(Affiliated with the HYPNOBIRTHING® Institute)
Teaching mothers and birth companions techniques for safe and satisfying
birthing through guided imagery, visualisation, and special breathing.
HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. It is a rewarding,
relaxing, stress free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies
should come into this world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy.
When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally and
spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier,
more comfortable, and often, even pain free, manner.
Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, and
education, HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that
allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in
safety and with ease.
HypnoBirthing® is based on the belief that severe discomfort does not need to
be a natural accompaniment of birthing.
THE HYPNOBIRTHING® ADVANTAGE:
THE EXPERIENCE OF HYPNOSIS IN HYPNOBIRTHING:
Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration – a state of mind and body in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel, and the choices we make. It can actually control pain.
There is no magic to achieving success with self-hypnosis. Almost anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation and redirected focus.
When having your baby with HypnoBirthing®, what you will experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or staring at a fire. You will be conversant and in good-spirits, totally relaxed but fully in control. You will be aware of your body’s contractions, but will be able to determine the extent to which you feel the surge. You will experience your birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without fear and tension that cause pain. Your body’s natural anaesthesia (endorphins) will replace stress hormones that create pain.
When it is time for your baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved.
