I have been helping prepare women and their partners for birth and parenthood in the Wimbledon and Wandsworth area for over 20 years.
Having taught many women in the past who had used hypnosis techniques, often referred to as hypnobirthing, and having seen how so many of them had straightforward births, I decided to train as a Natal Hypnotherapy practitioner with Maggie Howell.
Click here for a short video clip showing Maggie Howell speak about how she came to develop Natal Hypnotherapy. Listen to what Chireal, who gave birth to twins, has to say about the impact it had on her labour, how she felt very little, if any pain at all.
My workshops focus on specific techniques using hypnosis and are tailored to each individual woman and her partner. Both of my boys were born before the advent of Natal Hypnotherapy and although the breathing and relaxation techniques I learned in both NCT and yoga classes made a difference, and I was fortunate to have fantastic support each time I now know that using hypnosis would have prepared me better had things turned out differently.
I am passionate about enabling women and their partners to embrace the process of giving birth and to be confident parents. Understanding how a woman’s body works, how it is so beautifully designed to nurture and birth a child and having confidence in this process is the best preparation for parenting. If you are expecting a baby and want to feel more confident about birth and everything that comes with it, do consider booking a Natal Hypnotherapy workshop with me.
