HypnoBirthing® gave me a most priceless gift – a childbirth experience that was free of fear

Nothing can describe the beauty of our birthing experience with HypnoBirthing®. I never dreamed of having two children with another method that I could have so easy a labour.

The nurses said they had never seen a woman so calm, yet so strong. They couldn’t put the HypnoBirthing® book down.

Our daughter came into this world so much easier than either of us could have hoped for. With Godspeed, keep up the good work of HypnoBirthing®.

Outstanding! Easy to learn relaxation and breathing patterns guided me through a five-hour, pain-free labour. I will treasure the experience forever!

Wonderful! Tell everyone that it is the only way…my doctor is so impressed!

As a HypnoBirthing Dad, I can't talk highly enough of the course. I learn't how to support my partner in a way that made the birth so special for both of us!
