No matter how you birth your baby, feel calm and safe with hypnobirthing.

Your Baby, Your Birth is a truly modern hypnobirthing audiobook for all births. 

In-demand hypnobirthing coach Hollie de Cruz provides you with the skills and tools to make any birth feel safe, calm, connected and empowering. Drawing on her experience working with new mums, including Fearne Cotton and Giovanna Fletcher, Hollie de Cruz helps you prepare for a positive (not 'perfect') birth experience and approach motherhood with confidence in yourself and your instincts. 

Your Baby, Your Birth will teach you:

  • That birth is safe - listen to your body, embrace the changes, prepare your mind and relax during pregnancy.
  • Exercises and breathing techniques for labour and birth for you and your birth partner, along with guided meditations to keep you calm and engaged.
  • How to trust your instincts, understand your body and baby and make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Hollie de Cruz, creator of the award-winning yesmum positive affirmation cards, is renowned for demystifying hypnobirthing, and her down-to-earth, realistic approach is highly sought after.  

Whatever kind of birth you are planning, let Hollie de Cruz provide you with a set of deep relaxation, mindfulness and meditation tools for an empowering experience.

No MP3 tracks otherwise great

This audiobook has been great to listen to, I feel I have learnt a lot and will be listening again and again over the next few months to practice the exercises and get ready for a calm and empowered birth!
Only problem is it says it comes with the relaxation MP3 but I don’t have it....?

A must read for all Mums and partners

For a first time mum-to-be this book has provided me with strength and empowerment going through my first pregnancy and into my first birth. It is a very relateable, easy-to-read book dedicated to easing a mothers journey. Hollys celebration of women has made me feel strong and powerful and I will continue to practise these techniques far and beyond birth. Thank you for a wonderful read and a new way of life.

Quite repetitive

Some very good points and theory which I enjoyed but for me it just felt too long and repetitive and therefore lost some of its gravitas.

A must for every woman (not just the first timers) due to embrace childbirth!

Great listen - not ‘fluffy’.
Incredibly informative, professional and reassuringly educational. Thank you so much for this insight

Absolutely fantastic!

Absolutely loved it! Highly recommend it for anyone interested in hypnobirthing. I'm a first time mum and it really has put my mind at ease. Will definitely be using the techniques and am actually excited about birth now!

Easy to listen to, very informative, loved it

Love the MP3 downloads, the voice is very soothing and easy to listen to, very relatable and makes you feel very optimistic about birth. Teaches you a lot about how to control and manage breathing for less pain during birth.

Highly recommend it for any mum-to-be

This book really have me a powerful understanding of birth and realisation that it doesn't need to be the stereotypical painful, stressful experience. I'm trying to practice as much as I can and have done an NHS course as well, after reading this book. I'm now looking forward to Birthing my little baby girl rather than fearing it.

The only thing that's knocked the performance off a 5* is Holly's tone during the two meditative sessions she's recorded. She speaks beautifully in the book, but changing her tone to be all relaxing and slow is a little cringe. Sorry Holly!

Partner's perspective

Gave me a greater understanding of everything that can happen and much more confidence leading up to birthing our child. I wish we had this when our first child came along. Highly recommended.

Genuinely so grateful for this book

I’ve just had the most incredible birth thanks to this book. After listening to the audio version, which was so easy to listen to, I went straight out and bought a paper copy to have as well.

My son was born earlier this week, at home, in the birth pool while I was completely in control.
After my first medicalised labour I wanted to explore other options and this book honestly opened up so many of these options for me.

Even if you’re not sold on the idea of hypnobirthing, you should still read this book as Hollie details so much valuable information about your options for birth and pregnancy.

The breathing techniques and knowledge about how my body would cope so efficiently helped me remain completely serene throughout birth.

I would highly recommend anyone who is pregnant or thinking about pregnancy to listen/read this book.
