Hypnobirthing Aberdeen - Teachers' Directory
I've had three hypnobirthing babies, and because of hypnobirthing, I never needed intervention or pain relief. It was wonderful to know that I, as a woman, was naturally made to birth babies. Everything I learned made so much sense to me, and I am so thrilled to share the same knowledge and preparedness with other parents-to-be.
I know the feeling of the empowerment a woman has when her body creates a fabulous miracle that is her baby. I am a hypnotherapist and am familiar with the incredible power the mind has over the body, and that it is so true that where the mind goes, the body follows. I am also a trained educator and teacher with a background in Family Science, and have been teaching in various settings for many years. I have a talent, love, and passion for children and babies, and am thrilled to share it with any and all mums and dads who want to hear.
When I moved to Scotland and became pregnant with our first born I stumbled across hypnoses and relaxation as a type of pain relief during labour and birth. The folder I was reading was very detailed; however on this bit there was only one line of information. I decided to look into it and discovered something called ‘hypnobirthing’. It was like a whole new world that suddenly opened its doors for me. It was amazing! Suddenly women could give birth! I could give birth! I wasn’t just an illness that had to be subjected to protocols and checklists. No, I was a woman and this is what women do; give birth to our next generation. Pieces were falling together and I was starting to understand there is a different way to give birth. Having a degree in Earth Science and being specialised in human behaviour in extreme circumstances, I am fully aware of the cultural believes we all have and ‘suffer’ from. But, I wasn’t aware that I was part of such a big one myself: birth is painful and dangerous. The more I read, the more I understood. Yes, there are risk of being pregnant and giving birth, but being alive and doing things in the mean time always caries a risk, of course. However, that birth is meant to be painful wasn’t always one of them. I kept reading more and more reports of women that experienced an amazing, powerful, and in some of those cases pain free birth. I know, right?! I gave birth in May 2014 to a lovely little girl Hannah using the hypnobirthing techniques. It was a wonderful and powerful experience. It was so amazing I decided to become a teacher so I could share this knowledge with women around me who deserve, just like me, this option for her birth experience. I have been teaching in many fields over the past decade, therefore I can easily switch between different teaching methods to fit different needs. Being Dutch born I can also teach classes in Dutch if that is preferred. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am here to help. Susanne Grant BSc MA DipHB(KG)
My name is Helen and I am the mother to two amazing children; Jacob aged 2 and a half and Eve aged 1. I discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with Eve and the experience changed my life! All of the anxiety, fear and pain I had experienced whilst in labour with Jacob was completely reversed during my labour with Eve; which was calm, controlled with no need for pain-relief, thanks to hypnobirthing. As a result she was born a calm, alert baby who slept and fed brilliantly.
I also have a first class honours degree in pharmacy and a postgraduate certificate in clinical education, and have been practising as a qualified pharmacist since 2003. Being a mum, with firsthand experience of hypnobirhting, as well as working in the medical profession gives me a unique perspective which mothers find very reassuring.
Having realised it is possible to achieve the birth of your dreams I am committed to helping other women have the wonderful experience they deserve too! Each baby is special so whether it’s your first, second or fifth baby it’s a magical moment when your little one arrives.
