Dear Parents to be … some back ground information
There are so many options and service providers in this field that it must be very confusing about how to choose. I am a professional hypnotherapist and have spent over 20 years practicing and doing what I do now for over a decade . I specialise in working with busy ladies, at the last minute, older mothers , those traumatised by their previous births and those who want to work with pain relief or elective cesarian sections.
I have specialist training in hypnobirthing, pain management and advanced techniques for creating the most secure environment for a blissful, beautiful birth. I only practice in the smallest of groups and then only with friends who are sharing their birthing experience all the rest of my work is to individual couples. My work is comprehensive yet not by formula.
What are the Benefits of a Calm, Mindaware , Hypnobirth?
Hypnothirthing offers the potential for a birth that is less stress, in control, more comfort and a happier baby. Babies born using hypnobirthing, may be calmer and calmer and more alert . The work done prior to birthing allows a bond to be created between all member of the birthing party and dad is included in the process. The skills learnt help with developing resilience and self belief for the wonderful journey ahead.

What is Hypnobirthing?
Giving Birth using Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is often called Hypnobirthing it is an amazing way to give birth using your natural ability to manage pain. The dance of birthing between you and your baby is a wonderful experience and as old as time itself. It may surprise you but your baby also holds a blue print about how to get born so mum this is a joint effort. You are not in it alone !
You will need to attend 6 sessions or a one day workshop … and do your homework – one session includes your birthing partner, who will share on your hypnotic journey and know how to utilise the triggers that keep you in control during labour.
This process is now called Hypnobirthing because we incorporate into the experience, releasing of fears and any previous birth trauma including all the hypnosis preparation you and your birthing partner may need. As result of this work and feedback from mums we now incorporate the use of hypnosis to aid with breast feeding and the management of any body discomfort .
What if I am having a c section or need an emergency c section ?
Many mums are now selecting elective c sections or are advised to have them for medical reasons. Our unique process includes preparation for and recovery from the surgical procedure . Evidence shows that hypnosis improves recovery times . Our testimonials will be appearing shortly so you can read three clients stories one of which includes a rather startled health visitor not believing mum gave birth so recently because she was so healed. This is wonderful work because it means that Mum and Baby can benefit from all the relaxation, gentle focus and bonding which helps maintain confidence, calmness and control during birth.
What else do I learn ?
I teach you the life long skills of self hypnosis, the power of utilising your amazing mind to focus on what you want and the way to do it. This stays with you through sleepless nights and breastfeeding, your powers of resilience are greatly enhanced. As a Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis Educator I help you understand why it’s important that your time spent in learning hypnobirthing is all about the elimination of negative thoughts and feelings, as the stress hormones directly interfere with your feel good hormones generated by your body to help you do the work of birthing the way nature intended. As an experienced hypnotist I also know the gotchyas. I know how to spot how you are doing and teach you the art of remaining aware and in communication with your health care team. I am not a medical professional though and though I educate about the role of hormones, the mind and in the birthing process hypnobirthing is not a replacement of or for the sound medicine of birthing.
