Fertility & Hypnobirthing
"After four heartbreaking years of trying for a baby, Fran implemented a range of techniques that finally helped us to conceive the baby we had wished for, for so long. Her determination to help us succeed, her intuitiveness in identifying potential issues, and her warm, down to earth personality ensured that the whole experience of using hypnotherapy and reiki to aid fertility was a positive one. This continued during the hypnobirthing sessions we participated in in the run-up to the birth of our beautiful baby daughter, and although we didn't get the swift dreamy water birth we had hoped for, it was a calm experience that we look back on with happiness! Thanks Fran"
Whether you have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility or have a physiological impediment, I can help you overcome subconscious blocks that are often the cause of infertility whether there is a physiological cause or not. Many of us do not realise just how deeply certain experiences throughout life have affected our self-beliefs - some may not even remember the experiences at all! Or it may be that the deep stress levels brought on by an infertility diagnosis are affecting you to the degree that infertility treatment is just not working for you, not yet.
- Dispel any negative fears or myths you may have regarding your pregnancy.
- Help you feel calm and relaxed throughout your pregnancy and learn to trust your body and your instincts.
- Promote restful sleep each night.
- Shorten the first stage of labour by several hours.
- Eliminate fatigue during labour, leaving mum feeling fresh, awake and with energy for the actual birthing.
- Help you and your birthing partner both feel calm and relaxed as you joyfully wait for your new arrival. Your partner needs only attend one session but can attend more or all if they wish.
- Bring about a more rapid postnatal recovery.
I provide three CDs-one general relaxation CD and two birthing CDs. One of these CD's is to be used daily. This programme is designed to not only empower you to achieve your desired birth but also to teach you to be calm and relaxed by learning relaxation techniques to help you move on after the birth, providing you with a tool in your box for life. For costs, please get in contact.
Parent, struggling to find help for your child?
"As a mother, I know the lengths you would go to to help your child, whom may be struggling with life's challenges, sometimes asking for help with this is hard, it doesn't make you a bad parent, it makes you a good one!"
Fran is experienced in working with all walks of life and having volunteered on the teenage Oncology ward in Leeds General Infirmary and at the Robert Ogden Centre at St James’ Hospital; she is able to adapt all sessions to suit any age.
"Your perserverence helped us immensely amd we now have a beautiful little girl to show for it!"
"Hypnobirthing was amazing...it altered my state of mind and I left each session feeling elated, confident and assured."
"The last 6 weeks of my pregnancy were very tough. Lots of discomfort, insomnia morning sickness and anxiety.
This was my 2nd baby and and like my first was breech, meaning I had to opt for 2nd elective cesarian section.
Fran helped me relax, sleep and stay focussed on the joy of having a new baby after the procedure and gave me confidence to over come anxieties I had over the epidural and spinal block.
The day my daughter was born leaves me with very good memories and I have continued to recover very well.
We are now enjoying being a family of 4 and having a wonderful experience learning from each other.
Frances has helped me to deal with less sleep, stay relaxed happy and calm. She has helped me to prioritise my recovery caring for our new baby whilst balancing being a mum of a 2 1/2 year old.
My husband and are enjoying this very special time.
Thank you frances!"
"I really believe now that the hypnobirthing made my labour much quicker. It's made us both think differently about our medical practice in general."
"I visited Frances after suffering an Ectopic pregnancy, I was struggling to recover emotionally and after unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant again for a year I was feeling at breaking point. I left my first session feeling a huge weight had lifted and I could move forward with life, three months later I fell on with my little boy Austin and was over the moon after having such a wonderful experience the first time with Frances I decided to do hypnobirthing.
I looked forward to my sessions running up to my due date and on the day I had my little boy, I had a water birth with just gas and air. I used my hypnobirthing techniques and had my recording on loop. I was over joyed with my birth and couldn't be happier with my experience with Frances, I think absolutely everyone should pay her a visit!!
