Giving birth can be one of the most powerful and positive experiences in our lives. The Hypnobirthing service I can offer you is tailor-made to your unique needs. Confident Childbirth is a flexible, understanding approach built around four sessions. Hypnobirthing gives you the skills to be able to relax deeply; be in control of  the way you experience birth. Your body and mind learn to work together in harmony to enable you to approach your baby’s birth with confidence and a sense of excitement.


Confident Childbirth Programme

The Framework…

  • Self Hypnosis. A simple and easy to learn technique which will help you to relax deeply and positively. This is a skill for life that can benefit you in so many ways, not only during pregnancy and birth, but for a lifetime.


  • Pain Control Techniques. There are several pain relief techniques which I can teach you to help you feel more relaxed, calm and confident. Every birth is different and having the choice of using both these techniques and chemical analgesia gives you options. Flexibility is the key.


  • Communication Skills. You, your partner and the medical team supporting you, are all looking for the best birth, the best care possible for you and your baby. It is important to be able to communicate your needs and wishes calmly, positively and confidently.


  • Positive Visualisation. I can guide you to develop the skills to mentally rehearse your baby’s birth and future parenthood. It may be that you have specific worries or concerns – perhaps a memory of a previous birth which you need to soften or put behind you. The flexible nature of the Confident Childbirth programme I offer means that we can chat about your individual needs in a safe, confidential space and design the best plan for you and your baby.


Benefits of Hypnobirthing

The Confident Childbirth programme gives you the skills to be able to be calm, confident and in control, no matter what sort of birth experience you want. It also gives you skills that will be a life long investment for you, your partner and your child.


When Do We Begin?

I would suggest that you begin the programme at any time from the second trimester of your pregnancy, but really it’s up to you and your needs. There are four sessions which can be spread over a month or two, giving you time to practise the new skills and listen to the bespoke WordWeaving recordings that I will write for you.

Each session is between an hour and 90 minutes long.


Shall I Come With My Partner?

Again, this is entirely up to you. Everyone is different and you will know what works for you. You can both come to every session or your partner might choose to come to only one or two, or maybe none. I would recommend that they come along for a couple to share this experience with you and understand the process. The more involved your partner is, the more supportive they can be.

I am a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, experienced in working with many varying issues, so I can help you in a way that is professional, caring and confident.

As with all my clients I offer a complimentary telephone consultation to you so that we can both decide if we would like to work together. I always think that it’s important you should be able to hear my voice and ask any questions you might have.
