The Wise Hippo
Instructor Training

The Wise Hippo is a new approach to birthing. We believe a ‘positive birth’ experience is a state of mind, it’s not defined by what happens during labour and birth but by how a woman feels about her baby’s birth. Because of this belief we are able to teach skills and knowledge that empower women to trust their instincts and ensure that their baby has the right birth on the day.

We respect that every woman has the right to choose the birth that she wants for her child (whatever that may be) and we trust that our clients know what is right for them. We therefore don’t tell our clients what they ‘should’ do, we don’t offer advice and we don’t give them our personal opinion.

There is no one right way to give birth with The Wise Hippo only the right way for each individual mum and her baby.

What we do is provide our clients with a fun programme full of factual information about labour and birth, along with simple to follow tools and techniques, so that they are able to:


  • Alleviate any fears.

  • Build their confidence.

  • Become experts in relaxation.

  • Ensure that they are always the ones in control of their baby’s birth (whatever turn their birthing takes).

Our clients leave our courses feeling excited, empowered and confident that they have the skills to remain calm, relaxed and in control throughout their labour and birth.

Yes, we are incredibly passionate about our mums getting the birth that they know is the right one for themselves and their babies!

Do you share that same passion?

Would you love your Clients to feedback 100% of the time that they know their baby had the right birth, that they feel positive about their experience even if things didn’t go as they hoped?
