Are you worrying about your upcoming birth, having seen and heard negative birth stories from your friends and in the press?

To discover how you can have a relaxed and stress free birth, scroll down and read below!

You know a birth that you look back on with pride and not sadness is possible, but no idea how to achieve it. 


You’ve got nobody to ask the important questions, to stop you worrying about what could happen.


Your the type of woman who usually has everything under control, yet you are worrying about the unknown of labour. 


Like me you’ve probably scoured Facebook groups and the internet to try and find out as much information as you can, yet still feel unprepared. 


Do you and your birth partner want to work as a team on the day? And no, I don’t mean being a chief hand holder and mopper of brow, but how they can be your advocate on the day and how best to support you and protect your birthing environment. 


You need a safe place to discuss your worries and fears about birth.


You have questions, that need answering. You want inspiration and tools and techniques to help you stay in control of your labour. Not a vague strategy that will never be implemented.


Are you looking for support from someone who is passionate about being there for you every step of the way?

This is what my Inner Calm Birth classes provide. And it delivers.

Where your desire for a positive birth meets my passion to help pregnant couples achieve the right birth on the day. 

No more will you feel confused or worried about what could happen on the day, but you will feel prepared to handle anything birth throws at you. 

My Inner Calm Birth classes are for pregnant couples who want to look back on their birth with pride, knowing that every decision was made by them, that they remained calm and in control no matter what direction their birth took.

The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme

I teach The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme which uses hypnosis techniques to keep you calm relaxed and in control during birth. There are many birthing programmes that use hypnosis techniques that are collectively called Hypnobirthing. The Wise Hippo has a unique approach as we do not focus on one specific way of birthing with one specific outcome. We appreciate that every woman has unique needs, wants and concerns about their baby’s birth and we teach with this in mind. This in turn enables each woman to prepare for their baby’s birth in a way that feels right for them and ultimately to achieve the right birth on the day.

I will travel to your home within an hour’s drive of my home in Clare, Suffolk or to a venue that you feel suits you best. If you live further than an hour away please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss, I am sure we can work something out.
