“It was undoubtedly the most calm, exhilarating, beautiful birth (not to mention one of the shortest) I’ve attended so far as a birth doula. Leila Botsford

Both Wade and myself are eternally grateful to have found out about Ann and her hypnobirthing courses prior to the birth of our second child in November 2009.

The techniques we learned enormously improved our birthing experience and I was able to fulfil my dream of being able to birth naturally, without the need for pain killers and other drugs.

Through completing the hypnobirthing courses with Ann we were able to go through our pregnancy and birth with a sense of confidence and calm. It enabled Wade to play an active and ultimately essential role in the birth of his son and brought the two of us closer together as a result.

The midwife who delivered our son commented that Wade was the best birthing partner she had ever seen and to the student doctor who was present at the birth she commented that she was extraordinarily lucky to have been present at such a perfect birth.

I recommend Ann, and actively do, with the highest enthusiasm.

If you want to experience birth as a beautiful, natural event (which I had never thought it possible to do) these courses are a must.
Thank you so much Ann for assisting us in having a wonderful memory of our birth.

All our love”

As soon as my husband and I met Ann we both felt instantly at ease. She made us feel very relaxed and confident.

Ann’s nursing background really shows because her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and experience with people contact is excellent. This translates well to her teaching of hypnobirthing. Ann is very knowledgeable in this field and was able to answer any questions we had throughout the course.

The hypnobirthing worked well for us, we had a healthy boy born without any fear of birthing and no medical intervention.

SAM: “Hypnobirthing enabled us to have the birthing experience we had always dreamed of. The birth of our first child got off to a good start but ended very traumatically with control taken out of our hands. Hypnobirthing gave me back the confidence and knowledge that I could be in control. I felt empowered and had the belief that I could give birth the way I wanted and had planned for.

Overall, the birth was an amazing experience and totally different to the first. Trent’s support was fantastic. He encouraged me throughout in a genuine and meaningful way. He helped me focus on breathing, mind visualisations and relaxation. We worked really well together. Ruby was born into water, calm and relaxed. I am so pleased that I was introduced to Ann and the Hypnobirthing technique – I would highly recommend it!”

TRENT: “I must admit that I felt no more than an excited onlooker and glorified drinks provider at the birth of our first child. When things went wrong I was completely lost and out of my depth. At first I was sceptical about Hypnobirthing. Being a typical male, I follow logic and enjoy a well defined process. Was Hypnobirthing some sort of hippy thing? How would the visualisation of a rainbow help deliver our baby?

Having experienced it, Hypnobirthing does make sense. It is logical and gave me a specific, important and purposeful role. Sam was amazing. She was in total control although I had to remind her of the various techniques we had learnt. We had an aim and objective, and we were equipped with the tools needed to achieve that objective. Although Zak’s birth was wonderful, it was a totally different experience from that of Ruby which was one of celebration and elation.”
