If you’re pregnant and would like to stay naturally relaxed, calm and in control throughout your pregnancy and during the birth of your baby, then my Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing sessions are likely to be of great interest to you.
My aim is for you to have the best possible pregnancy and birthing experience for you and your baby, where you can feel confident and in control no matter what kind of birth you want or how it proceeds.
I can also help you deal with fears connected to needles, hospitals, doctors and nurses etc.
Studies show that hypnobirthing can reduce pain, shorten labour, enhance apgar scores, reduce the likelihood of medical intervention and reduce post natal depression after the birth.
Anecdotal evidence shows that mothers who have used hypnobirthing have a sense of control, confidence and relaxation during labour and more enjoyable birth experiences. Also, more women report feeling well after delivery than women not using hypnobirthing.
My Hypnobirthing method is usually planned as a series of four personalised sessions at Godalming or Moorgate London designed specifically for you and how you want your birth experience to be. Sessions are normally taken during early pregnancy so that you can learn how to feel more calm and confident while awaiting the arrival of your new baby. You’ll also relax more knowing that you’re learning a set of skills and techniques using the power of the mind to manage how pain and discomfort are experienced and to help reduce their levels at the birth of your baby.
The flexibility of working with me means that I respect your choices and decisions, so whether you choose to have your baby at hospital or a home-birth, with or without chemical pain relief, you can learn how to communicate your wishes confidently and clearly with your medical support team. Chemical pain relief and/or medical intervention can be positive options if they’re informed decisions, confidently chosen and achieve the best possible outcomes for you and your baby. Our aim is for your childbirth to be the most positive experience it can be no matter how your birth proceeds.
If you’ve already experienced a traumatic birth, it’s natural that the memories can influence your feelings around future births. However, as a fully trained Cognitive hypnotherapist, I can help you put any fears and anxieties associated with that experience behind you and teach you how to make the forthcoming birth, the best experience that it can be for you.
The skills you’ll learn from my Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing can help you after the birth with breastfeeding, sleep and confidence when looking after your new baby.
Our sessions are uniquely flexible and adapted to every individual mother so they can be undertaken independently or can include birth partners.
