HypnoBirthing is a complete birth education programme in which you will learn all about what your body is really capable of, and is naturally designed to do. You will no longer be frightened of birth, but you will be amazed by the wonder of birthing and actually look forward to it!
In the absence of fear or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment to labour. You will not be in a trance or asleep, you’ll be totally relaxed, and fully in control. You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free from the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replace the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
The aim is to enable women to have a more fulfilling birth by removing fear and tension, using a combination of education, hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis to facilitate deep relaxation during labour. During the course you will explore how the body works in labour, and why this process should not cause extreme pain. You’ll learn about the hormones that are essential to labour, and more importantly how to facilitate the release of these hormones.
