Jenny’s HypnoBirthing Classes
Rayleigh and surrounding areas, SS6
I used HypnoBirthing (The Mongan Method) during my pregnancy and labour in September 2012 and could not imagine going through the most important part of my life without it. I was completely relaxed during my pregnancy and had no fears about my pending labour. I then had the most beautiful, wonderful home hypnobirth with my daughter in 2015, it was the best experience of my life. I want every woman to feel empowered when giving birth and with the understanding of hypnobirthing; birth can be achieved in shorter amount of time, without pain relief and without medical intervention.

One to One Midwives are an NHS approved provider of maternity services in Northeast Essex. One to One Midwives provide a community based midwifery service with continuity and choice at the heart of everything they do. When a woman first accesses One to One she is allocated a named midwife who will be the lead caregiver throughout her pregnancy, birth (if she chooses a homebirth) and for 6 weeks of postnatal care. The One to One midwife will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and when she is on holiday her ‘buddy’ will be available instead. Care takes place in the women’s homes at times to suit their needs and the vast majority of visits take place in the evening or at weekends to ensure that partners are also active participants in the care. There are no limits to the number of visits and the woman and midwife will agree how often the visits should take place to meet the individual needs of the family.
