Birth Stories

"I found the hypnobirthing course & audios absolutely brilliant. I listened to the affirmations & audios nearly every day in the months coming up to the birth Of baby Annabella. It really made a huge difference. I gave birth safely in FOURS hours! I started getting contractions 8.30 pm & had baby Annabella at 12.30 am the following morning. It was very fast & I didn't use any pain relief. I found the EFT tapping techniques that you showed us brilliant too. Thank you so much for all your help & positivity & encouragement."

"My husband Tim and I attended your hypnobirthing course and gave birth to our little baby girl, Karen, weighing 7lb10oz.
I’ll give you a quick rundown as I’m sure you’d like to know how hypnobirthing really helped make the birth such a positive experience. My waters broke at home naturally around 11am. I phoned the hospital and they recommended coming in and to monitor the colour of the water. We eventually went to hospital at 5pm as the waters were clear and I wanted to stay at home for as long as possible. When we were admitted I was monitored and as contractions weren’t strong enough they told me that I could go home and return in the morning at 8am to be induced if nothing happened in the interim. Delighted we went home and relaxed and followed your advice from the hypnobirthing course about watching cartoon videos, sat on birthing ball, massage etc... Contractions became strong at 2am so we decided to go to the hospital. When we were received in the ward we were greeted by a lovely student nurse who had just done a course in hypnobirthing and proceeded to encourage me and brought birth stool and exercise ball into the room - no need to even ask! By 6am I was 9cm dilated and was brought to the labour ward. Karen was born at 9.13am. We just had a tens machine and hypnobirthing techniques during the labour by choice and I couldn’t have been happier. I did have gas and air after the birth for some minor stitches but that was all. Holles street were so accommodating and really listened to our needs.
I wanted to thank you for enabling this positive experience for us. We have highly recommended you and hypnobirthing course to anyone who will listen! :) Wishing you continued success. Hopefully see you if we become pregnant again. Maura, Tim and Karen

"All done and dusted yesterday Aisling. 4.5 hours for the entire hypnobirthing from the first surge to the 2 big pushes that got him out. 9.4 pounds and we're thrilled. Thanks again for all your help. Your hypnobirthing course is the best! Love from Eimear, Conor, Ella and baby Patrick.

Aisling, Our Baby Daughter’s birth was Wonderful. Really wonderful.

We arrived at Our Lady of Lourdes hospital at 11.15am - and she arrived at 1.11pm and interestingly, she was born in what is known as 'The Caul'. The surges were steady, and didn't really kick in until about 11.30am. Then I had some gas around 12.30 and hey presto, out she popped!  The first words that I uttered upon her arrival (when she immediately rested on my chest) were 'am I dreaming?  Has she really arrived?  That was a pleasure’! It really was amazing - and sometimes I lay in bed at night and think about it and feel very happy indeed.

Hypnobirthing is amazing - and we cannot thank you enough for teaching this very calm birthing method to us so very brilliantly and for guiding me through another wonderful pregnancy and birth.

We hope you are very well and hope to meet you again one day in the not too distant. Rita  & Anthony
