I attended the amazing Hypnobirthing course this weekend.
Admittedly being a bit naive, I assumed when I went into labour the midwives would just tell me what to do and I’d just go along with everything. After attending the course I realised everything is totally up to me and how being in control will make for a much easier delivery.
Terri taught me so much about how understanding your body and what it’s doing makes for such a better birth and how you can use your mind to control your body.
I feel so much more prepared, and able to make choices on what I want. I’ve realised the fear of birth is not needed, because really it was a fear of the unknown. Big thanks to Terri, and if there’s any other expectant mums out there, I’d really recommend this course x
Any of my pregnant or soon to be pregnant friends, don't while away your pregnancy using social media groups, on apps or googling everything and anything about your little bean... it won't prepare you Take time to prepare, to feel better and to look after yourself... enjoy it! Take a look at this page, mark it for later or whatever... Honestly, Terri's a wealth of knowledge and able to offer bespoke, qualified care throughout pregnancy and in the early haze of new born 'bliss' x
Time supported me endlessly during pregnancy and throughout my feeding journey with my little one. Some may say I'm a little bit of a worrier, so I knew I had to get this pregnancy malarkey sussed in my head, so I could stay positive. Terri was so knowledgable and with the use of her hypnobirthing advice, gave me the skills to stay positive and focussed during my labour. I was so overwhelmed by the amount information and conflicting advice you get given during pregnancy. Terri always gave great advice and the pros/cons for each treatment, this empowered me to make my own decisions. She gave evidence based advice on everything from growing pains, stretch marks right down to essential oils and pregnancy massages.
Breastfeeding wasn't an easy journey for myself to begin with. I very nearly gave up before I even left hospital. Terri supported me at a low point where I felt like I was failing my son. I never felt like I was being judged, she gave practical and easy advice in such a positive way that made me feel like I could carry on. Great advice was given on skin to skin, eating the right foods, milk production, correct positioning of baby and myself and different feeding positions.
I could write reems and reems but the main point is that Terri was absolutely amazing during pregnancy and way way beyond and I couldn't have done it without her. Thank you so much TIME x x
