5star (review on Hip Mama Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/hypnobirthlondon/reviews/)
At the very beginning I was a bit sceptical about hypnobirth
ing but it wasn’t too long before Simona thought me that this technique has nothing to do with hypnosis. There is no pendulum to watch, no out of body experience or “1-2-3 you are back in the room”. Surprising ly I discovered that hypnobirth ing is closer to meditation or cbt ( cognitive behavioura l therapy). Through the course and practise I learned invaluable new skills to ease myself into a state of calm so that my body could fully relax into labour and childbirth . And I can promise that it really worked when I had my first son Oscar and had to deal with a very long labour and some subsequent complicati ons. Furthermor e I still use some of the hypnobirth ing techniques to help myself with the big amount of fears and anxieties of which the life of a new parent is full of! I highly recommend this course because not only empowered me during labour but most importantl y it gave me skills for life!
