As the year draws to a close, it's a time for reflection and gratitude, especially when we look at the birth outcomes that The Wise Hippo community has consistently achieved. Despite the shifts in national birth statistics, which indicate a rise in inductions and interventions, our programme and its resources has steadfastly maintained its record of outstanding results.

Important Update: The NHS national average statistics for interventions, as shown in this infographic, are based on 2021 data. Please be aware that the intervention rates have significantly increased since then.What are they in your area and ask why? 

A New Standard in Positive Birth Outcomes

Welcome to a world where birthing experiences are transformed into stories of empowerment, confidence, and profound joy. The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme is more than just a method—it's a movement that's reshaping how parents-to-be envision and experience childbirth. Our programme's birth outcomes are not just numbers; they're narratives of success, and they outshine the UK national averages in every chapter.

Our Remarkable Birth Outcomes

Let's delve into the statistics that underscore the efficacy of preparing The Wise Hippo way:

  • 92% of Wise Hippo Parents Had the Right Birth on the Day: Nearly all participants felt their birth experience was the 'right' one, suggesting that The Wise Hippo equips parents with the tools to create a birth experience that aligns with their vision and circumstances, a stark contrast to the national average, where many parents may feel their birth experience deviated from their expectations.

  • 98% of Mothers Felt More Confident After Attending: Confidence is key, and The Wise Hippo is the master locksmith. This staggering statistic reflects the transformative power of our programme, where confidence soars, dwarfing the national confidence rates post-traditional antenatal classes.

  • 96% of Birth Partners Felt More Confident: Birth partners are the unsung heroes in the birthing story. With The Wise Hippo, they become knowledgeable advocates, ready to support with a confidence that transcends the norm.

  • 94% Reported Improved Pregnancy Anxiety Levels: Anxiety casts a long shadow over many pregnancies. The Wise Hippo's approach shines a light of calm, significantly reducing or eliminating pregnancy anxiety, which often goes unaddressed in standard care.


The Wise Hippo Difference: Creating a New Narrative

Why are these numbers so significant? They represent real-life experiences, real positive changes, and real families who've felt empowered and satisfied with their birth experiences. Compared to the national average, where outcomes can be unpredictable and often less favourable, The Wise Hippo stands as a beacon of what's possible when education, preparation, and support converge in harmony.

Transforming Birth, One Family at a Time

The Wise Hippo isn't just changing how babies are born; it's changing how parents are born. With each class, we're contributing to a new paradigm of birthing—one where parents feel in control, supported, and profoundly positive about their experiences.

If you're ready to be part of this change and to give yourself the gift of a birthing experience that exceeds expectations, The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme awaits. Join the ranks of satisfied parents who chose to rewrite their birth stories with confidence and knowhow.

With Warmth and Wisdom
