I always think it’s nice to be able to put a face to the name, so here I am!

Helen Knox. BA Hons, Dip IIHHT. Wise Hippo birthing instructor, Doula and mother to four wonderful children (yes, I am biased!).

I have been working for the past fifteen years as an holistic therapist and in post birth support, helping new mums, babies and families settle into a happy routine that is right for them. With the experiences of my own births – one c-section and three VBAC’s – I often wondered if there was more than just luck involved in having a calm, relaxed and generally more empowered way to birth.

It turns out there is!!

I was introduced to The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme by my lovely niece who, feeling traumatised during the birth of her first baby then went on to have a healing and wonderful Wise Hippo experience with her second. Her birth story was so powerful that I decided to train to become an antenatal educator and bring the benefits of this programme to North Devon.

As a qualified Wise Hippo Birthing Instructor, I appreciate that every woman will have individual needs, wants and concerns with regards to their baby's birth and I teach with this in mind. You can then prepare for birth in a way that feels right for you. The deep relaxation techniques that are learnt will calm even the most anxious mummies-to-be, empowering them to trust their bodies, labour without fear achieving the right birth on the day.

I am based in Braunton, North Devon, and cover the whole North Devon area.
