Hypnobirthing is a complete birth education programme, that teaches simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better birth. Whatever kind of birth you’re planning Hypnobirthing can help.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a professional and fun programme, with an ethos of empowerment, confidence and choice. The programme focuses on birth being a natural event, teaching you how to relax, breathe and trust your body to know what to do instinctively. Belief and trust creates calm and confidence, which is exactly what is needed on the day when your baby decides to arrive.
Hypnobirthing is not only about producing babies. It’s about creating strong confident mothers who learn instinctively to trust themselves and by using their inner wisdom, make choices that are right for themselves and their families.
We want to empower all pregnant women, and their partners, to trust themselves and the choices they make, so that they can achieve the best birth possible and know that their baby had ‘the right birth on the day’.
