Our mission is to educate, nurture and inspire you through your pregnancy, birth and beyond


Through a number of services offered to expectant and new families throughout Essex and Hertfordshire.



   “Hypnobirthing is not only about producing babies, it's about creating strong, confident mothers, who learn instinctively to trust themselves and, by using their inner wisdom, make choices that are right for themselves and their families.”
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme


    “I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for preparing me for something I thought I wouldn't be able to do, I found the classes an amazing help, they taught me to stay focused and relaxed and I will be recommending them to everyone.”
Claire & Peter Smith - Chelmsford, Essex


    “Strength, calmness, self confidence and belief, friendship, unconditional love and respect. These are just some of the things our doula Steph brought to our pregnancy and birth experience. The hypnobirthing techniques empowered and supported us to create the birth we wanted, with no other pain relief required to birth our 10lb daughter.”
Abigail & Buster Todd, Ipswich
