Do you often find yourself pushing aside your most exciting dreams, in an attempt to please other people or to do what is expected of you? Have you been thinking about Hypnobirthing for a while, but come up against resistance from well-meaning friends or family members - maybe even your own partner - who wonder what the hell you're on about now?!...
Today there is profound anecdotal evidence and scientific studies which suggest consuming the placenta can be just as beneficial for humans as it is for other mammals.

In order to get the best from 'the system' in which you find yourself, you need information and knowledge: you need to really understand the implications of the choices you may be required to make.

It makes such a difference. It brought Daddy and I even closer together as we practiced the relaxation exercises and talked about how we would like his birth to be. It helped us to feel so connected to your brother, even before we'd met him. Now, we're enjoying that feeling with you too.
