Child Birth

Self Hypnosis for Childbirth
With the help of the therapist you will learn the powerful tool of Self Hypnosis. This will help you during pregnancy and labour, allowing you to experience the joy of birth fully and naturally*.
Childbirth can be easier

How can Hypnosis help?

Physical relaxation, using guided visualisations followed by positive hypnotic suggestions, is learned and practiced daily in preparation for birth. The subconscious mind is trained to believe that birth will be comfortable, easy and more enjoyable.

Fear and Expectation
In other cultures, childbirth is regarded as a natural, normal event in a woman's life.
As a result, their births are relatively without pain and fear. They have a positive expectation of childbirth. In our culture, it is very much the opposite. For many generations we have been told that delivering a baby involves many hours of painfully agonising work, to be faced with fear and trepidation. We have all heard stories from well-meaning friends and family that send shivers up our spines, and so the legacy continues. We experience pain in childbirth, in part because we very much expect to!

Self-Hypnosis for Childbirth

These sessions will teach you how to enter into self-hypnosis instantly, and
create your own natural anaesthesia whenever and wherever you need it. You will have control over your body, and be able to be an active participant in your birth process. As labour progresses, you relax even more, trusting in your body's natural ability to give birth with ease and comfort.

Too good to be true?
Can women give birth without experiencing pain? They can, but there are many variables in labour and birth that can affect the outcome, and couples need to have a positive but realistic view of hypnosis for childbirth. In these session we also learn to focus on the outcome and healthy coping mechanism for all the variables of birth.
