What Parents Are Saying
Just wanted to let you know that our son arrived 7.21pm last Sat evening (3rd March) via a water birth as planned 🙂 Jakobus Johannes Smith (JJ) is just beautiful and he and I remained calm through the birthing process which was just amazing. I was able to focus on breathing through the surges and (as hypnobirthing teaches us) my labour advanced quickly and smoothly as a result. We stayed at home until I was around 7cm dilated and jumped into the pool for JJ to be born just over 1.5 hours later. (The water was great - it was so nice to feel weightless!). Thank you so much for sharing hypnobirthing with us - I have no doubt in my mind that hypnobirthing enabled us to have the natural and relaxed birth that we were wanting. I would totally recommend hypnobirthing!Lara and Henk - Auckland
My name is Vicky Mason and on Feb 12 2011, I gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Sadie. As a first time mother hypnobirthing helped me relax about the birth and embrace it as the positive experience that it was. I found the breathing techniques really helped me, my support people couldn't believe how calm I was and able to manage the surges. Claire was a fantastic teacher, very encouraging and supportive, which really helped with my confidence. I feel that every expectant mother can gain something positive from learning these techniques. Thank you so much Claire for all your help!Vicky - Auckland
Before I came to your classes I was adamant that I would birth at the hospital and take every precaution possible to have a 'safe birth'. I was also convinced I would accept all intervention, so as not to make things harder. Now I am feeling completely faithful that it is something my body and my baby can do perfectly on their own. I've chosen to birth somewhere more comfortable, am completely without fear and completely filled with confidence.. Thank you for giving me exactly what I needed to start my parenting journey so beautifully.Sara - Auckland
Hypnobirthing is a way to learn to relax and trust your body during birth. The book is brilliant. I feel calm, ready and I trust my body now. I understand the natural process of birthing and have faith in my body.Vanessa - Auckland
I think that this course is the best thing we could have done to prepare for our first baby. The relaxation exercises are very easy and effective, they made a world of difference during the birth. We feel both feel that we have learnt positive skills for life! Thank you.Bryce - Auckand
I was feeling anxious and scared about giving birth without an epidural. Now I feel empowered and relaxed in the knowledge that giving birth is what my body was designed to do, and that it doesn't have to be painful.Krystal - Auckland
Hypnobirthing is a way to make the birthing process a more positive experience. Thank you for your help and your gentle, positive approach.Harsh - Doctor, Auckland
The birth of our daughter was the most magical moment of my life.. I will never forget her little face as we met for the first time and the way she instantly locked her eyes with mine so deeply immediately after she was born, it was such a deep connection I am so pleased I could experience this moment free of the haze of drugs.Catherine - Auckland

I just wanted to send you a wee message to say a big thank you for the hypnobirthing classes which Shaun and I attended with you.
I felt at ease and confident about my babies birth before I begun the classes but working with you and practising many of the things we have learnt about has taken that ease and confidence to a whole new level!
I just feel so relaxed about the birth and most importantly, confident in my bodies ability to birth our baby naturally. We are both so very excited and I really can’t wait for the day to come!!
