Why Proud Birth?
When I was pregnant all the antenatal courses I looked into were much of a muchness, floral uterus's and pastel swirly fonts. I wanted to create a course that was a bit more real, to create a space where people could drop their 'I'm a grown up' bravado, learn about birth in plain English and have fun along the way.
Because I know that although being pregnant can be an exciting time, it can also be pretty overwhelming. And if you're pregnant and looking after small people already that is a totally different ball game completely physically and emotionally. As the ever elusive due date approaches, you might have caught yourself in the mirror, cupping your growing bump, and asking yourself "how the heck am I going to get this baby out?"
I'm here to tell you, you can absolutely do this, and also say that your birth, no matter what journey it takes, can be a positive experience. That's right I said positive, but I'm going to go one step further and say life changing.
But birth can unpredictable, and it's important that you know upfront Hypnobirthing isn't a guarantee to a smooth sailing easy breezy birth. The beauty of it is that it's for every type of birth! It's not about how your baby gets out of your body, it's how you feel along the way. I've heard people say "Hypnobirthing didn't't work for me because I ended up with a c-sectioon" newsflash Hypnobirthing isn't going to work for you, it's a toolkit for you to dip into to help you navigate your birth.
By understanding what happens to your body and your baby during the birth process and the importance of the mind-body connection you will be in such a strong position to remain calm and in control during labour. Add in some tools and techniques to get you into a deeply relaxed state quickly regardless of your environment, as well as having the knowledge of positions to move in to which will help you birth your baby as comfortably as possible, and you're doing the future you such an epic service.
I offer a range of courses and 1:1 coaching designed to make you and your birth partner feel confident and excited about your birth, and be able to advocate for yourself in order to make the right choices for you and your baby if the journey to birth changes.
I want you to be proud of yourself, your birth partner and your birth, no matter what course it takes because you are nothing short of a magical unicorn with the magic and the power you have inside you.
