Meet Freya, your virtual birth partner from The Positive Birth Company! Freya will coach you through every single surge with a simple breathing technique and visualisation. She will help you relax between surges with a mix of guided relaxations, positive affirmations, gentle music and calming visualisations. Freya makes it easy for you to keep track of your surges and you can visit the log at any point to see how frequently your surges are coming and how long they are lasting. Freya will also let you know when your labour is established and when it might be a good time to contact your midwife. You will never birth alone with Freya by your side.


In hypnobirthing we refer to contractions as surges, as a ‘surge’ more accurately describes the sensation you’ll experience when in labour. Freya is the ONLY hypnobirthing-friendly contraction timer on the app store, designed specifically with hypnobirthing mums in mind, but can be used by anyone.


You can also use Freya in pregnancy to help you relax and prepare for your birth. In fact the more you listen to the guided relaxations and positive affirmations, the more familiar they will become and the more effective they will be at helping you relax when it comes to birth. Positive affirmations have been proven to change the way your mind works and listening regularly will help you feel less anxious and more confident in the lead up to birth.


We know the more relaxed you are during birth, the more oxytocin you will produce. Oxytocin helps your uterus to work efficiently, making labour faster and more comfortable.


You can also use Freya post-birth any time you feel you could benefit from taking some deep breaths or need some help finding your zen. Everything you learn through using Freya - mindfulness exercises, breathing techniques, the benefits of taking time out - are skills for life.

Great calming experience

We had a playlist planned, but when I put this app on during my wife's labour, she loved it & didn't budge from it. With me timing when she called out, it helped focus her attention on the breathing, helped us figure out when the right time to go into the hospital was, and even keep track there for knowing when to expect the next one. The Apple Watch companion app was perfect as well as I didn't have to keep the phone close, I could just tap go & stop on the watch as I supported my wife through the experience.

This technique works so well

I found The Positive Birthing Company online course after a friend of ours told us about how much hypnobirthing helped her during her labour. After finding the techniques taught by Siobhan so affirming, powerful and helpful, I purchased the Freya app. I find that it completely assists me to find peace, calm and relaxation within my body and my partner is benefiting from the breathing techniques too. I’ll definitely be using the Freya app with headphones when I go into labour in a few weeks to assist in supporting my body to naturally give birth to our first child.

Great App!

I’m using this app as I get closer to my birth (38 weeks today), using the breathing techniques and affirmations daily.
My 10 year old loves doing them with me and I find Siobhan’s voice very soothing!
Looking forward to using the surge timer when labour begins and as a side note I recommend taking a look at her Positive Birthing Company Course. It was so informative and having had previous birth trauma, I now feel confident in my mind and body to move through labour with ease.
Thank you so much!
