Post the arrival of our gorgeous daughter, I am still amazed that my labor was actually a pleasant and enjoyable experience. After delivery of my first two children I was certain this was not achievable for me.
I can’t thank Erin enough for being so accommodating in the short time that I had to learn the technique after obtaining information on HypnoBirthing so late in my pregnancy. Without her being so accommodating and flexible our experience could never have been possible. In addition, the ongoing support after completion of the course was well beyond what I could have expected and certainly invaluable in the smooth arrival of our baby girl.
My husband was supportive of the program but certainly sceptical. Post being there and witnessing the birth of our third child he is definitely no longer a sceptic but amazed at how different the experience was from the arrival of our other children.
Even upon departure to hospital I was not confident that I was in enough pain to qualify going to hospital but went only because I had meconium in my waters. Upon arrival at the hospital I was continually asked if I had any pain with everyone doubtful this was the real thing. Much to their and my own dismay within 15 minutes of arriving at the hospital I was advised the baby was coming and it was time to push. I couldn’t believe it!! After receiving no gas, no drugs of any kind and only minor discomfort our baby girl was here. After my first two long painful deliveries I still can’t believe how easy it was.
My recovery has also been amazing. The day and weeks after giving birth I have felt completely normal with no discomfort like I had after arrival of our other children. I only wish I had the benefit of having this knowledge and assistance for delivery of my first two children.
I couldn’t speak highly enough of HypnoBirthing and Erin in presenting this course. To be able to have such a beautiful and pleasant birthing experience really has been life changing for me.

Erin’s knowledge in the area, and her calm approachable manner taught me all the skills I needed for the best birth possible and was the only prenatal class we needed. It showed me birth was nothing to fear, and I can now look back to my birth as one of the most positive experiences of our lives.
I also found that Erin was able to assist me so much during my pregnancy and post birth with her Naturopathic assistance and advice. Thank you Erin!

Erin was always supportive and encouraging and the classes were extremely informative. Every class we would learn different aspects about the birthing process and the classes were always fun and interactive.
By the end of the classes I felt prepared, empowered and confident about what my body as a woman was naturally designed to do. Additionally, Erin as a naturopath was a wealth of knowledge and was able to provide information on other pregnancy related information I wanted to know about like breast-feeding support.
I had a completely natural drug free birth with no tearing and I have to say that the pain was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be which I put down to the knowledge and techniques I learnt with HypnoBirthing.
If you’ve had a traumatic birthing experience or if you have the slightest worry about giving birth I cannot speak more highly of Erin and her hypno-birthing classes.
