Do your research!

I honestly cannot emphasise this more - knowledge is power!

Doing your own research and honing in on the topics you want to focus on, and learn more about, will be one of the most empowering things you can do in preparation for your birth. We go over this a lot in the course, mostly to make you feel like it's ok to prepare to this level for one of the most important events in your life. Yes, I know, it seems crazy that you feel like you shouldn't be this 'in the know'. Midwives are incredible and you'll likely fall in love with yours on the day you give birth, so let's help them out by being informed and talking their language a little more.

We as hypnobirthing teachers are here to guide you and signpost you to where you can find this information and great news, there's so much wonderful information out there.
