Hypnosis for Birth
Hypnosis for Birth Workshops
The Hypnosis for Birth workshop from Better Birth & baby is an informative, effective and fun course facilitated by hypnobirthing mum and childbirth educator Debbie Willis. Having completed her training with Natal Hypnotherapy, Debbie has been teaching hypnobirthing to couples since 2012, having used the techniques herself and wanting to help others have a positive birth experience like she has.
And if you don’t believe what you hear about the effectiveness of hypnosis for childbirth, clinical research shows that using these techniques results in reduced pain, shorter labour and less surgical intervention. You can read more about the benefits for mums (and birth partners!) at www.betterbirthandbaby.co.uk, along with more info on how hypnobirthing works including some common myths.
The Better Birth & Baby course is an affordable one-day group workshop for you and your birth partner that covers the following:
• Natural ways to manage pain in child birth
• Self-hypnosis hypnobirthing skills to overcome fear and increase your confidence and trust in your ability to give birth
• Effective breathing and deep relaxation techniques
• How fear or anxiety have a negative impact on your body during birth and how to reduce them
• Ways in which your birth partner can help you achieve a deeply relaxed state
• Practical techniques to help you stay calm and relaxed during birth
• How your body works during labour and what you can do to help it
• The importance of the birth partner’s role and practical tools and techniques they can utilise to keep you calm, relaxed and ease discomfort during birth
• How your emotions change during the physiological process of labour and the signs to look for to get a clearer idea of when to go to hospital / call the midwife
Courses are kept small (three or four couples usually) so that individual needs can be addressed. The course is relaxed and informal with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions. The workshop includes your very own workbook detailing the information you will learn on the course, hand-outs, a hypnosis download with the familiar voice of your practitioner and full telephone or email support until the birth of your baby. Please get in touch to find the next available workshop date and book your place. Also, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
The Better Birth & Baby Hypnosis for Birth workshop is also a perfect complement to NHS and NCT antenatal classes as it cover areas that are not covered on the majority of these courses. Also have a read of the birth stories from mums and birth partners who have attended my courses at www.betterbirthandbaby.co.uk where there is further information on how Better Birth & Baby workshops differ from other hypnobirthing courses.
