Hello I’m Ruth Sabrosa, Certified Hypnotherapist, Hypnobirthing Practitioner and founder of Mindful Mothering. I’m Mother to three wonderful girls who led me to this important work and they now help me to run Family Empowerment Circles and create little Boxes of Empowerment for parents to enjoy quality time with their children whilst learning and having fun together.
Empowering women as they embark on the most important journey of their lives is one of my favourite things to do and the support doesn’t end once the baby is born. I have created a series of hypnotherapy audio tracks to support mums throughout motherhood from the fourth trimester healing meditation to a breastfeeding relaxation track and later a mindful mothering recording that can be used at any stage of mothering to promote feelings of calm and contentment. If you need something more personalised feel free to contact me for a private hypnotherapy session or join me at the monthly mindful mothering class for mothers of any aged children. You can also bring your child or children along to the family empowerment circle to help them learn valuable tools to see them through life with strength, resilience, kindness and compassion as we explore key issues together.
Hypnobirthing is a buzz word at the moment. It’s everywhere in the birth world but if you’re new to this pregnancy lark then you may be wondering what on earth it’s all about!
Essentially, Hypnobirthing = Calm birthing.
Your mind and body relax in harmony so that your over-busy conscious mind doesn’t interfere with the ancient wisdom of your body during the birthing process.
You learn self-hypnosis techniques to remain calm and relaxed throughout your labour and birth, enabling your body to birth your baby instinctively and without fear. You remain in control no matter where your birthing journey takes you.
Back in 2010, I had envisaged a birth pool, candles and the birth centre for the birth of my first daughter but she had other ideas! She passed meconium, she wanted out so I was sent to the bright lights of the labour ward. This story doesn’t end traumatically here – It was the beginning of a positive, inspiring journey to motherhood.
I have a secret that I am passionate about sharing:
BIRTH CAN BE AMAZING wherever you are and whatever the circumstances. You can be anywhere in your mind, you are limited only by your imagination.
I was on a beach watching the waves come and go as each contraction came and went, bringing me one step closer to meeting my baby. Despite the complications, I felt that giving birth was the most positive, life affirming experience that I have ever had. So much so that I did it again two years later only this time I gave birth to a breech baby at home using only self-hypnosis.
I won’t teach you how to give birth because your body already knows how to do that. I will show you how to access your inner calm and reconnect with your natural birthing instincts.
We will look at your hopes and fears, break them down and let go of any negative issues because fear has no place in the birthing room.
You will leave the workshop feeling relaxed, confident and empowered with all the tools you need to remain calm whatever happens on your baby’s birthday. The skills you learn are not just for birth but also for motherhood and can be applied to any situation in life that you want to improve.
I am proud to share these techniques with you on my bespoke Hypnobirthing course online or privately at your home in London or north-east England. Each Hypnobirthing workshop is tailored to your individual needs and groups are kept small and personal.
So what are you waiting for? Book now to make your birth experience the best it could possibly be…
“If we could empower women in pregnancy, before they become mothers, we could empower womankind, change the face of birth and move one step closer to peace on earth.”

After all the preparation and hard work, the child is born, and with it,
But who supports the mother in her new crucial role?
Ruth founded Mindful Mothering in 2016 and runs a monthly support group for mothers at any stage of mothering to come together, share the joys and challenges and enjoy a deep relaxation to help find calm amongst the chaos. Sessions are currently held online and occasionally at Yogaloom in Muswell Hill and The Life Centre in Islington. You can also download an audio track to listen to at home and program your subconscious mind to become more mindful and present with your children and enjoy motherhood. Please visit the timetable for details of upcoming classes.
