So what is Hypnobirthing?
'A natural approach to a safe, easier, more comfortable birthing.'

Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and, often even pain free manner. Through a well-thought-out program deep relaxation, self-hypnosis and education, Hypnobirthing returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease. Hypnobirthing is based on the belief that severe discomfort does not need to be a natural accompaniment of birthing.

In the mid-seventies Scientists discovered that the body was able to create it's own alternative to painkilling drugs, endorphins. Hypnobirthing teaches you how to enter into the tranquil natural state which promotes the release of endorphins, which are 200x stronger than Morphine.

  • Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain-Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
  • Reduces, and often eliminates, the need for chemical anaesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions.
  • Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving the mother fresh, awake, and energised as she brings her baby into the world.
  • Shorthens the thinning and opening phase of labour by several hours and allows the birthing mother to utilise the natural pulsations of her body to breathe her baby down to the crowning stage, rather than pushing for long, exhausting periods of time.
  • Reduces the risk of pelvic floor damage.
  • Brings the mother, the baby, and the birthing companion together in a wonderful prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal bonding experience.
  • The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
  • Almost entirely eliminates postnatal discomfort and "baby blues".
  • Babies are better adjusted and happier, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines.
  • Mothers don't run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing.
  • Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that nature intended.
