'I loved everything about this CD - the message, the soothing voice over, the choice or music and sound effects - PERFECT!' Veronika Robinson, Editor, The Mother Magazine, Author of "The Drinks are on me" "I have been using the relaxation techniques from the CD during feeds - it works brilliantly! The CD helped me to relax and feel more positive and really helped me to regain faith in my body.' Lisa

About the Author

Maggie didn't set out to become a birth expert - in fact, she's an unlikely convert. She was a busy international sales executive who only reluctantly attended a self hypnosis course to help her with her first birth. But she was blown away by the mind's ability to control the body's response to pain and 3 months later, she had a peaceful, manageable birth at home without so much as a paracetamol - to the surprise of her and her NHS midwife who said: "Maggie appeared to be 'sleeping' during most of her contractions, breathing slightly more deeply as they peaked. She used no pharmacological methods of pain relief and conducted her labour and delivery entirely under self-hypnosis. She appeared to experience no pain and very little discomfort." It was the turning point in her life. Inspired by her experiences, she trained to become a clinical hypnotherapist and left her job to pursue her new life goal: to teach other women the techniques which help them have a positive birth. The result was Natal Hypnotherapy(t), the UK's leading provider of hypnosis for childbirth. The philosophy is simple: to help women have a better birth. Maggie's work is revolutionising women's birth experiences by teaching them to overcome fear and work with their bodies during birth. Maggie says: "In our society, fear has become the overriding emotion pregnant women feel about childbirth - something fuelled by TV depictions and horror stories other mums love to tell. We have not been brought up to see birth as a positive thing, so we've lost confidence in our own ability to give birth naturally and so go into it fearful and anxious - feelings which cause much of the pain and complications in birth." The facts speak for themselves: Natal Hypnotherapy(t) users have an average caesarean rate up to half the national average and are recommended by 97% of users. Medical research has repeatedly found that hypnosis reduces surgical intervention, use of pain medication, mum's pain perception, and labour times. Maggie says: "This could revolutionise the way women give birth. If we could give every pregnant woman in the UK a Natal Hypnotherapy(t) CD to listen to we could save the NHS a fortune and change birthing culture!" It may not be on prescription yet, but Maggie's work is already changing the birthing world. Thanks to Maggie, effective birth preparation is no longer only available for those with the luxury of money and time. Her range of self-hypnosis CDs for pregnancy and birth, and new book "effective birth preparation - your practical guide to a better birth" are accessible for everyone, and designed to fit into a hectic life. From terrified teenage mums to women planning their sixth home birth, the techniques have helped women from all walks of life have a more positive birth. Today, Maggie has personally trained over 500 midwives, has a network of practitioners who teach the techniques in comprehensive workshops all over the country, regularly appears as a birth expert across the media, and has used the techniques for the births of each of her five sons plus helping in excess of 100,000 women have a better pregnancy and birth experience!

Format: Audio CD
Without this CD I would not have been able to continue breastfeeding for as long as I did (6 months with both of my boys).
I used the hypnosis track the most-it is designed for use when you are not actually breastfeeding. I would listen to it usually in the evening when my husband would take the baby to give me a rest. With my first baby the hypnosis helped me through feeding a premature baby, poor milk supply and 2 bouts of breast thrush. And my second baby had lactose-intolerant colic. Listening to Maggie Howell's soothing voice immediately relaxed me and I could feel my body being restored and even my breasts making more milk (honestly!) I also slept better afterwards and used some of the techniques when trying to get back to sleep after night feeds.
It gave me the confidence to carry on breastfeeding and I did come to love feeding and felt really sad when the boys weaned. I would say I listened to the CD most evenings for the first 12 weeks. I listened to the other track which is a lovely relaxing one that you have on while you are feeding your baby-it really makes you stop trying to multitask/watch tv/text etc and appreciate the moment-breastfeeding is such a special time and its a phase that is over in a flash.
