What is Hypnobirthing?

You’re expecting a baby and are doing an amazing job growing a whole entire human, go you!

Maybe you’ve been bombarded with other people’s not so positive views and stories of childbirth.

Maybe you have anxieties stemming from previous experiences.

Maybe you feel overwhelmed with what your choices are.

Maybe you want to shake off the feeling of fear and have an empowering and positive experience.


If any of these maybes struck a chord with you, hypnobirthing is definitely for you!


Hypnobirthing is the perfect way to prepare your mind and body for the arrival of your baby/babies. Its aim is to teach you incredibly effective techniques including relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis to help you and your birth partner navigate birth, even when it doesn’t go 100% according to plan.


Hypnobirthing will teach you how to let go of fear and show you how birth can be a wonderfully calm and positive thing to get excited about.

A little bit about me...

I'm Chelsea (she/her), a mum of 1 hypnobirthed little and the face behind Oshun Waves.


I love an impromptu kitchen dance party, creating plant-based yumminess and curling up with a good book.

I first came across hypnobirthing when I was pregnant in 2015. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first, but after reading into it and realising how much sense it made on a physiological level, I decided to give it a try. My birth didn’t go 100% to plan, but I had a wonderfully calm and positive experience. I was converted and have been raving about it ever since!

Fast forward a few years and my passion for birth and supporting women and birthing people has led me on a journey become a midwife and training with The Little Birth Company to become a hypnobirthing instructor.
