Everything I teach on The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is based on physiological and medical fact and is how the mind is already working. In fact, there isn’t anything new to learn we are just taking what the mind is doing and looking at it from a different perspective.

Mothers, you will learn powerful techniques that ensure that you are able to remain emotionally and physically relaxed during labour enabling your body to work at its best. This in turn will also ensure that you are able to remain calm and in control throughout your labour no matter what turn your birthing takes.
