Strong Mum. Confident Dad. Calm Baby
Hypnobirthing conjures up images of pregnant women being put into a trance-like state, in fact it is a series of deep breathing and deep relaxation techniques which you and your birth partner are taught to self-administer.
Hypnobirthing works in two ways
When your body is relaxed, more endorphins (natural painkillers) are produced and more Oxytocin hormone flows round your body.
When you are relaxed you are working with your body, not against it, making birth calmer, easier and more manageable, without drugs or interventions.
You'll learn how to release the fears and anxieties you may currently have about giving birth, and how to overcome previous traumatic births.
Hypnobirthing provides you with a way of putting aside any worries or problems so that they don't interfere with the process of birth. It teaches you how to stay calm and focused, no matter what occurs. It gives you the self belief that you can do it!
Hypnobirthing encourages you to let your body do what it can do, naturally. As a result your baby will be born into the world in a safe, calm and happy way.
