Testimonials from just a few of Jackie’s hypnobirthing clients. Please enquire for more birth stories, or go to Jackie’s therapist page.
“I’ve practised yoga for years & had heard about the use of hypnotherapy in birthing so when I became pregnant was keen to find ways to help my body manage birthing in a natural way rather than falling into a clinical, medicalised process. From the first of the five classes with Jackie I felt greatly empowered that the knowledge I was gaining there would help me fulfil my wish.
Jackie is pragmatic, stressing the fact that flexibility is key, birth is unpredictable & sometimes things don’t go to plan, but always inspiring about the benefits of a positive, informed approach & relaxed body and mind. I feel no fear about the upcoming birth, I am determined to do all I can to empower my body to do it’s job naturally but remarkably I also feel more ready to face alternative outcomes if that should not be possible, knowing that I have the tools and peace of mind to adapt to whatever happens. I now look forward to this amazing, once in a lifetime experience. Suzanne
Thought I would drop you a line to let you know our beautiful baby boy, Rudy, was born on Friday 30th Nov at the MLBU. The birth was amazing and a totally different story to my first labour and birth. I attribute this in the main to hypnobirthing! The MLBU was amazing and we were only there 2 hours before Rudy was born. The staff there were fabulous and it was a wonderful place to give birth. I was able to go through the whole labour in a calm and focused manner, staying positive and not using any pain relief. I can honestly say that when I was in the pool and at the pushing stage I was so focused, I felt no pain at all. The birth breathing techniques we learnt made this part of the labour a totally empowering experience and so very different to last time. I felt in control of what was happening and not afraid. So thank you for everything – I got the birth I wanted and Rudy is such a chilled out, relaxed baby. He is amazing. Vicky Brooke
Labour Acupressure Classes are provided at The Orange Grove Clinic by childbirth specialist, Rebecca Geanty.
This 4 hour labour acupressure course runs over 2 weeks – new course dates Tuesday 4th June and Tuesday 11th June – 7pm – 9pm. £50 per couple.
These practical classes are designed to provide you and your partner with the tools to be able to administer a natural and effective source of labour pain relief, using acupressure. The birthing partner will discover how they can be of great use during the birthing process, supporting their loved one and helping to relieve any labour pain.
Testimonial from Previous Course:
“Doug and I attended your acupressure for labour workshop at OGC in September… we ended up having a very fast labour, from waters breaking with only medium strength contractions about an hour before to delivery about 45 mins later going pretty much straight into 2nd stage labour. Once things got started, contractions were very strong very fast!
Doug used the back pressure points and I used the hand/thumb point at the start of each of these contractions and had brilliant results! They instantly took the edge of, reducing ‘pain’ significantly. This then gave me the chance to get my breathing under control which I couldn’t do without the acupressure. We both were relieved and comforted to have something ‘to do’… We both wanted to say thank you and pass on our very positive experience! Please feel free to use any of this as a testimonial for any future courses, we would highly recommend it!” Amy and Doug (and baby Lily)
