Charlotte helped me achieve an even better birth than I could have imagined.
Birthing seemed scary so I'd always imagined having an elective c-section. After meeting Charlotte for the first time, I was suprised by how quickly she'd put my fears to rest. She is funny, patient, understanding and very easy to talk to. I was actually excited when my contractions began (would have been terrified previously). I welcomed my baby into the world, drug free. I couldn't recommend Charlotte and the HypnoBirthing course more!

We were delighted to attend Charlotte's HypnoBirthing Classes in our second trimester of our first pregnancy. The course was filled with interesting information,and more importantly, the classes were fun and interactive. Charlotte focused not only on the core class material but also has the ability to blend it with your own personal situation. Charlotte built up our knowledge for what we were about to go through, enabling us with different methods and tools to approach the birth (cesarean or natural) calmly. My husband in particular found the factual information to be insightful and built his confidence and 'toolbox' for what he could to do assist me for the delivery of our baby boy. He also felt the knowledge armed him with what our 'rights' are to be able to question, speak up and have a voice in the labour room. We would highly reocmmend Charlotte's classes. Charlotte is not only a qualified midwife, she is a personable, down-to-earth, caring and friendly teacher, and has the added essential elements of humour and fun in her character. Charlotte continued supporting me throughout my pregnancy and still continues to be there for me whenever I need.
This wonderful experience is a MUST!
