Is this your first baby? Read birth stories here -  Jamie and Thom amazed the midwives by birthing their 8lb 9oz baby calmly using only hypnobirthing techniques, at the New Forest Birth Centre;  Read about Emma and Stewart's hospital birth and Sara's home birth  using Natal Hypnotherapy techniques from my courses. 

Laura and Rich's plans changed when they accepted induction of labour but still ensured they had a positive birth experience for baby Cora.

If you have had a caesarean, see how Natal Hypnotherapy helped Robyn plan for a positive birth experience for baby number 2.  

Natal HypnotherapyTM group classes and private sessions    

For maximum benefit, I recommend the full Natal Hypnotherapy programme of two one-day antenatal sessions,  and includes all course materials and relaxation tracks for you and your partner to use after the course.  

You can book each day in different months, so you can start to feel the benefits of better sleep and feeling more positive straight away, and spread the cost. 

If you prefer a more tailored or private approach, you can book a 1-1 in your home.  These will be Monday to Friday, where you have the luxury of a full day to focus on you, your baby, and to build on your strategy for birth as a team, without eating into weekends. You can spread 1-1 sessions across two half day/evening sessions. There may be a small extra charge for my travel on a per-mile basis.

You can mix and match group sessions and one-to-ones. for example many clients like to learn about hypnotherapy in the Natural Pain Relief study day (day 1)  on a 1-1 basis,  with home comforts around them, where we are able to focus on any particular anxieties or worries confidentially. Then, they may be happy to attend a group Practical Birth Preparation session (day 2) nearer the birth.

Please ask early  - the slots can fill quickly and I hate to leave people disappointed! 

   Natural Pain Relief  

In the Natural Pain Relief workshop you will learn what hypnosis is (and what it isn't!) and how it can be used during pregnancy, to help you feel more positive, and to prepare for labour and birth. You will learn how fear and anxiety can inhibit labour and increase the pain sensations.  

You will practise self hypnosis skills to overcome fear,  and increase your confidence and trust in your ability to give birth.  You will explore ways your birth partner can help you to achieve a deeply relaxed state. There will be plenty of opportunity to work together and practise techniques you will be able to use in labour. 

You will go home with a link to download a set of relaxation tracks for you and your partner to continue practising relaxation. You can take this workshop at any time during pregnancy.

Practical Birth Preparation 

The Practical Birth Preparation workshop develops the skills you have gained in the Natural Pain Relief workshop. The role of the birth partner is a key focus for the day.

You will learn about how normal birth unfolds, physically and emotionally, and partners will gain skills to deal with the different emotional responses a woman may display in labour.  You will have the opportunity to practise massage, movement, using a birth ball. you will have learned effective ways to work together with midwives and the medical team supporting you. 

By the end of the day you will have a plan for birth to take home and develop in the period leading up to the birth, wiht your course resource book.  

The above workshops are also available as private sessions in your own home, subject to availability. There may be a mileage charge, at HMRC current rates.
