Conception, Pregnancy and Birth – nowadays many women use hypnotherapy to ease conception anxiety and also to manage the birthing process and the pain. This is with the use of taught techniques, including progressive relaxation and visualisation (with peaceful soothing images and sounds in your ‘safe place’). The aim is to help to reduce anxiety fears for an easier, calm transition for mother and baby. Effective breathing and deep relaxation aids in the production of hormone Oxytocin, for effective and less painful contractions.
Enjoying Time off work with baby and preparing for your return – many women feel anxious about taking time out – whilst others really look forward to it. Whatever your point of view, it is a time that is special for you and your baby. It is also a time that will allow you the space to review what you want to do with your life in the future. Some women extend their maternity leave, others choose to learn new skills and make a structured career transition.
Whatever you choose, this is a positive and highly enriching time in your life and I will be delighted to help you on this journey!
