Hello Leyla, James and the whole great team at Purely Pregnant. Our baby girl Alma safely and happily arrived on the 30th August 2016, two days before the due date. We had a home birth and everything went so well. I still cannot comprehend how quick the delivery was… My waters broke during sleep at 2.50 AM and Alma gave me her first cuddle at 7.12 AM. Yes – that makes 4 hours and 22 Read more…

Dorota and Diego

I just had my baby boy Diego on Friday 19th August 2016, overdue 41+3. After we moved to Madrid, I was lucky to find a clinic that has a Natural Birth division and a great doctor and midwives that even did a HypnoBirthing course themselves in the UK! I just wanted to let you know how deeply grateful I am for your classes both for the pregnancy yoga and the hypnobirthing! With the hypnobirthing, I Read more…

Suzanne, Alex and Effie

Effie

My husband, Alex and I were on your course in September 2015 and found it really beneficial. It proved to be very useful too when labour kicked in and really helped me. Firstly, she (Effie) was 2 weeks early and I had no idea I was in labour and before I knew it contractions were 3 mins apart and really quite challenging! My husband was great and got straight on the phone to the hospital. Read more…

Tamar and Eli

I am pleased to announce Eli Daniel Couzens calmly arrived at 01:52 on Saturday 17th October 2015 weighing in at 7lb 14oz. We are all very content and the homebirth went fantastically with our two wonderful midwives. For the first few hours of surges I used the birthing pool which was set up in our living room and eventually gave birth on a mat on our living room floor without any pushing. The hypnobirthing practice Read more…

Gemma, Sam and Leo

Just wanted to drop you an email to let you know that our son, Leo Peter Grindle was born at home on 19th March weighing 6lb 12oz. Our birth was really amazing, and overwhelmingly positive I think largely down to the breathing and relaxation techniques I learned in hypnobirthing and pregnancy yoga. For me, labour was something I was really dreading at the start of my pregnancy but I found that hypnobirthing completely changed my Read more…

Ilana, Aaron and Neri

Neri HypnoBirthing

We just wanted to let you know that our beautiful baby daughter arrived on 3rd April 2014 in our living room! It was a wonderful home birth, even though she was back-to-back – lots of hypnobirth techniques were used to help get through the labour without any painkillers apart from 2 paracetamol! The breathing techniques really helped me and although I can’t say there wasn’t any pain it was all totally worth it once the Read more…

Harriet, David & Henry

HypnoBirthing Baby

Henry William was born on the 27th June 2013 weighing 7 pounds 7 ounces. The birth was a wonderful experience which I know was down to the hypnobirthing techniques – I can’t thank you enough and I have been telling everyone I know that hypnobirthing is the way forward! I was really relaxed in the days leading up to my due date – in fact I was looking forward to the birth so I could Read more…

Nicki, Mark & Jasmine

DSC_0485

Baby Jasmine was born at Cossham at 21:57 on 24/04/2013.  Mark and I originally went into Cossham on Tues morning (23rd) as contractions had started the night before but we were told I was only 1 1/2 – 2cm dilated so went home to progress. We went back to Cossham on the Wednesday morning a little disheartened as I did not believe that the labour had really progressed. The Midwife tried to manage our expectations by advising us that, given Read more…

Grace, Dan and Thalia

Hypnobirthing Baby Thalia

We had our baby girl on Saturday 4th May 2013 evening in a birthing pool as planned! Thalia Eden Morgan Tait was exactly a week after her due date. I was booked in for a scan at St Micheals on Tues to check everything was okay as I had refused 2 sweeps, being determined to do everything naturally this time. I was feeling seriously chilled out after all the positive affirmations and rainbow relaxations and Read more…

Kate, Stu and Esme

Esme - HypnoBirthing Baby

Just to let you know our little girl Esme was born Tues Feb 19th 2013 at 7.47pm. Labour was fine, so much so I thought (along with the midwives) that the contractions had stopped as all I had was a pain in my bottom! Luckily they examined me before inducing me (as my waters had broken) and found I was fully dilated and ready to go! Esme born 2 hours later and the only pain Read more…

Amy, Rich and Wren

Wren

Little Wren Olive was born in the pool on Monday 28th January 2013 at home, weighing 7lb 8oz. Thanks again James & Leyla. We’ve no doubt that your course empowered us to take control and thoroughly enjoy our birthing experience this time round!

Sarah, Chris and Bella

Belle Bayliss

Bella was born on the 2nd January 2013, 11 days late. Luckily she was born naturally, and St Michael’s were amazing not pushing for induction – they did everything to meet my birth plan, and I feel very lucky that my birth went exactly to plan. I went into labour at around 10pm, my contractions where immediately regular from the start, 2 contractions every 10 mins lasting about 30 seconds. I spent most of my Read more…

Nicki, James & Benjamin

IMG_0623

Benjamin who was born on 28th September 2012. I had the most amazing hypnobirth and despite his rather ‘healthy’ birth weight of 9lbs 1oz, I didn’t need any pain relief or intervention except an episiotomy to get his enormous head out! We got to hospital at 9.00. Our midwife  found that I was 6cm dilated when I arrived, which was a huge relief as I was terrified about being sent home. By 10.30 I was Read more…

Anna and Nina

Anna Nina

I gave birth to Nina Seren White, weighing 6lb 7oz at St Michael’s on 14th October 2010. My birth was fantastic!! My waters broke at a reflexology appointment and I was bussed up the hill to the hospital. My labour was 9 hours from the waters breaking – I dilated at a steady pace. I only used a Tens machine for relief…though I did have a doula who massaged my lower back through every surge Read more…

Kristal and Minnie

HypnoBirthing Mum Kristal

I gave birth to Minnie on 20th July 2010, weighing 8lb 3oz at Southmead Hospital. I would really recommend the HypnoBirthing course, it made me much calmer and more relaxed overall and I was able to enjoy my pregnancy and be really active, I was not concerned about the labour. The early stage of labour progressed quickly home and my husband helped me focus on the HypnoBirthing techniques so that when the midwives arrived, I Read more…

Addy, Darren & Zac

zacspag1

We had a beautiful baby boy, Zac on 1 October 2011 – he was 6 days late. My labour was 9.5 hours long. I managed at home with a tens machine and by the time we got to hospital I was already 8 cm dilated. It was lucky we ignored the advice of the midwife who told us to stay at home (as she didn’t think I sounded like I was in labour) or we Read more…

Theo, Rhianna and George

Theo Sherring

Our beautiful baby boy arrived 4 days late of schedule on Monday 25th February 2013 at 5.14am weighing a good size- 8 pounds 7oz! After my waters went and contractions started on the Saturday evening, I managed to stay at home with my birthing ball and HypnoBirthing techniques before going to Cossham hospital. I had gas and air only whilst in the birthing pool and still using all of the HypnoBirthing techniques until I was Read more…
