Prenatal & Birth Hypnosis
Embrace the Calm: Discover the Power of Birth Hypnosis
will work with you to provide you simple solutions for remaining relaxed during
childbirth, uncover hidden fears and change programming so that childbirth
becomes a pleasant experience, reducing or eliminating the need for unnecessary
drugs, so that your childbirth experience can be the miraculous innate process
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, and additional training in both Birth By Hypnosis and HypnoBirth Rite
childbirth protocol, I have the flexibility
to tailor each session to address your unique needs as you prepare for
childbirth. Not all pregnant women would suit the exact same dress or
hairstyle; hypnosis is the same, it’s an individual experience – that’s why
your sessions with me are one-on-one, your experience of hypnosis and the
techniques you learn will be styled to suit you.
Benefits of Birthing with Hypnosis
Some of the benefits you may enjoy from preparing and birthing with hypnosis can include:
Your baby can benefit too:
Enjoy a Relaxed Hypno Birth Free from Tension and Anxiety
We’ve been conditioned through dramatic television shows and stories from well-meaning friends and family to expect childbirth to be painful. Fortunately, with hypnotherapy you can release this old and unhelpful conditioning and learn deep relaxation techniques. This can make a huge difference to birthing your baby because free from tension, anxiety and fear your body can do what it is innately designed to do much more comfortably and easily, without unnecessary tension or adrenaline producing anxiety interfering in the process.
Oxytocin is a naturally occurring key hormone in childbirth and bonding. Stress and anxiety are known to decrease levels of Oxytocin. The name Oxytocin derives from the Greek word meaning ‘swift or quick birth’. Increasing levels of Oxytocin help the uterus muscles surge effectively to deliver your baby quickly and more easily, with less forceful and exhausting effort required to push. The peak of Oxytocin at birth also contributes to the feelings of euphoria and love you experience as your baby is delivered.
Remaining relaxed during your birth will help you have the optimum Oxytocin levels. So it makes sense to learn deep hypnotic relaxation, release old conditioning, and increase your confidence in the knowledge that our bodies, just like those of our mammal cousins, are actually very well designed to naturally and comfortably birth babies.

Hypnosis is Complimentary to All Birthing Methods
is complementary prenatal education and to all birthing methods. You can enjoy
childbirth in whatever way is right for you and your baby, whether you want a
home birth, water birth, natural birth or hospital birth.
It makes sense, if adopting the natural childbirth approach, to prepare well. Even with the best-prepared mothers – there’ll be times when assistance from some medication might be required. Hypnosis is not designed to be a substitute for medical intervention and medically assisted births are not without their benefits, and are sometimes necessary for the health of you and your baby. In the instance of a birthing experience requiring medical intervention mothers generally report a comfortable experience prior to medications being applied, and find the techniques they’ve learnt can still complement the birthing experience as you’re better equipped to remain calm and decide on the best approach based on the advice from your birthing professionals; they can aide your speedy recovery.
If you know you will require a caesarean section, hypnosis can
help you feel at ease about giving birth by c-section, overcome fears, recover
quickly, and increase bonding with your baby.
