This beautifully written letter reminds new parents to give themselves a break...to not be too hard on themselves...to give themselves time to adjust
Dear Mummy and Daddy,
Please keep this letter from me in a place where you can read it and re-read it when things are rough and you are feeling down.Please don’t expect too much from me as a newborn baby, or too much from yourselves, as parents. Give us both six weeks as a birthday present, six weeks for me to grow, develop, mature, and become more stable and predictable – six weeks for you to rest and relax and allow your body to get back to normal.....

Dr Andrew Mayers of Bournemouth University has conducted a research study looking specifically at how men feel about the support they receive during their partner's pregnancy. At easibirthing® and parenting, we completely believe the study's reported feelings of exclusion in the whole process and pregnancy and birth can be extended to any non-birthing parent regardless of gender. Our clients often report feeling sidelined or their needs ignored.
Given how prevalent post natal depression and anxiety can be amongst new parents, regardless whether they have given birth or not, it is time as a society that we give them to space and support to adjust during pregnancy and childbirth to help prevent adverse mental health beyond.

I would highly recommend Sharon’s courses.
I gave birth to my son after attending her course and it was a game changer for me. I felt in control throughout. My son turned 14 last week!

At easibirthing® and parenting we believe that the best birth is the one that is right for THIS mum and THIS baby. Every woman deserves to be supported regardless of the mode of delivery.
Labour can be unpredictable, and an emergency caesarean can be the right decision for some women and babies so an important role of a hypnobirthing course should be to build a repertoire of techniques to deal with when it doesn't go according to plan.
But did you know that hypnobirthing is suitable for an elective or planned C-section birth too?
In light of the recent Ockenden report, a controversial and fiery debate has followed about what is the 'safe' mode for delivering your baby. Unfortunately this has forgotten the real point. It was not that the validity of either mode of delivery is in question, but instead that an under funded and resourced maternity service was at the root of what happened in Shrewsbury where professional decisions and choices were then flawed.

At easibirthing® and parenting, we love to hear about the transformation our courses can make to a therapist's work....
Dear Sharon, me and all my colleagues absolutely loved your teachings.
I have left your class feeling so positive and everything you said makes complete sense.
Thank you so much, you're an inspiration. Maria

Is hypnobirthing only applicable to vaginal deliveries?
A resounding NO from the team at easibirthing® !For too long the debate has solely been centred around whether a vaginal birth or C-section is the optimal mode of delivery for both you and your baby. And whilst that debate is important, it often misses the point of providing the woman with the full psychological support regardless of the decision.Even this debate played out publicly across the media and society can leave a woman who needs or wants a C-section feeling inadequate, feeling her body is inadequate somehow and guilt and shame can result.
