How does relaxation make a difference in labour?
When in a relaxed, calm state, our breathing is even and rhythmical, ensuring an optimum level of oxygen is circulating the body. During labour, this helps to keep the baby stable, stimulates the production of birthing hormones, helps keep blood pressure steady, conserves energy and enables the uterus to work effectively.
How does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis is a natural state, which we all experience many times a day. It is a time when your conscious mind (analytical/rational) takes a step back and your subconscious mind (feelings/memories/emotions) comes to the forefront, much like in a daydreaming state. Once the critical, analytical part of your mind relaxes, you become more receptive to positive suggestions and affirmations.
Group workshops are conducted in Derby over 3 sessions, 3 hours each, and are a great way to meet other expecting parents. They are small and friendly with no more than 3 or 4 couples per workshop, meaning there is plenty of opportunity for questions and group discussion.

Tailored to meet your needs, at a time that suits you, one-to-one sessions can be conducted over a series of evenings, weekdays or weekends and can take place in the comfort of your own home or at my practice in Derby.
