    Catrine Rogers - Hypnobirthing practitioner

    07973427159 / catrine@babiesinwaiting.co.uk


    Like many expectant mothers, I was very apprehensive about labour and birth but I was keen to find a different approach to help achieve the natural birthing experience I wanted. I didn’t know where to start until I discovered Babies in Waiting, but as soon as I started their unique Hypnobirthing course I knew it was just what I had been looking for.

    It was such an amazing experience to give birth without the need for pain relief. All the practise, with the help of my husband, meant that I was able to forget my fears and have a birth which was both joyful and empowering and left me in a wonderful place to bond with my perfect little baby daughter.

    It has been a natural progression for me to want to share this knowledge with other mums and dads and I truly believe it is every woman’s right to have the birth she wants, free from fear and full of joy.
