Me and my partner did the hypnobirthing course with Elena and we both feel much more prepared and calm! Would recommend it to anyone wanting more information regarding pregnancy and birth and they teach relaxation techniques as well. We went from nervous to excited! :)

Grateful

"I was blessed to have an impromptu hypnobirthing session from Lenka during a particularly hard part of my labour. I was struggling with exhaustion after a long latent phase and needed to go into hospital for tests. After I was given the OK, I had the option of staying in hospital or going home to try and rest, but was so tired I couldn't decide and was starting to panic. Lenka could see my panic and with my permission, used her hypnobirthing training to show me how to get into a comfortable position and work through my contractions while finding a way to be calm and rest between each one. The hypnobirthing technique allowed me to calm down, refocus, and feel strong enough to go home and get some rest. I continued to use Lenka's words over the next day and by the evening after an incredibly short active labour, my little girl arrived at home, safe and sound. I wouldn't have had my intervention-free home birth without her help and will be forever grateful."

Mother

"After a traumatic birth with my first baby, falling pregnant with my second was a very daunting prospect. A friend of mine recommended Wise Mamas after a very positive hypnobirthing experience herself and she was right to give these wonderful ladies praise. Elena carried out my sessions and really helped me to feel in control and more informed about birth. She taught me some really effective strategies to keep as calm as possible and gave me the confidence to write a birth plan that reflected my preferences. I then hit jackpot when I arrived at the hospital to find that Lenka would be my birthing midwife. Her ethos, being exactly the same as Elena's, enabled my birth experience to be as calm as possible and every decision made was my own. She gently reminded me of the techniques I had learnt during my hypnobirthing course and encouraged me every step of the way. The icing on the cake was a little visit from both ladies the day after my baby had been born. I really can't thank them enough- they are incredible!"
