Benefits of HypnoBirthing

When we get enquiries about HypnoBirthing, many couples ask us ‘Why should I choose HypnoBirthing’ over other birth classes? Or are HypnoBirthing classes worth it?

When babies already come with a long list of items to purchase – car seats, a cot, nappies, clothing, books.  What are the benefits of HypnoBirthing for me and my family?

And we totally understand this question.  It’s not one of the cheaper birth courses!

As experienced birth educators, we know that regular antenatal classes with a birth plan, just isn’t enough to support new families.

We know that giving birth and welcoming home a new baby is one biggest transitions in a womans life.  It is not just the birth of a baby, it is the birth of a mom and a dad as well.

When labor starts, a lot of women can go into a stress mode.   Will this hurt? what if I can’t do this? Panic can start to rise.   Other women’s birth stories and a history of pain/fear/anxiety by association kicks in, and women start to question if their bodies can endure labor.

Muscles tighten, adrenaline is released.  Our bodies go into fight or flight mode.

Unfortunately, adrenaline and stress has been shown to slow labor.  Tighter muscles = more pain = longer labor.

This is where our HypnoBirthing classes come in.

HypnoBirthing is one of the most comprehensive birth courses you will ever attend. This course educates women and their birth partners to know exactly what to expect at each stage of labor and how keep their adrenaline low and oxytocin endorphin levels high,  to find their calm.

Oxytocin optimizes labor, birth, and postpartum for mother and baby.  Also known as the ‘love-drug’, it reduces pain, ensures your body can birth well, and sends all the love you need when meeting your new little bundle of joy.

 

 So, How does HypnoBirthing help me achieve this?

  • Massage techniques.
