Hypnobirthing Classes with Lydia

HypnoBirthing is an antenatal course taught in North West London. It prepares women for an easier, more comfortable, calmer birth.

My name is Lydia and I’m a certified HypnoBirthing® practitioner and mum of 3. I gave birth to all of my children using HypnoBirthing® and feel incredibly positively and excited about birth. I experienced that birth can be elating and wonderful. I live with my husband and children in North West London.

I am really looking forward to working with you and your birthing companion. I can help you understand how birth works, from the physiology of pregnancy and birth to the intricate workings of the mind-body connection.I want to educate and help women think about birth in all of its’ natural wonder as something unique, perfectly designed and empowering. Birth is something which is to be experienced and embraced. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any further questions.- LydiaWhat is HypnoBirthing®?HypnoBirthing® is a well-thought out, tried, tested and proven philosophy and educational program. Through the teachings and practice of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualizations and affirmations, it prepares a woman and her birthing companion for an easier, more comfortable birth as intended by nature.Women’s bodies and babies know how to birth, as they always instinctively have, and HypnoBirthing® helps return to each woman her birth right, which is her ability to call upon these natural instincts and, with the confidence, empowerment, knowledge and peace that HypnoBirthing instils, give birth in a stress-free and fearless way, regardless of whatever turn her birthing may take.

The cornerstone of the program is understanding how fear physiologically affects labor. In the course you will learn what physiologically happens within a mother’s body and the effect upon her birthing experience and baby when fear is present. HypnoBirthing® teaches you how to let go and release your birthing fears and apprehensions.

Through the HypnoBirthing® program, you should be able to let go of any negative birth narrative you are holding onto and refill your mind with positive, loving, happy thoughts and stories about birth. The program gives you the tools you need to be able to do this, including; an in-depth understanding of how your body operates during birth, elimination of counter-productive negative birthing language replacing it with birth-positive language and specially designed birthing affirmations and visualisations to listen to regularly and practice.

Above all, you and your birthing companion will walk away from the course with confidence, feeling that you are in control of your own thoughts and birthing experience.
