Hello, I’m Suzy Ashworth, mum to Caeser, Coco and growing bump and stepmum to Thomas and founder of The Calm Birth School. I’m guessing if you’ve landed here you’re pregnant (or thinking about it) so congratulations!
My hypnobirthing journey started when I got pregnant with Caesar five years ago. Up until then I’d been all about the work, I had a job in media, that was very target driven. I loved but it did mean….
I was a ‘little’ bit of a control freak.
Although, I knew NOTHING about birth, I quickly came to the decision that I wanted a home birth. Mainly because from the research I had done at that point, I realised that if I wanted an intervention free birth, I would be giving myself the best chance of experiencing that by having my baby at home. (My husband thought I was mad.) Thanks to my background in hypnotherapy, I knew that hypnobirthing would be an amazing tool to help me stay calm and positive, which in turn would be a great foundation for helping me stay at home. My first labour was not short, 33 hours long in fact. At some points the labour was really challenging, but so much of it was beyond what I could have imagined – truly magical, because of what I had learned through hypnobirthing.
I set up The Calm Birth School, after the sweet birth of my daughter Coco two years later. My husband gave me the nudge by saying, “there’s something in this,”. Since launching I have helped thousands of women from right across the world create calm and positive birth experiences.
My down to earth and practical tendencies, mean I won’t do ‘woo-woo’ with you.
I like to keep it plain, simple and easy for both you and your partner to see how straightforward it can be for you to create your own calm and positive birth experience. But don’t take my word for it, check out some of the gorgeous birth stories I receive every week.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch because I would love to be able to support you during this amazing time.
