Inspiring Births HypnoBirthing
Leila Gardiner
Surrey, UK
www.inspiringbirths.com
07775 425301
For many expectant mothers the concept of a comfortable or even calm joyful birthing remains just outside of our reach. Millions of women have experienced a painful birth and the idea that birth must be painful is widely accepted as the norm. Many obstetricians witnessing birthing mothers who have comfortable or even painless births are dismissed as lucky, delusional or having a really high pain threshold. HypnoBirthing can give you these results, so why not contact me to find out how it can benefit your baby’s birth.
