What mums are saying about placenta encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation | Brisbane HypnoBirthing

What HypnoBirthing preparation really brings | a practitioners perspective

By Bree Taylor Molyneaux As a HypnoBirthing practitioner of over six years, I have experienced and taught many different couples in many different birthing situations.  What HypnoBirthing provides is a wonderful opportunity for nearly all birthing couples, so I thought it would be nice to explain my personal perspective on that a little more.
