My name is Jeanie, I was born in Ruislip Middlesex. I currently live in Leighton Buzzard Bedfordshire with my husband and our two children
I first heard about The Wise Hippo Programme when I was a Doula for a couple who asked me to attend the classes with them. I had never experienced hypnosis techniques before and was intrigued as to what was going to happen.
My view of hypnosis was based on what I had seen on the tv. So the journey to the first class I was thinking, we will be sat with a watch being swung in front of our faces and a lady saying……"Look into my eyes, you feel no pain, you feel no pain." I couldn’t have been more wrong!
My couple learnt that there are states of hypnosis we naturally go into everyday. By using these in the right way leading up to and during birth, we are able to get ourselves as comfortable as we can be. Feeling calm, relaxed and in control no matter what path the birth takes.
Attending this birth made me realise I wanted to be a part of teaching this amazing way of preparing for labour and birth.
