Hypnobirthing – Hypnosis for Childbirth
(See my introductory Video by rolling over the bottom of the image below and pressing the play button)
Bring your child into the world peacefully and naturally
More and more mums are discovering the incredible power of hypnobirthing in the UK and learning how to give birth easily and naturally, gaining all the benefits hypnobirthing brings. It is perfect for those wishing a quicker, easier, more relaxed birth or even a natural birth. With hypnobirthing there is less need for drugs and, often, none at all are needed.
Because you are very relaxed, the pain is reduced (pain intensifies when scared, or tense) and then knowing how to release your natural anaesthesia it lessens again and because you are able to remain so relaxed, and use the breathing techniques, your contractions (surges) are more efficient and so birthing is far quicker and easier.
It is great for first-time Mums and Mums who have already had children (and maybe had a less than positive experience before). You can start to learn hypnobirthing anytime from about 24 weeks onwards. However, it is never too late to start; even at 38 weeks!
There are two ways to learn Hypnobirthing with me:
Reduction of time in labour using hypnotherapy or hypnobirthing
Using hypnosis reduces the first stage of your labour by about 3-4 hours if you are a first-time mother and about 2 hours if you are mother who has given birth before
Less analgesic drug (if any) using hypnotherapy or hypnobirthing
It is frequently found that no painkillers are required as the only sensations you experience are movement and pressure or tightening, this is obviously much better for both you and your baby
A calm, peaceful birthing experience without the need for strenuous pushing
Because you are in control, you can gently and calmly breathe your child into the world without the need for strenuous pushing; it is a calm, beautiful and peaceful way for you to give birth.
A less stressed baby who is able to feed more easily and sleep better
Babies born with hypnosis are less stressed which means they often cry less, sleep and feed better and generally are calmer, because your baby has also enjoyed a calm, peaceful entry into the world.
A less exhausted mother after birth
Because you have been so relaxed and calm during birth, most women feel less mentally and physically exhausted, and even look fit and well afterwards.
More rapid post-natal recovery
Episiotomies are rarely required due to the relaxation during the final stages of labour without hard, anxious pushing
Birthing partners have an active role to play during the birth
Instead of your birthing partner being a helpless onlooker, they play a central and important role during birth, helping you to use the techniques you have both learned.
Your body has been perfectly designed to give birth! This programme teaches you about the mechanics of childbirth and how to work with your body by relaxing deeply, breathing in certain ways to help it, and letting it do its most perfect work. Hypnosis is a completely natural state of relaxed concentration which you can easily learn.
Hypnosis was first recognised by the British Medical Association in 1955 as a valuable medical tool. In terms of pain relief, it is used in many medical and dental treatments and operations with great success. Channel 4, having investigated this, broadcast live on TV an operation on a man who used only self-hypnosis to successfully anesthetise himself, and he remained calm and pain-free throughout!
The programme takes these same techniques to teach you not only to relax but how to numb your body at will as and when you wish so that you feel only pressure or movement but little or no pain.
By learning these techniques you remove any anxiety you may have about giving birth which is very important as anxiety creates fear, fear creates tension and tension creates pain, which in turn creates more anxiety and so on ....
