Hypno-Birthing

As a professional Hypno-Birthing Practitioner, I am delighted to offer Hypno-Birthing classes to expectant mothers and their birth partners. We will teach you a number of helpful techniques to ensure that during your pregnancy and birth you are as calm, confident and in control as possible.

There are many benefits of Hypno-Birthing including helping you to feel more confident about giving birth, and overcoming any nervousness you may have. We can also help you deal with any unhelpful beliefs or fears, including de-traumatising previous experiences (or phobias) if necessary.  Your sleep will improve with the benefit of hypnotherapy, and you will be given a free CD/MP3 download at your Initial Consultation to begin this process. This will also mean you have improved energy levels.

Hypnotherapy can help you to engage more fully with the process of giving birth, so that you can remain focused and in control, and you feel more able to trust that your body knows how to give birth. It can help to lower blood pressure, and allow you to deal more effectively with pain. You will learn breathing techniques, and self-hypnosis techniques to use throughout the labour and birth. Pain creates resistance in the uterine muscles, so the more relaxed and calm you are, the more strongly these muscles will contract.

Hypno-Birthing can also help your birthing partner to be prepared and relaxed for the birth. They can join you during the sessions and learn the techniques you will use, as well as how to use trance and other techniques to help keep you calm and relaxed during the birth. Your partner will be able to take an active and supportive role, and provide strength and assistance throughout the birth.

Hypno-Birthing also has advantages for the baby. If the birth is relatively calm, the baby will tend to stay calm, quiet and alert after the birth. If the mother is calm, the baby will benefit from higher levels of oxygenation and reduced levels of stress hormones.  The more relaxed the mother is, the more beneficial it is to the baby. And a calm birth greatly assists with the bonding that takes place afterwards.

At your free Initial Consultation, we will give you a general relaxation CD/MP3 download to get the process started. After a few sessions, we will provide a specific childbirth CD/MP3 download, which will allow you to learn and practice the self-hypnosis techniques you will use during the birth. The sessions will be informative and positive, allowing you to move forward and prepare not only for the birth, but also for motherhood.
