Our Birth Stories

I’ve had one class with Carly on my road to hypnobirthing and I loved it. I feel soooo much more in control and I feel so justified in my decision. I’ve definitely done the right thing and can’t wait for the rest of the course.

We decided to take a Hypnobirthing course because we wanted our birth to be as calm and relaxed as possible – and it was!

Our birth didn’t quite go to plan but the techniques that Carly taught us made sure we had the right birth on the day. The Wise Hippo programme helped me to stay calm during my induction and I believe it helped me to give birth using just gas and air!

Thank you Carly! Xxx

The hypnobirthing really helped keep me calm and relaxed throughout my pregnancy. Although I didn’t get to have the water birth I wanted it was still really helpful. Carly is very informative.

I decided to do hypnobirthing after hearing horror stories from friends and family and being scared that I wouldn’t be able to cope. From the offset Carly was friendly and helpful and made me feel at ease as soon as I met her. The classes taught me great techniques to keep calm and relaxed and they were a chance to talk through my fears and anxieties. Carly was always quick to reassure me and I came away from the course knowing I could have a nice birth experience.

We booked on the course after I’d read a book on hypnobirthing, and felt it appealed. Due to work commitments we couldn’t make a group session work so took a private class which was great – it meant we could focus in on parts we were more interested in and less worried about asking silly questions in front of others etc!

Me and my husband found hypnobirthing to be more rewarding than we thought possible it helped us to stay calm over the last couple of months when we attended a lot of antenatal appointments, not just on the day. When the big day came we ended up having a cesarean but the tools we learnt weren’t wasted. I used my breathing techniques in theatre which was a bit scary, so I remained calm and enjoyed the experience of meeting my baby boy!! Carly made the course easy and fun! Thank you

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic this course has been and to have had Carly as our instructor. She was always friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Me and my partner really enjoy the course and learnt loads! We went from nervous unknowing parents to fully prepared and in control which is great. Carly gave me the tools that enable me to have confidence and I really feel I will have the right birth on the right day! I can honestly say that I am looking forward to the birth of our daughter and I am so confident and prepared and its all thanks to Carly!
Thank you again

My partner suggested using Embrace Birthing for the hypnobirthing experience as I was scared of giving birth to our first child. At first I was a bit sceptical due to the class being a one to one session and not knowing what happens throughout hypnobirthing. However, on arrival Carly was very friendly, down to earth and easy to talk to – which was important as I needed to feel comfortable to do the relaxation techniques.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Can’t find the words to tell you how amazing the hypnobirthing experience has been for me and baby and even daddy!!

I first looked at hypnobirthing as a way of staying calm when in hospital as well as through my labor. As I have a fear of hospitals and also being on my own. When I found Carly and exchanged emails I was already feeling better about the whole thing because she was really friendly and helpful. When we met up this feeling was only made much clearer, she was even more friendly and kind and caring in person!

Our Classes

We know everybody is different and certain people work better in different environments. One of the major benefits of hypnobirthing is to help you relax and find a comfortable place.

Therefore we offer three types of classes:

Booking onto one of our group classes provides a great way to meet other expectant mums, allowing you to discuss your experiences so far. Many expecting mums like to know that they are able to relax in different settings and its also a great to get away from other distractions at home or at work.

We do hold all our classes in the comfort of our home in Stoneclough, Manchester.

Booking onto one of our private classes will allow you to feel calm and totally relaxed in your own setting. Some people prefer the privacy that a one-to-one class can offer, finding it easier to relax and talk through any concerns.

I run private hypnobirthing antenatal classes from my home in Radcliffe/Stoneclough, Manchester, at times that suit you.
