Everyone is now talking about Hypnobirthing, because Kate Middleton is practicing it for the upcoming birth of her baby(future heir of Britain) in July 2013. Kate is not only hoping for a calm and gentle birth, but she is planning for it by learning the skills of self hypnosis, Teaching her body how to get into a deep state of relaxation, practicing breathing techniques, and visualisation skills.


The Wise Hippo Program is a 10 hour Hypnobirthing course for pregnant couples wishing to learn how to give birth naturally. Fathers learn how to be an effective support person to their partner during labour and couples are taught the importance of skin to skin bonding. Many Hypnobirthing Mums choose to have a Waterbirth, and so in this safe warm and secure environment, babies are being born calmly and gently, the way nature intended. Parents bond with their baby and a happy family has been created.


Two weeks before Kate and Williams pregnancy announcement, my daughter living in the UK, sent the DVD 'Hypnobirthing and me' to Kate's Mother. This DVD contains 4 beautiful Hypnobirths and 3 of them are waterbirths. I am sure this DVD would have influenced Kate's birthing choices.

Kate looked absolutely radiant less than 24 hours after the natural birth of her son Prince George.

Prince William, the proud father stayed overnight at the hospital with his new family ensuring a wonderful family bonding time.
Kate certainly has the calm and relaxed appearance of a Hypnobirthing mum.

When we birth our babies with calmness and love using Hypnobirthing
we are giving them the foundational security of feeling
welcomed and loved throughout life.

For mothers this calm confident way of opening and breathing a baby into the world  brings empowerment extraordinaire.

 For birth partners and fathers, active participation creates an extreme loving bond that begins before birth and lasts for a lifetime.

 Let me show you how you can also achieve an amazing birth experience. 

This has to be the best and most natural way to birth whether you decide to have your baby in the hospital or at home.
