- Mindful Birthing
Hypnobirthing empowers both mother and father and has the most profound effect on the baby which lasts a lifetime. Learn the confidence and the simplicity of a natural and calm birth. Your body is designed to give birth efficiently and comfortably so that birth can be the most wonderful and empowering experience of your life.
Over the last few years as an independent midwife I have had an increasing number of encounters with clients who have had truly beautiful, gentle and calm births. The common factor in these births seems to be that they have attended your hypnobirthing workshop.
Keep up the good work, I will be recommending your service to all my clients!

Hypnobirthing is a well-established and well recognised, logical complete antenatal education programme with a focus on natural birth. It uses the power of positive language to combine easy to learn methods of deep relaxation, breathing techniques, visualisation and affirmative positive thinking to reduce anxiety, stress, fatigue and fear, and, as a result, also reduce pain.
As part of learning hypnobirthing techniques, you become informed about what happens to your body during labour and birth, giving you the tools to make the best decisions for you in consultation with your medical advisors. This is combined with the important work of releasing your fear and building your confidence.
The result is that you are given back the opportunity and confidence to be in control of your own birthing experience.Hypnobirthing does not promise a perfect outcome or to totally eliminate discomfort, but it does empower you to remain calm and enjoy a positive birthing experience.
The gentle approach
The gentle approach HypnoBirthing offers women a wonderful opportunity to prepare confidently and calmly for the birth of their babies. I thoroughly recommend attending a course to all expectant parents.

How birth should be for everyone
I had heard of hypnobirthing prior to starting my midwifery training but since being a student midwife I have seen the powerful effects of relaxation and normality of birth versus the totally differently managed labour ward care. This has heightened my desire for normality and increased by interest in hypnobirthing.
