I hope your pregnancy is going well. The chances are if you are reading this you are probably looking for something to alleviate your anxieties surrounding pregnancy and birth. You are not alone. From the moment you start trying to get pregnant through to realisation that you are pregnant; most minds become a rollercoaster of worries, questions and decisions. (Mixed with joy and excitement!)
So what do you already know about pregnancy and birth? Some women may have chequered memories of birth education from school days, others learn from mothers and family, some remember birth stories from friends and colleagues, and others learn through television and other media. Perhaps you already have your own birth experience?
Birth knowledge varies from woman to woman, but generally the concept of fear, pain and anxiety resonate with most. In plain speaking: Many women are scared of birth - Hypnobirthing can truly help with this.
Hypnobirthing provides a natural alternative to a medicalised birth.
For any woman who is looking for a positive birth experience. Hypnobirthing is tried & tested. I have personally supported many women & their birth partners and what's more I have first hand experience of hypnobirthing with two wonderful instinct and normalised births.

Some women spend the whole 9 months of their pregnancy with the bittersweet anticipation of their baby’s birth looming over them. Many women never even consider that giving birth could be anything but ‘horrendous’. If you are still reading, you have just found the opportunity of giving birth another way. Birth can be a calm and positive experience.
Antenatal relaxation & preparation is the key to achieving a positive birth experience. There are excellent locally run NHS and NCT classes which address many practical elements of pregnancy and birth such as bathing and feeding your baby. Traditional parent craft classes also address the medicalised side of birth - such as hospital policy, pain relief options, and give you the opportunity to look around the hospital facilities.
Hypnobirthing offers a natural alternative to pain relief. Hypnosis can empower you to experience a positive birth without drugs and embrace a natural birthing experience. Techniques can be used no matter how your birth unfolds - the aim is to remain in a calm and positive mindset.
Hypnobirthing does not guarantee a pain free birth (though for some women this is entirely possible).
Sessions will be focused on:
- Reframing limiting beliefs and let go of fears surrounding birth
- Understanding the mind-body connection
- How hypnosis will work for you...
- Birthing in rest and relax mode
- Breathing techniques
- Setting the scene
- Releasing tensions
- Informed choice
