Frida Detter, Founder of Hypnobaby
Hypnobabies: Odin, Ibsen & Monti
After 20 years in London i moved to Stockholm with my husband in 2013 where we live currently together with our three boys Odin (2013), Ibsen (2015), Monti (2017). When I was pregnant with my first in London I was nervous and worried about my birth, potential complications and uncontrollable pain. It wasn’t until a colleague of mine recommended me to look up Hypnobirthing when me and my husband felt a sense of hope that there could be an alternative to way to avoid the pain. And after attending the course, we actually looked forward to the birth! I’ve birthed all three boys calm and naturally with this method and have never had the need to use pain relief nor stitches. All boy’s heartbeats remained completely calm throughout the birth process. My husband felt he had a clear role throughout the process being responsible for all logistics, my comfort and liaising with the staff. We decided to birth our third boy at home, which was the most magical experience I’ve ever had. By 2015 I realised that the method was unknown in Sweden, I felt an urge to spread the word to every woman who would like a calm and positive birth experience.
The Hypnobaby Positive Birth Society was then founded by Frida Detter and runs group classes each month in Stockholm and Malmö. Frida is qualified to teach the KG Hypnobirthing course, the only Hypnobirthing course to be accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
