Oxford Hypnobirthing

Wahoo! You’re pregnant!

And that’s the green light for everyone to share really unhelpful birth stories. But thankfully? Someone has recommended hypnobirthing. And maybe your lovely Midwife has sung about the benefits too.

But either way. You’re in the right place. Years of experience. Unstoppable passion. And real. REAL

Birth Hypnosis!

So while other Hypnobirthing methods downplay the hypnosis (and try to convince you that relaxation is enough!). The evidence behind Hypnosis in birth is compelling.

And given that hypnosis has been helping with pain for thousands of years?

You need to do a Hypnobirthing course that teaches you hypnosis!

Oxford Hypnobirthing Classes are taught by Steph McGee, pictured in a beautifully light attic room on the left of shot, head and shoulders visible wearing a pale grey jumper.

What makes Oxford Hypnobirthing different?

Hypnosis. Of course. But you’ll also learn what makes you tick.

Where all those birth fears or anxieties come from.  What to do about them! And how to stop them in their tracks!

Ever wanted to switch off fear & pain in 3.2.1?

You are in the right place!

And I work for free. Seriously. Sign up for any group or private course and you’ll have my ongoing support & adoration. But I also offer a Free Hypnobirthing Class once a month for anyone interested in worked me.

And for everyone who’s working with me!

 

Will hypnobirthing help with the pain?

 

Yes.

But look. You’re going to give birth to a baby. And right now? It’s normal normal to feel a bit apprehensive or under prepared.  You might be expecting pain, tearing or worried about birth poo.

But birth is not designed to be painful.

It’s not designed to be frightening, noisy or even difficult.

And we’re not supposed to worry about birth.

So Hypnobirthing helps you take birth back to what it should be. A normal (amazing!) event that you can be happy with.

So if you want dignity. Or you want to feel empowered. And you want to feel calm & confident during birth?

You need Hypnobirthing!

And here’s what we do

Your baby will come out. That’s guaranteed. So let’s stack the good birth odds in your favour and get informed about birth, your options and your instincts. Learn how to birth well. And if you have a partner (or two) help them feel confident & better equipped to you help you.

Hypnobirthing is more than just a pain relief method. It’s your mind-body birthing know how. Plus everything you ever wanted to know about birth:

 

  • Advanced hypnosis & scripts
  • Relaxation & comfort measures
  • Breathing techniques
  • Massage
  • Tearing prevention
  • Hypnobirthing Anchors
  • Positive birth preparation & management
  • Affirmations, scripts, congruency
  • And more!

On your Oxford Hypnobirthing courses we cover all types of birth. So whether you’re planning a home birth, obstetric birth, water birth, C-section or getting an epidural as fast as you can.

Hypnobirthing needs to be in your tool kit.

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing combines modern antenatal education, brain-birth insights & self hypnosis for child birth. Plus a full tool kit of relaxation techniques, comfort measures and reframing of fear. Your course combines to relieve you of birth uncertainties or birth fears & provides you with a confident route forward. Hypnobirthing can ultimately help you to have a more comfortable, calm & empowered pregnancy, labour & birth. 
Incorrectly labelled alternative or just a pain relief method; Hypnobirthing is made of medical hypnosis, birth science & logic. Hypnobirthing utilises the link between Body & Mind to keep birth on track. Helping you birth without fear – calmly & efficiently.
My clients describe hypnobirthing as invaluable. If you’re pregnant? Arm yourself with Hypnobirthing. If you want to drive, get a driving license. If you’re jumping out a plane, do a pre jump course.  And if you’re doing brain surgery? Go to medical school.

 

That’s how important Hypnobirthing is.

My Promise to you

Golden hour, mother with her newborn after birth
I care what happens to you. And I’m here to help. When you book one of my courses my support is ongoing. Because you never know when your ‘plan’ might change or baby will throw a curve ball.

Or you just need to talk to someone who can see the bigger picture and reframe things…It’s really helpful!

And your Hypnobirthing should be easy. So if you want a group course, but can’t make a class? If your course is full?

Hopping between group Hypnobirthing courses is possible. Booking a mix of private & group classes is easy.

Is Hypnobirthing worth it?

You will remember your baby’s birth forever. So feeling more relaxed during your pregnancy & stacking the good birth odds in your favour makes sense. With endless advanced hypnosis, a diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy & 3 hypnobirthing methods under my belt. I want to help you.

If you’re researching safe sleep options, measuring prams to see which will fit your car or trying out Oxford sling library in advance – Hypnobirthing can help you. Because being prepared. Knowing your options. Understanding your body & mind. Knowing how to stay calm & confident. And enjoying your birth. Really helps.

You can find good information about babies and birth in many places, but Hypnobirthing is the only thing I know that actually makes a difference to your experience of giving birth.

A few Key Hypnobirthing points

 

When should I start Hypnobirthing?

Most people book after 20 weeks and start before 35 weeks. The sooner you start, the more practice time you have. But it’s never too late. I’ve been booked as late as 41 weeks!

Is your Hypnobirthing support for everyone?

Yes. I’m fairly unique in offering ongoing support to everyone – private or group. Please don’t underestimate the value of this. If you need it? It’s invaluable!

If this an antenatal course?

Yes. With a lot of Hypnosis & Hypnobirthing! I’ve heard people say hypnosis is just a small part of Hypnobirthing.  And it worries concerns me. My promise is that I’ll share the clever hypnosis stuff. And the misconception that Hypnobirthing is just for home birth & water birth? We’ll demistify that & cover Hypnobirthing for all other types of birth as well.

A little about me

Hi I’m Steph.

I love my work. I love learning. I love doing things the RIGHT way. And I LOVE my hypnobabies!!

I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist & a Hypnobirthing Teacher. I have worked with some of the leading names in Hypnobirthing & Hypnotherapy. Trained by Katharine Graves herself, I also hold a diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy & a degree in Biology & Psychology.

I’ve had 3 fabulous hypnobirths. And on top of loving my births? It undoubtedly made a difference to my babies.

My skills attract lovely people. My therapies help lift birth & breastfeeding trauma. Build confidence. Release fear, anxieties, phobias and more. If something bothers you & your mind is a factor – Hypnotherapy / Hypnobirthing can help.

Don’t fear birth.

Your body knows what to do & your baby isn’t worried! But there’s a whole system to navigate. And often it’s a case of don’t ask, don’t get. Many people are OK with this. And that’s fine. But if you want more?

You’re in the right place.
