Here are words from happy HappyBirths clients & contacts… …then read their happy birth stories!
Thanks Sarah for all your help and advice. The course was amazing, I feel so much more relaxed, positive and ready for giving birth than I thought was possible. We learnt so much, from the science behind it all, to the techniques to stay calm and have a more positive experience. We thoroughly recommend the course to anyone feeling anxious or apprehensive about giving birth.

We can’t thank Sarah enough for her wise words, knowledge and helpfulness which made us feel so at ease and comfortable ready for our baby’s birth. Sarah has provided a course full of different techniques, learning styles and loads of wonderful information. We have enjoyed every session.
Before starting the course, I felt a little nervous about giving birth. I was excited about meeting baby but knew full well that before getting to meet baby I would be going through an experience I’ve never known. I wasn’t sure of the ins and outs of birth, and only have ever heard horror stories, or have seen one born every minute (which looks painful).
Having finished the course, wow, I feel totally different. I feel now like I have a great understanding about what my body will be doing at each stage of labour. Sarah guided us through the breathing techniques. I’ve since been testing them out in day-to-day life, whenever a stressful moment pops up, and testing them out in my happy place. It has really opened my eyes to the power of breathing. I feel like I’ll be able to stay calm and really focus on breathing this baby out!
I feel very relaxed now and so excited for the day to come to meet baby but more importantly know I can give it my best, using all the tools from the course. It feels great to know that I have the best support from James, who now understands his role on the day to make it as smooth as can be.
Discussions we had after watching the various birth videos were so useful - to see and talk about different births happening in different places (but all very calm, relaxed and positive) really opened our minds to the idea that no matter what may arise on the day everything we have learnt in hypnobirthing can be put into practice.

Before taking the course with Sarah, I was feeling scared about labour and birth. Like I wouldn’t be able to cope and like it was not going to be smooth, and it was going to be stressful. After the hypnobirthing classes, I am now feeling SO much better! Much calmer, and much more informed about what’s going to happen, and my choices. I really feel like I could have a nice, calm and positive experience.
My favourite part was learning the breathing techniques to stay relaxed. I also enjoyed all of the information and science. The course content was much more based in science than I expected and I really like this!
The venue was so nice and calm venue – with comfy cushions and fab cake! Sarah is a fab teacher! Very knowledgeable, calm and helpful. There was no judgement at all about anything I said (which was a worry I had before coming). I’ll definitely be recommending Sarah and Happy Births to pregnant friends, family and colleagues.

I was very scared of giving birth and learnt hypnobirthing as a way to try to feel more confident. It really worked - I had a more empowering birth experience than I thought was possible. Thanks to Sarah, who instantly makes you feel welcome, relaxed and at ease. She’s such a great professional, who truly enjoys what she does, and continuously training and updating her knowledge to be the best she can be. Thank you so much Sarah, I can’t speak highly enough of you and your service! x

As a Dad-to-be, I was feeling a little worried about the process and my role. Now, having taken the course with Sarah, I now feel a lot calmer, knowing what to expect. I now know how I can keep myself calm, and how to help keep Laura relaxed throughout the whole process. I really enjoyed the breathing techniques, and the detailed explanations about each part of labour, and what to do during each stage. The classes are held in a very calming, comfortable location. Sarah is a friendly and calm teacher; she was very helpful with explaining different experiences.
