Having grown up with a mother who taught childbirth to thousands of women, I have always believed that birth is a natural, normal and very precious thing.
I trained in Hypnobirthing the Mongan Method in 2008.I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner.I have also trained and qualified to teach the Katherine Graves Method of Hypnobirthing and The Wise Hippo Birth Programme.
I love the work that I do, I’m passionate about helping women to have the best possible birth for them and their baby.I have found that bonding between parents, baby and siblings is easier and helps to empower the new parents to trust their judgement as they begin to find their way on the journey of parenthood.Babies tend to be calmer and trust more easily.
I am a member of the Warwickshire Pregnancy and Birth Network and have many contacts in the field of Birth and therefore have access to a real wealth of knowledge about birth and the way it plays out in Warwickshire.
Hypnobirthing is amazing!
Finally we have a real toolbox to give women to enable them, with the help of their birth partner, to have the best birth they can possibly have.
A birth without fear
A birth to look back on with joy and pride.
Hypnobirthing teaches women to self hypnotise/get easily into a deep relaxation by learning breathing and visualisation techniques to allow the body to work easily without being impeded by tension.
During the weeks before the baby’s birth the woman listens daily to positive affirmations which assure her that her body knows what to do.She listens to a relaxation CD which helps her to relax quickly and completely.During classes she and her partner learn techniques to help her to produce huge amounts of endorphin, to help her believe absolutely that her birth will be the way she wants it to be.Women learn how to release fear and replace it with calm, positive belief.
Hypnobirths are often shorter than regular births because women don’t fight the contractions.The contractions/surges are experienced as shorter and more comfortable.
The labouring woman enters a wonderful primal state where time is distorted and she is in harmony with her baby and her body.
It seems a simple concept….because it is.
"The knowledge that Robert and I gained from your hypnobirthing course gave us the tools and empowered us to have the birthing experience that we wanted and the birth that our beautiful Matilda deserved.
I will always remember Matilda's birth as a happy, relaxed and beautiful introduction to our contented and calm little girl. You gave us the greatest gift, I cannot thank you enough." (Louise, spring 2013)
"Hypnobirth is such a brilliant preparation for birth and Victoria is such a great teacher. She has such great experience that she shares with you and a wonderfully calming way of communicating things. (Plus she provides great biscuits and fantastic cakes!!) I also used the techniques I learnt to help with breastfeeding too. Highly recommended :))" (Liz, summer 2013)
"If you are considering Hypnobirthing then Victoria is a great teacher and will help you remain calm during birth. She also runs monthly coffee mornings to meet other mums and makes the best brownies." (Minnie, June 2013)
