Hypnobirthing is the use of hypnosis to promote childbirth as the natural bodily function it truly is and at the same time enabling birthing women and those around them to have a positive experience. There is also the added benefit that hypnotic and positive thinking techniques enable the birthing woman and those around her to remain calm and in control, no matter what, no matter where (Judith Flood, 2014).
4 week course (1 hour per week) just for you or you and your birthing partner.
Can be extended to include feeding or anything else you would like.
Includes Judith Flood's book ...... and CD.
While it is an exciting and amazing time, the early days of parenthood can be a challenge, adjusting to life with your new little one. Practically and emotionally this can take a little time, and we are here every step of the way to support you and hold your hand if you need it up until 6 weeks following your birth. We can provide an opportunity to talk about your birth experience, feeding, safe sleeping, close and loving relationships and the connection to baby brain development.
Sometimes a difficult or traumatic experience around birth can leave a woman, birth partner or birth worker with painful memories which can then infiltrate into other areas of their lives, affecting their everyday activities and/or plans for the future. Symptoms of trauma vary and can be, although not limited to, panic attacks, guilt, anger, depression, sadness, which can trigger the "fight or flight" reaction. Even though a birth or event around birth, such as breastfeeding, may have a good outcome, those experiencing the event may carry with them difficult emotions from that time.
I have been trained by Ellie Cooke in the amazing MAM 3 Step Rewind Technique, adapted by Mark Harris and Mia Scotland. Rewind is historically an NLP Technique/Pattern. This is a tried and tested, safe and effective technique to facilitate you coming to terms with what happened and allow you to move forward. Your memory will remain but free of those associated strong and difficult emotions. You can talk about your story, or not, whatever you prefer - the outcome is not dependent on discussing the event.
Often effects of the treatment continue improving into the future as the brain processes and the memory can be recalled without the strong emotional reaction.
It takes a village to raise a child ............. breastfeeding can take a little while for you and your baby to get used to, after all we would expect that when learning any new skill. How you feed your baby and the experience you have can stay with you for life, so It is important that those around you are supporting you and are a part of your incredible breastfeeding journey.
We can support you and your family with breastfeeding and where things aren't going to plan, we can explore all the options to ensure your journey is as positive as possible.

A new and unique service for parents offering a traditional and professional standard of care covering all ages through childhood up to 5 years. Our bespoke service is here to help and support you with:
Tongue tie (also known as ankyloglossia) is caused by a short or tight membrane under the tongue (lingual frenulum). Where the membrane is attached at, or close to the tongue tie, the tongue tip may look blunt, forked or have a heart shaped appearance. However, where the membrane is attached further back, the tongue may look normal.
Research suggests that approximately 1 in 10 babies may be born with some membrane under the tongue, but only about half of these babies display significantly reduced tongue function, making breast or bottle feeding difficult. These babies are likely to benefit from treatment to release the restriction that the membrane is having on the tongue and enable the baby to feed effectively (www.tongue-tie.org.uk)
We can provide tongue function assessment, where required, together with feeding information and support. Please note we do not provide a frenulogomy (tongue tie division) service at present and can discuss referral options with you if required.
