with Joan Mills
Hypnobirthing is birth preparation or ante-natal education using simple tools & techniques to help have a calm and relaxed labour, resulting in a positive birth for mum and baby.
It is a fresh new approach to the original Mongan method, it is simple, logical and practical with a strong evidence base to support it. Many women approach their labour and birth with fear because of the negativity that surrounds them and the assumption that it has to be painful.
Fear during labour has a negative physiological effect on the body and this causes pain, slows down labour and blocks the release of the helpful birth hormones.
I teach couples how to remain calm and in control, which encourages the body to work more efficiently as nature intended.
Hypnobirthing The Wise Hippo way isn’t just about natural birth or pain-free birth it’s so much more. It’s about the whole experience from pregnancy to early parenting and beyond. We like to say it’s from Bump to Birth to Baby.
I am fortunate to be teaching couples something I love. It is an amazing programme and I passionately believe it makes a difference to people’s lives.
With what I teach in my hypnobirthing classes, I’m helping to build confident mothers and fathers that trust their instincts ,and make good choices for themselves and their families.
Does this sound like something you might like to try?
The Wise Hippo birthing program’s approach is one of empowerment & confidence building with life-changing skills thrown in for good measure. It is about having the right birth on the day and every birth story being a success story.
Women using the techniques I teach are regularly reported to use less pain relief, enjoy shorter labours and their babies are born calm and alert with high Apgar scores (the first test on a newborns physical condition after birth).
Having a positive birth experience results in calmer babies that eat and sleep better. It also makes for strong confident mothers who trust themselves and their natural instincts to make good choices for their families.
I can offer you support every step of your journey with reflexology, hypnobirthing, and my doula services. I am based in Harpenden, St Albans, and Hatfield and support parents and parents to be, through out Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
That’s me, Joan Mills and I am in the baby business to help you help yourself.
