Hi, I’m Sandra Bush and in 2011 I trained as a Hypnobirthing practitioner with Maggie Howell, founder of Natal Hypnotherapy, a course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM). I’m also an NCT Antenatal Teacher and Tutor/Assessor. Bowled over by the power of hypnosis I continued to study and am now a qualified Hypnotherapist, NGH certified (National Guild of Hypnotists). I teach antenatal classes at a local Hospital and have been helping prepare women and their partners for birth and parenthood in the Wimbledon and Wandsworth area for well over 23 years.
I love preparing women and their partners for birth, and am passionate about helping them to achieve the best possible experience, a day to look back on with awe, no matter how the labour turns out. I offer group workshops and also private one to one sessions and am also available for seeing clients wth pregnancy-related issues, including anxiety, dealing with specific fears and help with conception, on a one-to-one hourly basis.
Both of my sons were born before Hypnobirthing took off in this country though the first recorded birth using hypnosis was in 1858! I am convinced 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 self-hypnosis would have prepared me better had things turned out differently.
I truly believe if women and their partners embrace the process of giving birth no matter what, they set themselves up to become more confident parents. If you are expecting a baby and want to feel more confident about giving birth do consider booking a Hypnobirthing workshop with me.
