Coping with Parenthood and Handling Life With Your New Baby
However delighted you may be to be expecting this baby, there may also be worries about coping with parenthood. Becoming a parent for the first time can seem quite daunting, or you may be concerned about how your new baby will fit in to your family. Some expectant mothers have worries about breastfeeding or wakeful nights.
In my Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing classes, you can let me know what your worries are, and prepare with confidence for life after birth.
The huge advantage of having individual hypnobirthing classes is that we can take the time to specifically address these sorts of issues. I can help you to build up whatever positive mental tools you need for this new stage of life.
That way, for example, you could:
- have skills up your sleeve for remaining calm while your new baby cries and your toddler wants attention
- enjoy using the self-hypnosis you’ve learned for the birth to relax during breastfeeding
- let your self-hypnosis lull you back to sleep after getting up in the night for the fourth time
- discover for yourself your own style of being a mother so that you can relax into the role in
In short, would it be good to clear up whatever currently stops you from looking forward to parenthood, so that you can feel excited when the birth of your baby begins?
I felt more prepared for new motherhood through valuable dialogue and working through sticking points during Confident Childbirth classes. JI
