Hypnobirthing, Pregnancy Relaxation, Positive Caesarean and Instructor Training

Ok hands up, who is feeling anxious, scared or maybe you are even dreading giving birth!

At some point in pregnancy reality sets in! Labour! Birth! Contractions!!!!  We have all heard the stories, the occasional positive one but generally, people love to share their birth stories regardless.

Not many people share this, so we are here to tell you now that birth can be enjoyable!  Birth can be hard work but you are strong and you are capable.  Did you know your body was made to give birth?  

So how do you go from being scared to feeling calm and even looking forward to giving birth?

Supporting you to have a positive experience that will impact on your journey into parenthood and life with a new baby is what we do, and we are passionate about it, maybe you can tell!

The Little Birth Company offers Hypnobirthing and Pregnancy Relaxation aimed at supporting you to plan for a calm, confident & positive birth. 

We also offer a wonderful workshop for anyone planning an Elective Caesarean Birth, we believe that birth can be positive wherever and however it happens.

Absolutely THRILLED for my awesome clients Niamh and Jamie, check this out for a positive birth! - 20 March, 2020

Baby Matilda's birth - 'eventful' yet calm and in control
How inspiring is Laura and Jack’s story of their first baby’s birth? Things certainly didn’t go ‘to plan’ yet Laura was incredible at remaining calm and positive throughout some potentially concerning events. Jack was a star in reminding Laura of all the hypnobirthing techniques they’d learned. Well done you two, and welcome beautiful Matilda. - 23 October, 2019

Training Testimonials

I did a LOT of research when it came to deciding who to train with. I really didn’t want to make a wrong move. When I found TLBC I knew immediately that it was ‘the one’. I had that same knowing feeling I’d felt when I tried my wedding dress on... it just felt right!

When I then spoke to Wendy and Melissa and heard a bit more about the company and their ideas and the support they offered it all just made sense to me.

I’m so glad that I made the choice... it’s been fab! 


I initially trained with another Hypnobirthing provider. I loved the course but felt the materials did not represent me or my business very well. I wanted something attractive, welcoming, calming, warm and familiar. 💗🤰

Of course branding is nothing if you haven’t got the information and support to back it up. I contacted Wendy and Melissa in early 2019 to find out what TLBC was all about. It was reassuring to know the course was written by  very experienced ladies. Between them they have a resume which includes: midwife, doula, Hypnotherapist, pregnancy yoga and Hypnobirthing practitioner. I was initially blown away with the support and care given to instructors. They listened and responded to our feedback and really cared about each instructors business and clients.

The course itself is fantastic and I have had such wonderful feedback from group and private clients. Even those who initially thought it wouldn’t be for them have praised the course! 😊

It isn’t hippyish and doesn’t make false promises. This was key for me. Birth is real, it’s unpredictable, anyone promising you a pain free birth should be avoided at all costs. TLBC discusses when the journey to birth changes and I feel this is so important in preparing women and their birth partners for labour and beyond.

The relaxation scripts are beautiful 🌸 They are so calming and relaxing, I’ve definitely had a few nod off during sessions! 😴Instructors also have the option to record these themselves which I will get round to one day!

It’s important to me that I offer information to my clients which will allow them to make their own decisions. TLBC offers regular CPD training and ensures information is balanced and unbiased. 👍

The Little Birth Company is like a family. It’s so inspiring to see the wonderful things fellow instructors are doing, as midwives, doulas and Hypnobirthing practitioners. It’s women supporting women, building each other up, being a listening ear and signposting to advice or guidance. Without the support of TLBC instructors I wouldn’t be where I am today with Birth Bloom. 


Client Testimonials

I came to Sarah's "Baby Ready" workshop feeling daunted and worried about certain aspects of what life with a newborn will be like - namely the lack of sleep! I left feeling much better and reassured that there is no right or wrong way to do things. The simple idea that properly relaxing can be just as beneficial as actually sleeping gave me confidence! I really enjoyed the session, it was full of useful tips and recommendations, and I particularly liked the relaxation part. I can see how building calm and relaxation into daily life is so important for life with a new baby. The pace of the class perfectly suited the group and I was really grateful of the opportunity to ask questions and take our time covering the topics that were most important to us. Sarah has created a really calm and relaxing atmosphere and is very reassuring about any concerns. Her easy-nature and knowledge made it a really enjoyable experience.


Thank you Sarah for such a great session and for welcoming us into such a homely and comfortable setting. It was great spending the afternoon with you being able to talk frankly and openly abouut our concerns and worries. I honestly now feel relaxed and ready to have our baby!! We had already completed an NCT course, but that was a large group with little 1:1 support - whereas your session was much more intimate and being able to have these discussions in a smaller group certainly helped us to feel more informed and confident. Being able to deep-dive into certain topics without feeling like we are disrupting a schedule was brill. I really enjoyed the relaxation element! We're really grateful of the follow-up support too - it really shows that you care so much about your clients' experiences and happiness! I'll definitely reccommend this 'Baby Ready' session to friends and family, it was so beneficial.
