My midwife found it hard to judge when I was having contractions as I was so calm

My husband and I completed the hypnobirthing course in preparation for the birth of our second child. Terri was incredibly accommodating with organising the course around our availability. Due to limited childcare options Terri came to our house when we had managed to get our toddler to bed over a number of evenings. Her flexibility around this was greatly appreciated and meant that we were able to fully focus on the course and it’s content without worrying about our toddler.

The course itself took us both by surprise as we went into the course not anticipating that we would learn a huge amount particularly around birth options etc as this was our second child. In fact we were very wrong we were able to go through our first birth story and understand how the birth went the way it did and how hypnobirthing could have helped us. This really helped my husband to understand why I was so keen to have a home birth and do hypnobirthing.

Terri’s support after the course was also incredible, she went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and was always on hand to chat through any concerns we had regarding the impending birth and helping us to keep on track!

The birth itself was also an amazing experience. The home delivery was everything we wanted it to be and I managed to reach full dilation using hypnobirthing. Gas and air gave me a little boost to bring him into the world but the classes and practising all the scripts and visualisations undoubtedly helped me to remain calm and relaxed throughout. The midwives were really impressed and found it hard to judge when I was having a contraction as I was so calm.

In summary, I would wholeheartedly recommend Terri. Her support and words of encouragement meant that second time round it was a magical experience for our little family and even better than what I hoped it would be! I would also highly recommend hypnobirthing although practising the scripts and visualisations is vital.

A wonderful environment for learning and growing together with my partner.

Myself and my partner recently attended Terri’s hypnobirthing course at church farm on the Wirral.  We loved the course and were blown away by Terri’s knowledge and support. The course was beautifully put together, the atmosphere was calm, open, non-judgemental, and from entering the room I instantly felt at ease. A wonderful environment for learning and growing together with my partner. The group was small and personal which helped too, as we all developed a report with one another and felt comfortable to share experiences, concerns and questions. Terri delivered the content of the course brilliantly, I felt that there was nothing she couldn’t explain or help with and that no question was too big or too small.  We learnt everything from what is actually happening inside your body in pregnancy and in every part of labour and delivery- and how we as mothers could help our body’s to facilitate birthing our baby’s. Learned to trust our body’s to do this wonderful job we were so perfectly created to perform. We learned more about ourselves and unpicked what it was we wanted and didn’t want for our birth.  We practiced many beautiful scripts for letting go of fear and encouraging feelings of calm and relaxation, for use both in pregnancy and in birth. My partner was taught how to read scripts to me and different massage and stroking techniques in order for us to be able to practice relaxation at home, which was a part of the course I really loved as it made me feel so close to him, doing exactly what it was meant to do- flooding my body with oxytocin! I loved attending this course, and feel that it has hugely enhanced my pregnancy experience. It has encouraged my partner to feel he has more of an active roll in growing and birthing our baby, and generally made us feel that this is a journey we are on together. I now have a detailed birth plan which outlines all my wishes for birth (including things like delayed cord clamping, immediate and prolonged skin to skin etc which are all things I am only aware of because of the course). At first I felt really nervous to do a birth plan and worried about sharing it with my caregivers. But since attending Terri's course I have gained a voice that I feel confident to use in the presence of medical professionals. I now look forward to the birth of my baby, confident that my anxieties will be well under control and I will welcome my baby into the world feeling calm and ready to love and cherish her forever.  Thank you so much Terri you are a star!

The Hypnobirthing Course was Amazing.

We attended Terri's hypnobirthing course recently and it was amazing. I didn't know what to expect from it as I didn't know much about this technique for birth.
It gave us all of the tools and techniques we need to have our baby in the best way for mum, baby and me. It was really useful to find out things that the hospitals and professionals don't tell you. Gave us so much information and questions to ask to make our birth a positive experience for our new family. 
Also, the relaxation techniques and meditations you learn are really relaxing for mum and opened the birthing process up to me to feel more involved in the weeks leading up to the birth, so mum isn't left to feel like she's on her own.  The course is really relaxed and we didn't feel any problems with asking any questions we had for Terri.
Thank you so much and we can't recommend this course enough to new parents to be.

Terri is a Wonder!

Terri is a wonder - her classes are so positive and empowering. I went in feeling I had little choice or control over my pregnancy and birth experience but I came out feeling full of knowledge and empowered enough to make my own decisions about, and challenge, the interventions I was told I would need by consultants. I am now looking forward to the beautifully calm home birth I always hoped I would have and I feel equipped with the mental tools and techniques to birth my baby confidently and naturally. Terri has so much knowledge and experience, her classes have been a high point of my pregnancy and I feel so much more assured and knowledgeable about pregnancy, labour and beyond. I'd recommend her classes to any expectant parents, they have proven invaluable to me.

Highly Recommended!

Highly recommended, Terri has a wealth of knowledge that all expectant parents should have access to

Terri was Incredible

Blown away be the incredible support Terri has offered our Antenatal group. Very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you Terri, from the team here at Home-Start Wirral.

A great talk about wellness

Great to hear you speak at the event Terri, and I couldn’t agree more - a focus on wellness could have huge long term effects on society and health and wellbeing.

Fascinating and extremely knowledgable

I found Terri's talk so fascinating and found that it really helped me to understand my second pregnancy! I know that if I'm lucky enough to get pregnant again I will be taking her advice! 🥰

Terri gave a fantastic talk

Your talk was the perfect balance of reassuring, positive and educational. Your words really helped so many mums and expectant mums and I wish I'd have met you years ago. Thank you for all you do x

Highly Recommended !

Terri is very knowledgeable and she is passionate about what she does. I highly recommend her to any expectant mums who would like to treat themselves with a lovely massage.

Reassuring, Comforting and Passionate

I honestly wish I'd have met Terri before having my children. Her knowledge and nature surrounding the entire pregnancy and birthing journey is reassuring, comforting and passionate. Terri is a beautiful person and I have loved working on projects with her xx

Thank you so much

Thank you so much Terri @_time_uk for your talk at our World Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week Event. We hope to continue working with you to increase wellness within our community.

I love this woman!

What is not to love about Terri! The first time we met I hugged her! Terri is amazing at her job, she is incredibly knowledgeable about all things birth and breastfeeding and beyond! Terri is now the first person I go to for advice about any projects I’m working on as I can always rely on her advice and help. She gives so much to others she deserves this praise!

She's so good!

Terri at Time: Bump & Beyond is so knowledgeable about everything pregnancy and new baby, especially breastfeeding. She is kind and gives advice in a non-judgemental way! I always recommend Terri in my pregnancy yoga classes and hope if I have another pregnancy to be booked in for a pregnancy massage with Terri!

I'm now ready to embrace birth.

I had an amazing massage with Terri on Thursday and it really made me feel relaxed and ready to embrace birth. Terri is very knowledgeable, speaks slowly and ensures you understand everything. She made me feel comfortable, I would highly recommend her. Thanks so much xx

Most relaxed I've ever felt

I met Terri at a Mothercare event and had been looking for a good pregnancy massage. I am very fussy with massage and I train a lot so have plenty of knots. Terri was amazing! She paid attention to all the areas that really needed working into, she helped me to fully relax with a breathing technique and made me feel super comfortable. It's the most relaxed I've ever felt after a massage and I will definitely be going back. I also got lots of extra tips for throughout my pregnancy and birth which was a bonus! Highly recommended!!

Friendly, Cozy, Informative and Inspiring

I was honoured to be chosen by a friend to accompany her to the Hypnobirthing course with Time Bump & Beyond. From the minute we arrived for our sessions Terri put us at ease and made us feel so welcome. 
The room was so cosy and really calming with the beautiful fragrance of aromatherapy oils and a roaring fire warming the room. The sessions were broken down into easy-to-listen-to and take in sections. The resources Terri provides are top quality and she delivers the sessions with absolute professionalism but retains the warmth and kindness of a good friend. The way Terri teaches is inspiring, with so much positivity and passion. The new skills have led to a heightened sense of enlightenment and this will certainly change the course of my friends birthing experience and actually the way my friend will go forward as a new mother. 
I for one feel so empowered to support my friend and be an excellent birthing partner. Thank you so much, Terri, for the knowledge you have provided and thank you, Kate ,for choosing me to be there with you, to watch you grow with confidence has been so inspiring. 
I wish Terri every success and I would recommend the hypnobirthing course to anyone (not just birthing partners) supporting a pregnant mamma.

Amazing Hypnobirthing Course

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
