I attended Nissa’s course to prepare for my third birth. And I’m so glad I did! We had a beautiful, empowering homebirth. My partner supported me confidently, guided me through breathing and helped me with massage. He was able to practice all he’d learnt. I was able to stay confident, positive and used the visualisations we practiced in the sessions. Don’t hesitate, if you’re pregnant and want to enjoy your birth, book now! Thanks Nissa!

I am a midwife, an osteopath, a teacher (and a mother of three). I recently attended Nissa’s two-evening hypnobirthing course at St Thomas’, as an observer. From all my perspectives I was really impressed with this course. Nissa is very positive. Her teaching style is extremely inclusive. The material she covers is well thought out in both content and delivery. It helped me to better understand the term ‘hypnobirthing’ - so much more than just aiming for a controlled, quiet birth. I am sure everyone must complete this course feeling empowered for a positive birth experience.
