The birth trauma sessions I offer are not just about you telling me all about your previous birth and me listening. It is much more than that.
I use a technique called IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy), or sometimes another technique called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) which allows us to work through and release the trauma from your experience, so that you still have the memories but they don’t affect you in any way whatsoever. All the emotions are taken out of the experience so you just remember the facts.
I know, it sounds unthinkable and completely impossible, but it really does work. The clients with whom I have used this technique will be more than happy to tell you about their birthing experiences and their birth trauma session with me and how well it worked for them.
This birth trauma session can take place at any time, before your next pregnancy or during your pregnancy if you are pregnant now. For example, a past client came to see me for a birth trauma session when she was only 10 weeks pregnant with her second baby because as soon as she had learned she was pregnant again, she was filled with fear and had panic attacks when remembering her previous birth, even though prior to becoming pregnant again she had managed to push it out of her mind and she thought she was fine about the experience. She went on to have a joyous rest-of-pregnancy and a beautiful, healing, positive birth experience.
In this in-depth session, we will explore what happened last time, the whats and the whys, the pain, the trauma and the disappointment, the if-onlys and the shattered dreams, the feeling of failure and the difficulty of letting that go. We will then use IEMT to release the trauma so that you can look back on your experience and say ‘Yes, it happened’ but feel completely neutral about it.
Of course, you can then decide to do my Wise Hippo Birthing Programme if you wish 🙂
If you are not yet pregnant and feel that your previous birth experience is preventing you from conceiving, please do get in touch as I am also trained in hypnofertility.
The sessions can be done face to face or via Skype.
The fee for this 2-hour session is £92. If an extra session is required because other things have come up, then it is likely to be less long, 1 hour (£52) or 1.5 hours (£77).
Payments can be made by bank transfer, cash, debit card or credit card.
What about husbands or partners?
If your husband or partner was also affected, I can of course offer him or her a birth trauma session too, which will be separate from yours. The same technique(s) will be used and the price will be as above.
