"We have nine months to get our head and body around giving birth and the more prepared we are both physically and mentally, then the greater chance there is of you having a relaxed safe and comfortable birth weather that ,means medical interventions, epidurals or a natural birth"
When I meet couples for the first time, I can see how anxious, stressed and worried they are and over the months, the changes are visibly positive and upbeat along with been ready and prepared to meet with their baby on the outside!
You, as parents, have enormous natural resources within yourselves which, when used effectively, can enable you to take more control of your pregnancy, pain management and the birth of your baby while striking a healthy and safe balance between medicine and nature.
Whether you are relaxed about birthing, want to deepen your bond with your baby or are afraid of giving birth or just want to be in control of your birth experience, Hypnobirthing Birth With Ease™ is a great system that works alongside the medical profession and embraced in the maternity hospitals in Ireland.
Hypnobirthing techniques work very effectively with home births, water births, hospital births and birthing centres. It's about choices and choosing safely what kind of birth you would like to have with your baby.
Hypnobirthing has been around for over 30 years and came to me as a result of working with a couple who were trying to conceive, became pregnant and asked me if I would work with them through their pregnancy and birth. It was an absolute pleasure to work with this couple and to follow them on their journey of giving birth in Dublin's National Maternity Hospital.
Since then, I have helped thousands of couples break the cycle of fear, pain and tension through childbirth hypnobirthing classes. I use relaxation techniques, breathing methods, guided imagery, self-hypnosis and personal empowerment techniques that build confidence and inner strength for mums and dads to be.
