Have you heard about hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing has been around for many years ever growing in popularity , yet only now is getting the full recognition it truly deserves. There are many forms of hypnobirthing and this can make it hard to fully understand how to approach it for your own birth.
Hypnobirthing is a name to describe learning how to control how you feel stress in labour. Stress in the mind and stress in the body. Stress is the enemy of birth and can lead to long labours, increased discomfort and unpredictable intervention. When we reduce stress our bodies will work more efficiently and our emotions are balanced resulting in a more enjoyable experience. Many women report a more comfortable labour and birth with a feeling of control and positivity.
These tried and tested techniques include relaxation, self-hypnosis and deep breathing exercise. You will learn antenatal theory, such as birth positions, birth preferences and what to expect during your labour. Your Birth Partner plays an integral part in your birth experience and hypnobirthing fully prepares them for their experience.
I have supported hundreds of couples prepare for birth using hypnobirthing and I used the techniques myself at my own births. Hypnobirthing is not just for natural birth and can work alongside any birth plan at home or hospital.
My Fiancé and I took a one to one Hypnobirthing course with Leonie to help us prepare for the birth of our first baby. Leonie really helped us to understand the process of labour and her support and advice really helped me to release a lot of the anxiety I was feeling leading up to the birth, and to be calm once labour had started and throughout. I had a 14 hour labour with all but the last 90mins at home with only a little bit of gas and air in the final hour. Leonie’s ongoing support for new Mum’s is great too - her monthly coffee mornings have been a real life line for me providing a point of focus and a place to meet other likeminded Mum’s. Thanks Leonie
