Hypnobirthing

Would You Like To Know How I Got Into Birth Work?

If so, read on…

I discovered ‘Hypnobirthing’ when I was first pregnant in 2011.

In fact, it was my husband who’d heard about it first. He’d heard about it on the radio and he had mentioned it to me.

I didn’t look into it at first. Just put it to the back of mind filed away with ‘other things that sound interesting’.

In fact, I didn’t look into it until after my first appointment with the midwife.

We were chatting about a birth programme I’d seen on TV; “Misbehaving Mums To Be”. It was all about mums drinking and smoking and eating fast food all day long and the health professionals trying to show them the error of their ways.

The midwife said she hadn’t seen that programme but she had seen another one called “One Born Every Minute”.

I’d never seen the show before. She said it was “realistic” and I should watch it.

I came home and watched it.

And to be honest, it scared the living daylights out of me.

The women I saw did not look in control. They did not seem prepared and something just did not look right to me.

My first thought was, “What is going on?”

Followed closely by, “Why can other animals give birth in the main without issue and yet THAT was what human birth was?”

I just didn’t get it!

And so, I set about trying to find out what was going on?

I remembered my husband mentioning self-hypnosis for childbirth. I did some research and  promptly booked myself on a hypnobirthing course!

To me, it sounded like a way I could be calmer and more in control of the birth.

Six years later, I’m so passionate that birth doesn’t have to be ‘like that’, that I left my  job as an NHS Assistant Psychologist to become a Doula and a Hypnobirthing teacher.

I now help pregnant women and their partners understand how they can get the best birth possible.

I want to make the world a better place and I believe this starts at birth. If we get this right, we sort out humanity. Mothers have a better start and babies have a better start when they are born into love and not fear.

I made a whole series of FREE videos based on  the acronym EMPOWER where you’ll learn more about me and my story as well as lots more about how birth works and how you can maximise the possibility you will stay calm and remember your birth experience positively. You can watch the FREE videos here.

Should you decide you’d like to walk this path with me, I can help you:

      • take control of your birth experience in  a way that feels right for you
      • develop a toolkit of ‘tools’ and techniques to manage the sensations you’ll feel
      • maintain calm by using the self-hypnosis techniques
      • set up your support so your birth partner, if you have one, is your ultimate wingman (or woman!)
      • ask the right questions so you can make the decisions that are right for you
      • set up your environment so it is conducive to the birthing process
      • be prepared mentally, physically and emotionally so you get the best possible birth on the day
      • look forward to your babies birth knowing you’ve got it all covered and
      • ‘stack the odds’ in your favour for you to get the kind of birth you want

So Where Are You At Right Now?

It may be you don’t have any specific worries about birth.

Maybe you just want to know what you can do to make it go as  smoothly as possible…

Perhaps you know about how birth works but would just like to know more about the mental tools you can use to stay relaxed

Maybe you feel you’re being well informed and supported but just want to know more or set aside the time and space to practice…

Or perhaps you’re really worried about your baby’s birth and you’d rather be relaxed in pregnancy rather than carrying around that fear…

Whatever it is, if you feel that hypnobirthing may be the right thing for you, perhaps I can help you prepare for this special day?

Historically, we’ve expected mainstream education on birth to tell us what we need to know and prepare us for parenthood in the best way.

But this is simply not possible in our current system and more and more people are turning to independent practitioners to help them access additional knowledge.

Most people don’t question the conveyor belt of care that’s on offer but if you’re the questioning sort, like me, you’ll want to be in possession of the facts so you can make your own decisions to make your baby’s birth flows as smoothly as possible.

Here, Anouska explains how hypnobirthing helped her have a really positive birth experience…
