I first discovered hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my youngest.
I had a very long and traumatic labour with my first and I spent a lot of the post-natal period dealing with that.
By the time I was pregnant with my youngest, I was in the middle of completing my diploma in hypnotherapy. I had learnt about the wonders of the subconscious mind, and I couldn’t wait to put some of the skills I had learnt into practice during childbirth.
I submerged myself in all things ‘positive birth’ wrote my own hypnoses scripts and enjoyed listening to them every evening. I had never felt so connected with my body or my baby.
After my first birth I was adamant, I would never EVER be induced again. But, halfway through my pregnancy, I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. And after weighing up all the options and risks we decided that a second induction was probably the way forward for us.
So despite many of the external factors of both births being similar, the difference between the two was night and day.
I felt relaxed, calm and happy throughout the contractions, I felt empowered and ready for anything that came. And I was so buzzing to finally meet my baby. I knew my choices and wasn’t afraid to advocate for myself. It was truly a positive experience.
Having entered the world of new motherhood both from a place of trauma and from a place of empowerment. I have seen just what a difference it makes. I am so excited to share the tools and techniques I used, to help as many people as possible feel empowered during birth, no matter the road it takes.
In the middle of the two births, I experienced 7 miscarriages. It was devastating.
Therefore I really understand the struggles and emotions that come with both pregnancy after loss and birthing after birth trauma.
When I was looking into hypnobirthing when pregnant after loss, I struggled to find a course that understood these emotions. I feel that decisions you make after suffering loss, may be different to those you would have made if it was your first pregnancy.
I’m here for that and I understand that.
I’m here for you – no matter your fear, no matter your situation. I hold space for you.
I help you enter birth feeling strong and powerful – ready and prepared.
