When I told my husband I wanted us to do Hypnobirthing, he assumed it would be some ‘hippy’ rubbish. How wrong could he have been! From our first session, Charlotte was knowledgable and professional, but also approachable, friendly and so very calming.
I was so excited to experience labour and give birth and when it started, I felt calm and in control, and confident that my body knew what to do. We stayed at home for the majority of the labour, using a mixture of breathing techniques, aromatherapy and music, allowing me to experience each surge with calmness and an overwhelming excitement to meet our baby.
We continued labour in a birthing pool on the MLBU, and when my body told me it was time, I told the midwife I was ready to push. The midwife had a brief look and said “you’re about to meet your baby”.
Our birthing experience was incredibly calm, positive and empowering and I honestly can’t thank Charlotte enough for the knowledge and confidence she gave us to bring our daughter into the world.
Thank you thank you!! Xxxx
