Hello my name Joanne I am a registered midwife and a hypnotherapist, I feel Pregnancy and childbirth is an amazing, inspiring, and creative process of bringing life into the world, one of the best experiences in your life. During my work as a midwife I became aware that childbirth is often over medicalised, I found that women often fear and doubt their ability to give birth to their babies naturally without the use of epidural analgesia. I believe that women have a natural ability to give birth to their babies, and during this process should feel empowered, relaxed and in control. Using hypnosis is an effective tool to enable women to remain centred, focused and relaxed during their birth experience. This relaxation and hypnotherapy CD can help you: overcome the challenge of childbirth; trust your body's natural instinctive ability to birth your baby; encourage you to remain positive, calm and empowered; manage and reduce pain; minimise tension and anxieties related to childbirth; and teach breathing exercises.
