Hypnobirthing is a course to teach you and your partner about the birthing process, and learn relaxation techniques, specialist breathing and visualization exercises, and gentle massage techniques.  Once learned, these skills last for a lifetime, not just for the birth of your baby. You will also learn about the power of the mind through positive thinking; powerful hormones to assist you during labour; how to communicate effectively with medical staff; watch dvd's of birth in different environments; an opportunity to raise questions; discover how to care for your baby immediately after the birth; and lots more.

When you are in a calm and relaxed state your body is more able to progress in labour, in a way it was designed to do. This will give you the confidence to achieve an empowering and positive birth experience.

Research has shown some of the benefits of Hypnobirthing are:

  • Women in a hypnosis group were shown to have ‘a better childbirth experience…’ (Werner A, et al 2013 a randomised control trial).
  • Lead to a reduced need for pain relief (Cyna AN, McAuliffe GL et al, 2004 – British.J. Anaesth.).
  • May lead to a shorter labour (Jenkins and Prichard 1993).
  • In a study 84% of women using Hypnobirthing have progressed to a normal birth compared to 64% of the normal population. (Royal Wolverhampton NHS trust -2012).

Also the study showed 25% of the normal population had Caesarean births compared to 8% in women using Hypnobirthing.
