Relaxed Childbirth - is that even possible
Here is some information about Hypnobirthing. If you have any questions, let me know.
WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING ABOUT?
Hypnobirthing is an evidenced based practice and philosophy of birthing in a relaxed, calm manner. The psychological preparation is just as important as the physical preparation. It prepares a mother and her partner mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually to birth instinctively - working with her body and baby with full confidence in nature.
We do this in a way that embeds the messages deeply in your subconscious during my sessions - using hypnosis. The same relaxed state you will use to bring your baby into this world.

WHY DO YOU REQUIRE ALL YOUR CLIENTS TO BE HYPNOBIRTHING READY?
With my experience of doula work, I have learnt and seen mums have better and shorter births - not because my massage techniques are better than ever.... but because we have done the work needed prior.
Personally, I desire a positive birth experience for my clients and found that a fearless approach, a readiness to make informed decisions, taking charge of the process and having the right team is paramount to a good experience. HypnoBirth partners (usually husbands, here in Singapore) are also super involved and enjoy the experience more - especially with doula support. The birth process becomes shorter, pleasant and positively transforming. As a Hypnotherapist, I facilitate in holding your sacred space and guiding you into relaxation and peace as you labour in this wonderful process of love and life.
