The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is a complete 10 hour course that runs as 4 × 2.5 hour classes and is specific to birthing in the UK. It will prepare you and your birth companion so you are informed about the options and choices available to you. It will impart you with the knowledge you need to focus on the birth being a normal and natural event, and helps take away the ‘fear' of the birthing process. You will both learn how to relax and remain calm during labour, supported with a manual with all the information you need including a practice diary and a birth plan, and MP3 files which can be downloaded from the website. I also include an individual post-birth session, where we go through the birth and how it was for you. I can signpost you to useful postnatal services, or any support that you need.
This is often described as the best money ever spent – it is worth asking for donations from friends and family rather than the usual baby gifts. A calm and peaceful birth is the best gift you can give yourself and your baby.
Please see my website for full details of what is covered in the course, plus you can book online.
