Women all over the world have been hearing mostly negative and frightening stories about their friend’s, relative’s or even stranger’s birth experiences, which automatically create subconscious fears associated with the natural physiological body activities related to birth. Our job in Hypnobirthing is to teach, remind and reassure women of the incredible and instinctual ability to birth confidently and easily. Model of care is important in the decision making process before the birth takes place, therefore we discuss the choices you have so you can make informed decisions for you and your baby in an empowering and conscious way, with minimal intervention.
From the very beginning of the course we work on creating a positive mind set, placing emphasis on the natural and unlimited ability of women to give birth. We make space for the birthing partner to step in and support the mother in the beautiful process of labour and birth, through techniques such as guided hypnosis and light touch massages, which help with releasing endorphins (our natural pain killer and relaxant and stronger than synthetic morphine). Informing fathers / birth partners of the importance of their full presence and how they can be of support can be essential for a gentle, calm and positive experience for both mother and baby.
Overall, the Hypnobirthing Philosophy has helped hundreds of thousands of women to take full control of their experience of birth and go through it as the driver rather than the passenger on the journey of their own baby’s birth… more informed, inspired and empowered. Feeling more comfortable when giving birth (home, birthing centers or hospitals) and ultimately trusting that their bodies, know how to bring babies into the world in a calm, gentle and positive way with minimal intervention.
