HypnoBirthing® offers the tools for a calm and comfortable birth.

It equips you with the knowledge to make confident and informed decisions and to empower you through pregnancy, birth and beyond. It’s a philosophy of preparing both your mind and your body for a soft and serene birth experience.

The Mongan method of HypnoBirthing® is the original.

Created by Marie Mongan over thirty years ago, with the intention to challenge the idea that birth is painful, putting into question the fear and the stress that the mother’s body has to go through.

You and your birthing partner will learn the importance of the mind-body connection and how fear can affect your body and your baby. You will be introduced to the practice of deep relaxation and equipped with tools to use during labour, birth, and as new parents.

No matter how you imagine your birth experience HypnoBirthing® is for you.

Whether you are hoping for a totally natural, drug-free birth, or you’d just like some amazing skills and techniques to help you cope with the early stages of labour before pain-relief medication becomes available, HypnoBirthing® is for you.

HypnoBirthing

Will HypnoBirthing® make me cluck like a chicken?

If clucking like a chicken makes your birth experience fun, I certainly won’t stop you! But HypnoBirthing® won’t be the cause of it.

Hypnosis isn’t how it’s usually portrayed on screen. Often when we think of hypnosis we think of stage hypnosis, something that’s used for entertainment.

I can promise you that in HypnoBirthing® there are no pocket watches swinging, finger-clicking or chickens clucking.

Perhaps, not as amusing, but far more useful, we teach self-hypnosis to achieve a deep state of relaxation, but with a heightened state of mental awareness. You always remain in total control but will be deeply relaxed, free of physical and emotional tension.

Will it help me have a perfect birth?

There is no such thing as a perfect birth, and although I wish could, neither I nor the HypnoBirthing® program can guarantee that you will have one.

Every birth is different because every mum and every baby are different.

While there is so much we can do to prepare for birth, every birth is unique. Sometimes things are straightforward and sometimes they are not.

With a HypnoBirthing® education, you will be prepared, relaxed, and confident, no matter what happens on your birth journey.

You will have the knowledge to make informed decisions and learn how to work with your birthing partner as a team to create a truly positive birth experience, where both partners feel in control and empowered.

I don’t know what’s best for you and your family, but you do.

HypnoBirthing

As a HypnoBirthing® educator, I don’t have an agenda other than making sure you are prepared to have a calm and confident birth. I will not tell you how I think you should birth your baby.

No matter what your birth preferences are, whether you want to birth in a hospital, at home, in a pool, in a car, singing show tunes, or on the top of a mountain. Additionally, it makes absolutely no difference to me whether you have an epidural, a belly birth, or a free birth on the beach.

What matters to me is that you feel informed, confident and that you and your birth partner can create a safe environment for you and your baby.

I want your birth partner to be empowered and involved too so that you are both able to feel connected with your baby both before and after your baby is born. You are the people making the best decisions for you and your baby and I want you to trust in yourselves.

No matter what, you have my support every step of the way.

I saw Judi to help me with several issues, in particular, my fear of enclosed spaces. Judi put me at ease from the very first session and I like the way she explains about the brain and how hypnotherapy works. I never imagined how much Judi’s sessions would help me and I have the added bonus of a recording I can listen to whenever I need to relax.

I have recommended Judi to lots of people I know.

Thank you so much, Judi, for what you’ve done for me.

Feeling scared or helpless whenever you turn on the television or scroll through your socials? I feel you, it's been so difficult to process everything and it’s all starting to get to us. The first step when these feelings start to come up is to remind yourself, that in this moment you are safe and everything is OK. Mentally step back and say to yourself, I am safe, and everything is OK. Know that you cannot control what is happening in the world, but you do have control of your mindset and the ability to shift your emotional state.

It also may be helpful to switch off the news. It's good to stay informed, but not at the expense of our mental health. Our brains don't know the difference between imagination & reality. And we watch images of suffering, we feel it too. There are things we can do. For example, we can donate to aid organisations or see how we can volunteer in the community. When we are doing something positive for others we feel better. Watching bad news passively just feeds that sense of helplessness.

Remember your breathing. Did you know that by simply observing and focusing on your breathing can help shift your emotional state? Breathing consciously gives you back control and in 7 exhalations in about a minute's time, you can trigger the relaxation process. Try this:
Take a breath. Sense your belly rising. Now release that breath naturally. Notice how it flows in. Now out. Begin counting from 1 to 7.
✨1, inhale, belly rising and expanding
✨1, exhale, belly releasing and relaxing
✨2, inhaling, belly rising and expanding
✨2, exhaling, belly releasing and relaxing
✨ Continue counting with your body’s own natural breathing rhythm
If you lose count, start again at 1. Do this until you reach the count of 7.

I hope some of these tips speak to you, but if it's starting to feel like anxiety has become a constant companion, please get in touch through the link in my bio and let's see how I can help. https://linktr.ee/judiquirke

Happy Sunday y'all! (As a native Kentuckian living in the UK I just really miss saying "y'all" 😆).

Anyway, a very happy Sunday & just a little reminder to make sure you get a little rest today.

Sunday is a good day to start as we tend not to have as many obligations, so start today - and keep it up all week! If you can prioritise just 15 minutes a day of YOU time, just to do NOTHING, you will feel so much better for it. It helps your mood, decreases the perception of chronic pain, & can even improve your immune system & cardiovascular health.

So think about making a NOT to do list 😉:

✨ Go outside
✨ Be by yourself
✨ Read
✨ Listen to music
✨ Do nothing in particular
✨ Take a walk
✨ Have a bath
✨ Daydream
✨ Meditate or self-hypnosis (shameless self promotion, you can try one of mine - link in bio 😉)

Whatever you choose, I hope you have a lovely and restful Sunday, and are looking forward to a little bit more non-doing this week 😊.

❤ Judi Q

Happy Twosday! 2/2/22!

Did you know...

Today, 2/22/22 is a palindrome, (reads the same forward and backwards), it's on a Tuesday, and we won't get another date like this in 200 years.

Fun facts...

In numerology the meaning of the date 2/22/22 is all about connections and coming together—not just in one-on-one pairs, but among larger groups and communities. Some say it's a particularly good day for manifesting your dreams.

I sort of think everyday is a good day to manifest your dreams, but hey, let's not take any chances 🙂

❤ Judi Q
