Looking for tools for a safe, comfortable birthing for you & your baby? Learn how to BIRTH WITH CONFIDENCE, release fears, understand your choices, and to feel in control no matter what your maternity journey is.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme
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. Because of this belief we are able to teach skills and knowledge that empower women to trust their instincts and ensure that their baby has the right birth on the day.
Childbirth can be an empowering and positive event in your life – one that you will want to remember. With the help of hypnotherapy for birth, The Wise Hippo Birth Preparation Programme will teach you techniques that will enable you to birth your baby in a more comfortable, calm and relaxing environment, and one where you are in control and you need less intervention from others.
You will learn:
- Fear release methods to allow you to be relaxed and confident for the birth
- Self-hypnosis inducing deep relaxation
- Massage techniques – stimulating endorphins, your body’s natural anaesthetic
- Visualisation exercises to keep you grounded, serene and positive
- Different breathing techniques for labour and and birth
- How your mind and body work together efficiently and comfortably
The Wise Hippo Birth Preparation Programme not only prepares you and your birth partner for childbirth in a comprehensive way but also enables your baby to have a gentle birth which has been proven to result in a calmer baby. The classes will encourage you to develop life skills that can help you prepare for and enjoy both a positive birthing experience and the many rewarding years of parenthood that lie beyond.
I have been working with parents and children for over 20 years and is a mum to a 5 year old. Having learnt hypnobirthing during pregnancy, she has used the techniques and knows how valuable being relaxed and confident during the birth is.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Preparation Programme can be delivered in person or over Zoom. Due to the recent circumstances theses sessions are available online over Zoom only.
