“I would recommend hypnobirthing to everyone”

Thanks to the lovely Laura for sharing her birth story with us. Laura did a TCBS course with one of our instructors. Yvonne Hopkinson from Relaxed Birthing.  We cannot predict how birth will go and there is definitely no “succeed or fail” when it comes to giving birth but the techniques you learn on a…

I LOVE telling my birth story!

I felt calm, in control and I had this lovely idea of how it would go

Claire and Ed did a hypnobirthing course with TCBS Instructor Anna Owen from Rock Your Birth (based in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, UK) via Skype.

“I look back and could kiss every midwife I came into contact with now.”

  Our Christmas will be even more chaotic in the years to come as Thomas ‘Tommy’ Arthur Wilson joined our family at 11.24pm on the 25th December.   After what seemed like the longest labour and one moment where I had a bit of a wobble, I delivered him naturally with only gas and air.…

My labour was moving much, much quicker!

Today (1st February) is my youngest child’s 4th Birthday. His birth had more plot twists than Hollyaoks and was quite possibly THE most empowering and unbelievable experience I have ever had. Please note that it wasn’t perfect…and oh my days, it totally didn’t go to plan. But it showed me the power I have within…

In case you aren’t familiar with that term, here is a definition as per Wikipedia (!).”The compulsion to compare one’s…

“I’m so proud of myself.’

Thank you to Shelley Frith, who did The Calm Birth School Homestudy Video Programme, for sharing her amazing birth story with us.  “My previous birth left me with PTSD. I ‘failed to progress’ and I felt I ‘failed’ at every part of the labour and subsequent early weeks. It was a very difficult time for…

Attention Truth Tellers!!

?ATTENTION TRUTH TELLERS? Badasses. Queens. Women. We have all been lied to. All of our damned lives. The lie has damaged us. It has broken our confidence. Clouded our judgements. Caused us to think that we are weak. Well no more. Rise up! Rise up! The lie is that Birth is an awful, terrible experience.…

I just want to tell you a little story…

Oh! Hey there! I just want to tell you a little story… There once was a girl who was very afraid of… (pretty much anything could be inserted here) birth. She was afraid of ALL the PAIN and she was afraid of ALL the DRUGS. She got pregnant. She felt more fear (so much fear).…
