Core Yoga Hypnobirthing

Teaching pregnancy yoga I noticed how receptive pregnant ladies were to deep relaxation, breathing techniques and visualisations. I had such positive feedback from the benefits of this in pregnancy and birth that I wanted to learn more. After reading about hypnobirthing I knew I had found what I was looking for and the Katharine Graves course fulfilled everything I had hoped for.

Hypnobirthing is a complete package for birth preparation, not only teaching mothers or couples all about the birthing process, but how to enjoy the experience and bring baby into the world in a calm, drug free way. Fathers or birthing partners are shown the importance of their role and are given all the tools to help and support in an effective way. Practising the techniques together forms strong bonds between mother, father and baby. The course covers such diverse, yet important topics from “how to understand the health care options available and making the right choices” to “massage”, from “the power of the mind” to “water births”. The course is relaxed and enjoyable and the positive outlook and energy that forms the backbone of the learning experience ensures you leave feeling confident and smiling.

The course is 12 hours and is run as 4 sessions, usually over 2 days. On reserving a place on a class you will be sent the Hypnobirthing Relaxation CD, Colour and Calmness. At the class you will also be given The Hypnobirthing Book and a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home. After the class I am there for you to answer questions by phone or email.

Pregnancy Yoga

Being pregnant is one of the most challenging, exciting and life-changing time’s in a women’s life and you often feel like you are on an emotional roller-coaster. As your posture adapts to the growing uterus, your posture will change and lower back pain may occur.

Yoga practice during pregnancy is very beneficial to reduce stress, control your mood swings, balance and calm your mind and enhance a healthy sleep pattern. The gentle postures help to relieve fluid retention, improve circulation, flexibility, stamina, strength and help to open the pelvis to prepare for labour. The breathing techniques are a wonderful aid to ease labour pain and encourage you to focus your mind.

Ryedale Hypnotherapy

Hypnobirthing teaches you breathing, visualisation, and powerful Hypnosis techniques. These enable you to take control and remain calm, confident and in control during your baby’s labour, birth, and beyond. In essence, to have the best possible birth for you, your Partner and your baby. Hypnobirthing has grown massively in the last ten years due to the fact it works and most Midwives are fully supportive of it.

I am your local Teacher, a Hypnobirthing mum of two myself and a qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have been teaching Hypnobirthing locally for seven years now. I cover Malton, Scarborough and the wider Ryedale area. I have trained in both Marie Mongan and Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing methods. My skills as a Hypnotherapist mean I can also help you with other minor pregnancy issues should you need it e.g. sleep problems, discomfort or other.

Classes are normally held at my quiet, purpose built Hypnotherapy room in Norton, Malton or in couples own home if they prefer. They are usually held on a Monday or Thursday evening or Saturday mornings or alternative by prior arrangements.

There are a few options with the Hypnobirthing I offer. There is a full Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing and antenatal course which is 12.5 hours usually delivered in 5 x 2.5 hour time slots. I also offer shorter, condensed versions to suit your requirements. I want as many parents-to-be to be able to have the benefits of Hypnobirthing if they would like to.

It is recommended to begin Hypnobirthing from 24 – 32 weeks into pregnancy.

Cost on application.
