Welcome to BirthConfidence

Welcome! If you are wanting a positive birth experience look no further. My Hypnobirthing workshops can help you stay calm, focused and in control, letting your body get on with what it was designed to do. If this is not your first baby then you might just be looking for a different approach this time round. I also prepare women and their partners for planned caesarean births.

Hypnobirthing is having a heyday. Royals are using it, celebrities are using it, but the only reason I mention that is that it gets in the news.

What is Hypnobirthing?

With me you will learn self-hypnosis techniques for controlling pain in labour as research shows that added benefits include shorter labours, less intervention, calmer babies and more confident parents. You will learn how to let go of old unhelpful beliefs around birth, as who has an encouraging  word to say when you announce you’re having a baby? One thing I will stress here and say many times though is that labour and birth are unpredictable and what really matters is that you feel positive about your birth experience, no matter how or where it happens.

Why do a workshop?

Recent feedback says it all: “I think the emphasis on the birthing partner’s role is very important and allowed my partner to feel more engaged in the journey”

NB 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 Hypnobirthing workshops have said:

From my April 2017 workshop..

“I am a Doctor and was a bit sceptical about it but now realise that it is a great way to relax and chill out.” ANON

“It was very reassuring to be reminded that our bodies should be trusted to do what we are instinctively designed to do. Sandra was highly knowledgeable and it was very reassuring to hear her previous experiences especially the positive birth stories!    JW

and more……

“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

“Sandra was a calming influence, well-trained and gave us confidence in the process”. NS
