Do you wish for a positive birth experience using alternative and holistic preparation?
My method may be right for you.
For many, the idea of childbirth is inextricably linked with fear and pain. This mental association, developed over centuries, is so deeply anchored that we can hardly imagine giving birth in deep peace, without pain.
But as for other mammals, nature intended us women to give birth easily and gently.
What is hypnobirthing?
HypnoBirthing is a special method of birth preparation that helps expectant parents to strengthen their confidence in themselves. It prepares couples to welcome the birth of their baby with anticipation, confidence and calmness.
Together with your partner, you prepare mentally and physically in a positive way for your unique event: The self-determined, relaxed birth of your baby.
You learn the basic techniques of self-hypnosis, to relax lovingly as a couple, and connect well with your baby. You activate your internal resources and learn to free yourself from fears, obstructive beliefs and blocking thoughts.
Step by step you dissolve fears with the help of HypnoBirthing and replace them with positive and empowering thoughts.
Where does it come from?
The English gynaecologist Dr. Grantly Dick-Read (1890 – 1959) realized that in childbirth, women who expect pain and are afraid cannot relax. The tension hinders the natural birth process, causing additional pain and even complications. A vicious circle develops – the fear-tension-pain cycle. Dick-Read was convinced that confidence and relaxation can be learned and contribute to a gentle birth.
In the 50s and 60s, childbirth became a medical matter and giving birth in the hospital was normalized. Being out of their own realm of power, women’s fears were further fuelled. Marie F. Mongan, a woman from the USA, developed a countermeasure in the 80s: HypnoBirthing. This is the origin of today’s methods, where you learn to trust yourself and your elemental force to give birth to your baby under your own power.
In the course we work with hypnosis. This is not irrational or magic, but a scientifically based method for birth preparation. With hypnosis techniques, visualisation and breathing exercises you learn to put yourself into a natural state of deep relaxation while being highly concentrated and mobile at the same time. This is the optimal state for giving birth. Hypnosis allows direct access to your subconscious mind to replace fearful images of birth with images of a beautiful, gentle birth: transforming fear into joy and confidence.
Good knowledge about the natural birth processes is essential. This is a basic necessity for a mother’s confidence in her body. It is also important for your self-confidence in picturing your ideal, self-determined birth, and to be able to remain true to your imagining.
The Three Pillars
What Makes My Method Different?
What I pass on, I have experienced and tried myself. My method is a further developed, updated form of HypnoBirthing. Techniques from NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), mental and psychological training are also woven in, to give you the best and most efficient tools of birth preparation.
You can overcome possible complications in a relaxed and peaceful way, instead of feeling unnecessary pressure to experience a “dream birth”.
I strengthen your trust in childbirth companions, also in doctors and midwives, so that you can feel safe and secure during the birth.
You’ll learn to find your inner deep relaxed state again, even in the case of distractions or a changed situation during the birth.
During and after the course I am personally available to you by phone or message until the birth of your child and will be happy to advise you on any questions or uncertainties that may arise.
Go With The Birth Flow
The tools of my method are easy to understand and flexible to implement. They are practical for any situation, to use as best for you and your baby. You are unique, and so is every birth.
Even those who have undergone painful and traumatic births in the past have been able to have a surprisingly gentle, healing experience with HypnoBirthing.
HypnoBirthing has proven its worth and efficiency. Together with hundreds of thousands of moms worldwide (including many prominent personalities like the Duchess Kate of Cambridge and the actress Angelina Jolie for example), I experienced the benefits myself when I gave birth to my daughter in Mongolia. If I can do it, you can do it!
