"Hi baby Matthew was born at 1156 last night weighing 8lbs 2oz. Managed to have him in the pool. Hypnobirthing definitely helped - Thank you it was a pleasure meeting you too and you really helped and changed my whole
Birth experience. Xx "
"Hi Lynsey. Tom Penn here. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the help you gave Sophie. She was calm, controlled and generally amazing and I think that was all down to the confidence and empowerment you managed to instill in her. Birth scripts worked a dream and the time you spent going through her birth plan with her was so valuable. Generally just a much more positive experience than first time around and i think a lot of that is down to all the calming techniques you taught her. Thank you again"
Our hypnobirthing experience was so amazing and Lynsey made us feel so comfortable throughout. I was apprehensive before starting as I wasn’t sure what to expect but the course exceeded all my expectations and really changed my view of birth and how to approach it. I no longer felt nervous or scared to give birth - instead I felt relaxed and excited. Lynsey also really made my partner Billy feel included which was really important to us both because partners can sometimes feel left out. This certainly wasn’t the case with Lynsey in her sessions. I learnt such valuable relaxation and breathing techniques for during labour that I still carry through to day to day life to help cope with any stressful situations that arise.
Our perfect daughter arrived after an hour and a half, with only gas and air. I believe my labour was as amazing as it was due to the hypnobirthing sessions; both Billy and I were so calm and relaxed it made the whole experience beautiful. I recommend Lynsey and her hypnobirthing to everyone!
Lynsey introduced me to hypno-birthing when I was pregnant with my second child and I didn't have a clue what she was talking about haha, I'd never heard of it before.
I had my first child 8 years prior and it was a tough labour. She was 10 days late and I was in labour for 44 hours. I felt so alone, so scared, I didn't have any idea what i was doing or what i was supposed to do and so I had all the drugs I could have, which obviously slowed everything down.
When I became pregnant with my second child I was determined to have a completely different labour. I'd asked Lynsey to be one of my birthing partners and having agreed, she told me about hypno-birthing and we had a session during my pregnancy, I'd never felt so relaxed.
We used the hypno-birthing techniques as soon as my contractions got going and continued throughout my labour.
Hypno-birthing allowed me to have the labour I wanted, I felt like I was in full control. I was able to block out everything going on around me and focus. Focus on my partner and focus on Lynsey's voice, guiding me through every step of the way. I remember panicking at one point but just listened out for Lynsey to guide me and it worked. My Son arrived 6 hours later in the birthing pool with only gas and air. A perfect labour for me.
So if you've never heard of hypno-birthing or you're apprehensive about it, I would say give it a go.
A big thank you to Lynsey for all your help, support and guidance, I really couldn't have done it without you.
