NLP for Birth Workers

NLP for Birth Workers Practitioner


This might sound melodramatic but when Diane (my late wife) was diagnosed with cancer for the first time nearly 18 years ago, NLP saved my life, at very least that’s how it feels.

We were home schooling 5 children under 7 years old at the time, and I was working long hours to make enough money for us to live on. When I heard the news, my mind went into ‘melt down’, horrendous ‘hallucinations’ of future events began to play out in my mind, what I discovered through NLP, enabled me to begin, slowly at first, to take back ‘control’ of my thinking and my life.

What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming is fundamentally a ‘model of communication and learning’. Discovered my Dr Bandler & Dr Grinder in the early 1970’s.
Neuro, refers to the nervous system: NLP uses the principles and patterns of the nervous system. Linguistics, points to NLP’s understanding that in some ways language is a product of the nervous system, but NLP goes further in stating that language ‘stimulates’ and ‘shapes’ activity deep within
the ‘meaning-making’ patterns of human beings. Programming refers to NLP’s insight into the process of human learning, memory and creativity as functions of the ‘neuro linguistic programs’ present within every human beings, both conscious patterns and unconscious ones ( borrowed from the work of Robert Dilts ).

Why ‘should’ a birth worker learn NLP?


  • You will learn how to develop a deep sense of rapport with anyone, this sense of connection development can become almost instant
  • You will discover a greater degree of flexibility in your use of language, using words and ‘language patterns’ that connect to those you are speaking too
  • You will find that your ‘message’ will be understood by those you want to receive it with little effort
  • You will gain a greater control over your own tendency to think the worst
  • You will Increase you ability to set a goal and see it through to  the finish
  • Your ability to support a woman giving birth will increase
  • Your birth teaching will ‘hit the mark’ more often
  • You will have a foundational understanding of what NLP is (and isn’t)
  • You will know how to ‘break’ personal, persistent habits once and for all
  • You will start to build the skills necessary to support women who have experienced birth as traumatic

How does becoming skilled in NLP lead to all these benefits and more?

To the outside observer the results that some people, skilled in NLP achieve, look like magic....but beneath the apparent effortless work of the practitioner of NLP, is a deeply held insight into the ‘structure of human experience’. This insight, once it takes hold will lead to all the above effects and more, I know this to be true from my experience over 15 years. Using the skills and techniques of NLP brings to the birth worker a way of ‘seeing’, ‘hearing’ and even ‘feeling’, the way others are ‘creating’ their unique experience of the world.
