My name is Nina Acedera. I wanted to share
our (quite long) positive hypnobirth story! I started your online course at around week 20 of my pregnancy. Our little hypnobub Magnolia-Jo was born with a completely natural and pain-free labor and delivery on 8 June 2019 at 7:04AM. I was 37 weeks and 5 days pregnant at the time I went into labor.
I actually had a bit of a scare when I was at 34 weeks. I was out at the grocery store and about to go to work when I felt a huge gush of blood come out, almost like a period. I immediately called the midwife and she asked me to come into the hospital so that they could check to see if there were any problems with my baby or placenta. I was in tears while I was walking back to my car and was feeling quite shaken up, but then I decided that, even if this would mean her coming to the world earlier than expected, I would calmly meet whatever turn my birthing would take. I turned on my affirmations and took relaxation breaths on the whole drive...
I just want to thank you for your wonderful online course that prepared me mentally in the lead-up and during the birth of my second bub. After my first labour where I was induced, in bed with stirrups, with an assisted delivery complete with a ventouse and episiotomy I was quite traumatised. I told a friend that I was quite scared about labour this time around and she recommended your Hypnobubs Online course.
I crammed listening to a lesson a night as I was 36 weeks pregnant. I found your ‘toolkit’ so helpful. I was so calm and zen and the contractions were so manageable that we stayed at home way too long and delivered our beautiful baby girl Heidi calmly in the car at the roundabout just inside the hospital grounds. Friends and family all imagined that to be quite traumatic but it was beautiful, calm and by far my favourite of the two labours so far because of hypnobirthing.
The visualisation of surges being like a wave in the ocean alongside...
Having gone nearly 2 weeks over with my first baby, I decided to up my walking during week 38/39. At 38+6 my toddler and I set off for a huge walk in the morning.
I had aches from 1 pm that afternoon but thought nothing if it.
At 8 pm, after our toddler had gone to bed, I had a nice warm bath, listening to the tracks. Something told me to start packing my hospital bag. I didn’t finish but got most of it done.
At 9 pm I realised the aches were coming and going somewhat regularly and decided to time, just out of interest. They were 10 or so mins apart. This may sound strange but I was SO excited to feel real contractions. I’d previously only felt the fake contractions from being induced. One of my wishes for this birth was to feel a real contraction - wish granted! I had a few tiny spots of blood on my pad just before I went to bed (I’d had zero ‘signs’ before this). I decided to sleep and said to my husband that maybe, just maybe...
Introducing our third babe, Rio, born 5 days before his guess date weighing 4.14kg or 9 pounds 2 ounces.
I was induced with our first two babies, both ending up with an epidural and the first resulting in a PPH and subsequent issues with feeding. With number 3, I was adamant I did not want to be induced, wanting to experience spontaneous labour however knew that my OB would most likely push for early induction considering I have largish babies. Fast forward to 36 weeks, I was sent for a growth scan after consistently measuring 4 weeks ahead and as suspected, my ob wanted to induce at 38 weeks. Everything I learnt in the hypnobubs course kicked in at this point, I felt empowered, I trusted my body and I stuck to my guns by turning down the induction. I am so glad I did as I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect birth.
Surges started at 10.30pm, Christmas night. At first, they were about 18 mins apart and very mild so I stayed in bed to try to get some...
After an anxiety-filled first pregnancy and a frightening, fast and stressful first birth, I decided to look into hypnobirthing for my second. What I found was more than I could have ever imagined. My hypnobirthing pregnancy was calm and positive as I practiced my affirmations and techniques. I fell asleep every night listening to the[caption id="attachment_36569" align="alignright" width="241"] The moment we met baby Flynn[/caption]
relaxation tracks and felt joyful, positive and excited about my upcoming birth. My hypnobirth was so beautiful that 5 minutes after our hypnobub was born, I said to my husband " I want to do that AGAIN!". My two births could not have been more different and I am so grateful that I found hypnobirthing. Here is my story,
I just wanted to say thank you. Your Online Hypnobubs hypnobirthing program has changed my life in less than 3 weeks!
I’m currently still pregnant but have started your online program. I’ve been dealing with birth trauma from my first baby since Oct 2016. I would wake at night with tears running down my face from the dreams I would have about it etc. I have been petrified of my upcoming second birth... and now I’m not, at all.
I thought the program may be a little too ’hippie dippie’ for me but I’ve thrown myself into it and it’s fantastic. I knew I had to do something to move on from my last birth. Your program was my answer and it’s the best! I’m not afraid, no matter what happens during this birth. I feel strong, brave and empowered.
I’ve been listening to the tracks every night and watching the videos with my husband when we can. The flexibility of the program is fantastic.
I’m so passionate about your...
We are often asked about the differences between the hypnobubs® hypnobirthing online course and other hypnobirthing courses. So, let's bust some of the myths and provide some clarity! :)
Firstly, 'hypnobirthing' is a descriptive word that is used to identify the use of hypnotherapy with childbirth. Anyone can use the word 'hypnobirthing' or 'hypnobirth' or 'hypno-birthing' to describe what they do. There are many different types of 'hypnobirthing' programs/courses/tracks available throughout the world. A selection of these hypnobirthing courses incorporate 'childbirth education' and others just cover the use of hypnotherapy for pregnancy and birth.
Some of the world's most popular hypnobirthing courses (that also provide a childbirth education focus) are hypnobubs®, Wise Hippo Program, Hypnobirthing Association (UK) and HypnoBirthing - the Mongan Method. In addition to these there are also programs such as Calmbirth and Hypnobabies who don't...
Firstly I wanted to say thank you for the amazing online course. We had a beautiful calm first birth completely natural. We couldn’t of asked for a better experience.
Honestly, I can’t rave enough about your course and our experience. Even the midwives asked if they could book in for my future birth. Haha. They were blown away and even kept my door sign that I made for other hypnobirthing mums that come to the hospital.
Thank you so much.

I really just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your online course.
I successfully hypnobirthed both of my babies, the first was a 55-hour labour drug and pain-free and my second on Monday where I was induced via the drip. I had heard some truly scary labour stories about births that used the drip and if it hadn’t been for your course I could have been one of those “horror” stories. My doctor had never heard of hypnobirthing and was sceptical as was his student doctor that was present for the birth.
My labour time in total was 4.5 hours with an hour of that pushing my posterior baby out. I went from 2cm to 10 cm in 2 hours with strong regular surges and both the midwives and doctors were amazed at how calm I was and how quickly and easily things progressed.
I remember whispering “I’m going to start pushing in a minute”as I felt my body transitioning and the midwives found it great! As did my hubby as he had a moment to prepare...
