hypnobirth

All the techniques kept me calm and focused

Thank you to Charlotte and Jonny for sharing their birth story with us! This couple did a private Hypnobirthing course with the lovely Jessica Shipley, founder of The Calm Mama Co in Yorkshire, UK. When my labour started I felt calm and relaxed remembering all the techniques Jess taught me. I got in the bath and…

I LOVE telling my birth story!

Thank you to Megan & Peter for sharing the birth of baby Ruby. This lovely couple did a face to face course with TCBS Instructor Anna Owen from Rock Your Birth based in Bromsgrove in the UK.  So here is Ruby’s birth…….  “It’s taken me a long time to get round to writing this but…

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).…

“I am so proud and happy with his birth”

This weeks story comes from Bex & Moby who did an ‘in-person’ TCBS Hypnobirthing Course with the lovely Jennifer Scholes from Empowered Bumps Hypnobirthing in Southport, UK. Its short but it oh so sweet!  “I am so proud and happy with his birth would love to share. This was my first baby and we home birthed…

“You can do this! You got this!”

This weeks birth story comes from one of our on-line students, Kimberley Longoria (who had her baby back in 2016, which proves it is never too late to send your birth story in!). In 2008, I had my first child, a beautiful baby girl, in the hospital. I thought my water had broke, but it…

I feel justified in saying that this was MY perfect birth

This me. Age 29. After the birth of my second child. I cannot tell you how much I love this photo. It fills my heart every time I look at it. I can see and feel the joy that I experienced in this moment. I don’t use the word ‘perfect’ lightly and I feel that…

Is it you?

    A little story… There was a once a woman, a woman who thought that she wasn’t strong. This woman became pregnant! She was over the moon! Excited is an understatement! But once that excitement simmered down she felt the fear. The fear of the unknown. The fear of her body failing her (which…
Deep breathing in labour

Why your deep breathing may not work during labour?

Just a quick on from me today, I am in baby mode, which is lovely! And I wanted to hop on and share why your deep breathing might not work during labour. I have been getting crazy mad Braxton Hicks during the end of this pregnancy, so much so that I’ve even called up my…

How long should I practise my hypnobirthing techniques every day?

I saw a comment in a Facebook Group couple of days ago with a lady asking, “Do I need to be practicing for one hour a day?” It’s something that comes up quite a lot, particularly when people find the Calm Birth School, or whatever hypnobirthing method that they’ve signed up to, quite late in…

“It’s not a conventional hypnobirthing story but the principles can still apply.”

Dear Suzy, I am lying here listening to my 11 day old baby boy Oscar snuffling away in his cot and thought I’d write you my birth story. It’s not a conventional hypnobirthing story but maybe one that shows whatever happens the principles can still apply. I went into early stages of labour on a…
