How does it actually work?
Hypnobirthing uses techniques which include breathing, deep relaxation, visualisations and positive affirmations. These techniques help to reduce your levels of stress, anxiety and fear, and so promote the release of the wonder hormones, “endorphins” and “oxytocin”, allowing your body to give birth efficiently and comfortably the way that it is designed to do.
Hypnobirthing gives you the tools you need to release any fear and tension that you may be holding on to that could impact on your having the type of birth that you desire.
Our Bump Birth Baby Hypnobirthing course teaches you deep relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to prepare your mind and body for the birth, which will allow your body to take over and birth your baby as nature intended. The course focuses on techniques for mum and her birth companion to ensure the birth of baby is a joyous experience you share together whether it’s your first, second or subsequent birth.
