The birthing coach - trance-forming childbirth - NLP & hypnotherapy for a comfortable childbirth
"When I found out I was pregnant, I decided to try and prepare for the birth of my baby by doing a hypnotherapy for birthing course. I had heard some really positive stories and was open minded to find out more. Tanya was my birthing coach and she coached me how to enter a trance-like relaxed state, believe and trust in my body’s ability to grow my baby and give birth and to view birth as a positive rather than painful experience. Throughout my pregnancy, my friends and family were amazed how calm and relaxed I was and I believe this was due to all the hypno-relaxation techniques I did daily. I found not only did the relaxation techniques help me have a peaceful sleep every night but also gave me skills that helped manage stress with my work too. When my waters broke at home I was able to remain extremely calm and relaxed and breathe through my surges. I got to 7cm at home on my own before I called the midwife to see if I was ready to go into hospital. I was so relaxed on the phone that the midwife did not think I was anywhere near ready until she examined me! When I got to the birthing suite at the hospital I went in the water and listened to my hypnomusic. My mum and husband both said I immediately seemed to go into a trance-like state and was actually falling asleep between contractions! My birthing partners who both attended the course with me were able to help me focus on my breathing and support me all the way through using lots of strategies we learnt such as positive birth affirmations and touch. I was able to give birth to my baby girl without any drugs and she came into the world extremely calm without crying and has been a chilled, happy baby since. I view my birth as a positive experience where I had ‘surges’ not contractions, ‘pressure’ not pain and I felt confident. I completely trusted my body and baby to know what to do and relaxed and let my body take over whilst taking my mind somewhere else. I would recommend trance-forming childbirth and Tanya as a birthing coach to any expectant mother. I am so happy that Tanya was a part of my daughter’s journey and will be forever grateful for the skills she has taught me." Sam Smith, Teacher, Bournemouth

I hold a post graduate diploma in clinical hypnosis and am a licensed NLP trainer and master practitioner, having studied with Dr. Richard Bandler, a co-creator of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
I learnt painless childbirth with Tina Taylor via the International College of Clinical Hypnotherapy (ICCH). Tina’s childbirth classes were first created in 2001 when she helped a friend achieve a painless childbirth. Since then these classes have been developed and refined. Tina now teaches her strategy to couples and midwives internationally, as well as to ICCH students who are inspired to teach her technology.
All courses are limited to a maximum of four couples. The next course will be run over two sessions as follows:
2018 courses: Saturday 13th & 20th October, 3rd & 10th November (two x three hour sessions).
Time: 09:30 – 12:30.
Location: Bournemouth (venue TBC).
My lesson plans are supported by Tina’s published materials that are currently included in your course fee. Course participants will learn:
- About the history of hypnosis in childbirth, why and how it works.
- The impact of stress and how to release it.
- NLP strategies to support your emotional state.
- Trance skills and hypnotic phenomena to support the birthing process.
