What is Hypnobirthing?

First things first – there will be no watching of pocket watches. Zero ‘look into my eyes’ or flapping your arms and clucking like a chicken. Forget your Derren Brown shtick (as entertaining as that is). Hypnobirthing is about preparation for birth. You will learn about how vital relaxation is to experience birth in a positive way.

Hypnobirthing is logical, simple, practical and effective. The course provides a complete antenatal education, learning about the physiological side of labour and birth, and the hormones and muscles involved. From the psychological side you’ll learn relaxation and breathing techniques and the surprisingly easy way into self-hypnosis.

The female body is incredible. You’d think it’s almost been designed to give birth; certain hormones and muscles all working in sync to make this possible. The environment at birth and your mindset can both hinder or ease these natural processes. This technique teaches you how to utilise and harness the body’s preprogrammed settings for a happy, relaxed birth. Equally you’ll learn how to manage stress, let go of fears or anxiety around birth and let the body get on with the job in hand; the calm and safe arrival of your baby.
