Hypnobirthing & Antenatal. Is it right for me?

You might be wondering if a hypnobirthing course is right for you. You may be considering an antenatal course without the #hypnobirthing element if you don’t really understand what hypnobirthing is all about. Maybe you’re worried about being #hypnotised and clucking around like a chicken, or that it’s only for hippies. I can assure you its not stage hypnosis and it’s suitable for everyone! When you practice the #relaxations you’ll be in a calm state, somewhere between wake and sleep. You will feel safe, secure and #happy.

Hypnobirthing teachers welcome sceptics, as long as you practice the #techniques and come with an open mind I can assure you you’ll be surprised and delighted by the outcome.

Hypnobirthing #births tend to be shorter, more #comfortable, calmer, involve much less #medical intervention and they are a memorable experience for all the right reasons. It is not about achieving a certain type of birth, it’s about being prepared for what ever may happen. Hypnobirthing is not only useful for home births, people use the techniques in hospitals, birth centres, for births with medical #intervention and drugs, even for #caesarean births. The techniques are useful for all situations. However you birth your #baby you can still have a lovely and #positive birth if you put in the time to practice.

So what actually is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is made up of lots of little things that, put together, make a very big difference. The more of the little things you do, the better. It is not a method of #pain #relief. It works on the premise that pain may not be there in the first place. It is not a bunch of techniques for birth. It’s a system of letting go and is done in the preparation. It’s letting go of fear, assumptions, preconceptions and to build #confidence each day. On the birth day itself you simply let your body do what it’s designed to do. You don’t need to DO anything. If you’ve done the practice then it’ll work! It’s certainly not a fad, hypnotherapy techniques have been used for centuries within medicine. You will learn about how the subconscious stores the information you practice during the course.
