BirthBalm - For a calmer, easier, positive birth.
HypnoBirthing™ Antenatal Classes run by Louise Balm, Qualified, Practising Midwife with 12 years experience, Certified HypnoBirthing™ Practitioner having taught over 100 HypnoBirthing mums, and HypnoBirthing™ mum of two.
Group or private classes taught in St Albans or if you prefer, privately in your own home.
The difference between conventional antenatal classes and HypnoBirthing™, is that conventional antenatal classes will tell you that you should relax when you are birthing. In BirthBalm HypnoBirthing™ classes, I will teach you how to relax, giving you all the necessary tools to do this.
Here's a recent email I received from one of my HypnoBirthing mums:
Just wanted to let you know that Finley was born at home on Monday
6th May at 02:12 weighing 8lb 9oz. He is perfect and Jamie and I are both doing
well, just tired and working out what our little man needs and how to do it!
I'll write up a bit more of a birth story when I have a bit more time but I can only say I think all the Hypnobirthing practice and classes must have paid off! We didn't even have time to get the pool filled up in the end, he was with us in in 3hrs for start to finish! Think the midwife was in a bit of shock when she arrived to the house and observed me in the bath and then examined me and said I was fully dilated!
I ended up delivering in the bedroom and we all had a cup of tea and a flapjack and cuddle afterwards :-)
I was so proud and happy that we did it at home and that all went so well, no stitches and no gas and air even. So thank you very much!
