Understanding the word ‘hypnobirthing’

The word ‘hypnobirthing’ can often conjure up the wrong images. But really it is one of those words that explain just what it does on the tin! The hypno, of course, comes from hypnosis – and so it’s hypnosis for birthing… So while that makes sense, why are so many people still put off by it, thinking that it is something that isn’t quite for them because they don’t fit that ‘group’? Trust me when I say that hypnobirthing is for anyone and everyone.

It really isn’t just for the yummy-mummy, lentil-lovers. It doesn’t put you in some altered state of reality, making you do things you wouldn’t normally do. It’s simply about having a deeper understanding of what your body is doing during labour. Realising that there are techniques and positions that can help optimise your labour, to make it comfortable and, in many cases, faster than those labours that don’t use these simple and effective tools.

A hypnobirthing class will also teach you all that you need to know about late pregnancy and labour and all the possible scenarios that could present themselves during your labour and birth. By having the information ahead of time to digest what this means; realising that there are benefits and risks to all procedures even the ones that are so routinely carried out, might make you think twice. A hypnobirthing course will prepare both you and your birth partner, to make the right decision for you and your baby.

So if you’ve been put off by media, friends and family that labour is a painful and horrible event, it’s not true. Most hypnobirthing mothers will tell you that their labour and birth was calm and comfortable. Those who really relax and trust in nature, usually do so without the need for medical intervention.

Let me help you to achieve this for your birth.

A hypnobirthing course is usually 10-12 hours of teaching, and this can be done either through evening or weekend classes.

If you live near Romford, Essex, I would love to help you achieve a calm and confident birth. You can find details of my classes on my website.
