What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a well-known, logical and effective form of antenatal preparation. It prepares the mother-to-be, baby and birth partners towards a positive and empowering birthing experience.
You already have a body created for birth. But there can be a lot of fear and negative preconceptions about birth, preventing it from working effectively. The Hypnobirthing theory is that by having a good understanding of how the body works during pregnancy and childbirth, how fear can disturb this natural process and what you can do to eliminate these fears and tensions, you can move towards feeling more informed, calmer and confident about giving birth.
The combination of breathing, deep relaxation and visualisation techniques, combined with positive thought and language, serves to reduce stress, anxiety and fear – and as a result – reduce pain.
