TestimonialsLouise, Paul, Edison and baby Ada
At around 32 weeks I was fortunate enough to have an antenatal appointment with Jo, I walked in utterly deflated and she instantly sensed my frustration and just “got” how and why I wanted to birth my baby as I did. I can’t explain how amazing I felt that day, I’d finally met someone who wasn’t questioning my motives or suggesting I was putting my baby at risk by having a home birth, she knew and understood hypnobirthing, most things I didn’t even have to explain to her, she just knew.
I gave birth to my boy at home in a pool in my living room with Jo there helping me along every step, talking when I wanted to talk, silent when I was in my “zone”, monitoring me and my baby only when necessary and I felt safe and confident with her there, which to me was invaluable.
I cannot put into words how much Jo has helped and guided me through both my pregnancies, she’s not only a brilliant midwife and someone I feel totally safe with, but has become a dear friend. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to have Jo at the birth of all my babies.
Ditch the brand-new pram and buy a ‘pre-loved’ one, spend the money on your birth and I promise it’ll be the best thing you’ve ever done.
Before my wife Lou was lucky enough to meet Jo at an antenatal check, we really didn’t think that we were going to find a midwife that was on our wavelength. We were sure we wanted a home birth, had done our research and knew it really was the best way forward for Mum and baby. However, every time we met a member of the team, we were confronted with doubting questions, head-shaking and obstacles. It was clear they didn’t think it was a good idea and therefore weren’t being very supportive.
That all changed when Jo came on board. She completely understood what we wanted and gave us the confidence to move forward.
At the birth, she just knew exactly what to do and say and when to do and say it, so important in a Hypnobirthing environment. I never thought labour and birth could be such a positive experience and Jo was a big part of making that happen.
