Discover how much easier birth is when you are truly confident & relaxed during labour and birth!
Giving birth is a natural, healthy, normal process that the female body is - thankfully - designed to accomplish with far greater ease, than some of the less than positive birth stories and experiences that all too many of us sadly have been exposed to, may suggest.
However, all those "less than encouraging" birth stories - commonly sharply highlighting the potential of pain and complications during labour, not to mention the somewhat unpredictable nature of birth - directly shape the way we think and feel about birth. And - for better or worse - due to the all powerful Mind-Body connection, the way you think and feel about birth profoundly impacts and shapes, not only the way you experience birth, but also the overall flow and ease of your baby's birth!
Good antenatal preparation, that carefully promotes a thoroughly positive outlook on labour and birth, builds a profound sense of confidence and trust in your body's innate ability for birth and trains your ability to relax deeply throughout labour is therefore absolute key to ensure that labour and birth can unfold with the greatest ease - and comfort - and that any potential need for medical assistance or interventions can be minimised or, in many cases, eliminated altogether!
This is exactly what my confidence building HypnoBirthing antenatal classes provide!
Unlike most conventional antenatal classes, my HypnoBirthing classes have the Mind-Body connection at their core. They blend evidence based active birth education that provides empowering knowledge & understanding of the inner & outer workings of labour & birth with proven, deep relaxation tools and exercises that nurture a deep sense of confidence and trust in your innate ability to birth your baby safely, calmly and gently. You will gain a thorough understanding of what birth needs to work well, how your emotions around birth impact the flow and outcome of birth, and what can (and needs!) to be done to enable you to trust, relax and let go in labour, so that you can support the gentlest, safest and easiest birth possible for your baby and yourself.
With my confidence building birth preparation classes you will learn how to:
Reduce anxiety & boost relaxation and wellbeing before, during and after birth
Navigate the uncertainties of birth confidently, knowledgeably and calmly
Maximise the likelyhood of a natural birth and minimise any pain - without drugs!
Feel calm and in control during labour to support the ease and flow of your baby's birth &
minimise any need for medical assistance
Protect yourself and your baby from unnecessary trauma & have a positive experience of birth -
regardless of whether it's natural, induced or by cesarean
Continue to use the powerful relaxation tools after birth to smooth your transition into parenthood, support ease of breastfeeding, minimise likelyhood of postnatal depression &
give your family the best possible start!
"The time and support you have given me has been invaluable. Our sessions have had a remarkable impact on me and have really helped me deal with what has been a very difficult final trimester. You helped me find my own inner strength and positivity and I really thank you for that. I now feel I have the means to be able to embrace the birth and recovery, whatever happens.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Nicola, Mum of 5, Bristol
"I wanted to say thank you, Eva, for all the hypnobirthing coaching over the past few months, it enabled me to have the most amazing birth experience (more than I could possibly imagine), and that the whole process from waters breaking to 'babe in arms' was less than 12 hours long (about five hours labouring in total) and much more tolerable than a day of late pregnancy..."
Tilly, First Baby, Bristol
"Thank you very much for a really lovely course! We really enjoyed it and you, and have found our other classes a bit redundant after experiencing such a wonderful one. Your way of teaching and communicating your passion is such a gift, so thank you for continuing to share it. We are truly grateful."
Jessica, First Baby, Bristol
Here's what my clients have said about my classes:
We had Ruby Belle on Tuesday evening. We're all doing really well. The Hypnobirthing tools really helped - the labour was quite long but I was relaxed throughout.
At one stage during late labour, we had the fan going (whilst I was in the birth pool) and I even said "it's like being on holiday", which the midwife thought was the best quote she'd ever heard a labouring woman say!
Above is a photo taken around that time - it shows just how relaxed and happy I was and was taken when I was about 9cm dilated!
Ruby is a lovely content baby. She's been feeding well. Adam was amazing support throughout the whole thing and is an amazing Dad.
Thanks for all your help with hypnobirthing. I've been using the rainbow relaxation this week to help me sleep in the day, which has been really good. I also think Hypnobirthing has really helped us generally this week. We've been out every day since she was born and I've been feeding her whilst out. We both feel really confident and relaxed about being out with her.
I'll definitely recommend you to any future friends having babies. Kindest regards and thank you again!
