Hello and welcome to Oldham Hypnobirthing, and congratulations on your pregnancy! Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, I'm here to help no matter what "kind" of birth you are planning (if you've thought that far ahead already).
My name is Alison and I'm a mummy of two beautiful hypnobirthed babies. I'm a full time hypnobirthing teacher and I'm dedicated to helping the women of Oldham and the surrounding areas have more positive birth experiences.
I passionately believe that women should feel in control and empowered during pregnancy, labour and birth.
I believe that all women deserve and should have a positive birth experience. Please note that is different from achieving your perfect birth, and should happen regardless of whether you achieve YOUR perfect birth (whatever that may mean to you). I also believe that all women and their babies should be treated with respect and dignity during pregnancy, labour and birth.
In order to help you achieve a positive experience, I will teach you and your birth partner all about the labour and birth experience. Empowering you to make the right choices and decisions for you and your baby, and enabling you to have the right birth on the day for you and your baby.
When you understand what is happening, don't fight against your body, use your intuition and instincts you are much more likely to have a positive birth experience, no matter whether you achieve your "perfect" birth or whether your baby's birth takes a different course.
Our courses are perfect whether you're a first or second (or third etc) time mum, whether you want a natural birth or c-section, whether you think you'll want an intervention free/un-medicated birth or not, water birth or not, and where ever you're planning to birth at home, birthing centre or hospital.
We're here to support all choices and all variations of birth, all we want is that you make INFORMED choices in order to make the right decisions for you and your baby. We know that all kinds of birth happen, and we believe that no one option is better than another, if you have made CHOICES based on impartial advice and information.
