Hypnobirthing . Health . Happiness
Welcome mother-to-be! This is where it all begins... a calm, relaxed, empowering space to prepare yourself for your baby's birth day and your own passage into motherhood.
If you're wondering whether HypnoBirthing is for you, you might like to read my first birth story, followed by my second (the reason I went on to train as a HypnoBirthing Practitioner). If anything, they will give you a little insight into why I believe every woman should have access to quality, in-depth childbirth education that doesn't simply tell them what to expect, but prepares them emotionally, mentally and physically for a momentously life-changing event. My first HypnoBirth transformed my view of birth and life in immeasurable ways and I am honoured to be part of a global community of practitioners who passionately believe that women can have easier, faster and more comfortable births without unnecessary intervention. How?
Much like when you change the way you view Monday, your whole week changes...
Join me and prepare for birthing in the most peaceful possible way.
What I offer
Beautiful Beginnings Consultations
Meet me for a cup of tea to talk about your vision. One of my biggest beliefs is that every mother-to-be should follow her gut (and her belly) when choosing every single one of the people she invites into her space while pregnant, including her childbirth educator. This is where you ask me all your questions to decide if HypnoBirthing is for you and decide whether I'm your cup of tea.
I teach the official HypnoBirthing Institute Mongan Method course. This is run over five, 2.5 hour sessions and includes official course material: Book, CD, relaxations and affirmations. While the courses are run in English, I am very excited to now be able to offer Dutch, Spanish and French books and audio material required (relaxation exercises etc) to my international clients. Group courses are a wonderful way to meet and connect with other parents. Who knows, you could find friends for life.
If you feel you would prefer more intimate one-on-one teaching and discussion then this might be for you. It's still run over 5 weeks with a 2.5 hour session once a week.
While I believe that the greatest value of this course comes from face-to-face meetings, virtual live courses can be arranged in special circumstances.
Do I offer Express Courses?
The Mongan Method course is run over five weeks for very good reason. It is designed specifically to give mothers (and their partners) time to work through very important questions and time to make relaxing deeply and trusting your body second nature. The practice pays off. Like birth, the preparation should not be rushed. So much of our lives are rushed that I urge you to take the time to just relish the full course. Consider it invaluable self care and put it down in your diary as a weekly meeting with your baby that cannot be missed.
If you are at the end of your pregnancy and have only just discovered the course, get in touch and we will see what we can do to still gently prepare you and release any fears.
