Empowering women & positive births are a passion for us because we believe that every mum-to-be deserves the best experience. From the moment a woman learns she is pregnant, she begins a journey of discovery and transformation. It honestly is the most incredible thing in the world! This journey is not always easy, but with the right resources and support, it can be a beautiful and empowering experience that sets the stage for a healthy and happy life for both of you.
You only ever hear the bad stories
Say to say, but unfortunately people seem to LOVE telling you the bad stuff. I remember when I was expecting our daughter, the first thing EVERYONE would tell me is traumatic stories of child birth, terrible scenes from certain TV shows or films … basically all the things to send an anxiety ridden, over thinker like myself into overdrive.
I was taught the lovely Sarah at Henley Hypnobirthing about the "cloak of protection" and I still use it now!
Mindset is everything
I thought to myself this is crazy! There must be another way. So I started looking into positive birthing and HypnoBirthing. Now, it all sounded a bit woo-woo to me to at first but if I have learnt ANYTHING over the last 10 years growing this incredible business mindset is everything.
...And to be honest I was willing to try anything to not feel that gut wrenching fear I had when thinking about those screaming women on hospital beds on TV…
Just knowing the basics of the science (thats right, SCIENCE) behind it makes so much sense. The body's reactions of oxytocin & adrenaline during your pregnancy/labour was incredible and harnessing this to have the best experience possible - even if things don't go to plan.
Your Birth, your choice.
One of the most important aspects of empowering births is ensuring that mothers have access to accurate information and resources that promote positive birth and pregnancy experiences. This includes information about the health benefits of natural childbirth, the benefits of breastfeeding, and the importance of prenatal care. We also believe that mothers-to-be should have access to supportive and compassionate care from healthcare professionals who understand the unique needs and challenges of pregnancy.
Many places will tell expectant parents that you must go to a certain hospital or go a certain route during your labour but it really is your choice - chat with local midwife centres, doula’s and home birthing teams to get all the information to make the choice which is right for you and your baby.
The NHS trusts now have access to hypnobirthing courses in many foundations across the UK - check out the NHS website.
The health benefits for mum, baby and subsequent weeks after birth are proving to be huge plus it’s even said to ease the pressure on the NHS itself as less intervention and resources are needed - win, win!
Quicker recovery - Yes please!
Positive birth and pregnancy experiences have been shown to have numerous health benefits for both mothers and babies. For example, women who have positive birth experiences are less likely to suffer from postpartum depression or anxiety, recover quicker and their babies are more likely to have fewer complications.
At the heart of our passion for empowering births is a commitment to spreading the word about positive birth and pregnancy experiences, even if it just makes Mum’s more confident about the experience. Knowledge is power Thank goodness, long gone are the days when no-one discussed what happens in child birth.
Knowledge is power!
We believe that every mother-to-be deserves to feel empowered and supported throughout her pregnancy and birth journey.
