The HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing and stress free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth more comfortably.
You will learn to use your body's own natural anaesthesia and lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medicated pain relief. HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain which can cause fear.
HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
How is the birth companion involved?
The Birth Companion of the mother’s choice is an integral part of the HypnoBirthing® experience. He or she practices with the mother in helping to prepare for deep relaxation.
During labour the Birth Companion guides the labouring mother through hypnosis prompts, relaxation techniques, deepening methods, and visualisations, provides comfort measures, and joins in welcoming the new baby, often by receiving the baby as he/she emerges.
