Hypnobirthing v hypnosis for birth

Hypnobirthing originates from a very particular philosophy. The female body is designed to give birth and the vast majority of women can give birth naturally, smoothly and easily. Only a small minority of women would fall under the category of a ‘special circumstance’ where more medical support or intervention would be required.

5 Reasons why Pregnancy is a time of great opportunity!

1) You get to wear a much bigger bra than you ever thought it would be possible to wear pre pregnancy! Even if your maternity bra isn't the most glamorous, it's probably a good two sizes bigger than what you would usually wear. Embrace the boulder holders!

2) It is socially acceptable to nap in the day! Enjoy those beautiful guilt free mid afternoon weekend naps or maternity leave siestas. Savour every moment and indulge.

The very REAL benefits of Relaxation during Pregnancy!

Everyone knows it is beneficial to relax during pregnancy but do you really realise just how crucial it is?

For a few years now Babies in Waiting have been delivering Pregnancy Relaxation Sessions. We have found that it’s a great opportunity for a pregnant lady to tune out of the distractions of every day life and to spend an hour focussing on the experience of being pregnant and bonding with their baby.

But other than being an enjoyable way to spend an hour, what are the benefits of this form of Pregnancy Relaxation?

Suffering with Hayfever whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

Pregnant or breastfeeding? Don’t suffer in silence this summer with your Hayfever!

Does sneezing, a runny nose and itchy eyes sound familiar? Does the thought of lighter evenings and sunnier days fill you with dread?

The onset of spring can bring such positivity but also the dreaded Hayfever season!
Pregnancy and Hayfever can be daunting. Your normal over the counter drugs, nasal spray, antihistamines are no longer your friend as you are advised not to take them during Pregnancy.

Beautiful birth report of baby Dominic

It's so exciting to hear news of a birth & this week we received an amazing email from one of our lovely Hypno Dads.

"Dominic arrived at 10.14 last night. He wasn't just born beautifully. It was amazing.

If his birth was filmed it would be shown forever in Hypnobirthing classes. It was perfect. We cannot thank you enough for turning around the way we thought about birthing."

Learning HypnoBirthing in a Home from Home environment

A core premise of HypnoBirthing is for the mind to be relaxed so that the body can relaxed and do what it is designed to do, birth smoothly and naturally.

Babies in Waiting begin conditioning the subconscious towards relaxation from the moment that you enter the front door for our courses. We want couples to associate Willow Cottage with relaxation. We want them to feel comfortable and at ease. Not only will this aid the learning process but it means that couples can feel comfortable to ask questions freely and interact. We want them to feel truly at home.
