Hi, I’m Nichola and I teach Mindful Mamma hypnobirthing in Derby.
I first used mindful hypnobirthing myself in July 2016 when preparing for the birth of my daughter. Having previously suffered a miscarriage I found that mindful hypnobirthing helped me to remain calm and relaxed during this pregnancy despite anxieties linked to my previous experience. I was able to make informed choices that were right for me and my baby.
Although I had to be induced mindful hypnobirthing enabled me to remain calm and confident. The breathing techniques, mp3 tracks, visual anchors and affirmations still enabled me to stay focused and in control leading to a positive birth. When my daughter was born the midwife commented on how calm and content she was. It was an amazing and empowering experience which enabled me to connect with my body and baby in ways that I did not know was possible.
My experiences inspired me to train as a Mindful Mamma practitioner so that I can support other woman in making informed choices that are right for them and their baby with the aim of leading to a positive birth where they feel focused and in control.
I offer group workshops and one to one courses in the comfort of your own home. Please get in touch to find out more and follow me @mindful_mamma_derby on Facebook and Instagram.
