How do you prepare for birth with hypnosis?

One of the main benefits of using hypnosis tools during labour is to remove the fear/anxiety barrier which is known to have a negative physiological impact on the experience by creating unwanted physical and mental tensions.

The hypnobirthing programme Sophie offers is a wonderful combination of techniques which create a comprehensive birth preparation to make you feel calm, relaxed, confident, empowered and positive about labour and birth. Partners (if they wish to get involved in the sessions), become an strong source of support.

You will gain a lot of knowlege about birth as well as very practical tools to better relax and breathe, topped-up with hypnosis techniques, and totally change your mind-set.

The hypnobirthing preparation Sophie offers is evidence-based. The techniques you’ll be learning are widely used and validated by research as effective to address a wide range of issues which you’ll be applying to the specific context of birth preparation.

The one-on-one approach makes this birth preparation totally personalised to YOU and your needs. The exercises and self-hypnosis scripts are adapted to YOUR own personal journey.


And in practice?

Session 1

(ideally mother + partner) (usually 1h30). During this first session, we review the principles of hypnobirthing and how your partner can take and active part in supporting you during the birth with some simple breathing and massage techniques. At the end of this session, you’ll have a clear understanding of the various elements which can make your pregnancy and birth a positive experience, and how to implement them through the daily exercises you’ll have to integrate into your every day life. Book session 1 to attend between week 25 and 32 of your pregnancy.

Session 2

(usually just for the mother) (around 1h15). Sophie will guide you through a script (think long/deep relaxation) which is written just for you to address any particular worries about the birth or to simply teach yourself how to quickly relax and focus. Then you receive your audio script for you to regularly practice at home, with all instructions for practice. Book session 2 to attend between week 30 and 33 of your pregnancy.

Session 3

(around 1h15). This session will give you extra relaxation tools to help you engage positively with the very start of labour. Sophie will guide you through a relaxation script which will deepen the relaxation response in those very last days of your pregnancy, which you can use at the very start of labour. You receive an audio of the script with instructions on when and how to use it for the start of labour. Book session 3 to attend at week 37 or 38 of you pregnancy.

” Thank you for the hypnobirthing sessions. My mindset was completely different in just a couple of months. I really surprised myself with the strength and calm I pulled out during labour “
