Congratulations on your pregnancy and a very warm welcome to Southend Hypnobirthing

Hello lovely mum-to-be!  Welcome to Southend Hypnobirthing, an online home study course created by Sarah of Positively Blooming.

Now, it really doesn’t matter why you’re here but I’m guessing you’ve either birthed before and don’t want to repeat the experience.   Or you’re a first time mum and you’ve heard a few ‘stories’ about leaving your dignity at the door.  You’d prefer to avoid a situation like that if at all possible.

You’re excited about holding your baby in your arms and falling in love with them, but not knowing exactly how or when this will happen is probably likely to send you into a frenzy, especially if you dwell on it for too long.

Even if this is your second or subsequent baby, it still feels like you don’t know ‘how to do it’, because the whole birthing process was taken out of your hands the last time round.

Really, you just want to know if there’s anything you can do to help you pop this baby out in an easier, calmer way, leaving you with a positive birth experience.

And what about your birth partner?  Do they need some knowledge about this birthing malarky? Could they do with a bit of man-to-man hypnobirthing knowledge that you just can’t seem to get anywhere else?

You know in your heart there has to be a better way to birth than the horror stories that appear to be on offer from the media, well meaning friends and family but you just don’t know how yet?

So what if I told you not to give those birth stories the time of day?  That your baby’s birth story is yet to be written.  That you have the personal resources to cope with any given birthing situation. That you could influence your baby’s birth experience and make it a calmer, more positive and more relaxed experience?

You know you need to get yourself some antenatal preparation, after all, knowledge is power. Yet you’ve looked at the classes and feel confused, as there are so many to choose from. If you’re honest, you don’t have the time or inclination to attend group classes.  Lets face it this can be especially difficult if you already have a little prince or princess at home (especially when you know they won’t settle with the in-laws).

You find that classes run at set times usually weekends and evenings and they’re going to impact too much on your precious family time. And then there’s the money, bringing a new baby into the world is expensive and investing in a full in-person course just feels like one thing too much at the moment!

So what if I told you now that you don’t need to leave home to discover that you hold the power to have a positive birth experience. You have the power to birth your baby calmly, confidently and in full control, no matter what turn your baby’s birth takes (because I don’t have a crystal ball and there are so many variables in birth that no birth preparation course ever can offer you a guaranteed outcome).

That with the right information, you can gather up your personal resources, learn to listen to your body and recognize what you and your baby need. To learn how to use your mind to help yourself, to work for you, opposed to against you (you know that voice in your head that says “Oh No! You can’t possibly do that!” Well, YES actually you can!). That you can learn to to birth your baby the best way you can. And all this from the comfort of your cozy sofa and NO I don’t come round to yours either so you don’t even have to tidy up before you start your course, that ironing pile can stay (double win).

This online hypnobirthing home study course is packed full of simple, easy to get to grips with hypnobirthing tools and techniques that will help you move through your labour calmly, confidently and in full control of your thoughts and emotions.

With this course you can either work together as a dream team with your birth partner or go solo and learn those skills yourself (I have to say I went solo even though my husband was very much around I felt I needed to know I could do it by myself).

This course is for you if you want a no nonsense guide to birth, a hypnobirthing course that’s simple, easy to follow, full of useful information and proven tools and techniques to help you get the best birth experience you can possibly have.

This course will suit you if you are planning to birth in hospital, just like I did or at home like many of my previous first time mums have (take a peek at their birth stories here).

This hypnobirthing course is for you if you think your birth partner could use some man-to-man hypnobirthing information from a hypnobirthing Dad, who just so happens to be a professional hypnotherapist & psychotherapist too.

This course is packed full of activities, to do lists, audios, transcripts and the odd video to help you gain a fresh perspective on birth.  Helping you to understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of how hypnobirthing works and in easy bite sized pieces, allowing you to fit it all into your already packed out family and work life, with ease.

This course is for you if you are willing to put in 100% effort, this course will require effort on your part (all the best things in life do) and you will get out of it exactly what you put in but I know you’re wiling to do that, that’s why you’re still here.

And just for good measure (because we all have what if’s) if you wobble along the way, I will catch you, either in-person (location dependent) or over Skype.

So what should you do now?

Take a good look around my Southend Hypnobirthing website and find out more about my online home study course, read the testimonials from my Positively Blooming hypnobirthing clients, check out the online home study course details page and remember to sign up for your freebies. Then, when you are ready, I’ll see you on the other side and support you through your hypnobirthing journey, all from the comfort of your own home.

Tell me more about Positively Blooming and Southend Hypnobirthing with Sarah

Hi Sarah,  I can’t thank you enough. We had to stay in till Friday as she had an infection from cord. I was so calm I wasn’t upset at all. I just let the doctors do their thing. I’ve never felt so good, I’m Not tired, I’m not emotional, I’m just loving every minute. The pain from the episiotomy has been uncomfortable, but I just kept using the deep breathing techniques which really helped. I will be back to see you again in the future no doubt. Have a lovely Sunday
Kind regards, Rachael

My hypnobabe!!! Didn’t want to wait and arrived a month early on Saturday 9th April weighing in at a whopping 7lb1 Despite the abrupt arrival and the reduced time I had to practice my relaxation I truly believe that I wouldn’t have been as prepared as I was and I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my goal.  Natural birth, no pain relief at all! I’m not going to say I didn’t have a few wobbles or consider pain relief in the final hour but I do believe hypnobirthing is the way forwards and helps you keep your focus.

Morning! At 0820 yesterday morning we welcomed our little boy into the world! It was all very unexpected but thankfully all doing fine. The hypnobirthing was amazing and things progressed at quite a speed. Not entirely how I would have planned but apart from the initial bit where I freaked as went from closed to 6cm in under an hour I got it together and refocused. They were very complimentary about breathing and how calm I was. From 0 to pushing was in total 5 hours 5 mins. I would do it all again tmrw. Just love him xxx

Hello Sarah,  I had a little boy on 23rd November at 12.24pm weighing 7lb 8oz. We were in hospital for a week though because of feeding and weight loss. He is struggling to latch on to the breast although we keep trying, I am expressing so he is having this through a bottle.

I found the hypnobirthing session so helpful and really feel that this helped me to have an overall positive birth. I listened to the MP3s loads and made a positive affirmation poster.

We are getting used to life as a little family, A xx
