Learn about the magic of birth and eliminate the fear, tension, pain cycle using deep relaxation, guided imagery, visualisation and special breathing techniques.
My courses emphasise the importance of eliminating the fear, tension, pain cycle using deep relaxation, guided imagery, visualisation and special breathing techniques. I teach Hypnobirthing in a down to earth, easily accessible way. Nobody gets hypnotised! Honestly!
What is Hypnobirthing?
With a Hypnobirthing course you will learn how to use your body’s own natural instinct for birthing to achieve a positive and empowering birth. This tried and tested technique helps you to avoid fear and tension in labour. Through self hypnosis to induce deep relaxation, you will learn how to remain calm but in control throughout a natural and often shorter labour. Hypnobirthing is a gentle start in the world to your baby as you learn pre and post-natal bonding techniques. Your partner will be an active part of your birth preparation, during the labour they will be an essential part of the process.
In the Western world we are conditioned to approach childbirth with fear; we see many examples in films and hear many stories of women screaming in agony for hours. We also hear stories about births that became out of control and ended up with highly medicalised procedures, leaving women feeling upset and let down.
Hypnobirthing teaches women easy techniques to achieve deep relaxation, they learn how important certain hormones are in labour and how to get them working efficiently. Women can feel empowered by their ability at the birth, 2nd and 3rd time mums often call it a “healing experience”.
The course also teaches partners their really important role. They become confident in their knowledge and learn a toolkit to support the mothers in labour. Both partners attend the classes if possible and the birthing partner is a valuable and integral part of the whole programme.
“We both found Hypnobirthing with you invaluable. I was much more prepared as a result and was more able to deal with the hospital and make sure that we got the room and the water birth we wanted.” Chris, a Hypnodad!
