Thank you so much for your help & guidance. we've thoroughly enjoyed the HypnoBirthing course & are very excited & looking forward to our special birthing experience.
I just want to say a huge thankyou to Theresa Mounsey for today … I have had a needle phobia as far back as I can remember,causing me to have panic attacks, from the day I discovered I waspregnant I have been so stressed and feeling guilty as I physically couldn't have my blood tests done! So … at 34 weeks pregnant (betterlate than never) Theresa offered to do my bloods for me using the HypnoBirthing methods and it worked! I was aware of everything that was going on around me but I felt so calm and relaxed that I just let it happen. I still can't believe I've had them done, I feel very happy like a huge weight has been lifted from me and I feel confident knowing that I would be able to do it again if the time came! I would recommend HypnoBirthing to any pregnant lady and I'm now even more excited about attending the rest of my HypnoBirthing classes and the birth experience when the time comes for my baby to arrive because for me it really works!

I wanted to share a brief testimony with you regarding our experience of Mongan Method Hypnobirthing with Theresa.We got in touch at around the 34 week mark of my second pregnancy. It took this long for me to realise just how nervous I was second time around and that after some homework, Hypnobirthing might help to alleviate some of the deep rooted fears we had as a result of the birth of our daughter 2 and a half years ago. My first labour was long and tiring. I reached fully dilated after many hours and was encouraged to start pushing, even though I had no urge to. After 4 hours of pushing and getting nowhere, it was decided that things needed augmenting & I was given syntocinon and sent through to theatre in a hurry where they attempted forceps and finally had to perform an emergency C-section. So many things went wrong (of which I wont burden you with – as that is not the point) however, needless to say, me, my husband and our daughter were all significantly traumatisedmy the experience. I spent a good year having flashbacks and crying. I felt so cheated out of a natural birth and felt like a failure. I suffered depression (hardly surprising) and found it very difficult to cope with my baby daughter who was extremely fussy and regularly poorly.We always knew we'd have another baby and I didn't want to let what had happened before stop us. As my consultant aptly put it – ‘for some women, it's like an itch they have to scratch' – and he was right. I HAD to have a natural birth. I knew I could do it – it's what my body was designed for after all. I wanted to experience that right of passage as a woman and know what it was like to give birth to my baby.After speaking to a friend (a midwife) she thought HypnoBirthing using the Mongan Method would really help. So I did some research and luckily found The Natural Birthing Company who were local and had a course starting the following week. After the first phone call with Theresa, I instantly felt at ease and knew this was the right thing to do. The course was excellent; relaxing and informative. It empowered us both and every week we walked away feeling like our natural birth was inevitable. The day before my due date my contractions (surges) began gently & gradually mid morning – by late afternoon we packed our little girl off to Granny's. By 7pm we'd had some dinner and watched our favourite comedy DVD (all the while having very intense contractions – sat on a birth ball) – using the breathing and relaxation techniques, it was all totally bearable. By about 8pm I wanted to get in the bath and carried on with the relaxation and breathing. I could feel the intensity increasing, but the ‘surge breathing' actually felt good.My husband was timing the surges and they quickly went from 5 to 4 to 3 to 2 to 1 minute apart and we're lasting 2-3 mins. As we decided to get ready to go the labour suite, my waters broke and it was a whole new ball game.The pressure and intensity increased and I instantly felt ‘pushy' – every contraction felt like progress. I could ‘see' & feel my baby moving further and further down. It was incredible. We were going nowhere and I asked my husband to call for an ambulance. The paramedics arrived followed by a midwife and after a little while (and I'll admit – some gas and air) our baby boy emerged on my own bed!! I never had to forcefully push…my body did all the work and I just followed its lead. It was the most incredible experience of my life. I can't say it didn't ‘hurt', but I wouldn't describe it as ‘pain' either. It was powerful and intense and certainly made me ‘moo', but it wasn't frightening at any point – even considering the fact that he arrived quickly at home and I was classed as ‘high risk' having had a C-Section before. So a natural intervention and drug free VBAC homebirth IS possible!!! I did it! I get such a buzz from thinking about what happened. It was totally incredible. I'm so proud of what we achieved – me, my husband and our baby. He is such a calm and easy going baby. He cries to be fed and that is it. I am convinced that Hypnobirthing helped us have the birth we wanted. I would recommend it to everyone.
Thank you so much Theresa and Marie Mongan.
Lots of love, Fiona, Ben & baby Oscar x XxXx Fiona – Papplewick
After meeting Jayne and Theresa at a Mothercare event I dragged my husband along for a taster event and as a result we signed up for hypnobirthing and then a practical parenting course.The skills learnt and the advice given to us during the both courses helped us to feel more prepared and confident for the birth of baby Jack. I would highly recommend both courses to anyone expecting a bundle of joy. We found that Hypnobirthing was key in keeping me calm during labour and stopped my husband feeling like a spare part in the delivery room by giving him a key role involving back massage and reciting set scripts to aid relaxation. The courses are held in a calm, peaceful and welcoming environment with small classes and homemade cake to give that personal touch

I'd like to share with you a testimony of my experience with the natural birthing company. I have always been fearful of giving birth to the point where before I got pregnant, I always thought I'd rather have a caesarian. However when I got pregnant with my first child, I started to think more deeply about this. The recovery time after a caesarian whilst trying to look after a baby suddenly didn't seem so appealing. My next thought was birthing with the maximum amount of pain relief I could get! However something didn't feel right to me personally about this and I was worried about the effects of some of the pain relief on baby. Whilst at a routine scan I saw a leaflet from the natural birthing company and it instinctively appealed to me, I went home and did some research. The whole idea that the concept of fear towards child birth makes you more tense and that this tension in your muscles makes child birth more difficult, made so much sense to me. I realied it was my fear of child birth that was the problem. I contacted the natural birthing compnay in the hope that they could help me with this fear. I have now completed the course and I can honestly say my fear of child birth has completely dissipated, in fact I'm very much looking forward to the whole birthing experience. The course helped me to relax during my pregnancy and i feel amazing after my partner and I have practiced the techniques we have learnt. The course was very informative and Theresa puts you at ease and makes you feel very welcome. I would recommend this course to anyone, it's worth evry penny. Thank-You for all your help Theresa.

I have just completed a five week HypnoBirthing course and I enjoyed every aspect of it. I feel more confident about what will be my second birth and it has opened my eyes to how easy it should and can be. I discovered our baby was breeched before my last class and Theresa and I managed to turn our baby with a single hypnosis session. This I find amazing and can't believe how easy it was! Thank you Theresa for your help and support I'm looking forward to a relaxed and natural birth.
Jenny has since had a baby boy in the pool with NO pain relief!!
