Breastfeeding Companion Hypnosis for More Relaxed, Confident Breastfeeding


Breastfeeding Companion Hypnosis for More Relaxed, Confident Breastfeeding by Maggie Howell

This effective self-hypnosis album combines deep relaxation with guided visualisation and support to help you breastfeed successfully.Hypnobirthing - Your Breastfeeding Companion is specially designed to guide and support you through the process of breastfeeding. Through deep relaxation, breathing exercises, practical advice and guided visualisation of comfortable and successful breastfeeding, this effective self-hypnosis audio trakincreases your confidence and ability to breastfeed. It helps you to trust in your ability to produce the right amount of milk, let go of any concerns you may have surrounding breastfeeding, and maximise your bonding with your baby. Breastfeeding difficulties are often due to the mother feeling tense and worried about doing it right or not producing enough milk, not following the natural cues and rhythms of her baby's need to feed and not eating and drinking enough. All of these factors actually compound the problem, as stress and anxiety are directly linked to a reduction in the production of milk. However, once a mother relaxes and begins to trust her body and her baby's cues to feed, breastfeeding becomes a much easier and more enjoyable experience.In addition by feeding her baby as often as her baby needs, the production and supply of milk will increase and become in unison with her baby's needs so she will produce exactly the right amount of milk for her baby. Benefits of listening to Hypnobirthing - Your Breastfeeding Companion:* Feel relaxed and confident about breastfeeding. * Develop a deep trust of your body's ability to breastfeed successfully. * Enjoy and feel comfortable about breastfeeding. * Maintain a healthy lifestyle while breastfeeding your baby. * Bond with your baby

About the Author

Maggie didn't set out to become a birth expert - in fact, she's an unlikely convert. She was a busy international sales executive who only reluctantly attended a self hypnosis course to help her with her first birth. But she was blown away by the mind's ability to control the body's response to pain and 3 months later, she had a peaceful, manageable birth at home without so much as a paracetamol - to the surprise of her and her NHS midwife who said: Maggie appeared to be 'sleeping' during most of her contractions, breathing slightly more deeply as they peaked. She used no pharmacological methods of pain relief and conducted her labour and delivery entirely under self-hypnosis. She appeared to experience no pain and very little discomfort. It was the turning point in her life. Inspired by her experiences, she trained to become a clinical hypnotherapist and left her job to pursue her new life goal: to teach other women the techniques which help them have a positive birth. The result was Natal Hypnotherapy(t), the UK's leading provider of hypnosis for childbirth. The philosophy is simple: to help women have a better birth. Maggie's work is revolutionising women's birth experiences by teaching them to overcome fear and work with their bodies during birth. Maggie says: In our society, fear has become the overriding emotion pregnant women feel about childbirth - something fuelled by TV depictions and horror stories other mums love to tell. We have not been brought up to see birth as a positive thing, so we've lost confidence in our own ability to give birth naturally and so go into it fearful and anxious - feelings which cause much of the pain and complications in birth. The facts speak for themselves: Natal Hypnotherapy(t) users have an average caesarean rate up to half the national average and are recommended by 97% of users. Medical research has repeatedly found that hypnosis reduces surgical intervention, use of pain medication, mum's pain perception, and labour times. Maggie says: This could revolutionise the way women give birth. If we could give every pregnant woman in the UK a Natal Hypnotherapy(t) CD to listen to we could save the NHS a fortune and change birthing culture! It may not be on prescription yet, but Maggie's work is already changing the birthing world. Thanks to Maggie, effective birth preparation is no longer only available for those with the luxury of money and time. Her range of self-hypnosis CDs for pregnancy and birth, and new book effective birth preparation - your practical guide to a better birth are accessible for everyone, and designed to fit into a hectic life. From terrified teenage mums to women planning their sixth home birth, the techniques have helped women from all walks of life have a more positive birth. Today, Maggie has personally trained over 500 midwives, has a network of practitioners who teach the techniques in comprehensive workshops all over the country, regularly appears as a birth expert across the media, and has used the techniques for the births of each of her five sons plus helping in excess of 100,000 women have a better pregnancy and birth experience!
