Hypnobirthing in Manchester. A few quotes to keep you inspired for your natural labour

As my hypnobirthing in Manchester clients already know, words can be very powerful in inducing positive states of mind. So I have selected some quotes to keep you inspired for your natural birth!

Birth is as safe as life gets.

Harriet Hartigan

Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

Barbara Katz Rothman

Sit! Walk! Stand! Squat! Get active – give birth.

– from a t-shirt

The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you.


Offer hugs, not drugs.

Adina Lebowitz

We’ve put birth in the same category as illness and disease and it’s never belonged there.

Carla Hartley, founder of Trust Birth and the Ancient Art Midwifery Institute

If I don’t know my options, I don’t have any.

Diana Korte

The truth for women living in a modern world is that they must take increasing responsibility for the skills they bring into birth if they want their birth to be normal. Making choices of where and with whom to birth is not the same as bringing knowledge and skills into your birth regardless of where and with whom you birth.

Common Knowledge Trust

I have been taught where women are free, we will learn how they give birth best. They will show us. They will trust us. Look at them and listen closely.

Dr. Michael Odent – Obstetrician

The more births I attend, the more I realise how much we disturb the birthing woman.

Gloria Lemay – Birth Attendant

The parallels between making love and giving birth are clear, not only in terms of passion and love, but also because we need essentially the same conditions for both experiences: privacy and safety.

Dr. Sarah Buckley

If we are to heal the earth, we must begin by healing birth.

Agnes Sallet Von Tannenberg

Fear can be overcome by faith.

Dr. Grantly Dick-Read – Childbirth Without Fear

If one went to the extreme of giving the patient the full details of mortality and morbidity related to cesarean section, most of them would get up and go out and have their baby under a tree.

– Dr. Dermot W. McDonald, Neel J. Medicolegal pressure, MDs’ lack of patience cited in cesarean‘epidemic.’ Ob.Gyn. News Vol 22 No 10
