I was fortunate to come across Amy as her hypnobirthing course was recommended to me along with her pre and post natal yoga classes. My partner and I have completed the hypnobirthing course and as it's our first baby, I can honestly say it has transformed our perspectives on birth and helped reduce any fear/anxiety about giving birth, to feeling calm and confident and excited at the prospect of meeting our baby. Amy is very welcoming, knowledgeable and open, she gives you lots of information and resources that you can refer to as part of your preparation for birth, understanding your rights, the role of your birth partner, what happens to your body in labour and the stages of labour, so much to mention and most helpful. I feel like I have a good understanding now of what could happen and birthing options, helping me to reflect on birth plan preferences. I have recently started attending the antenatal yoga classes with Amy which are great too and help you with birthing positions, breathing techniques and all round relaxation. I cannot recommend Amy enough, thank you Amy!

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Amy for providing me with knowledge and support during this pregnancy.

If anyone is looking to do a Hypnobirthing course I would 100% recommend! It’s been invaluable and I wish I had done it before I had Ruby. It’s not only about breathing and mindset but information on your rights and advocacy and how your birth partner can best support you. Amy is just lovely and down to earth with lots of knowledge and resources she can direct you to.

She also runs a pre and post natal yoga class in Banbury and Brackley.which I have booked for the next course from next week.

Not only does she run the above but she encourages mamas to socialise and provides opportunities for this which is so important. So yea, hurray for Amy, what a ledge!

Hi Amy hope you're well?! Just to let you know H was born yesterday via c section! 😍 I didn't get chance to experience labour or the natural birth that I'd hoped for but it was still very much the perfect calm positive birthing environment that we had wanted and everything you taught us in hypnobirthing helped to make it so wonderful. I never in a million years thought I'd be able to be so calm and confident in any birth situation let alone a c section so thank you so so much 😍😍 xx

This is my first pregnancy and I wanted to make sure I was healthy and as active as I could be. I came across Amy's class and felt nervous to begin with, however I need not to worry as Amy was so kind and welcoming. I have loved coming to Prenatal Yoga every week and meeting all the mums-to-be.


Alongside the Prenatal Yoga, I saw Amy ran a Hypnobirthing class. I cannot recommend this enough and if you are pregnant, sign up immediately!


Before the class, I was really apprehensive, worried and scared about labour. I wanted every pain killer available and would probably go with whatever the midwives tell me to do. Since we did the class, I feel so empowered, positive and excited to give birth. And no, Amy didn't wave a magic wand to cure my anxieties but she taught us how to be in control, embrace our inner strength and use the different techniques to ensure we have a relaxed and calm labour/birth.


I'm so glad my partner and I did the course!

I have recently taken Amy’s hypnobirthing course, and after going in feeling totally clueless and anxious about giving birth, I have come out feeling prepared, calm, positive and actually a bit excited about giving birth to my first child. Amy is really knowledgeable about child birth and I felt really at ease in her classes. She’s a great teacher.

 

I also have been taking part in her pregnancy yoga classes weekly which I feel goes hand in hand with the course in helping to prepare mind and body for birth, as well as meeting other parents to be. I would thoroughly recommend Amy’s hypnobirthing and yoga classes!

 

We had a great time and she is also on hand afterwards and a point of contact running up to the birth as well which is amazing.

 

Thankyou Amy!

As a first time mum I wanted to be as prepared as I could be for labour. I joined Amy’s Hypnobirthing classes over zoom whilst in lockdown and it was the best thing I did! I had a tricky labour in the end (babies head to the side) but managed to still give birth the way I wanted which was to have only gas and air and the pool for pain relief! I can’t thank Amy enough for helping me prepare and I’m sure Hypnobirthing is how I managed to stick to my birthing plan. Thank you Amy!

Hayley and Scott April 2021

Highly recommend Amy's hypnobirthing and yoga sessions. I did both (via zoom due to lockdown restrictions) and am so glad I did! I knew I would be induced and Amy ensured I had all the knowledge I needed to go in feeling ready and calm. My husband and I really enjoyed the sessions and the hypnobirthing techniques really helped during labour. I was previously anxious but came away from the sessions feeling relaxed and prepared. My labour went really well and it's something I look back on really positively! Thank you Amy!

Rowena and Charles January 2021

As first time parents-to-be we have really enjoyed our Hypnobirthing sessions with Amy. Really informative, lots of opportunities to share thoughts and ask questions, practical hints and tips and have come away feeling a lot more prepared. We have been able to rethink our options for birth and gained a lot of confidence in knowing what we want and how to prepare. Feeling a lot more calm, positive and relaxed.

JoJo and Ant, January 2021

I contacted Amy about hypnobirthing as I was due in February with my first baby and I was determined to have a good, positive experience as I was always hearing people’s “horror” stories of birth.

We did a few sessions over December and January via zoom due to lockdown but I felt I still got plenty from the zoom calls and benefited hugely from Amy’s expertise. Amy has a very relaxed but informative way of teaching and I felt like I could message her in between sessions to ask questions (which I did).

When it came to my labour and birth I went fully equipped, both mentally and physically, with all the tools I needed to make my experience a positive one. I felt excited and well-informed about what was happening at every stage thanks to what I had learnt with Amy. I was induced and had a very quick labour and birth with little time in between to think but the things I made happen during it were all down to what I had learnt and I came away feeling like superwoman! I would highly recommend hypnobirthing for any expectant mother and have already recommended the course with Amy to a few friends. I will definitely be returning for my second!
