Giving birth is an amazing act which, unfortunately, worries many mothers-to-be. The onslaught of images and portrayals in the media do little to allay these fears. However, it doesn’t need to be painful and frightening. This is where Hypnobirthing can help. I am a fully qualified Hypnobirthing practitioner using the modern and comprehensive Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullen method.
Hypnobirthing is a way of taking control of your labour and having the confidence in your body’s natural ability to birth in a calm and comfortable manner. Whether you choose to give birth at home, at a birthing centre or in a hospital, Hypnobirthing has many benefits.
My course offers you a complete Hypnobirthing antenatal education which teaches you the anatomy, physiology and psychology of childbirth, together with techniques intended to help you have the most natural childbirth possible.
Previous experiences of birth trauma
Hypnobirthing is also an empowering way to approach labour following a previous traumatic birth experience. By incorporating additional hypnotherapy techniques, fears and anxiety stemming from the past can be worked through and released, before learning the methods for approaching your next birth with calmness, positivity and control. Having experienced two traumatic births myself, Hypnobirthing techniques made my third labour completely different, without fear and with virtually no pain relief or intervention. Imagine what it could do for you…
Courses are designed for women who are 20 weeks +, together with their birthing partner. The earlier you take the course, the more time you will have to practise the techniques and feel at home with self-hypnosis and relaxation. You will receive a course companion book to take home, as well as an access code which enables you to access and stream numerous materials to help you through your pregnancy and labour. Group courses are kept small to allow you and your birthing partner the opportunity to ask questions, to gain experience in Hypnobirthing techniques, and to make friends. Group courses are run over two full days, with a range of refreshments provided at each session. I also run one-to-one courses from the comfort of your own home if you would prefer.
I also offer shorter courses which run over 4 evenings. These are primarily aimed at mums-to-be who have already given birth before but would like to approach their next labour differently, or those who would like a refresher of techniques previously learned.
Follow-up antenatal relaxation courses
Once you have completed the Hypnobirthing course, you may wish to continue your journey by attending antenatal relaxation classes. This will give you some wonderful ‘me and baby’ time and the chance to practise the techniques learned during the course, as well as meeting other mums-to-be.
