Her birth experience was so positive that she has gone on to help over 100,000 women

Mother of five home birthed sons Maggie Howell, welcomes the new [NICE| which state that for many women, giving birth at home is safer than in hospitals.

Maggie says “Giving birth does not have to be a traumatic and medicalised process during which the woman feels scared, out of control and a cog in the NHS maternity system. The NICE guidelines, which were published today, have recognised that the evidence to date indicates that women who choose to have their babies in the safety and privacy of their own home under the care of a Midwife, or in a Midwifery led birthing unit have less complications and hence intervention. It is wonderful news that women will now finally be given a more realistic (evidence based) view of home births.”

Maggie chose to have her sons at home as she instinctively felt safer in own surroundings. She had used self hypnosis to prepare for her first birth and was aware that if she stayed calm, focused and relaxed, her body was far more likely to birth her baby without the need for intervention.

In spite of concerns from friends and family members, her husband and midwife were very supportive. She has since gone on to have four more children who were all born in the same room.
Her birth experience was so positive that she has gone on to help over 100,000 women by teaching them deep relaxation, visualisation and self hypnosis techniques through her Natal Hypnotherapy programme
