Hi and first of all well done for reaching out. Pregnancy can be so overwhelming for so many reasons and Covid has certainly added a big, fat, extra layer of stress. You're not alone and it is
possible to feel different!
The other replies have already said what I know too: hypnobirthing is definitely the way forward and you may also find that a 1-1 hypnotherapy session is very useful to eliminate your anxiety - this will ensure the best foundation for hypnobirthing to work well.
I'm a hypnotherapist specialising in fertility, pregnancy and birth
for the past 20 years, teaching hypnobirthing to countless couples with amazing results - I'd love to tell you a bit about the support I can provide, you're welcome to call me (07963 046456) when you have a moment.
Please also come to my free hypnobirthing Zoom sessions
- 30mins of relaxation, stress release and important time with your baby. These sessions (no cost) have provided many women/couples with a strong anchor during lockdown and, I'm delighted to say, have really helped them feel less anxious, alone and scared of birth.
Next Zoom sessions are on Wed 9th Dec ... book your free place on www.thehypnobirthingexperts.com

or simply call me on 07963 046456.
In the meantime focus on 1 day at a time, look for the positives, however small they may seem. If you fill your head with positives then there's less space for the negatives. You can train your mind to connect to the positives and that's so beneficial for your baby's wellbeing too.
I'd love to help and know that hypno techniques can make all the difference. It's important to learn hypnobirthing from a qualified hypnotherapist, especially if you're feeling anxious. The deep relaxation or trance can trigger emotions (known as abreactions) and it's important to know how to release these correctly, possibly with 1-1 hypnotherapy.
Wishing you all the best and hope we can connect online (or in person after lockdown!)
