Free excerpt from the 'new baby notebook'
This is an excerpt from the note I have written to help with the early days of life with a newborn. I wrote this after listening to what new mothers told me they wish they’d known before their baby was born, as well as capturing what I wish I’d known too!
The note is intended to be practical, with mothers I have taught adding any other tips they want to pass on. It really is a joint effort.. because as the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a baby!
Here's what one of my Hypnobirthing Place mums said about it:
"This is gold dust! So many things I wouldn't have even thought about, especially the remedies for helping with recovery after the birth and with breastfeeding. It's very reassuring to have it - thank you!!!"
When you do a private or group Hypnobirthing Place course, you'll be sent the full guide as part of your follow-up support. For now, click the pic to download!
FREE POSITIVE BIRTH AFFIRMATIONS TO HELP WITH YOUR HYPNOBIRTHING PRACTICE
These little beauties are designed to help programme your subconscious to tune into your natural ability to give birth, your strength and resilience.
Building up your self confidence and releasing fear is an important part of Hypnobirthing. Remember, your job is to focus on the type of birth you want, your midwives are there to worry about the 'what-if's'.
Feel free to print them to put up around your home. In doing so, you'll be creating a wonderful, safe, inspiring environment for you to enjoy your pregnancy in. When it's time to give birth, these affirmations will act as a trigger to help you relax, feel resourceful - whatever it is you need in that moment. You can print off a 2nd set to take to the hospital if needed, or have them as a pack to hold and flick through.
You can download these positive affirmations for FREE by clicking on the pic.
I hope you find them as useful as I did during my pregnancy and birth with Iris.
FREE 6 MINUTE RELAXATION!
WHETHER YOU'RE PREGNANT, OR LOOKING AFTER A LITTLE ONE OR TWO, THIS IS FOR YOU.
Being kind to yourself and taking care of yourself is just as important as looking after your baby. This short relaxation is about bringing in some self-love to your day, with a focus on some gentle gratitude and nourishing time out.
It can be done at any time of day and is recommended as a super alternative to putting washing away or swiping on instagram.
It's lovely to do it in bed or sitting comfortably on a chair at home. But it IS portable too, and is particularly nice to do when you have a moment when you're out and about. Maybe on a park bench if your baby is asleep in its buggy, or in the 10 min queue at the post office. If you are pregnant and still commuting to work, try it on the bus or train.
See how good it feels to take some time out for yourself! Enjoy x
