Childbirth & hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy for childbirth greatly reduces the fear of giving birth allowing the expectant Mother to look forward to this special time in her life with joy and excitement. Techniques are learnt to enable the Mother to feel more in control of her birthing experience, working with her body with a sense of calm. We hear many 'horror' stories around birthing which affects how we feel about giving birth, many hospital experiences are retold in a very negative manner which the 'unconscious' mind absorbs, creating fear and tension around birthing. Hypnotherapy for childbirth returns birthing to the natural, peaceful experience nature intended, greatly reducing the need for pain relief and medical intervention.
Clients can be seen on a one to one basis at the clinic or alternatively couples can be seen as part of the HypnoBirthing® package run as a course over 2-3 weekends.
What you will learn:
HypnoBirthing® (package run as a course over 2-3 weekends)
HypnoBirthing® was developed 15 years ago in the U.S. and is a childbirth method that uses hypnosis to eliminate pain and fear from the birthing experience. Pioneered by Marie Mongan, an American hypnotherapist who combined Dr Grantly Dick-Read's (an English obstetrician and founder of the Natural Childbirth Trust) and her own knowledge as a hypno-anaesthesiologist to create "HypnoBirthing®".
How Does it Work?
Through classes reinforced by audio and video programs, pregnant women learn to achieve deep relaxation by practicing methods of visualisation and self-hypnosis. These techniques are also taught to birth companions, who learn to help deepen and support the birthing mother's level of relaxation during birthing. By learning techniques to manage the tension caused by fear and anxiety, the labouring mum approaches the birth feeling calm, confident, aware, and in control.
