Ava’s Pain-free Birth Experience with HypnoBirthing Hub.
I purchased the HypnoBirthing Hub Course workbook and MP3s in 2016 when my first child was born. I just want to tell you first off – it helped tremendously! I am still amazed. While other women on either side of my room were screaming in agony (with epidurals!), I was fully relaxed, focused, and having a good time with my hospital staff – even still able to laugh and smile between contractions. I had no pain relief because I didn’t even need it! I was entirely comfortable through the whole experience. WOW!
I am 8 months pregnant again and ready to start getting back into the breathing and other techniques. I can’t wait for such an amazing birthing experience again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Home Birth without Fear or Anxiety, with HypnoBirthing Hub
For a first time labour it was relatively quick and super easy – 7 hours, and my Hypnobirthing Hub techniques really helped me manage emotionally and physically for the whole of the labour. I just knew what to do! Oscar was born at home, in a birth pool and he was born in his membranes (and I had no tears!! Which I was most scared of!)
So just to say a big thank you for your help in enabling myself and my husband to have an amazing, enjoyable birth, one that’ll I’ll look back on fondly forever.
Second Time Mother Has a Better Birth this time with HypnoBirthing
I first would like to say THANK YOU for the wonderful experience I have had thus far with the home study course! I am due with my second child on June 21st and I am so excited to use what I have learned for my upcoming birth! I know this time will be different, I am prepared now mentally and physically this time around. I am certain of a better birthing time.
Induction needed, HypnoBirthing Hub helped with Pain-relief
Hi, I purchased your full audio course back in 2019 when I had my previous child. I’m about to have my next (induction on Monday, but I’m already feeling contractions, so I may go naturally sooner) and was setting up my phone with the tracks. They helped so much last time! I did an induced birth (for high risk reasons) with no pain meds! It was incredible. The hypnosis for anesthesia track made a massive difference and I got through even an induction without pain relief. I am very pleased with my birth and this course.
An Easy, Natural, Pain-free and Empowered Birth Experience
I just wanted to tell you – thank you so much! I gave birth to my first child, a baby girl, almost four months ago now. I started looking into Hypnobirthing Hub after a friend of mine, who is a L&D nurse, suggested it. I found your website, and it was completely life changing. I was so confident about going into labor, and my husband was too. This course taught us everything we needed to be prepared for labor and delivery. And I loved that it explained things so well that my husband was able to understand and feel like he was truly a part of our daughters’ birth because he knew exactly what was going on, and the support I needed.
In the middle of the night on the day I was supposed to be induced, my water broke at home. From that time, it was only 4 hours before my baby girl was born. Call me crazy, but I was almost a little bit sad that I didn’t have a longer time to use all of the things I had learned during this course! I was so prepared to ride out my labor experience!
Your techniques were wonderful. I was so relaxed, confident, and I was completely in awe of how in touch I was with my body, and the incredible work it was doing to birth my baby. I feel a bit like an outcast because I felt like the “pain” of labor was just a bit uncomfortable, which everyone rolls their eyes at me.
The whole time, I could feel what my body was trying to accomplish, and I was breathing my way through it. I was completely in my own head during the birth, but my mom was in the room with me, and she said that the doctors and nurses were standing around me, taking my cues for when they needed to assist. I even got the chance to assist in the actual delivery of my baby. That day was one of the best in my life, and- I never thought I would ever say this- but I truly cannot wait to experience the joy and beauty of a natural childbirth again! Thank you so, so much!
Kayla said ‘There was no pain, only intense sensations’
I had an awesome experience and I’m happy to share! I originally heard about HypnoBirthing Hub from a mutual acquaintance way before I was even considering pregnancy. Then when I got pregnant I reached out to a local hypnotherapist and joined her course. I hated it because none of the meetings were constructive and I didn’t feel like I was ‘getting it’. I found your course online and started listening to the tracks. I had an easier time visualizing and focusing on the relaxation. I listened to your tracks on repeat and felt more and more confident.
Two days after my due date I did the belly dance and my water broke. I was excited and nervous at the same time. Would my weeks of practice pay off? Would it work? Would my labor and delivery be relaxed and pain free? I called the doctor to let them know that my water broke and that I was experiencing mild menstrual aches that come and go. I asked the nurse to tell me what a contraction feels like and she told me that it would be painful and I ‘would know’.
I ate something, cleaned my house and took a shower. It got more intense and I plugged in my iPod and starting listening to my birthing day tracks and swaying in front of the mirror. After about an hour, things got even more intense and I sat on a big ball and leaned forward onto my bed. I made sure to keep hydrated and focused. There was no pain, just very intense ‘sensations’. There’s no other way to describe it!
After a couple of hours I threw up and my husband realized that I was very far along and he urged me to get in the car so that we could go to the hospital. I kept responding that I’m not in any pain and therefore I can’t possibly be far along yet. We finally compromised that I would go to the doctor. She checked me and confirmed that I was 7cm dilated! I went straight to the hospital and an hour later my doctor arrived to deliver my beautiful, healthy, 8.7lbs Girl.
The whole labor lasted 6 hours. I felt so good that I wanted to go home the minute after I delivered and the nurses were shocked. I felt so incredible and empowered. I am happy to share my story with people who have experienced the same. When I share it with friends and family no one believes me. I also want to note that my baby who is now 4 months old rarely cries and is generally very happy. I think I would attribute it to the relaxed labor and delivery we had.
Thanks for an incredible course. I can’t wait to use it again.
Positive C-Section with Elena Feeling Calm and Confident
I’m delighted to say that our little girl Tilly arrived safely on 22 June.
I was induced because of high blood pressure and we actually ended up with a c section because of a possible infection but it was all v calm and we were v well looked after so I look back on the whole experience positively.
I listened to my HypnoBirthing Hub tracks throughout the induction process and felt incredibly calm, including during the c section. Your birth plan and what to expect during a section was absolutely invaluable and I credit my calmness to having a good understanding of what was involved, so thank you!
Tilly a is a little dream boat. I think easy birth is an easy baby! Breastfeeding is going well and she’s sleeping pretty well so no complaints at all!
I’ll be pointing any pregnant friends in the direction of your HypnoBirthing Hub Course – so useful.
Hypnobirthing dream birth after traumatic first birth
“After a really terrible experience with my daughter’s birth, I was determined to find a different way when I got pregnant this time. My biggest fear came for the old memories, which still gave me nightmares, at times. I felt sure that the same thing would happen again. When I did the Hypnobirthing Hub Home Course, there were two things which really stood out for me.
First was that I can now see why and when things started to go wrong the last time. If only I had known all of this the first time around. Second, the “Fear Release” exercise made so much difference; they were really powerful. I actually felt the bad memories leave my mind. It did feel a bit surreal. I was able to completely let go of them and they didn’t come back, at all.
The nightmares also stopped. And with all the other techniques that I had learned, I spent the rest of my pregnancy looking forward to the birth and not dreading it. I think the key thing for me was being completely honest with myself about how I was really feeling about the birth, and not just pushing it all deep down. I know that if I buried it, it would just come back on the day.
I had a wonderful birth. Baby Asha was born peacefully and easily in the hospital after six hours of labour. None of the old fears came back and I was so pleased how calm, focused, and relaxed I was. I wish every woman around the world had access to these techniques. Thanks so much. I can’t begin to thank you for the key role you played in our birth”.
Wonderful easy and inspiring Hypnobirthing Hub birth
“After a day of mild twinges, I called the hospital to let them know I might be coming later to have my baby. Whilst chatting with the midwife, I had a few more twinges and she said I should come in.
After a phone call to my husband, he made a mad dash home, falling through the front door. He was panicking a bit and I was the calm one. So at the hospital, I was 4 cm, and the ‘twinges’ were real surges, but they just felt like nothing more than twinges.
However, every time I had a contraction, all I kept thinking about was how I was getting closer and closer to meeting my baby. I kept visualising my older daughter on the shore in my special place, which was a beautiful sandy island holding a baby, and with every surge, I would ride the crest of the wave. It was taking me closer and closer to the two of them.
My husband was amazing with the light touch massage and the prompts; I could actually feel the rush of endorphins through my body. It left me feeling spacey, but ultimately relaxed. The birth was WONDERFUL!! I loved every second of the experience. I made very little noise; I didn’t need to, as I wasn’t in pain at all. As soon as she was born, I said ‘I want another one’; I didn’t want to stop, I was enjoying it all so much!! I can’t thank you enough. I have recommended your course to EVERY pregnant women I have met!”
Hitting the gym soon after an easy Hypnobirth
“I have been meaning to email you to say a massive thank you. My husband and I did the course in Sydney and I gave birth three weeks ago…. my waters released on Sunday morning, we ended up staying at home relaxing until 6pm. We got to the hospital and midwives tried to offer pethidine and an epidural however strongly declined with Andrew’s support.
The pressure got more intense by 2am but then quickly delivered a baby boy at 2.47am with no pain relief. I had no tears and no stitches were needed. After feeding the bub for almost an hour, I was able to jump in the shower with no assistance.
The following days were also amazing as I continually got offers for pain relief but really didn’t need it. Midwives were always surprised when I declined pain relief during my stay. I am back at the gym already and am so thankful for Hypnobirthing eliminating all the fear I had. Next baby we will definitely do a refresher ?
Hypnobirthing helps even when an Induction is medically needed
I listening to the Audio book version of your course, I found it great when I got frightened by birth, the cd helped me relax and not see birth as a big deal. Even towards the end I got great sleep listening to the book made me so relaxed and it made my birth partner fall asleep.
I was due my baby the 8th Feb, I had pregnancy diabetes and my maternity hospital had a policy of not going over a week. I chatted with my consultant and we agreed on going 10 days over. On the 18th Feb no signs at all with my lil man coming, he was too cosy.
I got a tampon process (prostaglandin) at around 9am, me and my partner walked up and down the stairs all around the grounds and finally started around 6pm.
I owed my friend and my partner doing the surge breathing and reminding me of the beach I was able to relax at the contractions and picture myself in a place I felt most relaxed in Greece on a beach.
But with inductions, I remembered the book said the contractions were artificially painful and they were! I asked for the epidural and felt ok about it, as I know this was not normal labour.
I was ready I could feel the contractions very slightly a nurse came in and said they weren’t strong enough that I’d need a drip but I was adamant not to so, I worked with the contractions 5 mins apart the midwives were so great I did all my breathing and pushing perfect I didn’t miss one push 40 mins later with a bit of help from suction my beautiful baby boy Jacob John arrived at 12.20pm
It wasn’t my plan to birth like this, but your Hypnobirthing Hub book had me going in with an open mind. I wouldn’t change any of my wonderful experience from pregnancy to birth.
Easy quick and pain free natural twin birth
“Thanks so much for all the Hypnobirthing Hub information. The birth of our twin girls was so easy and completely natural! We arrived at the hospital 7cm dilated, midwives couldn’t believe it. I was so comfortable I could even walk in. Thanks again!”

Quick, confident and relaxed Hypnobirthing
“I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful Hypnobirthing Hub course. I had a beautiful, amazing birth experience. It gave me much more confidence in myself and as a mother!I was so relaxed and calm I has no idea how far along I was and gave birth 27 mins after arriving at hospital with absolutely no intervention of any kind, not even a VE! It was pure and perfect. Thank you from me and my very happy baby.”
Planned Hypnobirthing Hub Caesarean births are positive and empowering
“I decided to be pro-active and take control of my birthing experience. Accepting that I had to have a caesarean this time around didn’t mean that I had to leave all the decisions in the hands of the doctors. I was actually going to make this happen!
Everyone had been briefed as to what was in my birth plan and how I was going to contribute. “Okay, are you ready, here come the head and the shoulders, now reach down.” I reached down and linked my thumb and fingers around my baby’s shoulders and lifted him onto my chest. The nurse had removed my hospital gown and my baby and I lay together (skin touching) for the first time. He was so soft and flexible and curled straight back into a little ball. As he lay on my chest, the warmth in my heart was unbelievable, everything seemed so surreal and wonderful!
For the woman that are now having caesarean births or other types of interventions without choice, it is important that they too know they can still take control of their situation and feel a part of ‘bringing their baby into the world’.
