    Episode 39 - A Quick, Positive Birth Story

    Episode 39 - A Quick, Positive Birth Story

    First episode of 2022!


    I spoke to listener Jo, all about her two birth experiences. Her first left her feeling scared about going through labour again, that was until she discovered hypnobirthing. She went on to have a very calm, positive birth with her second child.


     


    Thank you so much to Jo for sharing her story with me.

    Episode 34 - Predicted Baby Weight - What impact can this have?

    Today's episode is a little impromptu and is all about the prediction of your baby's weight. How can this affect your labour plans? And how can you navigate your way through this?


    AS ALWAYS - please remember I am not medically qualified. Please always ask your caregivers lots of questions and ask them for any risks and what that specifically means for you. We are all individuals and so our level of risk will be different.

Just what I needed

Thank you Claire! Your podcast has given me some space and time to reflect on birth as a journey. I’ve been told that a c-section might be a safer option for our baby and your podcasts on this subject matter really helped me feel better when I was feeling lost and out of control. I now feel reassured I can still use hypnobirthing whatever my birth looks like! So thanks!

Helping cure my fear of birth!

I’ve been fearful of birth for as long as I can remember but this podcast is helping me overcome my fear and actually feel excited, confident and empowered about giving birth!! Thank you for such an incredible resource!

Incredibly helpful

I’ve been listening since I was 14 weeks pregnant (now 34) and I am so thankful for this podcast. I am now really looking forward to birth, which I never would have imagined in a million years!
