HypnoBirthing is a satisfying and positive method of Childbirth Education.
We guide and support families to reconnect with their bodies and allow the birthing of their babies to happen instinctively, and to do it in a peaceful and gentle way.
It is a Childbirth Education program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical well-being of the birthing person, their birth partner and the baby, regardless of context.
HypnoBirthing empowers and educates families for a positive birth experience.
The HypnoBirthing program is built around 6 areas:
The HypnoBirthing Premise
For most of our lives, we have been overwhelmed with negative stories of other women’s births and experiences, and this gets worse when you announce you are expecting a baby.
Usually, everyone wants to share with us the horrors of giving birth when they find out we are pregnant; even strangers. Through our lives, we have been taught that excruciating pain has to happen in order to birth our babies, and because of this, most women are fearful and stressed about giving birth.
This fear of childbirth can cause your body to become tense and rigid, which in turn, won’t allow your uterine muscles to work in harmony and your cervix to thin and open;plus it creates unnecessary pain and could create the need for unnecessary interventions.
Through a very well thought out and comprehensive Prenatal Education Program and with the use of self-hypnosis and education, healthy women learn to dismiss fear-based stories, misinformation and birthing myths, and they are supported while they learn that birth is normal/natural. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world, the same way their bodies knew how to grow and nurture their babies during their pregnancy.
The families that are drawn to HypnoBirthing are families that believe in their body’s ability to birth, and that know there is a better way to birth their babies. They believe that it is possible to birth their babies in a calm and gentle way, regardless of the setting (in a hospital, birthing centre or at home) or circumstances surrounding their baby’s birth.
