I can’t tell you just how excited I am to announce that Relaxed Birthing is expanding!! I am so happy to finally be able to share that the wonderful Beccy is joining Relaxed Birthing to teach hypnobirthing in Stroud, Stonehouse and surrounding areas.
Beccy is mum to two children and has first-hand experience of hypnobirthing and the impact it can have on your birth and life. And very importantly for me, Beccy is a perfect fit for Relaxed Birthing – she is passionate, knowledgeable and recognises the importance of a positive birth experience. She is also warm, friendly, honest, down to earth and reassuring. Everything that I’d want in anyone working in my team. I just know that any parents working with Beccy for hypnobirthing will be in safe hands.
“Hypnobirthing has changed my life and continues to positively influence myself and my family. Birth isn’t over and done with in a day or two; it impacts your journey into motherhood and influences your relationships. How you give birth is not important. How you feel about it is. Over the last few years I have become fiercely passionate about how women feel when they are preparing to welcome a new human into our world. I want to help women understand how outrageously strong we are and realise that we should feel like nothing other than a complete and utter goddess when we are birthing our babies, whichever way this will be.”Beccy
When I started training as an antenatal teacher in 2010 it was because I had a passion for antenatal education and knew the difference it could make to women and their partners as they approached birth and parenthood. I also wanted as many women as possible to learn hypnobirthing techniques to help them have a calm and positive birth, and to learn skills for life. I wanted to teach classes that were honest, realistic, empowering – and personal. I didn’t want to deliver a prescribed off-the-shelf course. I knew the parents I would be working with were individuals and so needed a course that could be flexible and accommodating to their needs. I still believe this, and this is what I deliver at Relaxed Birthing. And now I am so happy to have met Beccy as she shares the same drive and passion to want to share hypnobirthing far and wide.
Beccy trained in hypnobirthing in 2018 and already has glowing reviews from the parents she has worked with:
“….The space she created was so calming and relaxing, the moment I arrived I wound down. I felt at my most connected to my baby during our sessions! The ‘meditations’ we did were wonderful and her voice really took me to the places she was describing. I actually found myself in labour imagining her voice reciting the ‘meditations’ again. I coped much better with the latter stages of my pregnancy keeping calm & during the last few weeks of waiting for the imminent arrival.”
Group and private hypnobirthing courses will continue in Cheltenham and Gloucester with me, and Beccy is available now to book for private hypnobirthing courses in Stroud and the surrounding areas. She loves to talk about birth and hypnobirthing (something else we have in common!) and would love to hear from you – you can reach her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of love Yvonne (& Beccy!) xxx
