​Childbirth can be an empowering experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Hypnobirthing replaces fear and anxiety with calm and confidence by working with the body.

Fear creates tension which prevents the muscles of the body from relaxing and functioning the way nature intended.
Through being educated, self ​hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques, this will help you to take control. Resulting in a positive birth for you, your baby and partner. 
Having trained with Katherine Graves (the founder of KG Hypnobirthing) I have gone on to teach many mothers and their birth partners the positive effect of learning Hypnobirthing and how you can use these techniques in every day life, not just for birth. The course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
Benefits include:
  • ​Release fear, tension and pain - which lead to interventions.
  • Self hypnosis to induce d​eep relaxation.

  • Partner is actively involved and becomes an integral and important part of the experience.

  • Massage techniques to release endorphins, your body's natural anaesthetic.

  • Visualisation exercises and affirmations to keep you grounded, serene and positive.

  • Your increased knowledge and awareness put you in control.

  • More likely to experience a natural, calm, drug free and comfortable birth - labour can be shorter and more comfortable.

  • Hypnobirthing can’t promise a perfect birth, but by informing women to make the best decisions for themselves and their babies, Hypnobirthing mothers often have fewer interventions, fewer drugs and a more positive experience.

You will learn :

  • Discuss fears/benefits of birth so can overcome any issues and build confidence.

  • Positivity throughout pregnancy and birth. How and why this is beneficial.

  • Breathing techniques that actually help during each stage of labour.

  • Visualisations and affirmations for a beautiful birth.

  • How to encourage a natural start to labour to avoid an artificial induction.

  • Relaxation, self-hypnosis and massage techniques to help shorten labour and reduce the need for any medication at all. Exercises to practice with and without your birthing partner so you are confident in having a calm and relaxed birth.

  • How to work with medical staff and what questions to ask to feel fully informed.

  • How you and your partner can bond with your unborn baby.

  • Watch Hypnobirthing DVD's to have an understanding of different birthing experiences and how the Hypnobirthing course helped.
