Mums do know best!

We are at our most instinctual as mothers, and babies are creatures of instinct too. So why is having a baby so often dominated by that nagging feeling of never being good enough?

Unfortunately, modern life encourages the  over-analytical measuring and comparing which lets self doubt creep in and distances us from our natural instincts - a particular drawback in motherhood.

Worry make us forget simple facts. Babies are not born knowing clock time, or what the latest 'baby book' dictates, but they sure know what they need to be happy. If we relax and accept the truth - we will never be someone else's idea of a mum, and our baby will never be other than unique, we can love every minute of motherhood.

Hypnotherapy is a valuable tool for new mums. It helps mothers to enjoy  the miracle of pregnancy, the triumph and glory of giving birth and the incomparable thrill and delight of responding to the baby as they grow and thrive. Hypnosis does this by taking us a step back down the evolutionary ladder so we  follow our instincts and intuition. We can utilize ancient female power to enjoy  the experience, without fuss or bother.

As a nervous new mum, I used to hang over the cot, wondering how something so beautiful could ever be mine - how I wish I had had the benefit of hypnotherapy in those days!
