Hypnobirthing doesn’t mean you’ll be in a trance or asleep. You’ll always be aware of what is happening to you, and around you.

Hypnobirthing doesn’t require any particular belief system, or prior experience. Some of our mums (and especially their partners!) have been very sceptical at first – until they experience it for themselves. Its practical approach means there is something for everyone.

“When my wife first told me about hypnobirthing I was a little bit sceptical, but after attending the taster session I was sold on it. For as far back as I can remember, I have been unable to listen to people explain how the body works or medical procedures without feeling hot and dizzy. As such my wife was worried about me being able to attend the birth. Liz (a formed Enhance Your Birth Instructor) explained how birth works in a very simple and gentle way. She explained why so many women have difficult births and how they work against the body rather than with it. This combined with the relaxation techniques equips both the mother and father with a tool kit to help them through the birth. Liz was more than just a hypno birthing teacher – If you had to give her a job title I would describe her as a pregnancy and birthing consultant.” Amit, Moseley
