HypnoMothering - Thriving Postpartum
I. See. You.
I see you - mama, mommy, mom. I see your yoga pants and that huge handbag. I see your weary eyes and aching arms, your sore breasts. I see the spot of spit-up you missed, and the feelings barely tucked in beneath your, “I’m okay."
I. Hear. You.
I hear your sureness and your wavering uncertainties. I hear what you say. And I hear what you don’t say . . . in everything you say. I’ve questioned myself too. I’ve secretly (and not so secretly) thought I was a horrible mother. I've secretly (and not so secretly) thought I might just be a wonderful mother one day.
I’ve felt lost in countless hours. I’ve felt the power of having pieces of my heart walking the earth, and the fear that something could break them. I’ve felt the polar pulls to both run away and stay. The pulse and power of motherhood. The drained devastation of motherhood. A singular journey to be made without a map (or a nap!).
I see you, mama.
I hear you, mama.
And this…..this space is for you.
What is HypnoMothering?
You’ve prepared for birth, why not be ready to make the most of those earliest weeks and years with your wee one? So many physical, emotional, and practical changes will unfold all at once, plus there’s this whole new person to get to know.
HypnoMothering is a 2.5 hour class created specifically for mamas to be, new mothers, and moms of young children. Developed by two hypnotherapists, each a mother of twins, this fun, practical class teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to make the most of limited sleep, keep light and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that new parents face.
Is HypnoMothering More than Self-Hypnosis Techniques?
Yes. A HypnoMothering class provides insight and encouragement for every mom at any point on her mothering journey. HypnoMothering aims to equip each mom to clarify her basic needs during baby’s early months, and feel empowered to create her optimum support system. The class explores social and cultural pressures around mothering, and invites each mother to balance the information overflow while acting confidently on her own mothering instincts.
Just some of the good stuff you'll learn:
Rapid Relaxation: Easy to learn techniques to quickly relax your body while creating mindfulness and balance.
Positive Emotional Resources: Quick self-hypnosis techniques allowing you to tap into positive emotions even on difficult days.
Hypnotic Time Distortion for Sleep: Whether you have five minutes or five hours to catch some rest, hypnosis helps your mind and body make the most of the sleep you have.
Connection to Baby: Hypnosis helps you tune into your baby and your own natural instincts.
Pressures and Perspectives: Learn easy techniques to help shift perspective and take the sting out of tough emotions. Work through strategies to confidently cope with the pressures of differing parenting styles, well meaning advice, and outside "help."
Hypnosis Practice: You’ll also receive access to 9 deeper hypnosis recordings designed to make this transition smoother by enhancing your connection to yourself, your baby, and new resources you’re developing moment by moment.
Who is HypnoMothering For?
Mamas to be: The original HypnoMothering class format was created to prepare women for a gentle transition into motherhood. Taken while pregnant with her first baby, a mama-to-be maps a course to ease the adjustments of motherhood.
Mamas with babies under 2 years: This version of HypnoMothering is designed to help mothers find balance and energy throughout the early years of motherhood.
Mamas with preschoolers: This class takes the same basic principles applied in the "younger" versions but makes adaptations for the unique challenges and celebrations of parenting toddlers and preschool aged children.
