Product Description

Review

"I recently lost my job and as a single mum, am facing some major financial and career challenges - I could not believe how just listening to the CD a few times has helped me feel more positive, relaxed and even excited about finding a new way to move forward in my life" - Emma, Surrey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!

I came across Maggie Howell when I was looking for a hypnosis track for childbirth. Listening to the Hypnosis for childbirth and the Labour companion made my third labour a truly unique and wonderful experience... Natal hypnotherapy rules.
Not being able to listen to the CD after the birth, however, left a big gap in my life. I missed her soothing voice, the truly calming music and the wonderful, revitalised and relaxed feeling I used to have when waking up from the hypnotic sleep. I was over the moon when I found her Relaxation CD. Listening to it was like coming home after a long journey. Like her stroking my forehead and helping me to relax.
Before listening to her CDs I was convinced that I have my own techniques to manage stress and relax. But Maggie Howell is like the iPad - you don't realise how much you need her until you try it once. Thank you Maggie for your natal hypnotherapy and this track, you really changed my life through them.

I used M Howell CD as préparation for a VBAC. Everyone was amazed that I did not need pain relief. I then used her CD Fast postnatal recovery...and then...I missed my CD relaxation companion and decided to buy this one. It's great. Can't recommend enough. I am back to work and feel much less anxious wit everything and everyday life.

This CD helped me feel a little more relaxed, but wasn't anything that would significantly change my way of life I don't think. The voice is soothing and liked the way it talked through listening and relaxing each part of the body. I wouldn't say it was value for money either.

I initially used the hypnotherapy for birthing CD in this series and thought it was fantastic so bought this one for more general use. This one is about 30 mins in length so much shorter then the pregnancy one and although I was initially disappointed by this, actually the shorter length makes it much more useable and useful. Contains some excellent techniques which are memorable and that I find myself using during particularly busy or stressful days. Would recommend it 100%. Give it a go!

After one stressful day I had sorting lots of things out, both at home and outside, I had a bath then settled down on my bed to listen to the C.D. When I get into the subconscious state my dream is of sitting on grass by a lake watching ducks and swans on the water, birds chirping in the trees, and the sun is shining down on me, total tranquillity. When I'm brought out of the subconscious state, I am so relaxed I can drift off to sleep and have a restful night. Year's ago I saw a hypnotherapist and he gave me a cassette tape of relaxation, but unfortunately it got broken during house move, so was glad I found this C.D. I only use it when things have stressed me out, not often. But thanks for being of help.

Speaking as a hypnotherapist myself I was delighted with this tape. The voice is just right. So soporific. You have a choice with this one. You can either slip off into beautiful dreams or you can stay awake and enjoy the philosopy.

Very relaxing indeed, I use this CD if I need a nap in the afternoon! I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone who has a few minor worries that they need to put in perspective, or just wants a nap!
