It all starts with your hormones

When you feel stressed anxious or out of control, your body goes into fight or flight mode which slows down the progress of birth making it longer and more painful. 

Hypnobirthing goes beyond conventional NCT antenatal classes by teaching you how to let go of fear, attune to your mind and body, and create a deeper connection with your baby and partner. all of which help produce the right hormones for birth.... Spoiler alert, that is Oxytocin!

Evidence based teaching

We would not be who we are without understanding the science and the WHY behind the techniques. It's not just about Breathing for sure, but did you know how breathing is proven to slow your heart rate, reduce blood pressure and slow down the production of adrenalin. The science behind the techniques is, for me, more important than the technique itself
