Feel Calm Confident Capable & Courageous in Labour with The Positive Birth Formula
Congratulations on your pregnancy. How are you feeling?
Overjoyed. Excited. Scared. Overwhelmed.
All of the above!
Pregnancy can bring up a rollercoaster of emotions and for the most part that’s fine, normal in-fact.
But sometimes those anxious thoughts can easily take over and put a dampener on the whole nine months. Making your upcoming birth and transition into motherhood a daunting experience.
Maybe you're worried about the significant changes having a baby will have on your life? Or you are worried how you will cope emotionally?
Are you feeling concerned, not sure if you are ready for the impact a baby will have on your life? You see and hear all the time, the demands a young family can have on you.
You’re pregnant. You’re pleased of course you are but how you think and feel about yourself, and your life is changing.
And you’re questioning your readiness.
If you're anything like my previous clients you have one hundred and one questions filing your mind. Questions such as...
What can I expect in labour ?
When will I know it's right time to go to the hospital?
Will I bond with my baby once it is here?
How will I cope with being tired and sleepless nights?
What will parenting be like?
And will I be good enough?
Will I experience complications that affect me and my unborn baby?
Is labour going to be painful and how long will the whole birthing process be?
Will my partner be ok during the labour process?
Will having a baby change things with my partner?
You could be concerned as...
Deep down you know that childbirth is safe and having a baby is a positive thing but you can’t help but think about the possibility of negative or harmful outcomes.
There is an underlying fear surrounding you that something is bound to go wrong. So strong is this feeling you're carrying that maybe you’ve put off telling some people that you are pregnant.
Everyone expects you to be happy and glowing now you are pregnant. Dutifully you put on a show for them. No one understands why you’re not permanently brimming over with happiness and you don’t feel you can share these worries with your friends and family for fear of looking daft.
You’re scared of losing control and equally as scared of the responsibility a baby brings.
You are not alone.
The majority of expectant Mums worry about the impact having a baby will have on their life.
Some of those of women suffer so badly with this fear that it can overshadow the whole pregnancy, complicate childbirth and even lead to difficulties bonding in motherhood.
However, research shows that regardless of how deep rooted your fear is, by preparing for childbirth not only will it enhance your birth experience, but it can also promote bonding with your partner and baby leaving you to experience positive parenting once baby has arrived.
Preparing for childbirth is as important as preparing for any other of life’s events.
The Positive Birth formula will help you to:
When you perceive a sense of personal control over your baby’s birth you will feel more capable, confident, calm, courageous and comfortable putting your coping skills into action on the day.
The Positive Birth Formula provides you with an environment where you can learn and share from other expectant Mums who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings to you. This will help you to move forward with a positive mindset and feel prepared for birth.
Feeling prepared for childbirth and having an awareness of your own amazing abilities makes labour easier, shorter and more comfortable for both you and your baby.
Having an awareness of your birth choices and making those decisions during labour from a place of calmness and confidence will provide you with a positive start to motherhood.
It's amazing how easy it is to nip in the bud any unhelpful thoughts and feelings around pregnancy, birth and motherhood easily allowing you to move forward as the capable women you are.
Understanding you unwittingly create and maintain those fears and anxieties around birth is the key to be becoming free of them.
And if you're worried about asking silly questions along the way, you needn't be as we answer all your questions even the ones that you don’t want to ask. There really is no such thing as a silly question in our community, we give honest, researched based answers where we can or signpost you if necessary.
You and your baby are in safe hands.
The Positive Birth Formula will increase your preparedness for childbirth leaving you with a positive birth memory that'll last you a lifetime.
The Positive Birth Formula is an Easy Effective & Enjoyable Course
I'm don't normally care for statistics. Spreadsheets are not my thing!
But as part of my business it has been suggested to me that I should gather data on my clients experiences.
All I really care about is you and your perception of birth. Because I know from both years of working with Mums and becoming one myself that when you feel good about your baby's birth it sets you up for motherhood in a positive way.
And that is so important.
The knock on effect of a negative experience can be enormous. I have first hand experience of this from my first birth. As do many of the second or more time Mums that I work with.
And if I can show you how to avoid this as much as you possible, my work is done.
Having gone through the figures it looks like I achieve exactly this.
I'm blown away that 85.71% of my clients take the time to share their positive birth stories with me.
Out of those, 84.85% of them have had positive experiences of birthing in hospitals and 61.67% of my clients achieving this are first time mums (as of March 2018).
But like I said, I don't do this for the numbers I do this so that you and other women like you can birth their baby's feeling calm, confident, capable and courageous.
I look forward to sharing your birth preparation journey with you.
See you in the course!
I hope all is well with you.
Apologies for the lateness in getting in touch with you after our refresher
Baby Laurie arrived a little early the week after we met! It was a very
different experience to George's birth as I had to be at hospital from the
beginning following my strep b diagnosis. Nottm City were great and got me
set up in the sanctuary birthing unit on arrival. Despite my waters
breaking, I wasn't in active labour but they gave me chance to get my
hypnobirthing mp3 going to get into the zone and try to get things
moving. Thanks to your refresher session I felt confident to make my own
choices and positively challenge any points regarding intervention. I found
the techniques even more profound this time, and even though
my labour ended up being induced (due to Strep B risk with waters having
broken), i felt completely empowered by the whole experience and totally at
ease. Dare I say it, I don't even think I felt in pain as such - just had
gas and air to see me through the last 30 mins.
I wanted to get in touch to say a big, big thank you. I truly believe your
support through both my births has led to me having such positive
experiences. Laurie was super chilled on arrival and remains the placid boy
we met that day - all thanks to a comfortable and natural delivery.
Keep up the fab work! I recommend your programmes without a doubt.
All the best
Katie and Beatrix! This picture is as she was handed to me, after delivery she's still attached . Xxxxxx
