About Naomi Newland ~ Registered HypnoBirthing® Practitioner
Naomi is a mother of three children who are all too young for school, a wife, a Certified HypnoBirthing practitioner and is extremely passionate about positive pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
She can normally be found stomping the streets of Tarring with her juggernaut of a buggy, all 3 kids onboard, in a desperate bid to rid herself of her mummy tummy. Alongside the preschool run and keeping her busy family life in some kind of order, she offers HypnoBirthing® classes to prospective parents either from the comfort of her home surroundings in Tarring, Worthing or in customers' own homes.
She is lucky enough to have recently become a "stay at home" mum, packing away her business suits, kissing goodbye to the long commutes and stupidly early alarm calls. Although she does miss her career in sales and marketing - at least then she had a lunch break and could go to the loo unaccompanied!
Naomi's HypnoBirthing journey began back in 2010, when she discovered she was pregnant with her second baby. Having attempted a home birth with her first birth in 2008, she was left with lots of regrets (and stitches in unpleasant places) at not achieving her dream birth. She knew instinctively that things could, and should, have been better for her birth but struggled to know what had been missing. A friend introduced her to HypnoBirthing® and as soon as Naomi read the book, she had a "Eureka!" moment as she realised that HypnoBirthing® offered her all of the missing tools that she had much needed for her 1st birth. Not only that, but all the theories which supported HypnoBirthing® made so much common sense!
She embraced the HypnoBirthing® classes and in the weeks leading up to her birth she and her husband practised the deep relaxation techniques regularly at home, bonding together with the anticipation and excitement surrounding the impending birth.
On the 5th of November 2009 Naomi experienced the high of her life, with a beautiful, serene, life changing, 5hr birth with only 2 1/2 hours of established labour.
The euphoria that Naomi experienced lasted for days, during which time she decided that she needed to share the knowledge and techniques gained from HypnoBirthing® with all pregnant women. She wanted them to realise that birth did not have to be the way "One Born Every Minute" depicts it. Newsflash ladies.... Birth is normal, natural and can be comfortable and joyful! Whoo hoo!
Very soon after her 2nd birth (she wishes she'd known about HypnoBirthing® for her 1st born) she went on to train as a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and has since worked with dozens and dozens of couples from all over Sussex & Hampshire to help them also achieve happy birthing days. Read some of their amazing birth stories here.....
In July 2011, Naomi experienced her 2nd HypnoBirth (3rd baby) which really tested all her HypnoBirthing® skills as this baby was 10lb! She remains very grateful to the trust in her body that she has learnt through HypnoBirthing® that enabled her to birth her baby at home with no damage to her pelvic floor this time during an 18 hour labour!
Naomi recognises that motherhood is life's greatest challenge and can sometimes be lonely when everyone goes off to work. She loves nothing more than a hot cuppa, a slice of cake and a good chin wag, hence all the popular HypnoBirth® Worthing social events that she arranges......
Naomi feels very privileged to be part of couple's preparations for their adventures in family life. She is committed to helping mothers achieve easy, gentle births and feels very strongly about staying in touch with prospective parents in between finishing their course and their birthing day to help keep positive attitudes.
She is very enthusiastic about raising awareness of HypnoBirthing® as many people have a misconception of what HypnoBirthing® is all about. She works closely with local midwives, Family centres and baby/pregnancy related businesses to share her love for this amazing way of birthing and educating expectant women. She has also had her pregnancy diary featured in Pregnancy and Birth magazine and various articles printed in The Worthing Herald and a radio interview on Splash FM. Click here to enjoy them.
