Hypnobirthing with Love Your Birth

Love Your Birth

As the founder of Love Your Birth I offer both group and Bespoke one to one Hypnobirthing classes. As an experienced Hypnobirthing teacher I know what works. Expect a logical, clear and honest approach to Hypnobirthing. Absolutely no false promises or hippy mumbojumbo.

I will show you how to work with your body rather than against it and support you in whatever choices you make in your baby’s birth, where ever you chose that to be. Hypnobirthing isn’t about a ‘type’ of birth it’s tools, techniques and a mindset to be fearless, calm and have the best possible experience for you!
