Welcome to BirthConfidence

WELCOME to my website where you will find out how Natal Hypnotherapy can help you have a better birth experience, no matter how or where you give birth. You have made an excellent choice!

What is Natal Hypnotherapy?

Often referred to as hypnobirthing,  Natal Hypnotherapy teaches self-hypnosis techniques for controlling pain in labour. Increasingly popular with both mothers and midwives, particularly since reports that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge used hypnotherapy to prepare for birth last year.

Added benefits include shorter labours, less intervention, calmer babies and more confident parents. Hypnobirthing is well known for helping women work with their bodies, tuning into their instincts, but what distinguishes us from other approaches is  that we prepare you for however or wherever you choose to give birth. Our programme is backed up by a range of CDs  including VBAC and Caesarean Section .

Why do a workshop?

The CDs are popular but by doing a workshop with me you will be putting theory into practice, be able to get answers to any questions you may have, as well as learning from others. Private workshops are individually tailored to your particular needs. Both give partners a good understanding of the process and how they can help, so they can be fully involved.

Whether this is your first baby or not, use the tabs above to look around my website for more information about how  you can have a more calm and instinctive birth experience. If you have had a baby already then you might just be looking for a different approach this time round.

I aim to encourage you to feel empowered and be an active participant in your baby’s birth. I look forward to hearing from you!

Natal Hypnotherapy Practitioner training has now been accredited by the
Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and I was part of the team of practitioners that first led Natal Hypnotherapy workshops at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in 2013.

People who come to my Natal Hypnotherapy workshops have said:

“I won’t lie, it was incredibly painful but I would have never got through it, without intervention had it not been for Natal Hypnotherapy.” MM

“Sandra is extremely knowledgeable and really brought the techniques to life. This is an excellent workshop and I would highly recommend it”. NT
