I am delighted to offer this 2-day hypnobirthing workshop on the 26th and 27th of May running from 10am-4pm.
Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal programme which teaches mums and dads the physiology of a woman’s body during labour and childbirth, the relationship between the mind and body, and how to use self-hypnosis along with other relaxation techniques. It enables the mind to work in harmony with the body, which is naturally designed to give birth, and to replace fear with a calm confidence.
Hypnobirthing is not about preparing you for the perfect birth as we don't know how each labour will progress. It prepares you mentally in a positive way which is vital for how you feel about your birth experience. It can be used in birthing scenario and adapted in a way which resonates with you. Hypnobirthing is an enlightening course which has positive ripple effects on all other areas of your life!
At this workshop you will learn:
Breathing exercises - this is massively helpful!
The vital role of the hormones and how our thoughts influence their production during labour
How the mind and body work together and why mindset is key for a positive birth experience
Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation
Visualisations and how to use them effectively during labour
About positive affirmations and getting the best use out of them
How to create a calm birthing space
The importance of language and becoming mindful
How to feel confident to discuss the benefits and risks of decisions with your healthcare provider
The protective and supportive role of dad/birth partner, including using comforting massage
A practice regime to support you at home
I used hypnobirthing for my second birth so I know what difference it can make to your birth experience. I went from a place of fear prior to and following my first birth, to looking forward to labour with my second baby! I learned so much about how our mind and body work together as one. A calm, focused mind allows the body to work much more efficiently. I'm so excited to share the knowledge I have with other parents! �
The workshop includes a parent handout, Hypnobirthing book, mp3 of hypnosis tracks and my offer of ongoing support.
Spaces are limited so please get in touch to book your place now.
