Some kind words …
How do parents find me??Well, midwives recommend me…plus;
Word of mouth. Thank you everyone. Word of mouth is priceless. It really is worth all the tea in China!!! Plus I am so delighted that so many of you come from far and wide to join my classes. Also I have parents coming back for their second and third babies. Love keeping it in the family!
Read what all these HypnoBirthing® couples and their Midwives have said.
Wanted to email you to share our very happy news with you!!
At 2.38pm on 29th May 2016 I birthed our beautiful baby boy into the world – Rowan Toby Trainor, 8lb 2.5oz,
We were at home in our birthing pool. It was the most wonderful, incredible experience! Andy was completely wonderful and was my rock throughout, the midwives were impressed with how we worked together throughout the experience. We all loved the hypnobirthing techniques, I stayed completely calm and focused throughout.
My body did everything it was meant to and I just remained relaxed.
I cannot thank you enough for everything you taught us, I feel blessed to have had such a wonderful birth! I want to do it again already!!!
Leah & Andy xx
Massive congratulations on having the dream birth of your little boy.
My heart did a somersault and a little dance when I read your e-mail.
I am so happy for both of you. Annie xxx
Rowan has arrived!!
Just a quick email to let you know that our little hypnobirthing baby, Polly Annabelle Larkham, was born on Monday at 12.44 at the consultant led unit in Telford.
Although we didn’t quite get to have the uneventful home birth we had wanted, we could not have done it without hypnobirthing.
We did have a lovely experience at home for the initial labour, using the birthing pool, forest sounds cd and fairy lights. Tom was absolutely amazing getting me through the surges.
Hospital was the last thing we wanted (or expected), but the whole team was fantastic, even convincing the doctors that we didn’t need a caesarian!
Polly is delightful and is a really calm, happy baby.
Thank you ever-so-much, and here are some pictures of lovely Polly.

Lots and lots of congratulations on the safe arrival of your beautiful daughter.
I am thrilled for you both….and very proud of Team Ellie for remaining calm in spite of how events unfolded. Tom you are fab for being Ellie’s rock. Ellie, so happy that you did experience the peace and harmony at having some part of your labour at home. Polly had the right birth at the right time, and she will be a calm baby due to all your relaxation during your pregnancy. Annie xx
Polly has arrived!

I have some wonderful news! On the 8th Feb at 6.15am we welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. I enjoyed a calm, controlled, natural birth, thanks to all your guidance, and Chris was a wonderful support with my breathing throughout, keeping me focused and positive. Having her put in my arms after a natural delivery was just magical!
We have called her Mina Elizabeth and she’s simply perfect!
Thanks so much Annie,
Team Pook xx
Can’t stop smiling!! Annie xx
Mina is here.
I just wanted to email you and let you know that Tom and I had a beautiful baby boy on Saturday.
Matthew Alexander Clarke was born at 22:37 on Saturday 30 Jan weighing 7lb 2 oz
Thank you so much for all our sessions, I believe that helped me to stay calm throughout the whole day on Saturday and I feel happy that Matthew was born naturally. I did use gas and air for my second stage, but that was right for me at the time due to the dramatic speed of my labour.
With love from,
Fay and Tom Clarke x
Matthew is beautiful and looks so chilled out and calm. All your hard work has definitely paid off. Fay, I really am so proud of you and Tom.
Love Annie xxxx
Tom and Fay have a son!!
