                                                      A warm welcome to Wonder Wombs Hypnobirthing.

   I’m so glad you’re here and have found an opportunity to empower yourself to have the amazing and positive birth experience you desire. Feel free to browse my site to find out more about me, hypnobirthing and the courses, services and ongoing support you will receive if you decide to invest in your birth this way.

  Have you heard the phrase ‘where the mind leads, the body follows?’ As a qualified KG Hypnobirthing practitioner my course will completely prepare you in both mind and body to feel calm, confident, in control and fully informed to make the right choices for you and your baby. A full KG Hypnobirthing course really is the only birth preparation and antenatal class you will need. I offer the choice of group and private classes, as well as refresher sessions if you have taken a hypnobirthing course in the past.

  Some people are sceptical of the word hypno because they have reservations about what it entails. Hypnosis however is simply deep relaxation, the state you actually reach at least twice a day when you first wake up in the morning and before you fall asleep at night! The British Medical Association also approve it as a safe and effective method of relieving pain in childbirth. Hypnobirthing teaches you how to reach this relaxed state in labour. It’s very logical and science based, and you always remain in full control. Hypnobirthing has really gained momentum over recent years. It is gradually becoming more mainstream, and for good reason! So many women from all walks of life are seeing and experiencing the power it has to challenge standardised assumptions and prevent negative experiences. These women are collectively becoming a driving force for positive change within antenatal and maternity services.

  I am based in Lancashire, close to Preston and Southport and am able to travel within the North West for private bookings as desired. In addition, I run evening and weekend group classes from Heskin Pemberton Primary School, in Heskin near Chorley. If you have any questions or apprehensions, I am more than willing to help you in any way I can, without obligation, so don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal, confidential chat with me via your preferred way of contact. I hope this will also help you decide if I am the right person to help support and benefit you in your pregnancy, birth experience and beyond. I am passionate about women’s rights and women’s choices in birth (and at all other times as it happens!) and I am driven to help everyone achieve the best birth for them, so that they can look back on it as the empowering, life affirming experience it should be. Every woman deserves that.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Love Jo
