Joan writes:

I have always been in awe of the ability of birthing mothers, each having their own journey and story to tell. However my fascination is with each mothers approach to the birthing process. Many women are calm and focused and have the ability to work with their body while others are terrified and appear to be experiencing excessive pain. I knew that if each mother had the right support she could have a more tranquil and rewarding experience while welcoming her baby in to a calm world.

How do I know this?

I have witnessed the extremes of childbirth too many times for there not to be a reason why some mothers have an amazing experience whilst others can be traumatised. Learning about hypnobirthing gave me the answers - it brought it all came together - the ability for Mothers, birth partners and midwives to gain the knowledge to have  a complete team approach to child birth and enhancing the birth experience."
