Not just for hippies! Hypnobirthing is about education, information, empowerment, relaxation. It helps you to enjoy your pregnancy and bond with your baby. Understanding and knowing your birth rights and enjoying making informed choices right for you and your baby. I actively encourage birth partners to be involved with the sessions. We explore birth plans, your own experiences and help remove fear that maybe linked to giving birth.
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a childbirth preparation method that utilizes relaxation techniques, visualization, and self-hypnosis to help expectant mothers achieve a calmer and more positive birthing experience. It aims to reduce anxiety, enhance self-confidence, and empower women to take control of their birthing process.
By using positive wording and relaxations, breathing techniques and massage staying relaxed helps you to be in control of your birth. We explore the science behind birth and ways to keep the birth environment high on oxytocin.
“I found hypnobirthing helped me to understand the birth process and be able to relax and enjoy my baby bump.”
Sessions are also personal to you, this isn't the same a digital download or group session, I provide hypnobirthing to suit your own birth preferences/journey.
Q- Do I have to have a Vaginal birth to use hypnobirthing? No! this is for any type of birth, your birth, your baby, your body. I can work in different birth types and plans to suit your needs,
Q- What do I need to do after the class? PRACTICE it really only works if you spend the time practicing. Read the book KG Hypnobirthing and enjoy your pregnancy.
Q- Can hypnobirthing really reduce pain? Yes, we learn about the pain cycles and how to support the pain element of birth, powerful surges can be managed by these type of breathing techniques and understanding the process.
"I'm actually looking forward to the birth now instead of feeling worried and anxious, so thank you for all your guidance and hypnobirthing class"
I have been involved with Hypnobirthing both personally and professionally and 'in my opinion' it's just amazing if you read some of the birth stories and reviews about the powers of hypnobirthing, no matter what type of birth you have it really can help.
“Hypnobirthing enabled me to trust in my body”
