Meet your instructor

Me and my son, Woody, 1 hour old.

Hi, my name’s Louisa. I live in Ealing, West London and I am a Wise Hippo mum to two gorgeous Wise Hippo babies.

I stumbled across hypnobirthing, purely by accident when I was pregnant with my first child. After attending a Wise Hippo Birthing Course, any anxiety I had been feeling about the birth had melted away. At the time, with lots of preparations underway making sure we were ready for the new arrival, this alone was invaluable to me.

As I headed towards two weeks past my due date, the confidence and skills I had gained on the course helped me and my husband as we resisted pressure from my midwives to be induced, something I was keen to avoid.

I went on to have an amazing birth, and even though it differed from what I had imagined, it was a positive, drug-free, life-changing experience. No matter what, I certainly believe I had the right birth on the day for both myself and my daughter.

I have been raving about hypnobirthing ever since and from the day I found out I was pregnant with my second, I was so excited, I simply couldn’t wait to experience it all over again. The birth of my son was nothing short of magical. It may be hard to believe for some but I loved every minute and will cherish the memories forever.

From then on, I just knew that I wanted to support other expectant mums to have similar experiences. Meeting your baby for the first time should be the most amazing experience of your life, something to look forward to and something to cherish. Unfortunately, because it’s the negative birth stories capturing the headlines, women approach it with fear and trepidation. It simply doesn’t have to be that way. So here I am, now a fully qualified Wise Hippo Birthing Instructor, ready to share my experience and teach you how to become an expert in deep relaxation so that you and your baby can have the right birth on the day.

And just because some people like to know all the juicy details, feel free to read all about my birth stories.
