Our HypnoBirth programme will teach you calming, relaxation and visualisation techniques to empower you to work effectively with your body throughout labour and birth. It will also teach you ways to reduce the sensation of pain and enable you to gain more and more confidence in your abilities.
When you learn to relax and stay calm you can begin to trust your instinct and ensure that the birth hormones work at their optimum levels to help your labour progress smoothly and positively. This is an amazing program consisting of 3x two hour sessions in which you will learn many tools to help you have a relaxed, pain free birth. Using Hypnosis to help with labour has been shown to reduce the length of the first stage of labour by hours and the second stage from an average of 50 minutes to 37 minutes. 50% of parents using the HypnoBirth programme have experienced an entire labour lasting less than 5 hours!
The HypnoBirth program aims to remove all of the fears associated with birth and turn the feelings into enthusiastic anticipation. Whether you choose the individual or group program you will receive all course material, which includes an abundance of things for the birthing partner to do prior to the birth and during labour. This does not mean that the birthing partner has to participate. If you choose to use the HypnoBirth program on your own this is also fine, we provide you with a download that can be used daily, and many other special tricks that you can use alone.
The program empowers you to take back the control of your baby’s birth. It is not surprising that we often lose control in this fast paced, super technological world that we live in. The HypnoBirth program restores your confidence so you feel that it is ok to liaise with the medical staff. You will realise that it is ok to ask why something is being done and if you do not like something have the confidence to question it.
Clinical research has shown that confident, relaxed and positive mothers have better birth outcomes. During the HypnoBirth program you will learn how to relax using hypnosis so that during your labour you can, if you choose to, go into the deep relaxed state that is hypnosis. When in hypnosis, although very relaxed you will be able to think, feel and behave as normal. You will have focused concentration and be in full control of your body. The HypnoBirth program is however not all about hypnosis so, even though it is strongly recommended, you will not have to be under hypnosis at any point if you choose not to be. Remember this is all about you have the birth of your dreams.
It is worth remembering that anything a pregnant woman takes into her body will also be taken in by her baby. This includes anything given during labour. Using the HypnoBirth program the chances of you requiring medical intervention including pain relief are reduced dramatically. This means that not only will your body heal at a much faster rate after the delivery but your baby will be brought into the world drug free. Sometimes however things do not always go to plan. The program also helps you to be aware of this and how to deal with any feelings that may occur if your labour does not go exactly as your Birth Plan stated.
Our hypnotherapy for birth programme provides you with:
- Easy, effective techniques to manage discomfort
- Calming and relaxation techniques
- More confidence in your ability to achieve the birth you want
- Shorter labour times
- Reduce need for chemical pain relief
- Reduce need for forceps, ventouse delivery or caesarean section
- Reduce likelihood of complications
The course consists of 5x 50 minute sessions and includes 9 downloads and a workbook to accompany the sessions, which you will be able to use at home leading up to the birth.
Whether you anticipate your baby’s birth with excitement and anticipation or you fear and dread it, we are here to help you and your birth partner to have a wonderful birth experience.
Childbirth is a natural process that a woman’s body is designed for – so why then do some women have such a tough time? Grantly Dick-Read found, way back in 1933 that if a woman feels fear and anxiety during labour, this translates into tension and pain during the birth. He also identified that “fear is directly responsible for many of the unpredictable complications of otherwise normal labour”.
Every woman and every birth is different so with that in mind we can help you to manage your own personal experience by teaching advanced self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques which help with pain management and boost trust in your body so you feel calm, confident and in control.
