Hypnobirthing in London

The ability to manage and control pain through the use of hypnosis has been recognised for many years. Hypnobirthing simply expands on this area to teach these techniques to expectant mothers so they have a more comfortable birth. At our clinic we work with pregnant women and their partners to help them learn not only the pain control techniques to assist with labour but also to get in touch with their natural birthing instinct. This means working with you to understand exactly what feels right for you whilst keeping you and your baby safe. Currently we run Hypnobirthing in London sessions at our clinic on a one to one basis so that we can address your individual needs.

  • Helps you to feel calmer and more relaxed

In many cases women are forced to have the labour that others want them to have rather than what is best for them. By choosing our Hypnobirthing classes you will become aware of the options that are out there for you which may help to make your birth easier. Our classes not only encompass self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques but give you guidance on birth preparation as well. As a specialist pain control hypnotherapist we can also teach you deep anaesthesia and  pain reducton methods which can reduce the need for medication.

Hypnobirthing in London Sessions

Currently we only work with our clients on a one-to-one basis as classes may not be suitable for our clients individual needs. Our intensive sessions last for six hours and these are usually split into two hourly sessions once every two weeks. Of course because our sessions are bespoke we can change the way in which the sessions are conducted to suit your timetable. The optimal time to begin your sessions is at the 30 week mark however you will still see a benefit if you begin earlier or later.

We are experts in teaching self hypnosis which is an incredibly powerful tool in helping you to feel more relaxed and calm not only during your pregnancy but when you are in labour as well. We can also help you to overcome any individual fears or anxieties which may be creating any negative feelings or nerves. If you have any medical issues such as nausea, phobias or stress hypnosis can help to alleviate these. During our sessions you can expect to taught:

  • Forms of Massage which can help you to release painkilling endorphins
  • Visualisation skills to enhance relaxation and self hypnosis
  • To write a comprehensive Birth Plan
  • Different birth positions and how they can help you have an easier birth
  • Massage techniques to help you avoid an episiotomy or tearing
  • How to involve your partner in your birth
  • To feel calm and in control when communicating with your medical team
