The Power of Hypnobirthing book is free to download on your Kindle for a limited time. Get your copy now!

If you’ve heard about hypnobirthing, but you’re not quite sure what it’s about and whether it is right for you, then download this newly published book by Christine Huntingford, founder of Magical Baby Moments, who has written this book to explain how every single mother (and her birth partner) can enable a better birth experience by learning hypnobirthing.

The Power of Hypnobirthing – 10 reasons why it’s for you does what it says on the tin; it outlines 10 concrete reasons how learning hypnobirthing will empower the expectant mum and her birth partner to enter labour and birth with positivity and calm confidence.

Why was this book written? 

Christine herself benefited from hypnobirthing when she was pregnant with both of her children and decided to become a teacher in 2015; to spread the word to expectant mums in her community in Romford, Essex.

Here we are in 2017 and hypnobirthing is still not mainstream – and she wants to change that.

Why? Because mothers who have used it in labour have often found their birth experiences, calm, relaxed and positive.

How? By understanding the process of labour, asserting her preferences with her caregivers, so that she had the right birth experience for her and her baby.

This is not to say that hypnobirthing only advocates natural births without pain relief, in fact hypnobirthing works for all mothers for whichever pregnancy she is on (first or fifth!) and for whatever outcome her journey plays out on the day. Mothers who are planning a Caesarean Section can also benefit from the power of hypnobirthing tools and techniques.
If you’re looking for a relaxed birth and one that you will look back on with positivity, download this book. It’s available to download for free, between 4-8 June, with Amazon.

If you prefer a paperback copy, you can pre order it via the Magical Baby Moments website.

Capture those precious moments while you can, with pregnancy and newborn photos

Whilst I took quite a few photos whilst I was pregnant with my babies – marking the monthly milestones – the one thing I wish I had done was have a professional photographer capture me. Instead, I  have the sideways bump photo in the office, which really wasn’t the best of backdrops.

Additionaly in today’s world, most, if not all, of our photos are taken on our phone. But are they really good enough when it comes to wanting to put those photos around your house? Is the quality high enough?

Often I suggest to parents to get their ‘proper’ cameras out…you know those things that have been most likely tucked away in your cupboard for a year or two (at least), so that you capture your first babies moments properly.

I was excited to meet Alina Clark a few weeks ago in Romford, Essex. She is a local photographer who specialises in taking photos during everyday activities.

Understanding the word ‘hypnobirthing’

The word ‘hypnobirthing’ can often conjure up the wrong images. But really it is one of those words that explain just what it does on the tin! The hypno, of course, comes from hypnosis – and so it’s hypnosis for birthing… So while that makes sense, why are so many people still put off by it, thinking that it is something that isn’t quite for them because they don’t fit that ‘group’? Trust me when I say that hypnobirthing is for anyone and everyone.

It really isn’t just for the yummy-mummy, lentil-lovers. It doesn’t put you in some altered state of reality, making you do things you wouldn’t normally do. It’s simply about having a deeper understanding of what your body is doing during labour. Realising that there are techniques and positions that can help optimise your labour, to make it comfortable and, in many cases, faster than those labours that don’t use these simple and effective tools.

A hypnobirthing class will also teach you all that you need to know about late pregnancy and labour and all the possible scenarios that could present themselves during your labour and birth. By having the information ahead of time to digest what this means; realising that there are benefits and risks to all procedures even the ones that are so routinely carried out, might make you think twice. A hypnobirthing course will prepare both you and your birth partner, to make the right decision for you and your baby.

So if you’ve been put off by media, friends and family that labour is a painful and horrible event, it’s not true. Most hypnobirthing mothers will tell you that their labour and birth was calm and comfortable. Those who really relax and trust in nature, usually do so without the need for medical intervention.

Let me help you to achieve this for your birth.

A hypnobirthing course is usually 10-12 hours of teaching, and this can be done either through evening or weekend classes.

If you live near Romford, Essex, I would love to help you achieve a calm and confident birth. You can find details of my classes on my website.

Email me at enquiries@magicalbabymoments.com if you would like to receive the first chapter of Katharine Graves, The Hypnobirthing Book. Simply email me your name, and estimated due date and I will get that straight over to you.
