Hypnobirthing is a calm, positive and natural approach to childbirth. Hypnobirthing can help you to have a calm relaxed and comfortable birth as nature intended. Hypnobirthing eliminates the fears you may have about childbirth, and it empowers you and your birth companion with the knowledge, tools and support to help you stay calm and confident. When you are calm, your body releases positive hormones which help you to relax, so you and your baby can naturally and beautifully work together and do the job they are designed to do, often removing the need for medical intervention.
These tools also help you to positively deal with whatever turn your birthing will take, helping you to refocus and calmly adjust to changes, so you can have a birth experience that is one to cherish.
The use of hypnotherapy in birthing is not a new concept. In fact, it was first introduced by an English obstetrician, Grantley Dick Read, in his work in the 1930s. He went on to publish the book, Childbirth Without Fear in 1942, which become an international bestseller.
You and your birth companion will learn techniques of self hypnosis, which you will be able to call upon to assist you, not only before and during the birth of your baby, but also in the future. These techniques are tools for life. You are preparing for the birth of your baby, which is one of the most amazing and cherished moments of your life. I believe it is truly invaluable to invest time in your mental and physical preparation.
