Giving birth is a natural thing to do.
Mothers using hypnobirthing enjoy the birth experience with the help of hypnosis for relaxation.
The classes are 8 hour duration taken over four 2 hourly classes by arrangement with the Practitioner
It is recommended that the course start at around the 27th week of pregnancy, but can be taken later.
Couples are taught how the woman’s body works in harmony with her baby.
This knowledge dispels the myths surrounding birth and removes the fear and tension which is the main cause of pain in childbirth.
The expectant mother and a birth partner are taught self-hypnosis, and other hypnotic techniques to use during the birthing experience making it stress free.
You may be a mother-to-be who would like to attend the classes but are afraid of being hypnotised because of the myths surrounding hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of physical and mental relaxation. You relax into a safe dream like state (trance) then accept positive suggestions which you remember and act on them as they are for your well-being.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis; you have to consent for it to happen.
No hypnotheraptist no matter how experienced can make you do anything against your will or that morally you would not do.
I can't make you run around like a chicken with no head unless you want to!
"I felt I'd benefit a lot from hypnotherapy to keep me calm and to practice over the weeks to keep calm about the birth "
"I listened to your recording yesterday and that really helped, so thank you!"
"It was brill, thank you!"
"I highly recommend this method of preparation"
