Have the birth experience you want to have…

Pregnancy is perhaps one of the most life changing events that you will experience. You may experience a wide variety of emotions; all of which are understandable.

Often, people put so much thought into pregnancy and into being a parent; have you put as much thought into the process of bringing your child into the world?

My 1-2-1 hypnobirthing in Cheshire give you the opportunity to reflect on this process and prepare for the transitory period to becoming a parent.

Childbirth has the potential to be one of the most incredible experiences, however there can be so much anxiety surrounding this event.

Hypnobirthing is about empowering you to have the birth experience you want to have.

Your Body is Already Perfectly Designed to Give Birth…

Hypnobirthing teaches you how to trust your body and let your mind step gracefully out of the way. It provides you with the confidence and skills needed to let your body and your baby do what they already know how to do, in the best way possible.

I am trained and qualified in the easibirthing® model of hypnosis for childbirth. This model was developed in the UK specifically for qualified hypnotherapists, in partnership with midwives, to reflect UK birthing practices. It is the only hypnosis for childbirth qualification in the UK to be independently accredited (by the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy) and is designed to be flexible to your individual needs.

Hypnobirthing is about changing your expectation of childbirth.

Hypnobirthing gives you the ability to experience this wonderful time in the very best way possible.

When Can I Start?

Sessions run over 5 consecutive weeks, therefore in order to get the most out of your hypnobirthing experience the best time to start with classes is between 24-30 weeks into your pregnancy. This gives you adequate time to practice techniques at home.

What if I am Over 30 Weeks Pregnant?

I understand that pregnancy can be a busy time. You may be at a later stage in your pregnancy before thinking you would like to benefit from hypnobirthing.

I believe that everyone, no matter what stage, will benefit from hypnobirthing. I am therefore able to tailor sessions to your needs. This is an advanced course which works well for most people over 5 sessions. However,  I am able to offer the course over 3 longer sessions if needed. Therefore please contact me to discuss your specific requirements.

No Birth Partner?

Birth partners may be partners, family members or friends. It is the person you choose to support you during your birth. However if you do not have a birth partner, this is OK. You will find hypnobirthing an incredibly beneficial experience and will help you to feel calm, confident and in control, so please contact me.

Having a Caesarean?

Hypnobirthing is beneficial for anybody who is bringing a child into the world, no matter what the process. Hypnobirthing sessions can be completely tailored to your needs. Therefore, if you know you will be having a caesarean but would like to benefit from hypnobirthing, please contact me to discuss your requirements.
