Sophie guided my wife and myself through our birth using hypnobirthing and it was the most amazing experience. Compared to a conventional birth the whole experience was so relaxing, the midwife’s barely knew my wife was in labour. Sophie was an excellent coach, so calm and measured. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the whole subject and no question was to much trouble to answer. A big thank you to both Sophie and her husband Gordon, who makes an excellent coffee. Would recommend the programme to anyone.
