Would you like to learn self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques to help prepare your mind and body for giving birth?
Every birth is unique and the Easibirthing course is about empowering you to manage your own individual experience, not fear it. The Easibirthing method will teach you how to use hypnosis for pain management and boost your trust in your body so that you can enter labour feeling calm, confident and in control, whatever type of birth you are planning.
The course is informal, friendly and supportive and the group size is kept to a small number (6 maximum).
The course is ideal for you if you are 24+ weeks pregnant.
What will I learn:
The course is run over 5 sessions and teaches relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques that will help you from the very first stages of labour all the way through to bonding with your baby and adjusting to parenthood.
You’ll also be supported by a comprehensive information pack as well as eight CDs/MP3s so that you can practice and prepare at home.
Dates & Times:

The course is also available as a 1:1 session to suit your dates!

I trained with Sharon Mustard, a specialist in hypno-psychotherapy for fertility, childbirth and post natal mental health. You can read more about the Easibirthing method on her website http://www.easibirthing.co.uk/
Clinical studies have shown that hypnobirthing can:
- Reduce or eliminate fear
- Produce pervasive relaxation
- Significantly diminish or eliminate the need for medication; thereby eliminating its risks and post-delivery effects for both mother and child
- Increase the rate of spontaneous vaginal birth, reducing the need for intervention
- Shorten the period of labour; by reducing anxiety during each stage
- Make it possible to manage and control of sensations of discomfort
- Promote a steady recovery
- Foster and increase positive emotions during the entire birth process
- Help you create of an experience which has positive memories attached
- Reduce incidence of post-natal depression
- Stimulate and maintain a strong energy level into the post-delivery phase
- Promote lactation for breast-feeding
- Result in a calmer, more laid-back baby
