These techniques and tools that work to help make your labour a comfortable, easier, confident and less painful experience for you and your baby. This also involves less birth interventions.

Many HypnoBirthing Mums report pain-free labour…

motherBabyHypnobirthing® is taught worldwide and has been in existence for over 18 years. A complete birth education programme it teaches the basics of how natural birthing unfolds. At the heart of the teaching is the principle that a relaxed birth is a rewarding birth. Simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing exercises are taught.
Hypnobirthing® does not mean that you will be in a trance or asleep. Rather you will be able to chat and be in good spirits-totally relaxed but fully in control. You will always be aware of what is happening during your birthing. You will have conditioned your mind to relax seeing birth as a very normal physiological event of the body.
Through a very simple programme of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, hypnotherapy, visualisations, mindfulness, affirmations and education, women learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation, and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that nature intended.
As you embark on this journey of pregnancy ( whether 1st or 5th!) you will start to realise that positive birthing is less about luck or genetics and more about education, effective preparation and planning, confidence, intuition and what we… women are born to do. With this programme you will have the tools  and techniques to get the birth you want and deserve.
