.

Focusing on having The Right Birth on the Day provides you with the opportunity to create a positive mindset about birth, whilst building up your ability to make sure that everything that happens on the day (and beforehand) is what you believe is the right course of action for you to take.

Designed to help you prepare mentally and emotionally, giving you the skills and techniques to birth calmly and confidently on the day.

The Wise Hippo is a new approach to birthing. We believe a ‘positive birth’ experience is a state of mind, it’s not defined by what happens during labour and birth but by how a woman feels about her baby’s birth.

Birth is unpredictable and the tools and techniques learnt on our Hypnobirthing Course will support you to be emotionally in control.  You can make sure you ask all the right questions of your medical caregivers, so that you fully understand all the decisions you make, which means you will be able to look back on your baby’s birth and know it was right for you and baby.
