Geraldine after undergoing Childbirth Hypnosis
“I visited Stephen a couple of weeks after I found out I was expecting my first child. I had a phobia of doctors all my life and I knew that in order to enjoy my pregnancy I had to overcome the fear of ‘white coats’.
After one session I had overcome my phobia. During this session Stephen advised me of hypnosis he did around the pain of child birth and how hypnosis could make the experience more enjoyable and less painful. I have got to say I did not think this was possible but as with any first time mum I would have taken or done anything to alleviate my worries about childbirth.
So eight weeks before my due date I had three sessions with Stephen and was given cd’s to listen to during labour, I was still sceptical up until I went into hospital but I can say now my daughter was born in April and I had only four hours of labour and my only form of pain relief was gas and air. I had a wonderful stress free labour and my daughter was and continues to be a very relaxed and happy baby. If I am lucky enough to have a second child I will use hypnosis again.
