BeliefBumpBaby

Swift, natural pain-free childbirth is possible. I can teach you how.

My programme, which uses a system developed in conjunction with UK midwives, will support you through the birthing experience. Even if this is not your first pregnancy, or if you have had difficult labours before I can help. Research has shown that birth with hypnosis can help to achieve:

  • Faster labour
  • Significantly less need
    for medication or drugs
  • Fewer interventions
  • Can turn breach presentations
  • A relaxed and healthy baby with less
    chance of distress

Evidence suggests that babies born through this process have higher Apgar scores, tend to be calmer, feed and sleep better, and mothers can experience a more rapid recovery, reduced incidence of post natal depression, and generally have more energy for the birth. I can teach you how to have a calm, confident and in-control childbirth.

How?

I can work with you individually or in one of my small group sessions (no more than 5 couples) which ever meets your needs and requirements best. Partners are encouraged to attend at least one session. And I'm happy to work with midwives on any aspect of your care, whether for pregnancy or for birth preparation.

The programme I will teach you ensures a relaxed and calm mother and a relaxed and calm baby. The mother can communicate with her caregivers at all times, get up, move around and do whatever she wants whilst being completely alert and comfortable.

Just 1 session can double your confidence in yourself for birthing your baby.

You can attend sessions from 25 weeks of pregnancy and your partner's attendance is encouraged.

The course is in 3 parts:

  1.Basic- 1.5 hours
  2.Intermediate- 3 hours
  3.Advanced- 3 hours

You will learn all about the natural physiology of childbirth and learn how to have confidence in your body. We will also banish fears and negative conditioning and really get you trusting in yourself, feeling calm, comfortable and in control, looking forward to a happy and positive birth day.

You will receive:

  • Complete library of CDs for home hypnosis practise - over 2½ hours
  • CD of hypnotic music to play in labour, the same music we will use in our sessions together
  • Supporting notes and material
  • A positive attitude as you look forward to
    your baby's entry into the world with joy

The cost of the course is £70 for the Basic session, and £90 each for Intermediate and Advanced. This cost is per couple, of course. Courses are held in the beautiful surroundings of the Willow Tree Clinic in Northampton or I can find venues closer to you if there is enough demand.

Please phone me to book your place on a course or to find out more information.

I like to speak to each woman individually when booking my courses so I can get to know you prior to the start and I can tailor the course to your needs if required

Hypno-birthing

Childbirth with hypnosis has been described as "hypno-birthing" and it can be a real advantage.

By using hypnosis, a mother in labour can help herself to remain calm. Blood flow is improved and comfort increased. A relaxed mind and body can ease a labour to feel in control and positive. This good perception of labour and good blood flow will help post-natal recovery and the production of milk.

For an in-depth discussion of exactly how hypnosis helps women to give birth comfortably, please click here http://hypnotherapyarticles.com/ArtG/articleg00052.htm to read an article I have written, which has been published on several websites. References are available on request.

Read some stories by clicking here from other women who have birthed with the EasibirthingTM methods that I will teach you

Difficult Births

Even if labour is not straightforward, you can still achieve a happy, comfortable and positive experience for you and your baby if you have trained with my methods.

If you have had a previous difficult birth, the sessions will be tailored to helping you to move beyond any fear that remains from that experience. Some women do experience birth trauma after a difficult childbirth experience and it can manifest itself in post-natal depression and even flashbacks.

The techniques work equally well if you have a vaginal operative delivery, an emergency C-section or a planned C-section.

Midwives

The work I do is highly individualised and I am very happy to work with your midwife on any aspect of your care, whether in pregnancy or preparation for birth.
