I attended Joanna's class at Tollcross for 5 weeks. I am having my baby this week or else I would still be there! Joanna has a very friendly, kind manner and is very easy to talk to and ask questions (no matter how silly or irrational you may feel!) She has a very calming attitude and makes you feel at ease. I would recommend this class to anyone expecting a baby and looking for some light exercise in the water followed by a wee chat about anything at all! Thanks Joanna xx
I highly recommend both Aquanatal and hypnobirthing with Joanna. The aquanatal is great and it's really helpful being able to ask Joanna all sorts of questions about pregnancy and birth. It's lovely to meet people who know how you feel and get a good chat. The water has been great for my pelvic girdle pain too. Give it a go! Joanna's hypnobirthing course was brilliant for me and allowed me to have the positive birth that we planned. She came to my house weekly and we discussed what to expect during labour, how to remain calm and focussed to allow my body to do what it should naturally. She gave me relaxation tracks to listen to which really helped me to relax during pregnancy while also ensuring my subconscious was preparing for birth. As a result of this course I had a positive natural pool birth which was quick, calm and well planned. If it wasn't for Joanna's hypnobirthing course then I wouldn't have had such a positive birth. I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering hypnobirthing.
I attended Joanna's pregnancy relaxation course and highly recommend. I found it such a valuable space to discuss, learn and most importantly relax. The breathing techniques, guided relaxation and visualisation have helped me to prepare for birth and complimented my weekly pregnancy yoga class too. thank you Joanna! great knowledge and a lovely relaxed, positive approach.
During my pregnancy I booked onto a 4 week hypnobirthing course with Joanna where we had arranged to do the classes at my parents house, it was the best experience in giving myself and my birthing partners (partner and mum) the knowledge and skills to help me through my labor when the time came. It was especially good that we could arrange it within my family home as my partner is quite shy and would have felt out of his comfort zone if we where in a class full of strangers. It was very personal experience and well worth it.
Joanna is very knowledgeable and passionate about all things birth and empowering woman in making the right informed choices for themselves. Any questions or doubts that I or my birthing partners had where answered confidentiality. I also attended aquanatal at tollcross and care for a new born class with Joanna. Both where essential parts in my pregnancy that gave me confidence I was doing everything right, this only made better by the support of Joanna. Many thanks and I will definitely be booking myself and my wee one onto baby massage 💜 xxx
I had the pleasure of attending Joanna’s relaxation in pregnancy course and care of the newborn workshop.
I would highly recommend both. Joanna has a lovely calming, compassionate manor. She made it easy to ask questions and put myself and my husband at ease. I will look out for her classes in the future.
Feeling very positive and excited for birth having gone to Joanna’s hypnobirthing course. Lots of facts and discussion about what will actually happen and feel so much more clued up and calmer. Excellent experience!
I attended Joanna’s Pregnancy relaxation classes for 6 weeks and can not recommend them enough! I was terrified at the thought of giving birth and after only my first class I left feeling empowered and ensured that I could do this, better than that...I was built to do this! Her classes were a fantastic space for me to unwind, gain valuable knowledge and confidence in myself and my ability to bring my little boy safely and lovingly into this world. Since my relaxation classes have ended I’ve felt a huge gap in my weekly activities and truly miss Joanna’s calm and reassuring company! I have now booked her hypnobirthing class and will be starting her aquanatal classes this coming week! Thank you for having such a positive influence on my first pregnancy experience!
I would like to highly recommend Aquanatal and Hypnobirthing with Joanna. Aquanatal was the light exercise I needed and Joanna was always so motivated and positive. The discussions after the pool sessions were great as it was lovely to meet mums to be and speak to Joanna about questions that had been niggling me. Hypnobirthing with Joanna was one of the best things that I did as it helped to focus on what I wanted for the birth of my baby and also helped me to relax and feel in control of the decisions I was making. When it came to the birth of my baby I used the techniques Joanna went through with me and created my birthing space which helped with the positive birthing of my baby even when the birth did not go as planned. The support and advice Joanna gave me was invaluable and I am so thankful to have had her throughout my pregnancy and after the birth of my son xxx
