Welcome to Aspirations Hypnobirthing

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing uses your ability to prepare your mind and body to work in harmony to achieve a calm and peaceful birth. Hypnobirthing allows you to remain relaxed and empowers you to be in control of your body and your birth.

The course encompasses easy to learn and use techniques including breathing, visualisation, deep relaxation and massage. Together we will use hypnosis to release any preconceived worries or fears you may have of birthing your baby.

Hypnobirthing provides you and your chosen birthing partner with the tools, resources and knowledge to achieve the best possible birth for you all. Empowerment and confidence are built as we explore together, how the body functions during birth, and how you can use the techniques to achieve a more efficient comfortable birthing experience.

Hypnobirthing actively involves the birth partner. The role of the birth partner is an integral and important part of the process. It can be immensely empowering to know you have played a positive role in the birth of the baby, and can be a wonderful starting point for bonding.

About Me

I am the mother of two beautiful daughters, age 6 and 3, both of which I birthed using hypnobirthing. I was so amazed by my experience of birth, being quite sceptical initially, I found myself desperately wanting to share the empowering experience I had with other expectant mothers. What better way than to teach others what I had learnt.

I therefore chose to train as a practitioner. I am an enthusiastic, friendly and patient teacher. I am passionate about empowering couples to achieve the best possible birthing experience they can. I am a warm and compassionate person who can support you through the training process and beyond.

As a mother who has used hypnobirthing to deliver two beautiful baby girls into the world I know it works and have confidence that it is truly possible to achieve a personally satisfying birth for all involved.
