What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing is a complete antenatal course based on the tenet that childbirth is a normal, natural and healthy function for women. It is a program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis and education that empowers women to trust their natural birthing instincts and allows them to birth their babies safely, easily and without severe discomfort, resulting in a calm, peaceful experience for the whole family. This relaxing method of birthing without stress or fear allows babies to enter the world in an atmosphere of calm and joy.
Why choose BirthCalm?
As a qualified Doctor with 3 young children I am ideally placed to teach your HypnoBirthing classes. My own observations as a medical student showed me how calm and peaceful childbirth can be when not accompanied by fear, so when I came to have my own babies I knew that I wanted to use HypnoBirthing for my own labours. Although my oldest son (now 5yrs) was born by Caesarean because he was in a breech position, the methods I had learnt for deep relaxation were still extremely useful. When my daughter was born 15 months later I finally achieved the HypnoBirth I really wanted- a natural homebirth with no pain-relief, and it was a lovely, calm, joyful occasion.
Now that I have given up work to look after my children full-time, I want all parents-to-be to have that same experience that I had: that giving birth to your baby should be a day that you look forward to with excitement and wonder and without fear, confident in the knowledge that you will have a safe, calm birth that does not have to be accompanied by pain.
Classes are available evenings and weekends both as part of a group and one-to-one in your own home. Please contact me now to find out more about HypnoBirthing and to check my availability.
