The confident childbirth approach to pregnancy and birth is about bringing, you, the expectant mother, back to your own unique experience, utilising all your resources to have the best possible birth experience for you and your baby.
I am passionate about this aspect of my work. I consider it a real privilege to work with women at such a special time for them.
Whether you have fears based on previous experience or stories you have heard. Or, you simply want help in ensuring a confident, calm and joyful experience. Confident childbirth sessions can help.
During Confident Childbirth sessions you will learn:
- Self Hypnosis - how to go into a state of calm relaxation
- Personal Visualisations to aid your labour and delivery
- How to focus constructively in order to manage the birth of your baby in the best way for you
- How to remain positive and in control
For childbirth, hypnotherapy is recognised by several research studies as a way for women to have shorter labour, less need of medication, less medical intervention (such as forceps, epidural, Caesarean), a more satisfying experience and a baby born in better shape (as measured by the Apgar score). It can also reduce instances of post-natal depression.
I offer one-to-one sessions and recommend a course of 4.
Sessions can be taken at anytime throughout your pregnancy.
