Our Blissful Birth programme teaches you how to overcome your fears about giving birth so you can break the cycle and have the best possible experience.

Blissful Birth have this week offered free sample of their fear management workbook in response to news that over one third of women cite giving birth as their greatest fear.

The poll, conducted in January by the Telegraph, in conjunction with Bounty and MORI, surveyed 900 women to find out their greatest concern before starting a family.

35 percent of mothers said the health of the child had been their greatest concern, a further 35 percent said that giving birth was their greatest fear.

Even more interestingly, fears about giving birth rose to 41 per cent among women with more than one child.

Blissful Birth spokeswoman, Heidi Woodgate, says, “As soon as you get pregnant, it seems there is an endless stream of women queueing up to tell you their horror story. Add to this the portrayal of birth on television, and it’s little wonder giving birth is a woman’s greatest fear.”

“Fears about giving birth cause stress which actually slows down labour, and creates a vicious cycle. It doesn’t need to be like this though, even if you had a bad experience last time.”

“Our Blissful Birth programme teaches you how to overcome your fears about giving birth so you can break the cycle and have the best possible experience.”

Blissful Birth is a downloadable hypnobirthing class created by husband and wife team, Rob and Heidi Woodgate. Both are Cognitive Hypnotherapists and members of the National Council for Hypnotherapy.

Research has shown that the calmer the expectant mother is, the more beneficial it is for the baby. Blissful Birth teaches expectant mothers how to stay relaxed and calm during pregnancy, labour and birth.

Blissful Birth also helps expectant mothers to understand what their body is going through and what to expect. It allows them to understand why their body is doing the things it is and helps them to keep in mind that childbirth is a natural part of life and it does not have to painful.

This programme has proven itself time and again to help expectant mothers have a natural birth experience, and it is an ideal partner to traditional antenatal classes.

Rob Woodgate is also the co-creator of the Hypnotension Programme, which helps people with high blood pressure.

The Hypnotension™ Programme looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure (Hypertension).
