Hypnosis for Birth

Hypnosis for Birth

Natural birth can be achieved through understanding and accepting the process without fear. Hypnotherapy is becoming ever more popular and can help you have the birth you want and to stay in control of this wonderful experience.

Fear is the biggest issue which faces a woman during birth. Many people fear the unknown and by the time it comes to the birth of the baby, the expectant mother has probable listened to countless women regale them with tales of horror and agony. Fear can slow down the whole process and creates panic, which can lead to you losing touch with the rise and fall of the contractions and everything can become overwhelming. Drugs may numb some of the pain, but it can also lead to more issues due to lack of connection to your body.

I have four children and have given birth using both pain relieving drugs and self hypnosis. From my own personal experience, I would recommend the natural methods. There are many videos you can watch on the internet to see first hand experience of how calm and in control you can be.

I really enjoyed giving birth being in full control and I welcome the opportunity to work with both you and your birth partner, to share my experiences with you and to teach you all the techniques you will need, to gain the most from this amazing experience.

Being aware of your body and listening to the signs that are designed to help you, can make the birth of your baby so much easier.

Hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques are ideally suited for birth and I run a 3 week  course, covering all aspects of the event and during this time I will be happy to work with you on any personal questions you may have.

I recommend you start the course between 20 – 30 weeks, but if you wish to come later, that is no problem.

Please contact me  and I look forward to sharing this special time with you.

My practice is based in Lexden, Colchester and appointments are available weekdays, evenings and weekends.
