“I was so afraid. I was so uneducated about birth. I had no idea…”

This is me aged 27 pretty much straight after the birth of my first child. This was the start of it all. The start of a journey that led me through 2 more births, into parenting 3 children and the beginning of understanding myself more.   I was so afraid. I was so uneducated about…

“Our birth was truly a team effort. It was perfect, and we now have a chilled Hypno baby.”
