Which download should I choose?
For most women, especially those who are new to Natal Hypnotherapy, I recommend you start with Pregnancy Relaxation up to 32 weeks. You should then switch to one of the Effective Birth Preparation programmes and listen to it as often as possible in the lead up to the birth. The Labour Companion is invaluable to keep you calm and relaxed throughout your labour, and this is often bought along with Relaxing Birth Music.

Other tracks in the Natal Hypnotherapy range include:
Prepare to conceive
IVF companion
Overcoming Morning Sickness
Prepare for a Caesarean
Turning Baby
Breastfeeding Companion
Relaxation and Stress Management (perfect for your birth partner and anyone who is not pregnant)
Letting Go of Fears
Overcoming Birth Trauma
Weight Loss through Healthy Choices

You can also download PDFs of pregnancy and birth affirmations

Don't forget, when you complete Workshop 1 (Natural Pain Relief) you will be given a free CD or gift card, and when you complete both Workshops you will receive a copy of the 'Effective Birth Preparation' Book

Please note you are unable to use a Natal Hypnotherapy gift card to purchase downloads on my site, you will need to use it at www.natalhypnotherapy.co.uk.

Prepare to Conceive
The mind and the body can not be separated - in fact they are not 2 entities, they are simply one. The body acts out and stores all the emotions and thoughts of the mind. Every memory, every feeling, every fear is stored in our body.

The mp3 combines deep relaxation and hypnosis techniques, which enables mothers to prepare emotionally as well as physically for conception. Once deeply relaxed, the techniques and suggestions on this mp3 are directed at the subconscious part of the mind and takes you on a journey to recognise and then “let go” of any reasons which may be holding back your body from conceiving.

The IVF Companion

The mp3 comes in 3 parts - An introduction followed by Track 2 The IVF Companion Pre Embryo Replacement, which is listened to leading up to replacement of the embryos. After this you listen to the the Track 3 The IVF Companion Post Embryo Replacement. This session helps your body to be more relaxed, helps to pass the time more effectively and helps with visualising your body accepting the embryos.

Overcoming Morning Sickness
The overcome morning sickness mp3 takes you to a deeply relaxed state in which you tune into the part of your mind which controls and manages feelings of well being and comfortable digestion.

When you are deeply relaxed, your analytical, critical and rational mind (the conscious part) takes a rest while you then tune into your subconscious (like when you are day dreaming). In this deeply relaxed state, your subconscious mind becomes very receptive to positive suggestions. The combination of deep relaxation (which in itself will help alleviate the symptoms of morning sickness) and giving a new set of instructions to your mind / body, begins to change the way your body reacts to the changes caused by the pregnancy. These new instructions come into effect both while listening to the mp3, and more importantly after the session.

Once you have listened to the mp3 many times (we recommend you listen to it at least 20 times), your mind and body become more and more comfortable with the concept of a calm birth.

 Breastfeeding Companion
This effective self-hypnosis audio mp3 combines deep relaxation with guided visualisation and support to help you breastfeed successfully.

Breastfeeding difficulties are often due to the mother feeling tense and worried about doing it right or not producing enough milk, not following the natural cues and rhythms of her baby’s need to feed and not eating and drinking enough. All of these factors actually compound the problem, as stress and anxiety are directly linked to a reduction in the production of milk. 

However, once a mother relaxes and begins to trust her body and her baby’s cues to feed, breastfeeding becomes a much easier and more enjoyable experience. In addition by feeding her baby as often as her baby needs, the production and supply of milk will increase and become in unison with her baby’s needs so she will produce exactly the right amount of milk for her baby.

  • be kinder to yourself, 
  • begin to accept and feel there is hope for the future.

Weight loss through healthy choices
The reasons most people over eat have little to do with hunger or their actual need for energy. It is often for reasons such as stress, boredom, habit, loneliness, tiredness, addiction to sugar and dehydration. In addition, ingrained negative thought patterns and associations around food (which come from our previous experiences) and lack of will power, or inability to consciously control the desire to eat certain types of food, prevent them from making healthy choices to reduce their weight.

The process of hypnosis enables powerful communication between your conscious and subconscious and so by listening to and absorbing the words and suggestions, you are able to easily change patterns, thoughts, beliefs and habits at a deeper subconscious level. By creating new associations and patterns, your subconscious is sending new helpful messages to your conscious, so you no longer rely on will power to control what and how much you eat. 

The "Weight loss through healthy choices" track helps you to:-

  • Be more in control of what, when and how much you eat
  • Be more aware of the reasons you used to eat unnecessarily 
  • Change your thinking patterns about food
  • Be attracted to the right types of food and drink which increase your health and vitality
  • Increase your intake of water
  • Reduce any cravings for sweet of fatty food
  • Use simple triggers to prevent snacking
  • Use positive language, images and metaphors to be more in control of your thoughts and actions
  • Listen to your body's signals so you stop eating when you are full
  • See, feel, imagine yourself at a time in the future when you are at a weight and size that pleases you

There is a great deal of evidence that diets do not actually work in the long term. It is only by changing your thoughts, triggers and eating habits to ones which are healthy and beneficial for you that you will reduce your weight and size to one which is right for you. By listening to this track 2 to 3 times a week you will soon notice a change in your patterns, you will be drinking more water, feel less cravings, enjoy the food you do eat and feel more in control of your choices.

Using hypnosis to change your thoughts, patterns and eating habits is becoming more and more popular with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Geri Halliwell, Sophie Dahl and Lilly Allen using it to help reduce and manage their weight.
