Pregnancy, birth and motherhood can all be scary and nerve-wracking times. However, Hypnotherapy can help you through these difficult times by encouraging you to remain calm and in control of all situations.

Hypnobirthing is a complete birth education programme, that teaches simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better birth.

Hypnobirthing is much more than just self hypnosis or hypnotherapy for childbirth.

  • With Hypnobirthing, you’ll discover that severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour

  • You’ll learn how to release the fears and anxieties you may currently have about giving birth, and how to overcome previous traumatic births

  • Hypnobirthing lets you discover and experience the joy and magic of birth – rather than the horrific ordeal everyone else seems hell-bent on telling you about

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to put yourself back in control of your birth – rather than blindly turning your birthing experience over to your doctor or midwife.

Hypnobirthing doesn’t mean you’ll be in a trance or a sleep. Rather, you’ll be able to chat, and be and in good spirits – totally relaxed, but fully in control. You’ll always be aware of what is happening to you, and around you.

Hypnobirthing doesn’t require any particular belief system, or prior experience. Some of our mums (and especially their husbands!) have been very sceptical at first – until they experience it for themselves.

In fact, the more sceptical they are to start with, the more evangelical they are when they discover the power of Hypnobirthing.

Just imagine welcoming each surge! Feeling peaceful… relaxing… and even smiling as your baby comes closer to you!

In short, Hypnobirthing allows you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear and tension that prevents the birthing muscles of your body from functioning as Nature intended them to.

Hypnobirthing can:

  • Make pregnancy more enjoyable

  • Reduce morning sickness

  • Reduce any fears or concerns

  • Reduce labour pains

  • Reduce time in labour

  • Reduce the likelehood for medical interventions

  • Encourage healthy flow of oxygen in mum and baby

  • Remove stresses

  • Feel in control

  • Feel calm and peaceful
