Hypnobirthing

It's not what you think it is

Many associate hypnosis with stage hypnosis. I promise I won't have you clucking like a chicken or looking into my eyes and losing consciousness. This is staged. In short, hypnobirthing takes you into a relaxed state. It'll be a trance-like state we use every day such as daydreaming, enjoying a good movie and drifting off to sleep.

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


Everything we 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.
