More British woman than ever, it seems, are determined to follow the lead of The Duchess of Cambridge since recent reports that Kate has a preference for natural birth preparation techniques that include hypnotherapy, Pilates and water birth. This has led to an immediate and significant boost in interest in Natal Hypnotherapy which helps mums prepare emotionally and physically for birth using self-help, natural techniques.
Furthermore, there has been a 200% increase in monthly sales between May and June 2013, which, if this trend continues, could lead to this becoming a bumper year for UK Natal HypnotherapyTM, whose mission is to communicate to as many UK mothers as possible the value and ease of using this British hypnobirthing method to manage the fear and pain of childbirth.
In particular the best-selling, award-winning Effective Birth Preparation CD has become the new "mamma must-have". In the first week of June, it become the number one best-selling pregnancy and birth title on Amazon following the peak in news stories relating to Kates birth preparations.
The Kate Middleton Effect has been intensified by additional broadcast coverage of the Natal HypnotherapyTM method, such as Beverley Turners glowing accolade on BBC Radio Five's The Bump Club. This celebrity presenter (wife of Olympic rower, James Cracknell), Daily Telegraph journalist
and mum of three, named as her number one book for expectant parents Effective Birth Preparation: Your Practical Guide To a Better Birth
, by Maggie Howell, author and director of Natal HypnotherapyTM. The Book has also won the Practical Parenting & Pregnancy Book of the Year
Bronze Award in 2011/2012.
Maggie is the pioneering British clinical hypnotherapist that developed the Natal HypnotherapyTM method in 2000. She has also seen in the last six weeks a two-fold increase in enquiries for her antenatal hypnobirthing courses, run nationwide, and practitioner training which this March received the ultimate accolade of Royal College of Midwives accreditation. This gives mothers attending the courses the added reassurance that Natal HypnotherapyTM teacher training
