What is Hypnobirthing?!
Sounds a bit hippy dippy doesn’t it? Unfortunately it’s just a rubbish name! Hypnobirthing is not ‘just’ about breathing your baby out and I’m definitely not able to hypnotise you – don’t worry you won’t be made to cluck like a chicken in my classes!
Instead, hypnobirthing explains why you were literally MADE to do this, and how birth can be an incredibly empowering and amazing experience once you know your stuff!
Hypnobirthing is in fact a full antenatal course jam packed with scientific information.
Its for all births and all people. Not just the home births, or just the unmedicated births – I will show you how you can use hypnobirthing to your advantage in any situation and will support you to achieve a positive birth.
It helps you prepare emotionally and physically for the birth of your baby, and enables you to feel empowered, strong and without fear.
On my course you will learn the biology behind birth (the science, the birthing process, the hormones), your birth rights (so you can make informed decisions that are right for your family), all of your options (such as your environment, birthing positions), learn how to create a birth plan and how to prepare for all scenarios. You will also learn how to apply to the power of positive thinking, positive visualisations and utilise breathing techniques to keep you focused, calm and in control.
It's really about changing your mindset about birth – so moving away from fear and what can ‘go wrong’, and focusing on how you achieve a positive birth, whatever that might look like for you.
It also prepares your birth partner how to advocate and confidently support you with your birth. This is key because your birth partner has a big role to play & can make a massive difference to your birthing experience.
Hypnobirthing also teaches you how to relax, in the 21st century we’re typically not very good at relaxing and switching off, so with practice, hypnobirthing teaches you very simply how to switch off on cue, and use this to your advantage in pregnancy and birth. It really is a game changer and can be used throughout life, it’s particularly useful in the fourth trimester which we also cover in our sessions!
Ultimately hypnobirthing gives you all the knowledge, tools, and power to birth however you damn well want. It’s your body, your baby, your choice.
