Birth doesn't always go the way we want to, which can be a hard pill to swallow. You can feel like you failed yourself, your baby, even your partner. Your body didn't do what it is designed to do. First of all, if you feel that way, I would like to tell you didn't fail, you did your best in the situation and you need to forgive yourself that things didn't go like planned. Secondly, you are not alone mum. Let me share my story and how hypnobirthing can help you too.
wanted to have a home birth, I ended up giving birth at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital. Not because something was wrong, because I wanted to. I could have beaten myself up for not having my home birth, for not sticking to my plan, for doing what I thought what was initially right.
Because I fell in between shifts I had a total of 7 midwives from the start of my home birth until the afternoon I left the hospital. The midwife I had during birth, I didn't really like but that was okay she still did a good job and let me do mine. Even though the birth wasn't perfect, I had a lovely water birth, a 9lb 2oz healthy little girl and my health still intact too. I was respected by everyone, and they let me be the captain of the ship, in other words, my birth and body. And because of this, I now feel I had a positive birth experience.
It is sometimes hard to believe in yourself, especially if your birth didn't go like you wanted it to go. That is why the course I teach is so valuable. We do a fear release exercise, which you can do as often as you need at home after the course, to help you let go of all negatives you have acquired in life. Whether this is from negatives stories from others, or yourself.
In the Birthing Goddess Training will learn:
- To give birth without tension and fear
- Feel in control
- Understand labour pain and how will learn you can cope
- Achieve an empowering experience that you will look back on with pride and pleasure- Deeply connect with your baby, your partner and fully embrace your strength as the strong female that you know you are.
And much, much, more!
As a bonus I also designed the beautiful Birthing Goddess MP3 to help you release those inner struggles and get ready for your next birth.

I hope this blog was helpful and will get you started to heal your birth + having you look forward to your next birth!
