Working with expectant couples here in Didsbury is a favourite specialism of mine as the sessions create a unique opportunity in which a couple comes together to bond more deeply in relation to bringing their precious baby into the world and to grow as human beings.
Although being pregnant can be exciting, emotions are tainted by thoughts of childbirth, often eliciting a sense of fearful anticipation and uncertainty. As all the couples who have worked with me agree, preparing your mind for birth is extremely beneficial in ensuring you thoroughly enjoy the reminder of your pregnancy and have the best birth experience possible.
Your birth is all about you, your expectations, your beliefs and most importantly your wishes. Because of this we will explore and re-visit your needs, anxieties and wishes continually throughout your sessions so that together we ensure that we create a birth that feels hugely empowering and perfect for you.
Easibirthing® is an accredited-evidence based holistic birth education course, developed in the UK in conjunction with midwives. The course has a heavy emphasis on the deeply relaxing and powerful state of hypnosis but you will also enjoy learning specialised breathing techniques, birth planning, talking therapy, meditation, visualisation and yogic movement.
I love receiving all the birth stories from my clients in Manchester about how the Hypnobirthing not only “really worked!” but also increased their ability to flow though daily life with ease.
Easibirthing® has the potential to:
- Help you to create and experience a birth with positive memories attached
- Reduce or eliminate your fears
- Enable you to deeply relax physically, mentally and emotionally
- Significantly reduce your need for pain relieving medication
- Increase the rate of spontaneous vaginal birth
- Enable you to maintain and control labour sensations

- Help you to have a calmer baby
- Overcome needle or hospital phobia
- Reduce morning sickness
- Help to turn breech babies
I work with not only first time parents but parents who already have children. I also adapt sessions to help ladies who have suffered previous birth trauma and/or miscarriages as these situations create a uniquely challenging and often anxiety-ridden experience for women and couples. Easibirthing® is also adapted to women who are having a planned C-section or are planning to embark on a vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC).
