Birth has the potential to be the most amazing, wonderful experience you may both have in your life. Hypnobirthing seeks to provide the woman with calmness, confidence and control prior to and during her birthing experience, and to include her partner as fully as possible in their supportive role.
Self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods are used to prepare mind and body for birth, boosting confidence so you manage, rather than fear, childbirth. It is about reaching a state of deep relaxation, maintaining perception of control over the process and developing a positive attitude. It is about changing the expectation of birth.
It is natural to have some doubts about your forthcoming labour but Hypnobirthing is about eliminating some worries and managing others. It provides you with the tools to have a positive and easier birth experience.
You can start your Hypnobirthing at any time during your pregnancy, especially if you have worries, anxieties and fears building. It is best to deal with them as early on as possible. However, having one or two sessions close to your due date is still very valuable, so do call and we can adapt the sessions to ensure that you are prepared as best as possible.
