Birth Hypnosis; helping you to release any tension or anxiety you may have about birth to achieve a positive birth experience and an enjoyable pregnancy
Birth Hypnosis is a method of self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques to help you during your birth. Birth Hypnosis helps release any tension or anxiety you may have about birth and can help you to achieve a positive birth experience and an enjoyable pregnancy.
Research has shown that mothers who use Birth Hypnosis have a greater chance of achieving a natural labour, are less likely to use pharmacological pain relief and may have a shorter labour. Birth Hypnosis does not guarantee that you will have a normal or pain free labour, however many women do report comfortable births after using Birth Hypnosis. The aim is to assist you to achieve a calmer, more comfortable, and empowered birth. It is also ideal for any pregnant woman who has high anxiety about childbirth, regardless of how she chooses to give birth.
Hypnosis is very safe, it is simply a form of relaxation similar to when you are about to drop off to sleep. You will be taught these relaxation techniques to assist you during your birth and this enables you to remain calm and in control of your labour. Any mother can use Birth Hypnosis during their pregnancy and birth whether this is your first baby or you have had children before.
It is never too early or too late to learn Birth Hypnosis however it does take commitment and regular practice in order to perfect the techniques and achieve maximum effect.
Birth Hypnosis is of great benefit to your partner too. Partners often report feeling more empowered and prepared for birth. It gives partners an active role and they will provide valuable assistance to you in your labour. They are an important part of helping you to birth successfully. Your birth partner can be your partner or husband but could equally be a friend or relative who is acting as a birth support and companion to you in labour. Whoever you choose as your birth partner should be able to accompany you during your classes.
HOW DO THE SESSIONS WORK?
Sessions are offered on a one-to-one basis or as part of a group depending on your personal preference and course availability. A free initial, no obligation appointment is recommended so that the programme can be tailored to your individual needs.

Sessions can either be held in the comfort of your own home or an alternative venue can be arranged should you prefer.

The full Birth Hypnosis course is £200 per couple for group session or £350 per couple for one-to-one service. This includes your course materials, folder, book and CDs. Individual sessions last one hour and cost £35 per session.

|Hypnobirthing was an invaluable service for me and one that i will never forget! It made the whole experience 'enjoyable' and reduced my 'labour and birth' fear from having my son 3 years prior so much that I was excited and looking forward to it. I don't know how I would have got through it without Hypnobirthing due to having a long labour 2nd time around! I can't thank Rae enough for her support and techniques that she has taught me. She is an inspiration and I still use a few of those taught during everyday life, 18 months on! I will never forget her as she will always be a special part of my child's birth experience. I would recommend Hypnobirthing to any expecting mummy's out there! You won't regret it! Hypnobirthing certainly puts 'you' and your partner in control giving you the confidence to birth as natural as possible - Gill, Cumbria|

|Birth is an amazing journey which could be a scary experience but hypnobirthing takes away all fear and allows birth to become a relaxing event and one where you bond further with your baby. With hypnobirthing, we had all the tools to prepare for the first time we met our baby in a relaxed calm manner. I mean who wants to be uptight and afraid at a time of celebration? Rae as a hypnobirthing teacher helped me to learn how to relax and unwind ready for the birth. Rae took away the fear of the unknown, gave me tools to be in control and look forward to meeting my baby in the best possible way - Liz, Merseyside|
