I was informed about hypnobirthing by the midwife when I had my first appointment in hospital. I had informed the midwife that my sleep wasn't great. So I researched Hypnobirthing and completed a 5 week course. What I have taken from the course is a readiness and calmness. My sleep has also improved but that really is a secondary gain I got from it. I would recommend this course if anybody is having times where they are overthinking or worried about having a baby or going through labour.
I found this course very helpful as it's my first baby. I don't really know what to expect when it comes to the birthing stage. This course has helped me to focus on the positive and look forward to meeting my baby. I find the meditation and hypnosis a relaxing tool to have through pregnancy, to take a time out and have some "me time". It helps me to relax and wind down. Michael has a very calming and soothing voice and the MP3 audios will definitely be coming with me to the labour ward.

I genuinely feel more empowered and positive about my pregnancy journey and birth following the mindful hypnobirthing course. I can only say I'm delighted I did this course for myself and baby, I feel much happier and hopeful, having had a traumatic hospital experience with first baby. I was struggling to put that aside and concentrate on number 2 pregnancy. Michael helped me with this. I am very grateful to him. Thank you.
