What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing is a philosophy and a comprehensive birth education programme which teaches you and your birthing partner simple, yet specific self-hypnosis techniques to help you experience a calmer, more comfortable birth. Going back to basics instinctive birthing, as all mothers do in nature. In HypnoBirthing birth is looked upon as a natural expression of life, that helps mothers release fears and can experience birth without pain.

HypnoBirthing helps women discover the art and joy of learning to call upon your own natural birthing instincts, by using your body's own natural relaxants- it is based on the belief that severe discomfort, stress and fear does not need to be a natural accompaniment of birthing.

When a woman is properly prepared and trusts her birthing body, a very normal, natural process takes place that brings birthing back to basics, as historically was for all mothers in nature. It's a philosophy about utilising the brain and neuroscience, focusing solely on the mother and the birthing partner by cultivating respect to help you bring your baby into the world in a calm and gentle manner. The programme helps you and your birthing partner take responsibility in your own birth, feel educated, prepared, more confident, and calm about your birth.

You have the power as a woman, within you to connect with your body to have an instinctive birth; a woman is endowed with the ability to call upon a neurological, physiological, psychological, emotional and spiritual response to birth, without the necessity of external devices. "A healthy woman, carrying a healthy baby, experiencing a healthy pregnancy should be able to experience an instinctive birth."

You and your birthing partner will be supported on your journey with education on child birthing. You will be taught self- hypnosis, special breathing techniques and visualisations. You will be given the skills to release any fears and be given the ability to trust your body. With HypnoBirthing you will not be in a trance or sleep state, you will be fully awake, aware and fully in control- just in a deep state of relaxation to bring your baby into the world in a calm, safe, more comfortable environment and even more joyously, in a shorter length of time without the need for unnecessary intervention and Active labour management.

About Sharee

In 2006 I studied access to Midwifery then specialised in Mental Health Nursing and Social Psychology. My time working as a Clinical Hypnotherapist has helped me support many women with fears, stress relief, confidence building and relaxation. When I was pregnant my hopes and dreams for a natural birth were quickly dismissed by health care professionals, and as many other women, my birthing experience was tuned in to a medical event, which resulted in immense pain and trauma.

My heart and soul told me that there must be another way. I felt unsupported and alone in my journey to motherhood. This is what stems my passion, as I know there are so many other women in need of education, support and self-care during one of the most important times of our life.

My life lessons, career, and compassion for women’s mental health has led me to specialising, helping women and their families at this wonderful time.
