Trance-forming Childbirth for You

I work with Mums to be and their birthing partners to ensure a stress-free pregnancy and comfortable birth. My mission is to support my clients to believe in themselves, take control and determine their own destiny.

My aim is to help those expecting a baby to plan a stress-free pregnancy and birth by teaching a range of strategies to support your baby’s delivery.

Welcome to our World Stories

  • When I found out I was pregnant, I decided to try and prepare for the birth of my baby by doing a hypnotherapy for birthing course. I had heard some really positive stories and was open minded to find out more. Tanya was my birthing coach and she coached me how to enter a trance like relaxed state, believe and trust in my body’s ability to grow my baby and give birth and to view birth as a positive rather than painful experience. Throughout my pregnancy, my friends and family were amazed how calm and relaxed I was and I believe this was due to all the hypno- relaxation techniques I did daily. I found not only did the relaxation techniques help me have a peaceful sleep every night but also gave me skills that helped manage stress with my work too. When my waters broke at home I was able to remain extremely calm and relaxed and breathe through my surges. I got to 7cm at home on my own before I called the midwife to see if I was ready to go into hospital. I was so relaxed on the phone that the midwife did not think I was anywhere near ready until she examined me! When I got to the birthing suite at the hospital I went in the water and listened to my hypnomusic. My mum and husband both said I immediately seemed to go into a trance like state and was actually falling asleep between contractions! My birthing partners who both attended the course with me were able to help me focus on my breathing and support me all the way through using lots of strategies we learnt such as positive birth affirmations and touch. I was able to give birth to my baby girl without any drugs and she came into the world extremely calm without crying and has been a chilled, happy baby since. I view my birth as a positive experience where I had ‘surges’ not contractions, ‘pressure’ not pain and I felt confident. I completely trusted my body and baby to know what to do and relaxed and let my body take over whilst taking my mind somewhere else. I would recommend Trance-Forming Childbirth and Tanya as a birthing coach to any expectant mother. I am so happy that Tanya was a part of my daughter’s journey and will be forever grateful for the skills she has taught me.
