BEST. RESOURCE. EVER!!! A must for all.

If nothing else, THIS is the resource that EVERY pregnant person and their partner should utilise. My partner and I watched 1 episode(?) per wk and let me tell you, we both felt so calm, comfortable and prepared for our homebirth and thereafter. He raves to all his mates how good it was, urging those with pregnant partners to watch it together, as do I. We both loved B's attitude and conversational yet professional approach. Her pride and passion for her work is clear and this brings a real sense of ease around a typically over-medicalised physiological event. Thanks B for helping to prepare me and my man for an incredibly special first birth (for what it's worth, it was less than 4hr labour, ~45min of pushing, no tearing)!!!

10000/10 absolutely incredible!!

Since this is my second pregnancy and I took a hypnobirth class with my first I thought I knew all I need to know about labour and birth. I couldn’t be more wrong!

This women is so incredibly knowledgeable and so easy to listen to for hours. I found myself laughing and crying and learning so much amazing information. I stupidly started these classes at 40 weeks pregnant, and got through to the class about pushing before I went into labour for real.

From the moment labour started I felt so in control! The horses breath was an absolute game changer!!!!! I could literally feel the pain shift so much after I relaxed my face and hands, also whispering affirmations to myself was amazing. I stayed at home as long as I could manage the pain and with all the techniques I learnt in this course I did the whole thing drug free, we left home and after a 5 minute drive to the hospital baby was born in 2 easy pushes the second we got into the birth suite.

Thank you for changing my whole perspective and attitude towards birth. You’re epic! I’m sharing this with everyone ❤️
