My partner and I completed a 1:1 course with Pooja in latter pregnancy. I originally contacted Pooja
as I was apprehensive about the prospect of a natural birth and had heard Hypnobirthing would help me
control my nerves!
Before the course, I had limited knowledge of Hypnobirthing, but Pooja spent a lot of time working from the basics. Pooja talked us through the stages of labour and the anatomy of birth as well as informing us of the choices we have in labour and how to discuss these with our midwife.
Pooja also worked through the breathing techniques and visualisations with both of us and showed us various breathing patterns for the different stages of labour, enabling me to choose which I feel most comfortable with when the time comes!
Since the course, I have continued with the breathing techniques and relaxations and feel more confident with them every day. I feel the course has made both my partner and I a lot more confident about the birth, and
much more relaxed! Pooja is very professional and has a great way with people – you instantly feel
relaxed with her. Since the course, Pooja has kept in touch and is always on hand if you have any
last minute moments of madness!

Pooja is kind, caring and empathetic towards families and their situations. She works hard to empower parents to lead their own path and is a great support in the background when needed. Pooja is realistic and honest ensuring families have the facts they want. I’m sure this tailor made package will go over and above any of your expectations. The after care for the first year is an amazing option to have in the background should you need it. Pooja is a wonderful person so excited that she has decided to take on this new venture and to start seeing the benefits to families across those very tender first few moments. You will be in safe hands.
Pooja has great knowledge on hypnobirthing and is not one to let anyone leave, from her group, without feeling reassured and comfortable with how their birth can be.
I have known Pooja for some time now and she is very caring and understanding of others. The fact that she implied hypnobirthing techniques to her own birth means that she can easily relate to others and support and guide them the best way she knows how.
Pooja is a very approachable young woman with a lot of drive behind her. If she is unsure of anything she is more than willing to go the extra mile to get answers for you and will not let you down.
Pooja is such a caring and understanding person. she will listen to all and try to relate to it.
I was a nervous first time mum without any Mum friends and once I had met Pooja not only did she give me confidence, she reassured me that everything I was doing was right for my son and I wasn't the only mum in the world to have doubts about what I was doing.
she has a great knowledge of hypnobirthing and is very passionate about it and that's exactly what you want from a trainer.
Last of all .... She's amazing!!!
Hi I just had to let you know my amazing news I had an appointment with my consultant today and I can have a water birth!!! So happy and relieved!! No more consultant appointments just midwife antenatal led care!! I expressed my concerns and fears and they listened! I would never have had the confidence had I not been exposed to your class! The first step to my positive birth!! Xxx

Pooja is amazing! Hypnobirthing has really helped settle our perspective of birth we are feeling a lot more relaxed and confident since we feel a lot more informed about the entire process and the meditation tracks as well as the other materials are great! We cannot thank and recommend Pooja enough! She has helped us both so much with all the tips and techniques from the classes.

Pooja has been so hospitable and caring. We opted to go for a 1:1 private class and it definitely worked so much better for us as we were able to discuss personal things in her presence and she was able to be there to support us. We not only found the mechanics of birth helpful but the ways in which to manage the surges, breathing techniques have really helped me to relax and feel more prepared for birth. We now are not afraid of the unknown but excited to know that we can support ourselves and have the confidence to ask questions so we can make the right choices for us.
Pooja's knowledge on postnatal care has been invaluable. As first time parents, it's not just the birth that we were feeling apprehensive about, but also about how to manage our new lives as parents. Pooja took her time to explain the early days and answered all our questions. We could not recommend her enough. You will definitely be in safe hand.

After having completed the course, my anxiety and negative thoughts regarding labour have been replaced with excitement to experience one of the most empowering moments of my life as a woman. Whereas before I was just focusing on the labour, now my thoughts are focused on the end goal where I visualize gazing at my baby for the first time, a thought which keeps me thinking positively.
Hearing and watching calm birth stories has shifted my perspective on what a birth can and should look like. Listening to the positive affirmations and practicing the breathing techniques daily has now become an integral part of my life to the point that I can no longer imagine my day without this brilliant self-care routine which is proving so beneficial for my and my baby's wellbeing- the baby loves it too!
I could not have asked for a better teacher than Pooja. She was approachable, kind, caring, always showing a genuine interest in answering my queries and going out of her way to understand my anxieties and working with me to get to the solution. Initially I was worried how the 1:1 course would pan out as due to Covid19 the classes would be happening online, however Pooja made sure the material was posted on time and the online classes felt very much in person thanks to Pooja's relaxed and easy- going attitude.

I've just had the most AMAZING, positive birth experience with my second child (after a horror story with my first) following the techniques and exercises that this lovely lady has taught me.
Pooja is worth every single penny and more!
If it wasnt for the techniques you taught me, theres not a chance in hell I could have managed the drug free, natural birth that I had and personally think I managed damn well with.
I got my birthing partner and midwives on board too, to help remind me when I started letting fear and panic take over, and between us, I managed the whole labour and birth natural and pretty much drug free (other than some codine at the start of contractions and pethadine to help me get some sleep during later contractions).
If you know you're wanting to give Hypnobirthing a go, but aren't sure/are curious or even want any more info on what it actually is (not weird voodoo like I originally thought), then get in touch with Pooja. She has been nothing but hospitable.
I highly recommend both Pooja and the courses she offers.

I would 100% recommend Pooja and her hypnobirthing course. The course gave me a good insight into understanding my options and allowed me to have an instrumental free birth that was calm and with no pain relief after a traumatic first birth ending in emergency c section. The tools and techniques she taught also helped in later stages of pregnancy as my anxiety increased and pains occurred more often this allowed me to calm down on a number of occasions and have the birth I desired. I am so grateful to her x
