Bryony offers private hypnobirthing sessions to assist women and their support partners to prepare for birth. Hypnosis can provide a set of tools and techniques that increase our ability to support the natural process of birth and to access a calm state of mind in which to prepare for and birth our babies.
Hypnosis is becoming more and more used as a birthing technique as so many women find it a very effective pain management and anxiety reducing tool in pregnancy and labour.
“I must confess, I did not know much about hypnobirthing before signing up for the sessions with Bryony! However, it turned out to be a REAL revelation!
The antenatal sessions helped me a great deal; not only to address and overcome many of my birth-related fears; but also to use the lovely mp3 tracks for relaxation and birth preparation.
During labour, I could not believe how effective those tracks have been in calming me down and mentally helping me ‘endure’ very strong and frequent contractions!
Hypnobirthing has been really inspiring and Bryony’s professionalism and care is unrivalled! I would definitely HIGHLY recommend it! you won’t know how effective it is, until you have tried it!”
Bryony also uses some of these techniques in her pregnancy yoga classes and if you are attending these classes, you will find that they reinforce the power of the hypnobirthing techniques at every class. Yoga and hypnosis are very complimentary and work beautifully alongside each other.
