I offer additional support for anyone who is going through an IVF journey, or suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum. 

Welcome!

First of all congratulations on your pregnancy, and I'm so happy that you've found me. 

If you are feeling excited, overwhelmed, fearful or just unsure of what to expect from your upcoming birth you're in very good company as I definitely felt all of the above and more. 

I'm excited to work with you on your journey and give you the skills you need, alongside some science based facts to help you feel both in control and calm with whatever birth you have.  

Hypnobirthing is full birth preparation where you gain an in depth understanding of how your body really works in the labour process, an education into the maternity system in the UK and what options you actually have, as well as getting a relaxation tool kit that will help you feel calm, confident and in control of any kind birth you are planning.

I am a firm believer that knowledge is power, and through a full hypnobirthing birth preparation course you will gain enough knowledge to be confident to make your own decisions about the kind of birth you want, and to stack the odds in your favour that your birth experience will be a positive one. 

Based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, I offer both in-person and online courses. 

So, what is Hypnobirthing? 
 

Let me start with the elephant in the room, you may be thinking hypnobirthing sounds weird. Maybe you’re worried that I’ll tell you to go to sleep and tell your subconscious how everything is going to be ok… Perhaps one of you is sceptical and is concerned that the name of it just sounds hippy and wishy-washy. This is exactly how we started; and my husband had to be really convinced that it wouldn’t be some hocus pocus waste of money.

So, what REALLY is hypnobirthing? 

It is a way of preparing for your birth by making sure you are fully informed of your choices and the science behind what really happens.

My courses are complete antenatal courses, preparing you and your birth partner for labour and the birth of your baby. Right from the moment you feel your first twinge, all the way to your post-natal care.  

I will provide you with knowledge about the way your body changes during labour to help you understand how you can work with what it is telling you and how you can manage any pain that you might feel. You will learn how to feel in control of what is going on for you, and aware of the options that are open to you every step of the way. I will teach you techniques to help you stay calm and feel confident during the birth of your baby to help you manage all situations for any kind of birth.

If you would like to find out more about hypnobirthing before booking a course, then please do get in touch as I offer free consultation.

So, what are the benefits of hypnobirthing?

There are many, many benefits. Here are some to give you an idea of what you could expect after completing a course.

  • Helps to be able to enjoy your pregnancy without anxiety and fear around your upcoming labour and birth.
  • Will give you tools to feel calmer and more relaxed during the birth of your baby.
  • You’ll be informed and gain knowledge about how your body works during labour and what you can do to help.
  • Knowledge is power, and the more informed you are the more in control you will feel and be.
  • In some cases, birth is less painful and less need for pain relief.
  • The birth partner becomes informed about their role and its importance which can really help on the day.
  • You will learn the importance of not being afraid to ask questions and that you have options and choices around your birth.  
  • The calming techniques can also be used once your baby is born and in the early newborn days. 
  • Most people who have done a hypnobirthing course use their techniques in everyday life to get relief from situations that may feel stressful. 

Classes and Courses

My courses are designed to give you practical, science based information to arm you with the knowledge you need in order to feel calm and in control during your labour and birth.
