What does it do?

My job as a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner? Well I’m a vehicle through which I can offer some afraid mums-to-be some encouragement, some guidance and a whole lot of support, through my experience, through HypnoBirthing®, through a personal network of parents-to-be all in the same position. These are all the things I so lacked as a pre-natal mum, now how can that be anything but positive?”

It can provide you with a better birth. HypnoBirthing® is Education for childbirth. It will teach you techniques to help you eliminate the fear and tension that causes pain in birthing.

How does it do that?

HypnoBirthing® teaches you to understand your pregnant and labouring body. You are talked in good detail through conception to birth, strains on the body, imbalances in hormones, how your muscles are used in childbirth and how to work with them, instead of against them. Understanding the body is the first step towards feeling in control, and therefore calm.

It promotes self awareness and self-control. The training in self-hypnosis assists you in reaching a level of relaxation and calm at the times when you need it most. The aim? To stop your body tensing at a time when release is all important.

HypnoBirthing® is practical too. We talk you through birth plans, spending the all important one-on-one time with you and your birth partner to encourage and assist you into making sure you get to birth the way you want. It encourages you to be emotionally strong. Understanding your body during birth is empowering, helping mum (and dad!) stay calm and focused. The shared experience of learning HypnoBirthing® with your partner, or birth partner, leads to understanding and support of your needs during this incredible time, leading up to the most important moment of all – meeting your baby for the very first time.
