What Is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing uses a combination of different techniques and philosophies from around the world. 

When a mother and her birth partner are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.

Hypnobirthing is not necessarily all about having a natural birth, it is about giving you evidence-based information that you can use to make your own choices and have the birth that you want.

Things can happen during childbirth that we have no control over. Hypnobirthing gives you the tools to deal with any curve balls that might be thrown your way so that you can still come out of your birth feeling empowered and on top of the world!

Hypnobirthing prepares your mind and body for birth and empowers you with choices you can make that decrease your chances of interventions.

What's the 'hypno' all about?

The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins at times during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, your birth can be a more calm and relaxed experience; one where you are in the driver’s seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.

Is Hypnobirthing only for natural births?

Hypnobirthing is not necessarily about having a natural birth, it is about empowering you with fact-based information that you can use to make your own choices and have the birth that you want.

Not everyone can have a natural birth- and we are very lucky to be living in a time where it has never been safer to have a baby! In the event that medical intervention is needed in your birth, you will find yourself still able to remain calm and feel in control.

One of our affirmations is “I am prepared to calmly meet whatever turn my birthing takes”.

Is Hypnobirthing a new thing?

Hypnobirthing uses a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years. Ancient wisdom is combined with modern theory – giving you the advantage in your acquisition of knowledge as you prepare for your birth.

What is the Positive Birth Program?

Hypnobirthing provides you with the recipe for a positive birth! The 4 main ingredients are: knowledge, tools, support and preparation. The Positive Birth Program is delivered face-to-face in private, small groups or over Zoom and goes over all these 4 ingredients in detail.

About Me

After completing the Positive Birth Program for my second birth and having an amazingly empowering experience, I knew straight away that I wanted to help other women achieve the same thing.

Women deserve to be given the best chance to have an empowering positive birth experience and I know that Hypnobirthing is the way to go!

I have a passion for all things birth and natural health, I have dabbled in Chinese Medicine and I am so excited to now be teaching Hypnobirthing!

I can’t wait to meet and help you tap into your body’s natural instincts, provide you with tools for a calm beautiful birth and empower you to make the right decisions for you and Your Birth.
