The Ivory Rooms in Billericay was wall to wall with beautiful bumps last Thursday evening for our first ever Billericay Pregnancy Information Event. We raised £150 during the 2 hour event for the charity Bliss!
The evening exceeded expectations and was attended by 90 pregnant women. The atmosphere was electric as people came from all over the Essex area to receive knowledge about local services and charities.
A core premise of HypnoBirthing is for the mind to be relaxed so that the body can relaxed and do what it is designed to do, birth smoothly and naturally.
Babies in Waiting begin conditioning the subconscious towards relaxation from the moment that you enter the front door for our courses. We want couples to associate Willow Cottage with relaxation. We want them to feel comfortable and at ease. Not only will this aid the learning process but it means that couples can feel comfortable to ask questions freely and interact. We want them to feel truly at home.
I'm not a particularly touchy feely kind of person as it is. Therefore, when people go to have a feel of my bump I do instinctively feel a little uncomfortable. Ordinarily, if someone was to go to touch my stomach (pre pregnancy) then I would be shocked and so it surprises me that people would want to do it when I'm pregnant!
Yes, I know it's because it's the baby they want to touch but the baby is inside my body!!! How can that be forgotten? Funny how some people ask permission while already reaching out towards you.
I'm fortunate to be constantly surrounded by gorgeous bumps & glowing pregnant women while teaching Hypnobirthing. Pregnancy is such an amazing time & as part of the Hypnobirthing course we are always encouraging couples to keep a record of their thoughts & feelings plus bump pics etc as it's easy to forget certain things.
