" After being highly recommended to try Maggie Howell's Natal Hypnotherapy CD's for the birth of my second child, I am happy to say that I am so glad I did. Even though I only had chance to listen to the CD a couple of times before the day of the birth arrived, I found it very useful.
From 3am until my baby arrived at 11.44am I found the music gave me a calm focus, even when we got stuck in traffic on the way to the hospital! The music helped me breath through each contraction and make me determined not to get stressed. The relaxing birth music CD is still something I use when my baby sleeps to keep a calm and relaxed atmosphere around the house.
Everytime I hear the music it makes me emotional as I remember what a special day the birth of my baby girl was.Thanks so much!"
"Thanks to Natal Hypnotherapy I had an amazing experience giving birth to my gorgeous baby boy. The techniques allowed me to have a drug free home birth in water. The program gave me a whole new outlook on giving birth! Thank you once again Maggie"

"Eventually, after 24 hours of niggling contractions, I lay down to use Maggie Howell’s Natal Hypnotherapy CDs: a powerful evolution of the original hypnobirthing concept. It was a dizzying, enlightening process and, when I “came to”, I knew exactly what I needed to do" James and Beverely talk about their birth in their new book "Touching Distance"

"Even though I ended up having a pre planned caesarean section (my little boy was breech), I didn't regret for one minute the wonderful time I spent using Maggie's Natal Hypnotherapy System. I LOVED the birthing stories in the book which were uplifting and inspiring and made me excited to try the techniques I learnt from the CDs.
Every evening I would take an hour just to myself to listen to the CDs and reaffirm all the positive, exciting things that were taking place. Even though I was denied the opportunity to put all my new found techniques into practice, I used the relaxation techniques when I went into theatre to have my operation as I was very nervous and knew it would help me remain calm.
I really feel that taking that time to breathe and relax was invaluable and contributed hugely to my very positive pregnancy experience. Now then ladies, with me: 3,2,1, RELAAAAX:-)."
Natal Hypnotherapy™ is the UK's leading approach to hypnosis for birth, commonly referred to as "hypnobirthing". However, Natal Hypnotherapy™ should not be confused with HypnoBirthing (the Mongon method) as they differ in several ways. HypnoBirthing originated in the US, is based primarily on attending a set course, requires a change of certain words such as contraction to Surge and has a single set of CDs to back up the courses.
