“We see you. We see you, mamma, mummy, mum.  We see your weary eyes and aching arms, and the feelings barely tucked in beneath your “I’m okay”.

We hear you. We hear your sureness and your wavering uncertainties. We hear what you say. And we hear what you don’t say . . . in everything you say. 

We’ve questioned ourselves too. We’ve felt lost in countless hours. We’ve felt the power of having pieces of our heart walking the earth, and the fear that something could break them.  We’ve felt the polar pulls to both run away and stay.   The pulse and power of motherhood.  A singular journey to be made without a map (or a nap!).

We see you mama. We hear you, mama.   And this…..this space is for you.”

Kira Dorian and Tracy Adams, Clinical Hypnotherapists and founders of HypnoMothering

A Gentle Transition to Motherhood

​HypnoMothering is about helping mums everywhere as they begin their journey as an expectant mum, a new mum or a mum of young children.   It is a class that teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to  make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.

It aims to:

  • extend to mums the tools that hypnotherapists use for anxiousness, sleep issues and worries

  • guide new mums into a gentle transition into motherhood, whether you are pregnant or have small children

  • empower mums to embrace their own unique journey free from outside expectation or judgement

  • provide a safe space for mothers everywhere to explore, enhance and resolve their myriad of feelings

How is Self-Hypnosis Helpful for Mothers?

  • Rapid Relaxation: Hypnosis provides easy to learn techniques to quickly relax mum’s body while creating mindfulness and balance.

  • Positive Emotional Resources: Quick self-hypnosis techniques allow mothers 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 a mother tune in to her baby and her own natural instincts​

​How HypnoMothering Came to be​

The developers of HypnoMothering, Kira Dorrian and Tracy Adams, are each clinical hypnotherapists who are also childbirth educators and mums of twins. Over time, Kira and Tracy began to notice a pattern in the stories from the new mothers they worked with in their HypnoBirthing classes. As these women transitioned into their new role as “parent”, each woman seemed to have a unique experience with a broad spectrum of emotions that ranged from total elation at her new life to complete despair. Seeing the need to equip mums, Kira and Tracy created HypnoMothering — extending tools used in their hypnotherapy practices to mums to be, allowing women to prepare for and engage in the experience of motherhood as gently and as joyfully as possible.  HypnoMothering has grown to become an international program with Practitioners across the world.

Topics covered in class

  • Self-hypnosis to relax and find balance and calm even on very stressful days

  • Easy techniques to shift perspective and take the sting out of tough emotions

  • Introduction to hypnotic time distortion to super charge a power nap

  • Strategies for creating and flexing with motherhood’s “new normal”

  • Learning to tune into your baby to enhance bonding and mother’s intuition

This is a fantastic course to take while you are pregnant as you will have these skills at your fingertips from the start.  For mums with new babies or young children, it gives you a way to emotionally deal with the difficult times.

​”This was a wonderful course and I would recommend it to anyone whether they were expecting their first or fourth child.”   –  anon
