This is the ultimate gift to yourself as you prepare your body and mind to give birth to your baby.
I have teamed up with the wonderful Emma from Lunar Balance in Hove, who provides the best pregnancy massage this side of the planet! Emma is an intuitive, healing massage therapist who specialises in women's health; with a strong focus on pre and post natal massage. Together we have created you a VIP Birth Prep Package so that your mind feels calm and prepared to focus on the labour and birth you want and your body is relaxed and supported to heal before and after you give birth.
Your investment of £465 includes:
A full private Hypnobirthing course with Sofie, tailored to meet your specific needs, over 4 sessions in your own home* (10 hours total)
A folder containing all the techniques and scripts you need to practice relaxation and positive mindfulness around birth
A welcome pack - including the Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing book, a 'Colour and Calmness' relaxation MP3 & CD
A full antenatal education about what to expect during labour, giving birth and the 'golden hour' after birth using Doula birth beads and birth videos as aids to learning
Support to release any fears or negative emotions you have around birth or a previous birth; so that you feel positive and empowered to make the right choices for you and your family
Breathing techniques throughout labour and birth, so that you can stay focused and in control of your birthing experience
You will be guided through deeply relaxing self-hypnosis exercises and visualisations that you will practice during class and between sessions
Relaxation and massage techniques you can practice with your birth partner plus active birth positions to use for an easier and more comfortable labour and birth
Support with your birth plan and managing expectations/scenarios directed from the medical profession
A 90 minute pre-natal massage with Emma to gently but deeply work on tired or achey muscles as your body changes and grows during your pregnancy
A 90 minute post-natal, rejuvenating massage with Emma to help restore balance and suppleness to your body after your experience of giving birth
A bespoke aromatherapy blend of safe essential oils to use for massage during your labour
Follow up session emails and on-going support via phone, text, email or Skype to answer any questions or concerns you have leading up to your baby's birth
Further supportive Hypnosis MP3s for breastfeeding and new motherhood will be emailed to you once your course is complete.
When the time comes for you to give birth, your mind and body should be prepared and ready to give birth and whichever direction your birthing journey takes you should feel informed, confident, calm, relaxed and most importantly empowered!
You are welcome to do the classes alone, however I do encourage you to bring a birth partner so you can practice the techniques together and feel full supported. The best time to start a course is in your second trimester (from 16 to 30 weeks). To get the most out of your course it is advised that you practice the skills every day until you go into labour.
*I will come to you in the Brighton, Hove and Portslade area, however if it is resident parking only I will require a parking permit please. If you live further afield you are welcome to come to me on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday morning.
