Hypnobirthing in Nottingham and Grantham
My name is Sophie Fletcher, I’m the author of Mindful Hypnobirthing and co-founder of Mindful Mamma.
I teach mindful hypnobirthing in Nottingham, Grantham and Newark area. I’m a clinical hypnotherapist, hypnobirthing practitioner and doula based in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. I first trained as a clinical hypnotherapist in 2006 after using hypnosis for the birth for my second son when I felt completely in control of the experience, then I trained in the Mongan Method and the LeClaire Method. I founded Mindful Mamma hypnobirthing in Nottingham in 2008 with Mia Scotland. You can read more about the class here.
After my births I realised that women are rarely given access to information that inspires confidence and a belief in their body to birth. Most of what we do come across creates anxiety and the fear that we can’t do it and need help. Even some NHS antenatal classes often focus on what could go wrong rather than how empowering and how incredible birth can be. If I’d known what I know now, I would have spoken up with confidence against what instinctively I did and didn’t want at my births.
I run mindful mamma hypnobirthing antenatal classes in Grantham, within easy reach of Nottingham, Newark, Stamford every other month, Please don’t leave it too late, my classes often book up 2-3 months in advance.
I also run private classes in your own home, you can read more about that here.
“I just wanted to say thank you, for such an interesting relaxing and empowering day. Both Martin and I really enjoyed it, and he’s got just what I hoped he would out of it – some confidence in his own abilities as a husband, supporter, advocate and future Dad!”
