Sheela and Michael, September 2020

Did the course meet your expectations?

Yes - completely!

What did you most enjoy about the course?

Something I really valued about the course is how much the birth partners are involved, you really feel like you'll be going into labour and birth as a team, which is so important to us. Lindsey was so inclusive of my husband Michael and made us both feel capable, and empowered to have the birth we want. There is so much more I enjoyed about the course, including the techniques I learned, but for me, doing the course as a couple and feeling like we're in this together was the best thing about it.

What did you find most helpful about the course?

For me it was the combination of the science behind labour and birth (especially how the uterus works) teamed with the breathing and relaxation techniques to use in labour. Hypnobirthing really is so logical and so scientific, which is why it's so easy to believe it works. Once you understand what is happening to your body, and why it's important to produce the right hormones, it makes it easy to buy into the breathing and relaxation techniques, even if you're a complete novice to that kind of thing!

What could be better about the course?

I think the course worked fabulously well over Zoom, and this was of course necessary during Covid-19. I think personally I would have liked to do a course in person had the circumstances allowed it, and I'm pleased future couples will have the opportunity to do this.

What did you think of the course content and the resources provided?

The course notes were extremely useful both during sessions and to refer to in between, as was the Katherine Graves book. The course content itself seemed to strike a really good balance between listening to the theory behind Hypnobirthing, and having a go yourself with breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques. I found some of the scripts we practiced really relaxing, and some seemed to have a real psychological and physiological effect!

Would you recommend Bodhi Mama Hypnobirthing to a friend? Please explain why?

I would absolutely recommend Bodhi Mama Hypnobirthing to any friends who are expecting a little one! I think Hypnobirthing is extremely useful to expectant parents, if it's your first, second, fifth child; whether you're excited or anxious, and whether or not you're planning a vaginal delivery or a c-section birth. Every birth is important and every birth can be made positive and empowering experience, using hypnobirthing techniques. Bodhi Mama Founder and course leader Lindsey, is so knowledgeable and a passionate advocate for Hypnobirthing, which comes across in her delivery. She is also incredibly empathetic and has a calm, assured and unfailingly positive manner which made completing the course so easy and enjoyable. I would 100% recommend Bodhi Mama.

Any other feedback?

I wanted to try Hypnobirthing in this pregnancy (my second) after feeling out of control and experiencing a cascade of interventions in my first labour and birth. Although I wouldn't have called it traumatic, I felt things were out of my hands, and that I'd gone into making decisions blindly. My beautiful girl was born safely so I'm extremely lucky, but I knew I wanted a different experience this time.

 

Before doing the course I mostly wanted to feel calm and in control of my labour, and after doing the course I certainly feel like this is possible, using my BRAIN (do the course to see what I mean!)

 

Completing this course has had a huge impact on how I've approached preparing for my upcoming labour and birth. I feel empowered and able to ask questions of my midwives/doctors, and in doing so have been able to make my birth preferences personal to my needs. I'm also armed with a toolkit of techniques to keep me calm during labour, which is so important to produce that all important oxytocin!

 

As a result of doing this course, I feel prepared and look forward to labouring and bringing my baby into the world, with my birth partner by my side. Even if my birth pans out differently to how I would like, I feel that practicing Hypnobirthing will make it a calm, and positive experience.

 

Thank you Bodhi Mama!
