'I don't know what to say'. 'I'll just say the wrong thing'. 'What can you say in this situation?' 'I can't find the words'. 'I just wish I knew what to do'. Words don't instantly come into thought at the time a baby is taken; only gut wrenching pain and confusion can fill a mouth with cries of raw, inexplicable heartbreak. What so many people start to wonder once the initial shock subsides is, 'I don't know what to say'. It comes with any loss, but there is something that hi
I have worked with many IVF couples this summer. Below is Leanne and Matt's inspiring story... 'Hello Aimee, this is long overdue but I wanted to share my birth story/review with you.
Having gone through a successful IVF cycle I really wanted to give Hypnobirthing a go. I chose to go with The Mother Hut simply because I liked the website and the way you came across regarding Hypnobirthing.

Congratulations to the lovely Louise and Haroon on the birth of Sophia. This birth story is so important; it isn't what some people would consider a 'proper' Hypnobirth to be. The one thing I say to every couple before they start their course is that Hypnobirthing isn't about being drug free. The aim of your time with me is to prepare you for different birth paths and whichever one your birth takes, you will feel you had control in it and you understand all the choices made s
When you are pregnant, most will think about birth at some stage. You know it's going to come out one of two ways, you know your fanny will take a bit of a beating, you won't be able to drive for a while when you have a section, but actually, that's where my thoughts around birth stopped. When I got pregnant with my first, I was lucky enough to share it with one of my best friends and my sister. We often moaned about heartburn and itching skin and dodgy hips, but I can't reca
