Here you will find useful links to articles and videos which may help you on your pregnancy and HypnoBirthing journey. To learn more about pregnancy in Singapore, visit here. Below are also a list of the most recommended practitioners in various fields of pregnancy, birthing and parenting.
HypnoBirthing Water Birth at Home – UK
Opening Blossom – rose opening set to music, fantastic for visualisation
Birth Animation – see how the process of birth actually occurs
Baby positioning Imagery
Visualisation has an important role in building confidence and influencing outcomes in HypnoBirthing. These images nicely demonstrate the difference between occiput anterior (OA) position which we want for birthing and occiput posterior (OP) which we do not want for birthing. If using visualisation to turn a breech baby, ensure you are using the OA image.

USEFUL CONTACTS AND SERVICES
There are many people offering their services in pre and post natal care in Singapore. I have taken some of the load off going through recommendations to bring you a list of the most frequently recommended people and businesses. Please note that these are not all personal recommendations so I cannot vouch for their services, however others have. I am not receiving kick backs or commission from any of these people I promise.
