Why Hypnobirthing rocks
Imagine… you are in a beautiful candlelit room, you are resting peacefully on your birth companion's shoulder. It is quiet, peaceful. You are totally relaxed!
Imagine… as a new surge arrives, you are calm and in control. The surge rises and passes like the ocean swell and you see yourself riding this beautifully rounded wave with ease. You are confident and calm.
As the time approaches to meet your baby, you listen to your body as it knows exactly what to do. You surrender. You follow its lead. You guide your baby safely out to the world.
You are calm and relaxed, your baby is calm and relaxed.
This is Hypnobirthing! A calm and positive way to approach and prepare for your birth, no matter how it unfolds.
“Hypnobirthing isn't all about hypnosis, I like to call it a fancy name for positive birth”
Hypnobirthing is a Complementary Therapy for Labour and Birth program (CTLB) based on the philosophy that birth is a normal, natural physiological function of the body.
The theory is that by having a good understanding of how the body works during pregnancy and childbirth, how fear disrupts this natural process and what you can do to eliminate these fears and tensions, you can experience a positive and comfortable birth.
During our classes, you and your birth partner will be taught how to cultivate the right mindset and given tools and strategies such as self-hypnosis, breathing and relaxation to facilitate the best outcome possible for you and your baby.
Hypnobirthing will also help your birth partner to understand the birth physiology and how it affects you. Your birth partner will be empowered to take a very important supporting role in your birthing journey. Your birth companion will be the rockstar who'll have your back every step of the way!
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
– Barbara Katz Rothman

5 Underrated Tips Guaranteed To Help You Avoid Childbirth Nightmares
“There is a power that comes to women when they give birth. They don't ask for it. It simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it”
– Sheryl Feldman
Complementary therapies for Labour and Birth program such as the Hypnobirthing Australia course have been scientifically proven to lower the risk of interventions and C-sections for women with low-risk pregnancy and decrease the need for pain relief during labour. You can read the full study results of the research conducted by Kate Levett, C A Smith, A Bensoussan and H G Dahlen here)
Hypnobirthing is a collection of tools, techniques and knowledge designed to prepare our birthing mothers for a calm and positive birth.
The “hypno” part of the program refers to Hypnotherapy. You will learn self-hypnosis as one of the tools to help you achieve a state of deep relaxation during pregnancy and birth.
Research has shown many benefits to having a calm and relaxed birth and the use of self-hypnosis during labour should lead to:
- More comfortable labour by decreasing or eliminating pain
- Reported and observed increase of ease and comfort during labour and birth
- Decrease of the length of labour
- Lower caesarian section rates
- Decrease of pain relief medication usage
- Higher emotional satisfaction
- Higher breastfeeding success rate
- Reported and observed calmer and more settled baby at birth
What will you learn?
As soon as you are pregnant, it is almost impossible to stop people telling you about their horrific birth experience, and if they don't have one of their own, they will tell you about someone else's story.
We just can't escape it!
Your body and your baby work very well together to give birth.
Stories like these, which most often comes from well-meaning people, have the potential to make us doubt our ability to birth, creating a lot of anxiety and fear around your pregnancy and birth.
During our hypnobirthing class, you will learn that your body and your baby work very well together to give birth. Your body is designed to do this.
You and your birth companion will learn powerful tools to help you get in a relaxed state during pregnancy, birth and beyond. You will find these tools useful for life!
During the course, you will learn about the normal process of birth and in the event where your journey deviates from this normal process, you will have enough coping strategies to meet any turns your birth may take with calm and serenity.
I invite you to watch these 2 videos. They are both great testimonials of what is possible when you are well-prepared and have the right support around you.
