HYPNOBIRTHING

So you've heard it mentioned, this term "Hypnobirthing" ...but what actually is it?  And how can it help you?  To put it very simply - Hypnosis is a way of getting out of your own way, to stop the fear and anxiety from taking over, and to meet any challenges you face with more confidence and calmness...doesn't that sound ideal for pregnant women?  But why our courses?  

Our classes are for you if you want to prepare for an amazing and positive birth, however it unfolds, and want a toolbox full to the brim of knowledge and techniques for your and your birth partner to use to make sure you get the best birth for you and your baby.  The 3 sections of our classes each contain invaluable teachings for use during pregnancy and labour itself, including the amazing pelvic balancing techniques, and we believe these are the key components to getting the most positive and powerful birth:

  • The mind/body connection, and how to use it in pregnancy and labour

  • How fear impacts labour, and what to do to stop it

  • How the sympathetic nervous system can be quietened down

Our classes run over 3 or 4 sessions covering the above, and split into the following key areas:

1. Balance your Mind - the work needed to be done to help clear the cobwebs, resolve any previous birth experiences, update limiting beliefs, build your confidence and calmness and those fabulous triggers for use in pregnancy and birth for instant ease - this is the "getting out of your own way" part...  We'll build in your birth partners voice, particular words, smell, colour, music and touch as triggers for relaxation, and you'll practice them so that they become automatic in pregnancy and labour.

2. Understand your Body - learn the physiology of birth, how our babies journey out into the world, the impact of our pelvis, muscles, tendons and importance of preparing your body for birth using pelvic balancing tools amongst other techniques to reduce the likelihood of interventions...  "FTP"? There's a balance stretch for that.  "Baby too high"?  There's a technique you'll learn to help baby out.  Want to avoid tearing?  We teach you the importance of your pelvic floor & vagina for this.  

3. Choosing the right birth for you - taking time to understand & making your choices for birth, understanding the maternity systems, understanding & building relationships with your care providers, evidence based birth information, all stages of labour, techniques for comfort in all stages of labour and tools for any type of labour to ensure however your birth evolves, you can shift your sails and feel positive and confident in your new direction.  

The birth of your baby is and should be a positive and beautiful experience.  With the training and experience of our teacher you can rest assured that you are in safe hands, and you can look forward to amazing results from our classes, a more relaxed and confident pregnancy and a positive and empowering birth.
