Welcome to Nesting Mums!
You don’t feel quite ready for this pregnancy, labour, birth and motherhood malarkey.
It is so daunting, isn’t it?
Further, you’re worried that your stress, anxiety and wounds from the past will affect your pregnancy, birth and how you look after your baby and raise your child. You certainly don’t want to pass your issues onto your offspring. The buck stops with you.
Indeed, for you, this pregnancy (or the idea of being pregnant, if you’re not quite there yet) and the fears surrounding it aren’t just about giving birth. They’re about something that is much bigger and much more long term. It’s about the mental well-being of your family, now and in the future. It’s about the mental well-being of your children’s children even. You don’t want anyone from the next generations to suffer the way you did.
But of course, there is also the small matter of getting a whole new human being out of your uterus, in some way, somewhere, some time soon-ish. And you can’t honestly say that this hasn’t bothered you at all. In fact, your worries and concerns (or even downright fears) have been preventing you from enjoying your pregnancy (or even ‘trying for a baby’) and looking forward to your birth.
You can’t even fathom the idea that some women ‘look forward’ to their births. ‘They must be lying,’ says a little voice deep within you. ‘What about the pain? Are they not worried about the pain? And the unknown?’
Let me reassure you: by the end of our last class or session together (or even before that), all my clients are excited and do look forward to their births, so I am certain that you will too.
‘But,’ I hear you say, ‘I am a control freak and want to plan everything, so I really can’t see how I’ll get to a place where I can relax and enjoy the journey.’
I have some bad news. Pregnancy, labour, birth and motherhood are anything but predictable.
But I have some good news. There is help out there, and in particular here at Nesting Mums. A wealth of knowledge, experience, tips, tricks, techniques and tools, along with humour, smiles, warmth and reassurance.
It all starts with unlearning what you think you know about birth and motherhood, and then carries on with learning all the great things that my sessions and classes have to offer.
My sessions and classes combine all the best traits of hypnobirthing (including hypnosis for birth of course, but also the breathing techniques, affirmations and visualisation tools) with EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as ‘tapping’. It looks a bit weird and funky, however it’s anything but. There is a wealth of EFT videos on YouTube so if you are curious, go and have a look. However, you may be put off, so perhaps don’t have a look
If you are looking for a traditional type of hypnobirthing programme, though (the ones that tell you you will definitely get a pain-free and natural birth), I’m afraid this is not the right place for you. Sorry.
But if you want help with resolving your past issues, becoming calm and relaxed about your past, your present and your future, and if you want some serious preparation for the rest of your pregnancy, your labour, your birth and motherhood so that you can make all the decisions yourself, have a positive birth experience no matter how it unfolds, ride the waves of early motherhood with ease and confidence, and if you want committed, long-term, unwavering support from a woman who has had two babies and is a birth and postnatal doula, a hypnobirthing teacher, a Clinical Hypnotherapist and an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, aka ‘tapping’) and Reiki Practitioner…
then you are in the right place 🙂
Hypnobirthing is not about using a pendulum and magicking the perfect birth for you. No. It’s about you and your birth partner learning a variety of tools, along with hypnosis and self-hypnosis, so that you can change your outlook on things for the rest of your pregnancy and for birth. These include visualisation (many sportsmen use this technique to achieve what they want in their discipline), breathing techniques, affirmations and other practical things that your birth partner can do during labour and birth. It is also very much science-based and logical, and I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to biology and hormones, so you will get the lowdown on how your labouring and birthing body works and what makes things better and easier (and what makes things longer and more difficult, if you want to know!).
Don’t just wait for birth to happen, don’t just keep your fingers crossed that it will go well – prepare for it.
Why do classes and sessions with me?
My name is Saveria and as a mother of two girls born in 2008 and 2012, a birth and postnatal doula since 2011, a hypnobirthing teacher since 2012 and a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Energy Therapist since 2014, I can help you to heal from past hurts and deep traumas, manage your stress and anxiety, prepare for a calm, empowered and positive birth experience no matter what path your pregnancy and birthing take, prepare for motherhood and lead a light and happy life.
I care about you, your birth and your early postnatal period so much that I want to be there, on hand, to support you and give you extra information and answer your questions. I estimate that you get, over the weeks of my Serene Birth and Motherhood course and way beyond (up to your birth but sometimes clients stay in touch after that too) the equivalent of 4 hours of my 1:1 time, worth in excess of £220.
So many of my clients are so grateful for this extra time, support and attention I offer, and say this is what makes my classes so special.
I love building relationships with my clients. You will remember my name and my classes when you have finished our sessions and classes together because I will have been a big part of your pregnancy, birth and early postnatal period.
I specialise in the following:
- Releasing your past wounds and your current fears and blocks, using EFT.
- Antenatal preparation using both hypnobirthing techniques and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), aka ‘tapping’.
- Preparation for motherhood (and fatherhood if your partner/husband is interested).
- Birth preparation after a difficult or traumatic birth, using birth trauma therapy and my Serene Birth and Motherhood course.
- Anxiety and stress.
- Trauma, from childhood to adulthood, including birth trauma and PTSD.
- Healing through relaxation, the abdominal massage Closing the Bones, Reiki and crystals.
- The use of essential oils (not as an aromatherapist, but as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, spreading my love of these oils as far as I can).
I only offer private classes and sessions (not groups), face to face and by Skype.
‘Saveria helped us a lot in so many ways. I must say that I already knew approximately what I was looking for and how I wanted my birth to be like. But I didn’t know how to proceed with my ‘vision’. Saveria taught me all the necessary tools in order to achieve this. Breathing techniques, relaxation methods, visualisations, labour positions and many more.’
‘I feel at peace. I have recently recommended you to two of my friends 🙂 You really turned my life around, I never expected so many changes when I went to see you. I now realise it’s often not the thing we think we have to fix that is the problem. Thank you thank you :-)’
Are you ready to take your life, pregnancy, birth and early motherhood into your own hands?
