"The midwives kept commenting on how relaxed and calm I was"
Hi Sue, just wanted to let you know I went into labour an hour after we spoke yesterday, and Lara was born at midnight last night, 8lb 9oz...the Hypnobirthing was fantastic, thank you so much - couldn't have been more different from my last birth. The midwives kept commenting on how relaxed and calm I was!! Didn't panic once, so thank you for the phone call yesterday...the breathing techniques were brilliant, didn't think I was in labour for the first 2 hours! :-) V. (Basingstoke)
"We managed it at home with a private midwife, completely natural and drug free"
So sorry it's taken a while but we had Arthur last Sunday evening, it was a tough labour as he was back to back with his head at an angle and an arm in my pelvis!!! But, we managed it at home with a private midwife, completely natural and drug free! Thanks for your encouragement, maybe we will bump into you and you will get to meet him. Oh, and he was 9 lbs 11 oz, huge! H , xxx (Basingstoke)
"My birthing experience was everything I wanted it to be - no drugs or gas & air, access to the birthing pool and very little intervention"
Hi Sue. Just wanted to let you know that we now have a son! Our little Harry was born quickly, easily & unexpectedly on Sunday 28th Oct at 18.28, weighing in at a tiny 5 lbs 5 oz. My birthing experience was everything I wanted it to be - no drugs or gas & air, access to the birthing pool & very little intervention. It was also quick ... thankfully! We arrived at hospital for 14.30 & Harry promptly arrived 4 hours later! So, I think the course helped. All the best to you. S & H & Baby H. (Farnborough)
"Hypnotherapy really helped very much in the birth of our baby girl"
Hi sue, this is Kay , I had 2 sessions with you in January. I just wanted to say thank you, Hypnotherapy really helped very much in the birth of our baby girl. Using Hypnotherapy, I stayed at home as long as possible, and was fully dilated by time we reached the hospital. I will spread the word! K. (Basingstoke)
"I would say it went as well as we could have ever hoped"
Hi Sue - I would say it went as well as we could have ever hoped - she had a beautiful heart trace throughout...we did lots of walking around until I was having strong contractions, and I don't feel too physically wrecked (no stitches again thank goodness!) ...pretty tired but not as beaten up as I remember previous births. Russ coped brilliantly too, used the light touch massage, helped me to focus on certain visualisations etc. Thank you for all your help - I will definitely be singing Hypnobirthing praises and recommend you to others. Thanks again and hope you like the little pic. S. (Fleet)

"We had a wonderful home birth, as planned, with no pain relief to 8cms and only gas and air thereafter"
Dear Sue, Here is baby M! We did it! We had a wonderful home birth, as planned, with no pain relief to 8cms and only gas and air thereafter. Hypnobirthing was fantastic and got us to 6 cms without any midwives present!! We are very proud. Thank you for all your help and support. Lots of Love G & D and Baby R. (Bramley)
