Pregnancy is an awe-inspiring and wonderful process of bringing a brand new life into the world. By choosing to learn self hypnosis for pregnancy and labour you will be taking the first step to significantly improve your health and the health and well-being of your baby.

Self Hypnosis for a healthy Pregnancy and Birth...

Studies prove self hypnosis in pregnancy can bring about the following benefits:

  • Deeper relaxation
  • A reduced need for medication and pain relief
  • A shorter labour and delivery
  • A speedier recovery
  • Quicker mother and child bonding
  • Can help relieve heartburn and morning sickness
  • Useful for pregnancy sleeping problems
  • Can help to lower blood pressure
  • Promotes a positive attitude towards the pregnancy and birth

Relaxation for Mother AND Baby...

There is more and more research becoming available about stress that an unborn baby can experience whilst still in the womb. Hypnotherapy can not only help you to relax more easily, but can also help you to deal easily with those issues which are causing you stress, leaving you to enjoy your pregnancy.

This link to Imperial College London explains why relaxation for expectant mothers is important.

Change Your Expectations...

In other cultures, childbirth is regarded as a natural, normal event in a woman's life. The women in labour is given support from other women, and children are often present to witness the event. In this way, birth is celebrated and honoured. Young girls then grow up with the belief system that birth is a positive event and their expectations of childbirth reflect this attitude.

As a result, their births are similar to their predecessors; without pain and fear. They have a positive expectation of childbirth. In our culture, it is very much the opposite. For many generations we have been told that delivering a baby involves many hours of painfully agonising work, to be faced with fear and trepidation.

We experience pain in childbirth, in part because we very much expect to!

...You Can Be in Control of Your Own Experience

Self-Hypnosis for Childbirth will teach you how to enter into self-hypnosis instantly, and create your own natural anaesthesia whenever and wherever you need it. You will have control over your body, and be able to be an active participant in your birth process.

As labour progresses, you relax even more, trusting in your body's natural ability to give birth with ease and comfort.

Too good to be true? Can women give birth without experiencing pain? They can, but there are many variables in labour and birth that can affect the outcome, and couples need to have a positive but realistic view of hypnosis for childbirth.

I teach the benefits of self-hypnosis to enable a relaxed approach to the baby's birth and not necessarily working just with the Mum-to-be, Dads are invited too so they remain calm under the pressure and play an active role in the birth.

...Using a Safe and Beneficial Treatment

Hypnosis is a very safe and gentle treatment, and you will not experience any negative side effects.  In fact most people experience some unexpected benefits:

  • Sleeping better
  • In control
  • Calmer
  • Happier
  • More confident

Here When You Need Me...

I can help you at any point in your pregnancy (even one session will have some benefit), but in general I would recommend that you book in to see me initially as early as possible, and ideally before 32 weeks.  

In general, self hypnosis for childbirth can be taught in 4 sessions, spread over the time we have available.  All mothers have different experiences and requirements, so I do treat you as an individual and understand that one size does not fit all. I recommend that all expectant mothers book in for a free consultation first, in order that I can tailor the plan to your specific requirements.  Partners/birth partners are encouraged to attend this initial consultation.
