For many people the term 'Hypnobirthing' is worrying as it conjures up images of people being made to do things outside their own control. This is absolutely not the case.
Hypnobirthing is a term given to the techniques taught to pregnant women and their partners to enable them to achieve a deep state of relaxation and calm. This state of calm and relaxation then allows the natural hormones of the birthing process to flow, which helps them to achieve their birth confidently and calmly. When people are scared and frightened, they produce adrenaline which blocks the effects of the oxytocin and endorphins which are the hormones neded for birth.
So, rather than remove control, by informing and enabling Hypnobirthing helps people to stay in control and empowers women to achieve the birth they want.
Over the course I will work with you both to develop strategies, like a 'toolkit' for your birthing. Using breathing techniques, deep relaxation and massage I will give you the skills to help cope with your birthing day.
There is nothing complex about the different elements of the techniques I teach, all that is required is a commitment to practising the things which work for you to help you achieve a lovely, deep state of relaxation. Once you have done that the birthing sorts itself out!
