Valentines Competition


Elie (please email so I can send you your prize)

NOTE: As a special thank you for those of you who have entered this competition but not been lucky enough to win, I would like to offer you the opportunity of purchasing the programme for the amazing price of £26. If you are interested in this offer please email me at

Okay so I know that Valentines day is all about love and affection between intimate companions but for many that love culminates in having children so I thought it would be a lovely time to launch this competition. It also happens to coincide with the completion of a very exciting project and so the timing is perfect.

That project was the turning of my Hypnosis for Childbirth mp3s into a complete Hypno 4 Birth Home Study Programme. I have been busy putting together a workbook/manual that helps women understand more about the benefits of using these mp3s during childbirth and I've also done some re-writing/recording and added 2 additional mp3s.

As you work your way through the manual you will learn:

  • How the muscles of the uterus are designed to work during labour and how fear and anxiety affect them working efficiently.
  • How to change negative thinking habits and beliefs to positive ones that support your desire to have a calm, comfortable birth experience.
  • How to tap into your own natural birthing instincts.
  • What hypnosis is and what it isn't.
  • The impact the mind and your imagination has upon your body and what you experience.
  • A variety of techniques to use during your pregnancy to prepare your mind and body for a positive birth experience.
  • How your birth companion can support you.
  • How to use the techniques during labour and birth
The manual is supported by 8 mp3s and a relaxation plan to help you structure your practise. You will also be sent an invitation to my private Hyp 'n Happening Google Group where you can post any questions you may have and meet other mums and mums-to-be using hypnosis for their birth preparations.

The mp3s that you will receive are as follows:
  • 5,4,3,2,1, relax which is already available as a free download so that you can find out if you enjoy listening to my voice.
  • Cloak of Protection to protect you from outside negative influences (a new mp3 currently not available)
  • Birth Affirmations which provide a structured way to practise new thoughts
  • Natural Calm Progressive Relaxation.
  • Glove Relaxation to learn how you can utilise the power of your mind and your imagination to change your experience of sensations within your body (re-written and newly recorded)
  • Cushion of Comfort to stimulate your endorphins your body's natural pain relief.
  • Surge with Sea Birth Rehearsal Imagery (a new mp3 currently not available).
  • Fear and Emotional Release to help let go of any negative thinking and beliefs, to clear the way for your new positive thoughts that will lead to the acceptance that birth can indeed be a calm, comfortable experience that YOU are in control of.
All mp3s are accompanied by beautiful piano music written and recorded especially for me by Paul Herbert.

And the good news is that I have FIVE of these new Hypno Birth Home Study sets to GIVE AWAY. All you have to do is to write about this competition with a link to this page of my blog to let others know it is available. It might be that you are a member of a forum like NetMums, Baby Centre or Mums Like You, a keen Tweeter on Twitter or have your own blog.

Once you've done that comment on this post with the link to wherever you've written about the competition (or email me at with your link) so that I can add your name into the draw. The more links you place the more entries you will have into the draw (this can include different birth boards on the same forum).

And even if you are not pregnant why not do this for a friend. The opportunity to have a more positive birth experience is the best gift you could give them.

The competition will run for a month starting today (Valentines Day) and closing at midnight on 14th March (my Birthday - how appropriate) . The draw will be made on 15th March and winners names will be placed on the top of this blog entry (if your due date falls within this period and you would still like to benefit from this programme email me separately).

Please help me spread the word that birthing really can be a normal, natural, comfortable event for most women.

  1. What a wonderful competition. I have just posted this link on BC Hypno Birth mums and mums to be. After my amazing hyono birth using hypnosis techniques I would love to win one for my lovely friend who has just found out she is pregnant.
    Btw the 14th is also Mothers Day!

  2. Hi Dany, I've also posted this on the Due September 2010 BabyCentre board. I am very interested in hypnobirthing, doing my research now as not due until 17th Sept.

  3. Hello - I've just posted this as my Facebook status after being referred here by a pal from the BabyCentre birth club forum.

    Fab competition, good luck everyone!

    PS not sure if you'll see my status without a friend request, but my referral is here:!/profile.php?ref=profile&id=873395127

  4. Great competition - I would love to win for myself as I am coming up to 20 weeks pregnant and am loving the relaxation mp3 you have on here so would love to use your other mp3's!!

    I have posted on netmums (warwickshire board)

    and on happy hippy mummies board on BC:

    (Had to log in as my husband to get it to work!)

  5. Hello, wow what a fantastic prize, if we don't win, how can we get hold of this package anyway??

  7. Hi Amanda (and all)

    Thank you for helping me spread the word that birthing is a normal, natural event for most women. In answer to your question it will be available to purchase on my site from 14th March at, I would hope you agree, a really fab price of £36. I really want this to be affordable in order to help make these wonderful techniques available to all. Those who have reviewed the programme say I'm nuts but I wrote it because I know that many women would love to attend a course but just can't afford it. I didn't want that to be the case with this home study programme. As a thank you though to everyone who has entered the competition and posted links but not lucky enough to win I am going to offer the Hypno 4 Birth programme for the price of my current 5 x mp3s - £26. Maybe I am nuts ;-) but I don't care as you will read in my workbook I'd love to brainwash every woman into believing that she is perfectly designed to give birth comfortably instead of the current negative brainwashing that we have.

    Good luck everyone xx

  8. What a lovely prize! My friend used this technique, I wish I had known about it for my first. Oh well, maybe for the next time!

    I've tweeted your link (@missielizzieb)
