You know your baby has to come out (and there really is no going back at this point) but you have no idea how this baby is going to come out of your vagina!
What if you were let in on a secret…..and once you knew the secret, you no longer felt terrified of giving birth? Once you knew the secret, you were actually really excited about the birth because you know you have totally got this!
The secret to having a birth where you feel totally in control throughout, where your birth partner knows exactly how to help you at each stage of labour and you understand all the things that are happening to you.
The secret to a birth where you look back and feel amazed how well you coped, how empowered you felt, how in control you were.
You want to shout about the secret from the rooftops so that every birthing woman knows about it!
Well, that secret is hypnobirthing. You may have heard of it before and been put off by the name. It all sounds a bit ‘out there’ and not your cup of tea? Well what if I told you that hypnobirthing is all very simple and based on human physiology?
There is nothing ‘hippy dippy’ or ‘woo woo’ about it. It is just about understanding how your body works during labour. And learning ways to cope with it. Simple!
The benefits of hypnobirthing have been proven with clinical research: Women have shorter labours, less reported pain, less need for induction of labour, a lower incidence of post-natal depression, reduced need for surgical delivery (Caesarean or forceps/ventouse).
