Look Forward To Your Birth & Feel Fantastic After

Midwife-Led Hypnobirthing Antenatal courses and Placenta Encapsulation for Natural & C-Section births

Louise Balm Registered Midwife St Albans Hertfordshire

Congratulations on your pregnancy, or happy browsing if you are simply planning ahead!

So, you’ve probably heard horror stories about birth, and are worried it might be long, painful, and fear losing control.

You may be feeling anxious about needing stitches or how you’ll feel and recover after the birth.

Or, perhaps you just want the confidence and reassurance from antenatal classes led by a Midwife.

If this sounds like you, I can help!

Did you know that Hypnobirthing…

  • Shortens labour
  • Decreases pain
  • Increases your chance of having a natural birth
  • Gets birth partners involved
  • Promotes quicker recovery after the birth especially with placenta pills

By the time your baby is due, you’ll be feeling calm, confident, prepared; and looking forward to the birth of your baby!


“Louise’s experience as a Midwife and calm and friendly manner set her apart from the rest. I highly recommend her classes to anyone who wants to feel calm, relaxed, mentally and physically prepared and ready for the labour.”
