Nicola, Colin and Marley

Hi Maureen,
We just wanted to share our birth story with you and any mums-to-be considering hypnobirthing. We had a beautiful, calm and relaxed home birth without any complications just as planned. I even went into labour on my due date just as I'd visualised, I am now truly amazed at the power of the mind! Colin and i enjoyed our time with you very very much, your support and expertise are second to none and i would highly recommend your sessions to any expectant mums...i would say though that you have to practise as much as you can leading up to the birth as it definitely pays off! Such a positive experience for all 3 of us.
Keep up the good work Maureen!
Lots of love Nicola, Colin and Marley xxx

Harrison James Storey

Hi Maureen
Just a quick email to let you know that I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Saturday at 9:20am and we have called him Harrison James Storey - he weighed 8lb. I will send you an email with all the details asap but I got the birth that we planned.
I started at 10pm on friday, had a water birth at home and delivered him myself. I loved it all and found it very mangeable. Chris helped me through transition and the last 30 mins were intense but I coped very well and will forever be grateful for the breathing techniques I learnt! I'd do it again tomorrow - well, once the bruising has gone. It was amazing!!! Thank u so much - i've already given your number to a friend of mine who was blown away by my birthing story.
Harrison is perfect and very calm!
Jo and Chris

Dear Maureen,
We just wanted to say thank you for all your help and support throughout our pregnancy and birth. Hypnobirthing is the most wonderful thing we could have done to ensure that we had the birth that we wanted.
I had never been a maternal person and never really wanted children until it hit me like a truck at the age of 30, I was frightened to death of pregnancy and childbirth until I came to see you. At the beginning of the pregnancy I felt totally out of my comfort zone and disconnected from my growing baby. after the first hypnobirthing session I already felt a closer bond with my baby and more in control. Hypnobirthing helped me to understand what the body is capable of and the fact that this is a totally natural experience and one to be cherished for every second.
The breathing and relaxation techniques that we learned helped us through the labour, and the main thing that I used during labour was the visualisation and affirmations - they were fantastic and helped us so much. Active labour lasted about 8 and a half hours and I managed to get to the hospital when I was 9cm so within 2 hours of being at hospital our beautiful baby had arrived (it's true that your body knows what to do if you listen to it!).
The midwives totally respected our wishes, the lights were dim and they allowed me to be in my birthing body - I just focused and actually really enjoyed the birth breathing knowing that every breath was bringing our baby closer to us. Edward James Hall was born on the 17th January at 8.22pm - the midwives said I was the quietest first time Mum they had ever encountered and that birthing with us was a pleasure, so much so that the one of them came to visit us at home the following day and left with a hypnobirthing leaflet! Hypnobirthing helped me cope with pregnancy and birth and I shout about it to everyone I know - I think everyone should do it. We wouldn't change a thing about our birth and will definitely be revisiting hypnobirthing for our second child,
Thanks once again, Gill, Michael and Edward
