Giving birth with calm
Becoming a parent to a new baby can be a wonderful time. However, the journey to becoming a parent can sometimes feel like an emotional rollercoaster, with the highest highs and the lowest lows. I am here to support you every step of the way from wanting to conceive through to adjusting to life with your new family member. We also support parents with older children and adolescents. All our services are gender-inclusive.
Early in the twentieth century a British gynaecologist named Grantly Dick-Reid,
dedicated himself to trying to help women to have ‘pain free’ births, and he realised that what caused pain in childbirth was fear. He noted that in communities where birth was seen as ‘natural’ women were more relaxed and both the birth and the recovery were quicker; while women in developed countries were finding childbirth
increasingly painful and difficult.
Calmer births with hypnotherapy
Solution focused hypnotherapy uses physical relaxation, guided visualisations
and positive hypnotic suggestions to train the subconscious mind into believing that the birth will be comfortable, easier and more enjoyable; and to experience ‘discomfort’ as ‘pressure’.
It teaches you to enter into self-hypnosis instantly and to 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 will relax even more and you will trust your body's natural ability to give birth with ease and comfort.
The benefits of using hypnosis for childbirth or 'hypno-birthing' include:
Less or no use of analgesic drugs meaning less risk of side effects on mother and baby.
A more awake and more energised mother.
A calm, peaceful birthing environment.
Fewer interventions and complications during labour.
Babies who are reported to sleep and feed better.
1 to 1 sessions are £100 per session.
Minimum 5 sessions.
