Every Baby Only Has The One Chance To Be Born

Make It The Best, Calmest Experience You Can

WOW, twins, triplets or even more!! 

OK, now that the initial excitement, nausea at the thought of giving birth to multiples has passed i am sure you are now thinking about how you are going to get them all out. 
Thats where I step in. 
I am sure you will be attending our classes with your own set of fears, concerns and aspirations for your baby’s birth. 
However, with a twin or multiple pregnancy you will most likely be deemed in the higher risk category and dependent on what type of twins  you are carrying will determine where you sit on the scale of high risk. 
You have most likely already had many conversations about what could go wrong rather than what could go right and probably been told the best course of action you should take to help avoid the negatives. 
This is unfortunate as no woman wants to feel that they don’t have a choice in determining what type of birth they have for their baby, you want to feel informed and be heard. 
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme for Twins/Multiple births is an adaptation of the Wise Hippo Birthing programme and will help prepare you for the most amazing day of your lives.

During our time together we will cover:

Class 1: Confident

You and your Birth Partner will lay a great foundation upon which to grow in confidence.

  • Bust any negative beliefs you may have about birth.
  • Get comfortable with what we mean by hypnosis. There are no swinging watches and getting you to cluck like a chicken we promise.
  • Familiarise yourself with the physiology of birth so you can let go of worrying about how all of that stuff works. We bet you will be fascinated.
  • Understand how the mind interprets PAIN… so that you can learn how to manage and control it.
  • Take charge of your thoughts so that you can enjoy your pregnancy and look forward to your birth, rather than feeling anxious and worried when it is a time for joy and happiness.

It’s your birth so take the time to consider what is important to you. 

  • Where do you want to birth?
  • What do you want your birthing environment to be like?
