A fantastic, relaxing and informative 3 days with Onie at Knotstressed. I have learned exactly what I had hoped to and can’t wait to put their fabulous techniques into practice. It has enhanced both my professional and personal life. I would highly recommend the course to all parents to-be and to midwives, birth educators and doulas alike.

I did the Relax and Breathe Birthing instructor training course with Onie in January 2016. I have to say the whole experience was fantastic. As a qualified midwife I spent two (and a half) days learning the Instructor training and I have really shopped around for this, I mean obsessive internet trawling, weighing up all the courses and companies available to train with. I chose this course and travelled from the far away lands of Nottingham and it was absolutely worth it.

I came away with renewed belief in the possibility of a relaxed, calm birth and the confidence to teach precious skills for birth to women and couples, either on a one to one basis or in a group. It’s great because there is no strict routine to the course content, it is flexible and you can present it in a way which suits you best.

Onie and Jenny have put together a jam packed curriculum that promotes a calm natural birth experience with practical skills in breathing, relaxation, visualisations, affirmations, anchoring and grounding techniques, massage, shiatsu and active birth positions. What more could you possibly want? They provide excellent communication and follow on support, including all supplementary material needed to get started.

I’m so, so grateful that they have been so generous with all their knowledge and information gathering, for both myself as a trainer and for the couples who will attend for Relax and Breathe birthing.
