Hypnosis for Birth
Labour of Love offers Hypnosis CD’s and a workbook available through this website
I am a trained Hynobirthing® instructor and certified Advanced Hypnosis practitioner.
This means she can hypnotise you:
- to have faster and better results with shifting beliefs and fears you have about labour
- to assist in releasing any ‘tension, stress and worries’ you have about labour
- to believe in yourself and your ability to cope with the ‘pain’ associated with labouring
- to clear any past labour/birth trauma that you have not let go of
- so you can visualise your labour clearly, to assist you to feel empowered, calm and clear in your mind about your imminent labour journey
Hypnosis for birth will teach you how to remain completely calm and at peace, yet empowered during your labour, regardless of where you are birthing.
It also assists you in understanding the importance of how to ‘surrender’ to the ‘intensity’ of the contractions, which in turn will assist you to trust in your body’s ability to labour and give birth – naturally!
‘During my many years of working with women I have found the use of hypnosis in preparation for labour to be the most successful way my pregnant clients can learn how to breathe, surrender and let go mentally and physically in preparation for labour’.
As a result of learning hypnosis for birth you will feel:
- mentally strong and empowered about your imminent labour experience
- confident about going into labour
- excited about your labour journey and meeting your beautiful baby
- completely calm and at peace with yourself in the lead up to your childbirth
- fearless about the ‘pain’ as you will learn skills in how to surrender completely to the ‘intensity’
- that you can trust your body and its ability because you will be reminded that you have everything you need physically, to give birth
The key to using hypnosis for birth is practicing the methods taught in my workshops, one-on-one sessions and listening to my CD and Mp3 downloads.
