Mindful Hypnobirthing workshop

This is no ordinary hypnobirthing class, it’s about your mindset and your partners mindset. Teaching focuses on how your thoughts, and your partners thoughts and actions, can affect your body during pregnancy and labour. By including practical hypnobirthing and mindfulness techniques as well as enhanced understanding of the psychology of birth I teach you what you need to know if you want to feel really prepared for your baby’s birth.

 

The techniques you learn will have you and your birth partner working together as a team, able to be calm, stay focused or to ask the questions you need to with a deep-seated confidence. When all of this is in place, baby can be born into a gentle, loving environment, with everyone connected in the experience through the preparation they have done.

 

Do you want to be in control, have the techniques to help you?  Do you need your partner to understand their role during the birth and how they can support you using hypnosis and mindfulness? If so, then this is the hypnobirthing class for you.

 

Hypnosis and mindfulness are not just relaxation techniques, when you are taught in a class you will really understand the difference.

This class goes very well alongside NCT classes (or indeed the birth preparation workshop I also run - see tab above) – if you have enjoyed the elements about oxytocin and adrenaline and birth hormones but feel you would like to know more about this – you can learn much more about what to do about it in this workshop, with practical techniques to increase the flow of oxytocin and reduce adrenaline.

What you will learn:

  • simple but effective hypnosis and mindfulness techniques that will keep you in your birthing zone

  • how your partner can support you using hypnosis and mindfulness 

  • to feel confident and look forward to your baby’s birth

  • how to ask the right questions and be in control of your choices and why that’s important

  • accelerated conditioning techniques so your body reacts and relaxes quickly to labour (accompanied by 9 mp3 tracks)

  • how to do a fear release with a qualified practitioner

  • which techniques work best and why during each contraction

  • why transition throws so many women off track and how you and your partner can handle it

  • the opportunity to reflect, discuss, share questions with a practitioner

  • ongoing support from me

  • exclusive access to the Mindful Mamma online class resource area

  • a discount code for purchase for any additional mp3 albums

  • a monthly newsletter with news, video, offers and events

 

So what are the benefits of the Mindful Mamma mindful hypnobirthing workshop? 

  • Calmer baby after birth (mums and midwives always comment on this)

  • Feeling calm, confident and positive about your birth

  • You are able to address and release any fear you may have of birthing and parenting

  • Your birthing partner will understand just how important their role is and rather than feeling helpless know what they can do to help

  • How to stay in your birthing zone and in control of your own responses

  • You’ll be able to make your environment instinctively comfortable, wherever you birth, using hypnosis, and NLP techniques.

  • How to build a trusting relationship with your midwife

 

The workshop is very informal and relaxed and is purposefully kept small to allow for people to ask questions and feel comfortable. 

 

Over 90%* of mums who have taken this class* say that the techniques helped them with their birth.

 

Why does my mindset affect my body during labour? 

Understanding how your mindset can affect your body during labour is very important.  Often the physiological preparation for birth is neglected in our society, while still a very central part in many other parts of the world. Even birth units today are beginning to change based on the idea that a woman needs to feel safe, private and unobserved during labour.

Did you know that if you are scared of birthing, or if your partner is scared of birth, this will impact on your birth. If you are calm and you and your partner feel confident and know what to do, you maximise your chances of a great birth. Feeling reassured and calm are essential for a good birth, we specialise and prioritise this with mindful hypnobirthing and teach you why this is so important.

 

How does hypnosis/hypnobirthing help me for birth? 

Hypnobirthing is different to just birth relaxation classes, it’s more like birth coaching.  Forget the myths about hypnosis, it is uniquely powerful and incredible. Women who have used hypnobirthing say that they experience a subtle shift in how well they feel and how prepared they are, often reporting that they were just very calm as well during labour.

 

Hypnosis is a very natural state of mind, we are in hypnosis every day without even realising it.   The class teaches you how and why using hypnosis can help you prepare for birth. There’s no hocus pocus or Derren Brown antics, just lots of relaxation and common sense.

 

This course explains the theory of the mind and body connection in simple terms using case studies and examples, then you learn techniques, including relaxation, creative visualisation and self-hypnosis.  

 

What about the birthing partner? 

The benefits for your birth partner are huge and also affect how you feel. There is a lot of focus on what to do on the day, the role of the birthing partner, and how both of you can prepare and work together to feel confident and in control. Birth partners say they love this course as it tells them “what happens, why it happens, and what to do about it”.

 

What do I get when I sign up for your mindful hypnobirthing class? 

When you attend a class you will receive:

  • The Mindful Hypnobirthing MP3s so you can start practising before the class

  • An exclusive class only online resource area, with more than 10 very short mp3 tracks to reinforce the techniques

  • 50% discount code for all the albums and mp3s

  • Ongoing support from a trained practitioner

  • Ongoing support in a facebook group, and support emails and messages sent after the class

  • Tons of confidence and a new found belief that you cando it!
