Hannah was amazing! We feel fully prepared since doing the course with her. She was very professional and so easy to talk to. We felt very much at ease discussing the birth with her and she answered all our silly questions. Thank you Hannah  X

I cannot thank Hannah enough for all she has done! Childhood friends- she has supported me throughout my whole pregnancy. With only 8 weeks to go I feel so at ease with the whole experience to come. 
The hypnobirthing is 100% something to consider, every session is different and you fully understand what’s going on! You can discuss and plan your birthing plan without feeling judged or guided to do something your not comfortable with. 
All options are provided to yourself with photos and demonstrations so your fully involved & living the moment. 
Hannah is an amazingly talented woman and I wouldn’t want anyone else going through this experience with myself & my partner.

For all you anxious Mumma’s out there, please give Hannah a message because it’s an amazing opportunity you would hate to miss out on and the best thing about it is your partner is also involved within the whole session! 
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I had been looking for the right hypnobirthing instructor course for a long time when I came across The Little Birth Company.

Other companies didn’t fit with my own flexible ethos on what positive birth meant.

From the start Wendy and Melissa have been supportive and put me completely at ease.

The training itself was a brilliant weekend, the materials are brilliant and I left feeling excited and ready to start.

Two months later, with the support of The Little Birth Company family (emphasis on family, the support is unreal)  my new business is booming and local mamas are benefitting from the bespoke courses. 🥰

I cannot recommend Hannah enough. My birth wasn’t how I planned at all infact nothing was to plan. If you asked me to sum it up in one word. Empowering is definitely the best I can think off. Even when everything goes how it shouldn’t your body and mind copes as your safety for your baby is such a natural desire. I wanted this calm therapeutic birth and ended up with none of it and being rushed into theatre but either way there is no right or wrong way. I still had the calm, in control and safe birth I wanted and got a beautiful happy healthy baby. Thank you so much xx

We loved hypnobirthing with Hannah! She's extremely knowledgeable and a great person to talk through any thoughts or concerns with. We learnt a lot and finished the course feeling much clearer and confident about the options available. She has a very calming presence and we found ourselves really looking forward to each meeting - especially the lovely guided relaxation at the end. I'm so glad and grateful we had the chance to begin our journey as parents in such a positive way and would recommend it to anyone.

I would absolutely recommend Hannah. This was our second baby and so we wanted an antenatal and hypnobirthing refresher, having done something similar three years ago. Hannah came to our house, which was great, and the whole session made us feel really prepared, focused and empowered. I’m sure the longer courses would be even more beneficial but this worked perfectly for us in later pregnancy. We really utilised all the course materials and relaxations in the run up to labour, too. Thank so much Hannah!

Feeling very positive and excited for birth having gone to Joanna’s hypnobirthing course. Lots of facts and discussion about what will actually happen and feel so much more clued up and calmer. Excellent experience!

During my pregnancy I booked onto a 4 week hypnobirthing course with Joanna where we had arranged to do the classes at my parents house, it was the best experience in giving myself and my birthing partners (partner and mum) the knowledge and skills to help me through my labor when the time came. It was especially good that we could arrange it within my family home as my partner is quite shy and would have felt out of his comfort zone if we where in a class full of strangers. It was very personal experience and well worth it. 
Joanna is very knowledgeable and passionate about all things birth and empowering woman in making the right informed choices for themselves. Any questions or doubts that I or my birthing partners had where answered confidentiality 💜 xxx

Hypnobirthing with Joanna was one of the best things that I did as it helped to focus on what I wanted for the birth of my baby and also helped me to relax and feel in control
of the decisions I was making. When it came to the birth of my baby I used the techniques Joanna went through with me and created my birthing space which helped with the positive birthing of my baby even when the birth did not go as planned. The support and advice Joanna gave me was invaluable and I am so thankful to have had her throughout my pregnancy and after the birth of my son xxx

My partner and I have had a great time with Hannah doing the full Hypnobirthing Course. This has really prepared us for the birth of our first baby and empowered us to cope with whatever happens and remain calm.


Personally I now feel excited, ready and know I am capable! 


Hannah is so passionate in what she does and it really comes across. She is so knowledgeable and wise beyond her years. She made each session personal to our needs/feelings and went above and beyond. 


Thank you so much.


We would highly recommend doing one of Hannah's courses.

I attended Joanna’s Pregnancy relaxation classes for 6 weeks and can not recommend them enough! I was terrified at the thought of giving birth and after only my first class I left feeling empowered and ensured that I could do this, better than that...I was built to do this! Her classes were a fantastic space for me to unwind, gain valuable knowledge and confidence in myself and my ability to bring my little boy safely and lovingly into this world. Since my relaxation classes have ended I’ve felt a huge gap in my weekly activities and truly miss Joanna’s calm and reassuring company! I have now booked her hypnobirthing class and will be starting her aquanatal classes this coming week!

Thank you for having such a positive influence on my first pregnancy experience!

What a lovely afternoon Ive had with the wonderful Hannah from @reframingbirth on her 'Reframe your birth mini course' which I won at Christmas. We chatted for 2.5 hours covering all aspects of hypnobirthing, relaxation, breathing, how my body works and birth choices to name a few topics. Combined with the knowledge I had already got from The Positive Birth Book and Hannah's website, I feel totally prepared for any eventually when it comes to our big day. It's such a lovely feeling knowing she is on hand to help me with any questions or support I might need going forward and I feel honoured to have my own personal midwife and new friend to share this magical experience with. I would highly recommend anyone to get in touch with her, especially if you have any fears or concerns about birth. Birth is not something to be afraid of but sometimes we just need that bit or reassurance and support. Thanks so much Hannah X X X X

I attended Joanna's pregnancy relaxation course and highly recommend. I found it such a valuable space to discuss, learn and most importantly relax. The breathing techniques, guided relaxation and visualisation have helped me to prepare for birth and complimented my weekly pregnancy yoga class too. thank you Joanna! great knowledge and a lovely relaxed, positive approach.

I had the pleasure of attending Joanna’s relaxation in pregnancy course and care of the newborn workshop.

I would highly recommend both. Joanna has a lovely calming, compassionate manor. She made it easy to ask questions and put myself and my husband at ease. I will look out for her classes in the future

Tonight I had the pleasure of talking to Hannah from @reframingbirth about breastfeeding. She offered some great tips and advice for a beginner such as myself! We discussed all sorts from positive affirmations and relaxation to how to express and store breast milk. I have found it very educational and hopefully it’ll be a big help to me when Lottie is here now that I know more about what is happening and how to breastfeed. Hannah also specialises in hypnobirthing sessions too which I think is an amazing way to get into the right mindset ready for labour!

A massive thank you to Hannah, I have so enjoyed this course. Hannah is very supportive, informative, calm, approachable and welcoming. She was super patient with me, and helped sort out any fears I have. Hannah always answered any questions and nothing was off limits! She also didn’t laugh or make me feel silly when I had daft questions. I feel so much more prepared and happy with any choices that I need to make in this journey. I would 100% recommend Hannah and this hypnobirth course to anyone. As a first time mummy it’s been amazing! THANK YOU SO MUCH. 💕

I'm so happy I chose Hannah for my Anternatal class during my pregnancy. Hannah is an excellent teacher and made it very easy to understand the unknown for a first time mum to be and makes you feel reassured during a very anxious time. 
Even when I was in hospital at 39 weeks due to hyperemesis and I was due to be induced, I emailed Hannah for reassurance and after several emails forth and back, she then went out of her way to come visit me on the ward and put me at ease during a very anxious and stressful time. I can't thank you enough for the support you gave me. 
You are amazing!!!

After having a previous birth with no idea what was coming and feeling like everything was being decided for me, seeing Hannah has made me feel extremely positive about my next birth next month. Very professional friendly, calming and helpful. I’m looking forward to using what I have learnt for my home birth in January. My other half, also birthing partner, said he felt like he learnt a lot more than he expected as he wasn’t sure what to expect. Thank you again Hannah!!

Joanna's hypnobirthing course was brilliant for me and allowed me to have the positive birth that we planned. She came to my house weekly and we discussed what to expect during labour, how to remain calm and focussed to allow my body to do what it should naturally. She gave me relaxation tracks to listen to which really helped me to relax during pregnancy while also ensuring my subconscious was preparing for birth. As a result of this course I had a positive natural pool birth which was quick, calm and well planned.

If it wasn't for Joanna's hypnobirthing course then I wouldn't have had such a positive birth. I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering hypnobirthing.

I can't recommend Hannah for her hypnobirthing course enough. We went for the Skype course due to my husband working funny shifts and it was a lovely relaxed way to learn all Hannah had to teach us whilst still feeling personal. Hannah is very friendly and always willing to help with any questions you have, I had a few! When it came time for me to put all that hypnobirthing knowledge into action it really helped and I managed to use only hypnobirthing techniques as pain relief and also used BRAINS when we needed it afterwards making my birth exactly what I had hoped it would be.It also really helped my husband prepare for his role as birth partner and during my labour he was incredible, he was very sceptical to start with, Hannah worked her magic on him and totally got him on board and now he's a total convert.

Just returned from Hypnobirthing Instructor training with The Little Birth Company. They are so lovely and welcoming. I can’t wait to get started teaching my first couples. Fantastic food and venue for the course.

Our learning environment was relaxed and friendly, and I’m loving being part of this community of like minded birth professionals.  

The materials provided are beautiful, top-quality and alongside the teaching content there’s extra information on starting and developing your hypnobirthing business.

I’m also reassured that they are very active online for additional support. Emma

It's very weird, like at the time, the skills you shared with me weren't in my mind but especially when they were asking me to relax to put the spinal on, I knew how to breathe to relax the most, and went to my little pool in my mind to get me through the hustle and bustle of getting prepped for the surgery. Very different to how I imagined having to use those skills but so effective nonetheless xxx

My vbac with Percy was so intense it was traumatizing. So I approached Hannah about preparing for this one with some hypnobirthing. I could not have managed such fast-paced, intense contractions again without those breathing methods. Plus my relaxation guides really helped me to put my past traumatic births behind me and focus on this one anew. Hypnobirthing...it works!

I have looked into different course providers for Hypnobirthing Instructor Training over the last 2 years but never found a course I felt sits right with me … until I found “The Little Birth Company.

The course was an incredible experience, well thought through, relaxing, calm and very friendly. The course providers ticked all the boxes and the support before, during and after the course have been exemplary. The handouts for clients are so beautiful and the instructor manual is simply incredible and a massive help when teaching my clients. I adore the structure and couldn’t recommend the course higher.

Thank you so much Wendy and Melissa!!

Thinking about giving birth is really overwhelming and can be scary, but Hannah explains it all in such a way that it removes the fear and makes you feel fully empowered. Talking through every scenario as well as learning the Hypno birthing techniques allowed me have the confidence communicate exactly what I needed and wanted throughout my pregnancy, birth and postnatal care, from health professionals to family.thank you so much for helping me in the lead up to my second child's birth. I was more scared this time round than last but having Hannah on my team pretty much diminished the fear.

I trained with another hypnobirthing method several years ago, but was finding the communication and support massively lacking.

I felt isolated and frustrated so I researched other companies and after a long thought process I decided to join LBC (having considered many others!).

I joined through their fast track option and immediately knew that this is where I belong. Wendy and Melissa are just amazing women....they actually care about their instructors and the programme they have created is just brilliant.

What I have also found wonderful is the other instructors...what an incredible bunch of inspiring women who all have so much knowledge and passion.

I wish that I'd moved years ago but I am so happy that I am now part of this amazing family.

The resources are just beautiful too and the mp3s are just so relaxing !!

Best decision ever!!

I joined the LBC via their fast track option, I have previously trained with two other hypnobirthing organisations but was missing the sense of being part of a  community, I just felt like a tiny cog in a big wheel.  

I haven't been disappointed, Wendy and Melissa are so welcoming and being part of the LBC is like being part of a family, there is a willingness to be open and share experiences and knowledge that I really like.

As an experienced teacher I also like the flexibility in terms of how I teach.

The materials and branding are lovely and very modern.

I'm really enjoying it so far and so are my clients.

I'm so happy that I made the switch!

Working for The LBC is like a dream.

I was looking for a hypnobirthing company that was heavy on communication and support for instructors, had a beautiful programme for clients and a programme I would love teaching and the LBC ticked every box.

Wendy and Melissa go above and beyond to make sure all their instructors are happy and they also ask for our feedback constantly.

What is the best thing about the LBC is that we all connect as instructors and support each other enormously.

There is only collaboration and love with this company no competition. How unique is that?
