Look forward to childbirth feeling confident, positive and relaxed.
I used hypnobirthing techniques, to help me manage the birth of my own daughter naturally. Knowing how effective they can be, I would love to help you gain confidence and reduce any concerns you may have, so you too can feel empowered and positive birthing experience, whatever method you chose, or however it proceeds.
I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist but also undertook additional specialised training to enable me to offer you “Confident Childbirth” Hypnobirthing classes.
What will my Hypnobirthing sessions teach me?
A flexible approach to Hypnobirthing tailored to you.
Your Hypnobirth sessions will include:
- Teaching you self-hypnosis to help you stay calm and relax quickly.
- Visualisation exercises so you can rehearse how you want your birth to be.
- Practical pain control techniques to manage discomfort with minimum use of drugs.
- How you can harness the innate skill all women have to give birth.
- Learning to remain positive, in control and in communication.
- How to reduce any pregnancy anxiety.
- Reframing any previous negative birthing experiences or stories.
You will also receive hypnobirthing mp3s for you to listen to at home.
If you are anxious and therefore tensing the muscles in your body, your body will work against you and labour times can be much longer, more painful and can often lead to medical intervention.
Hypnobirthing will teach you tools that can help you to relax and no matter what type of birth you have. The established hypnobirthing tools will help if have a vaginal birth, planned or emergency C-section.
Even if labour is not straightforward and you find you need some pain relief or require a medical intervention, you will learn how you can still stay calm and in control so you can achieve a happy and positive experience for you and your baby.
"I would definitely recommend confident childbirth to others, I am a pretty anxious person, talking through fears, working on strategies & finding what techniques worked for me made it very personal."

Or have a look at some hypnobirth stories from my clients to see what you could achieve.
It's never too late for any session of hypnobirthing to be of benefit. Even one session is likely to be time well spent.
When should I start Hypnobirthing sessions?
An excellent time to start the course is at the beginning of the third trimester. If you prefer you can start earlier so that you can begin to enjoy the relaxation, visualisations and practice the techniques.
I do not run group classes, I prefer to meet all of my hypnobirthing clients on a 1:1 basis. This enables me to help you manage any concerns. You can come on your own or with your partner. Some partners come just for the first session, others choose to attend all of them. Occasionally some have a session of their own if they have any particular fears or anxiety in connection with the birth.
My aim is help you feel in control and confident, although your partner will play an invaluable role through their calm presence and helping to keep the right atmosphere for you during childbirth, you can pass any techniques and tips onto them after our sessions.
How is Confident Childbirth Hypnobirthing different?
Childbirth is a natural process and can be a positive experience if you learn to trust your body.
This approach is flexible, tailored to each individual and not just script based. I will take into account how you feel now, guide you towards the birth that you want for you and your baby and respects your wishes.
To maintain the highest possible standards Confident Childbirth Hypnobirthing is a Postgraduate course only taught to fully qualified Hypnotherapists trained by The Quest Institute.
