Advantages of HypnoBirthing

Eliminates fear of birthing before during and after birth.  Fear has a huge impact on the mind and body of a birthing mum is it is crucial to overcome this before birth. Reduces, often eliminates the need for chemical intervention, episiotomies and other intervention including c-section. Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving the mother fresh, alert and awake when birthing her baby. Shortens the thinning and opening stage of labour, often by several hours. Helps a family to bond even before the baby is born Almost entirely eliminates postnatal depression. Babies are born alert and calm not traumatised, they are often better adjusted and happy and as a result eat and sleep better Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful experience that nature intended.

A baby that is born into a peaceful environment free of drugs is calm and more likely to breastfed straight away, making establishing feeding easier.

About HypnoBirthing®

  • Do you want to be in control of your birth?
  • Are you looking for an easy, comfortable, and yet drug-free birth?
  • Are you interested in using self hypnosis for labour and childbirth?
HypnoBirthing® is the answer.

Now in its seventeenth year, HypnoBirthing® is a complete antenatal education.
Our birthing classes are intended to help you have the most natural childbirth possible, using easily-learned self hypnosis and breathing techniques. Whatever kind of birth you're planning - homebirth, hospital, birthing centre or whatever.

HypnoBirthing® can help.

What is HypnoBirthing®?

Contrary to its name HypnoBirthing® doesn't mean you'll be asleep during your labour. Hypnosis in HypnoBirthing® relates to a state of  deep relaxation.  It is easy to learn and with practice you will be able to alter and control your level of relaxation throughout your labour.HypnoBirthing® teaches you how to develop your natural ability to release endorphins -  the body's natural painkillers.

It is a sad fact that so many women experience anxiety about birthing their babies, they fear a painful birth and the ironic thing is that on the whole the more anxious the mother is, the more likely she is to require pain relief. Often enough women who birth at home tend not to be anxious and require less pain relief. This is probably because they feel they are in a comfortable and safe environment and able do to as they please.  Natural Birth HypnoBirthing® shows you how anxiety and tension can cause the disfunction of the uterine muscles, but most importantly  it teaches you how to release this tension.  The body cannot be anxious and relaxed at the same time.  You can be one or the other but not both.

Total relaxation of mind and body is key to  supporting you during the birth of your baby. Using hypnosis you learn how to tap into the part of your mind responsible for storing your emotions, fears and anxieties associated with pregnancy and birth and deal with, and release, any negative thoughts.

HypnoBirthing® techniques are methods of self induced deep relaxation.  Anyone can learn this very easily.  With practice you can slip in and out of this comfortable state during your labour allowing your body to function naturally and easily. If you are birthing at home you will have the comfort and security in your own surroundings and be able to move about as you please. Natural Birth HypnoBirthing® shows you and your birthing partner how you can  create the same mood of comfort and homeliness in a hospital delivery room.

HypnoBirthing® encourages a special integral role for your birthing partner and your birth preparation is undertaken together.  Your birthing partner can be anyone that you wish. ( I am a registered "Doula" and can be your calm constanct partner should you wish.)It should be someone who can give you the  support you deserve during your labour. You and your partner can be a real partnership as you will learn the special breathing techniques and visualisation exercises together. Your birthing partner will also  be taught the special soft touch massage that will encourage the flow of endorphins throughout your body.

If you have chosen a waterbirth or using yoga for pregnancy there doesn't have to be an either or, HypnoBirthing® can complement it. 

HypnoBirthing® is suitable for home or hospital births and some of the techniques can be useful for a planned caesarian section

Why HypnoBirthing?

HypnoBirthing is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. Birthing should not be an excruciatingly painful event, when a mother is properly prepared physically, mentally and emotionally she will be able to remain deeply relaxed during birth and experience a comfortable often pain-free birth.

HypnoBirthing classes are antenatal classes, which prepare couples for a calm, comfortable, joyous birthing experience. The classes involve a small number of couples in a comfortable home environment. Totally different from normal antenatal classes the focus is on understanding birth and empowering couples to chose the birth they really want.  The key to a positive birth experience is preparation of the mind and body, Hypnobirthing teaches women how to stay deeply relaxed and in control of their birth, reducing the need for pain relief and intervention, making birth a positive empowering experience, better for Mum, Dad and Baby.

More about HypnoBirthing®

HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method as seen on the Channel 4 programme "Richard and Judy" and in national and local press. Preparation is the key to a calm, comfortable often pain free birth.  HypnoBirths are safer, the need for intervention is greatly reduced and the experience by mother, baby and birthing partner is a wonderful positive birth.

When can I book?

A HypnoBirthing course can be booked from 14 weeks of pregnancy up to 39 weeks, ideally 20-30 weeks.  But regardless of how many weeks you are - a course can be arranged to suit your time scale and availability, just call for a chat. Ideally you should aim to complete the course by 37 weeks.  If possible start the course around 28 weeks, which will give you plenty of practice time.  However couples have had intensive private courses at 39 weeks and as a result had wonderful calm and comfortable births using HypnoBirthing techniques so whatever your situation please call me to discuss options.
