I also run a private Facebook group where you can find even more Hypnobirthing stories than the ones featured here. It’s also a forum of Hypnobirthing families to share ideas, experiences and encourage each other. There is a second page called E17 Hypnomums Social which has social events on it. Once you’ve signed up to Hypnobirthing I can then add you into these groups if you have a Facebook account.
