!Would you like a more relaxed, more pain
free and stress free birth?
Hypnotherapy and hypnosis can be a tremendous assistance before,
after and during giving birth. Using the Relaxed Childbirth programme
run by ELK Hypnotherapy in Dartford and Stratford, Mum’s,
Dad’s and Babies can all experience less stress, less discomfort,
and an altogether positive experience during the birthing period.
Our approach at ELK Hypnotherapy is unique in that it is complementary
to modern medicine, putting mum in charge of the birth, allowing
her to make the right decisions for her and baby, by reducing pain,
anxiety and stress during childbirth.
!How does the Relaxed Childbirth programme work?
Childbirth should and can be one of life's most momentous and fulfilling
occasions. However, it often dreaded rather than anticipated as
anxiety builds up as a result of the perfectly natural fear of the
unknown and also, after listening to horror stories from well meaning
friends and relatives about their own unpleasant experiences.
Using Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy at our clinic in Dartford and Stratford,
mothers to be are taught how to relax deeply, before, during and
