Treating Birth Anxiety with Homeopathy & Essential Oils
I specialise in treating birth anxiety using gentle, natural, non-toxic, non-addictive, yet highly effective forms of medicine, as well as with lots of listening, coaching and careful guidance.
What makes you anxious about giving birth?
There are many things that can cause women to fear giving birth, including:
- Previous birth trauma
- The trauma of your own birth
- Media portrayal of birth as frightening and traumatic
- Stories told to you by (well-meaning) friends and family
- Pre-existing conditions and anxiety
- Difficulties conceiving or maintaining pregnancy
- Complications arising from pregnancy
- Lack of a strong relationship with your midwife, with no guarantee of who will be there to help you on the day.
I'm here to listen to you and your story, support you at every step of the journey, and find solutions that will make your birth as easy and stress free as possible.
"During labour I used a 'grounding' essential oil blend. It was so powerful during the birth, because it was that aroma that kept me present. Before I used it, I was having flashbacks of traumatic abuse in my past, but when I smelled it, I could stay in the present moment. Now I use it in my every day life." Gaby
"Jan had an episiotomy with her first baby. When her second one came along, she had a pretty significant tear along the line of her previous episiotomy line. This was her greatest fear with baby number three. She would come to her prenatal appointments with a heavy heart and immeasurable fear. We talked about her past experiences at length, and decided to try Frankinsence and Helichrysum oils every day as a perineum spray to heal and repair those tissues as well as prepare for her next delivery. She agreed and was very committed. She had an incredible birth without a tear! She couldn't have been any happier" Stephanie Fritz, Midwife.
"Hi Jenny, P was born this afternoon! All went as we wished for, quite unbelievable, even if it was longer than expected. Homeopathy was essential in getting the process going again, whenever things were sluggish and also to get my energy going again. He came out waving at us with one hand!" NS, mother of three, after her first home birth.
"I loved, loved, loved using essential oils before, during and after my pregnancy! It was by far the best pregnancy I have had. I used them with my third baby. I used lemon, or any other citrus oil in water, and I never had any swelling. I took 'lifelong vitality' supplements and I felt my hormones were always balanced. I rubbed frankincense and lavender on my abdomen every day to reduce stretch marks... My recovery was so quick I had to remind myself when I got tired that I'd just had a baby. The 'anti-aging' blend made healing a very quick process. I loved having the oils after delivery to continue to help my baby... I knew he was protected because he was in own essential oil bubble." Kathy
"Jenny Hautman treated my acne (suffered from it for 17 years), helped me have an easy pregnancy, an un-medicated home-birth (including Billy being in optimal position) & a quick post-labour recovery, treated Billy's silent reflux and helped boost his natural immunity, and these are not all the things my amazing homeopath has helped with".

Because it's personal...
Instead of giving everyone the same treatment for any one diagnosis, I consider every person I see to be a unique individual.
For example, I may see 100 people with 'anxiety', but each person will respond to their situations differently and each person will most likely need a different remedy, and will respond differently to essential oils.
This is why information about your personal emotional state and disposition is very often a key factor when selecting your prescription.

"Helping families through the primal years
(from preconception to toddlerhood)
with joy, strength, and natural immunity".
I see women and men from all walks of life and of all ages, with a wide variety of complaints, but I have a special interest in helping families to prepare for and recover from birth, and in helping children to sail through the early years with natural immunity and vitality.
In my experience, homeopathy and essential oils can be a catalyst for restoring balance naturally, from within. My job therefore, is to help you better understand and gain control of your health, and your family's health, and to put the information and resources you need to do this, in your hands.

"I have no hesitation in recommending her"
"Jenny has helped my 85 year old mother immeasurably with repeated urinary tract infections and bladder inflammation. After trying many different ways to manage this problem, I took mum to Jenny who prescribed a remedy that had a powerful effect. Over a period of a few months, each time Jenny advised mum to take the remedy there was a positive change in her symptoms and the most recent time has resulted in her becoming symptom free. Mum has been in a cycle of either infection or inflammation for 5 years without respite so being completely symptom-free is something of a RESULT! Jenny also prescribed a particular aromatherapy oil blend for when mum gets distressed (she is of an age when her friends are regularly getting sick and dying which she finds very upsetting). I wasn't sure whether mum would use it but she has and told me that she finds it very comforting to put some on her forehead at night and that it helps her to sleep better. So this has been hugely useful too. If you go to see Jenny you will meet someone who is kind, good humoured and very knowledgeable. She was very considerate of my mum's age and vulnerability for which I was grateful. I have no hesitation in recommending her."

"Amazed by the effectiveness of homeopathy"
"I've recently been amazed by the effectiveness of homeopathy. After 15 years of battling acne including extremely harsh conventional drugs, it only took one homeopathy session with the amazing Jenny Hautman & poof acne gone. Please sign this petition to protect our access to homeopathic remedies"

"Almost hard for me to believe"
"I wanted to let you know that I started my period this week and feel so much better. I did not have such a dramatic hormonal build up and almost no pain which is totally bizarre, almost hard for me to believe"

"Having never tried it before I had heard mixed reviews of homeopathy"
“I visited Jenny Hautman to try and cure my hayfever. I get it incredibly severely from February/March through till mid summer and this year was worse than ever (not helped by the Saharan dust). Having never done it before I had heard mixed reviews of homeopathy. Whereas some swear by it, others are VERY cynical. I had got to the point where I had little other choice with conventional medicine and it was a cheaper option to acupuncture. It turns out it was a quicker more effective option as well. The results were incredible. I have now visited Jenny 3 times over the course of 3 months and my hayfever has completely stopped. In fact it was virtually gone after the first session but Jenny is a perfectionist and wanted to ensure the cure was long term. I don't need to visit her any more and I shouldn’t have to next year either. I honestly couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone else who suffers from hayfever. Thank you Jenny.”

"She was successful in helping relieve my pain and I feel healthier"
"I had an enlarged ovarian cyst which was very painful. After taking the remedies Jennifer recommended and drinking green smoothies, I no longer have pain and the cyst has shrunk. Jennifer is great! Jennifer took the time to explain homeopathy and gave me lots of information to read. She was successful in helping relieve my pain and I feel healthier due to some of her recommendations. Thank you Jennifer!"
