What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing really is just a fancy way of saying positive birth! The Positive Birth Program is a comprehensive antenatal education program designed to leave you feeling empowered and excited for the birth of your baby.
Over time fear has been driven into women surrounding birth, this includes but not limited to from a young age growing up, birth stories from family/friends and various media outlets. Birth should be a joyous occasion and one you look back on and feel good about.
Hypnobirthing focuses on deep relaxation techniques, positive mindset tools, knowledge about the mind and body during birth, breathing techniques for each stage of labour, visualisations, massage and touch, support tools for birth partners, releasing fears and all you need to know in the weeks/days leading up to and during birth.
Hypnobirthing also strongly focuses on self-hypnosis, something you're already doing multiple times a day! Hypnobirthing can be used by anyone. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and we use this to help reprogram/condition our subconscious mind surrounding birth so you can eliminate fears/reservations, release endorphins and go into your birth feeling ready and positive.
In my classes I prepare you using four key elements - knowledge, tools, support and preparation so that you can face any challenges that birth may bring.
Hypnobirthing is not all about having a quiet, drug free natural birth and nor do I promise this will be the case. Every birth is different and unique to each woman. All women are wired to birth, our bodies were made to do this, we need to trust our innate wisdom to do so. Remembering also that it is ok if you choose to have pain relief or other interventions so long as you are informed and feel in control of the situation and your body. There is no failing at birth, no matter the birth you end up having.
