Hypnobirthing uses your ability to prepare your mind and body to work in harmony to achieve a calm and peaceful birth. Hypnobirthing allows you to remain relaxed and empowers you to be in control of your body and your birth.
The course encompasses easy to learn and use techniques including breathing, visualisation, deep relaxation and massage. Together we will use hypnosis to release any preconceived worries or fears you may have of birthing your baby.
Hypnobirthing provides you and your chosen birthing partner with the tools, resources and knowledge to achieve the best possible birth for you all. Empowerment and confidence are built as we explore together, how the body functions during birth, and how you can use the techniques to achieve a more efficient birthing experience.
Hypnobirthing actively involves the birth partner. The role of the birth partner is an integral and important part of the process. It can be immensely empowering to know you have played a positive role in the birth of the baby, and can be a wonderful starting point for bonding.
See my website for more information about the benefits of hypnobirthing for mum, dad and baby.
“Thanks to your hypnobirthing course, the birth of my darling daughter was a wonderful experience. Your workshop gave us the confidence to plan a home birth and we learnt so much on the workshop that I felt well prepared for all eventualities. I was unfortunate to have 3 days of regular mild contractions that would normally exhaust any expectant mother, but I managed to remain calm and unfazed throughout, listening to the hypnobirthing CD regularly, particularly at night to help me sleep.
When the real labour started I was so calm and in tune with my body that it actually felt like good fun - let the party begin! As the contractions intensified I did have a few moments of "Oh my God can I do this?" but my body had done the hard part and, with the CD on in
the background. I managed to keep the breathing going and she arrived after 4 hours of real labour. No stitches. and she had an apgar .score of 9 out of 10 within the first minute - a very healthy baby bursting with life (she was screaming when she was only halfway out as if to say Hello World I've arrived')
We got through it all with no pain relief (apart from some homeopathic Arnica early on) and I was absolutely elated for days! She is now 4 months and as vocal as those first moments showed! Thank you again for your course which gave me the confidence to do it our way and a way to really embrace the life changing experience of birth and motherhood.”
“I gave birth using the techniques you taught me. The whole experience was utterly amazing. I hired a private midwife and had my baby girl at home. I managed the labour on my own without giving a thought to pain relief, in silence and for the most part pretty motionless.
My midwife said she had never witnessed hypnobirthing working so successfully. I sat for 2 hours on a foot stool (apparently a difficult position to labour in!) and dilated to 10cm in an almost euphoric state.
I had to keep telling my husband and my midwife I was contracting, apparently I was just breathing and smiling with my eyes closed all the time. It felt as if I had just unlocked a big secret and it really was so easy to just let things flow. After 6 or 7 hours she was born under water in a birthing pool in my lounge.”
