Returns childbirth to the beautiful, peaceful experience that nature
I decided to try Hypnobirthing as I was terrified of
childbirth. I was even in tears just thinking about it. I had heard all
the stories of my friends experiences and absolutely dreaded it. One
friend, however, recommended Hypnobirthing and I thought I have nothing to
lose from trying this.
I cant thank her or Pauline enough as I believe if I hadnt taken this
course the outcomes could have been very different. I had the most
wonderful experience and would recommend it to anyone who feels uncertain
about childbirth. It gave me the confidence that I could get through it
and the techniques to keep in control.
I wished for a 7 hour labour, a water birth and no drugs just counting
the time in hospital I got what I wished for and would do it all over
