Welcome to The Wise Hippo Kent and Surrey
(Hypnobirthing and antenatal classes, and baby massage)
I'm Sarah and live in Sevenoaks and am the founder of the Wise Hippo Kent and Surrey. I have three beautiful children born using the Wise Hippo hypnobirthing and antenatal programme.
Having had a caesarean, vaginal births and dealing with baby loss, I can teach you how to overcome your fears and have a wonderful birth experience, as I have done it myself.
I offer group hypnobirthing classes in Sevenoaks, and private one to ones in Kent, Surrey, London and Essex, where I will come to you. I also offer online classes.
My hypnobirthing and antenatal group courses are 4 * 2-hour classes, although I have lots of other options available, that may be better for you. See my courses page for more information on all our classes or contact me if you have a specific class request and I will accommodate your requirements.
I also teach baby massage over 4 sessions, which provides a lovely opportunity to continue the bond with your baby, whilst relaxing and meeting other mums with a cup of tea.
Welcome to our website
This is my family and I just love teaching expectant families about the possibilities of not being fearful of birth or moving on from a previous birth or pregnancy experience to have a positive birth, as I have that personal experience.
Imagine spending time at the beach or your favourite place in nature anytime you wanted, well, I can teach you how to do this and learn a life changing set of skills, tools and techniques that can be used during labour and birth, beyond. It involves using a mixture of visualisation, relaxation and deep breathing techniques, as well as important antenatal education.
Baby massage continues this relaxation for you and your baby, helping release oxytocin to make baby feel good, assist digestion and their general wellbeing.
Why choose our hypnobirthing and antenatal classes?
Hypnobirthing can help your manage stress hormones, such as adrenalin, and reduce anxiety, which can lead you to have a calmer birth. Managing stress enables you to reduce fear and pain experienced during labour, and hypnobirthing has been shown to make labour shorter. Hypnobirthing and birth preparation can benefit you after birth too, with evidence showing that it can lower your chance of postnatal depression.
Hypnobirthing can also help your birth partner play a more active role during labour and feel good about your birth.
Our classes have made over 500 parents feel that the hypnobirthing and antenatal education they receive from their incredibly supportive Wise Hippo teacher was invaluable. It is the dedication, knowledge, and passion that makes The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme a popular birth choice when looking for great antenatal preparation. Also, I have used hypnobirthing for my three children and have had positive birth experiences, and I would love to share that with you too.
From our amazing stats here, it is very clear to see that no matter what type of birth was achieved, most felt positive and extremely satisfied with the outcome.
