What mums say...

“Soraya was a very flexible teacher who was happy spending more time on areas that we were interested in or felt we would like support with. She equipped us with everything we needed and gave us the ability to transfer the practical skills to any situation. From my birth experience, I would highly recommend Soraya and her unique approach to hypnobirthing.”
