What They Are Saying...
Maddy & Tim Wokingham
Super anxious and scared which made me less excited about pregnancy than I should have been. I only imagined the worst due to multiple horror stories I had heard from friends along with the typical, painful labour scenes on TV. I had no idea of the process or stages involved in labour and assumed it was agonising from the start.
How did you feel before the course?
You get out what you put in! With preparation and knowledge of the process, I feel I will be more in control and that the experience will actually be enjoyable rather than terrifying. I now know what my body is doing during surges, what breathing techniques and positions to use to ease the pain, what to pack in my hospital bag but more importantly, what options I have when faced with difficult questions or scenarios. The best part is that Kezia showed us some birthing videos which proved that applying hypnobirthing techniques can transform the journey into one that both myself and my partner can embrace.
How do you feel now?
Hypnobirthing with Kezia was completely different to what I expected from ‘HYPNOBIRTHING’. If honest, I was a little sceptical before starting the course but after the first half hour I realised I was wrong in my preconceived ideas.
Before starting the course, I was apprehensive and worried about labour – predominantly because I felt useless, unaware and unable to support my partner when she will need me most. Since completing the course I feel prepared and confident that I will be of help during the birthing journey. It’s given me more excitement about ‘the big day’ and I thank Kezia for helping us achieve this.
