Hi! I'm Mihiri.
Just after the bank holiday weekend in August 2018, I found out I was 13 weeks pregnant. After a long struggle with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, this wasn't something I was expecting to hear and I was certainly not prepared for the news. We were, of course, very excited but I was also terrified at the prospect of giving birth and having heard the phrase 'geriatric pregnancy' being thrown about. Everything I had ever heard about giving birth had programmed me to believe that I was in for the most harrowing experience of my life!
This is when I discovered hypnobirthing. It not only taught me the physiology of what was happening inside me but also helped me understand how very capable our bodies are at birthing our babies and what a natural thing giving birth was. Soon I was looking forward to the birth and we had the most incredible home birth under fairy lights, with our favourite music playing in the background.
Hypnobirthing helped me turn one of my biggest fears into an experience I now look back at proudly and fondly. I feel so passionately that every woman needs to know about the benefits of hypnobirthing, which is why I trained as an instructor with The Little Birth Company.
I feel so privileged to bring this great programme to you to help you have a great birth experience, irrespective of how and where you give birth.
If you can relate to anything I've said or would like to know more, I'd love to hear from you!
