I did a local hypnobirthing course in my 1st pregnancy 2 years ago, but really wanted to refresh my knowledge for my second pregnancy. I completed the 6 week group antenatal course with Bare Birthing and really can’t recommend Lucy enough- a lovely, supportive, clearly knowledgable & passionate teacher - not to mention the classes were such a nice relaxing way to end the week & I met some fab mums to be also. I felt so empowered and prepared once I’d finished this course. Lucy continued to be on hand for support and advice after the course ended when my pregnancy took a few unexpected turns which was so helpful and appreciated. I’m pleased to say I had an incredible birth experience and I’ve no doubt that the information, confidence & support I received from doing this course were paramount to that. I recommend hypnobirthing to everyone I know who is pregnant!

"Lucy’s support was absolutely invaluable for me through my birth experience and beyond. I started working with Lucy when I was about 33 weeks pregnant and found out that our baby wasn’t growing very well in the womb. It was a very emotional time, with two scans a week and the possibility of an emergency caesarean at any point. Lucy worked with me and my partner to guide us through what to expect in any scenario, helping us to visualise the event so we would feel confident and prepared. We had regular video chats and constant messages where she would answer my questions and offer much needed cheerleading and positivity. Ultimately we went to the birth feeling optimistic and informed. I ended up having an induction that did result in an emergency caesarean and I know that I couldn’t have stayed so calm through the experience without all of the preparation we’d done. Postnatally she’s also been a great help - as a first time mum I can 100% recommend working with her if you want to learn it all and also have the best friend and cheerleader to guide you through your birth."

I did Lucy’s private antenatal course when I was pregnant with twins. The course was amazing, informative and Lucy was so friendly that I felt confident to ask any questions that I had. My twins were born early at 34 weeks and thanks to Lucy I felt so much more prepared and in control of my birthing experience. Thanks again Lucy!
