This episode talks about the importance of words and language used during pregnancy and birth and how this can have a negative effect on how well we labour and how we feel about our birth experience.
In this episode I welcome special guest, Kirsty, from Take Five Aromatherapy. Kirst chats to me about the benefits of aromatherapy during pregnancy, birth and after baby is born and how aromatherapy can compliment your hypnobirthing practice.

Place of birth is one of the most important decisions you will make throughout your pregnancy and one which is often based on assumptions and not facts.
In this episode I talk you through the different birth place options and how to make the best choice for you.

The episode talks about why pain is such a bad word, why we should ignore those people who tell us how ‘painful’ labour is and how hypnobirthing can help to reduce pain during labour. I also talk about some of the pain relief options that are available to you because hypnobirthing is not anti pain relief AT ALL.

In today's episode I sit down and have a chat with my good friend, Emilia, about her two inductions. She talks about how hypnobirthing helped her when she was induced for a second time and says hypnobirthing is 'the best thing I've ever done'.
In today's episode I talk all about inductions. They are a hot topic and some of the stats around them are quite shocking. I discuss this and also give some tips on what to do if you decide an induction is the best route for you. Plus how hypnobirthing can help an induction labour.
In today's episode I discuss birth plans and how important they are. We are often told that they are pointless because they never get stuck to, and I talk about why this isn't true. I also talk about why we should have more than one birth plan.

This episode is a special as it isn't about hypnobirthing or pregnancy, but instead it is about my pumping journey and why I ended up exclusively pumping for my daughter for 12 months.
There isn't loads of information available about exclusively pumping, which is why I wanted to record my story as well as give some of my top tips.

In this week's episode, I sit down to interview a previous client of mine, Jim, who has been a birth partner for the birth of both of his children. He gives two different perspectives on being a birth partner, one where he felt helpless and quite scared and the second after they had done hypnobirthing, where he felt like he had a real role to play and ended up having an amazing experience. This episode really shows how hypnobirthing is for birth partners too.
