Hypnobirthing: what it’s all about

Nine months ago I knew very little about pregnancy and maternity matters (in fact, I didn’t really know how to change a nappy!). This all changed very rapidly as soon as Adam (my husband) and I found out we were expecting a baby boy. Before I knew it I had entered a world of books […]
