How to pronounce حسيبة

My friend and I want to use the name Hassiba (حسيبة) for our book, but we want to make sure we're pronouncing it correctly. Could someone give me the phonetic spelling in English? Thank you!

Not sure what that means but without marks it can be said in different ways:
7asíbah
7assíbah
7issíbah

with 7 for H or ح fricative sound.
