The Wise Hippo birthing programme is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. 

Hypnobirthing teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.  You will learn to call upon your body's own natural relaxant therefore lessening or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.  When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same will-designed manner that it does with all other creatures. 

If you are pregnant and looking for a wonderful, exciting, relaxing way to prepare for the birth of you baby these classes are for you!

You will be full of awe and excitement as you view hypnobirthing films showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good humor as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome.  

The Wise Hippo birthing programme teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles

The Wise Hippo birthing programme will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. You will always be fully aware and in control, but profoundly relaxed.
