About hypnobirthing

Katherine Graves explains: "Hypnobirthing enables a women to work with her body, which is naturally designed to give Birth.

It releases the fear and negativity that she has been programmed with from an early age and replaces it with calm confidence.

A mother who uses hypnobirthing will often say that giving birth was the most wonderful and empowering experience of her life".

What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is a tried and proven method that provides women with tools to give birth in a peaceful, confident and beautiful way.

It takes into account the psychological as well as the physical wellbeing of the mother, the birth partner and the new born, whether it is in a birth centre, hospital or home.

The hypnobirthing course involves specialised breathing, relaxation and visualisation.

Through those simple techniques women are then able to let go of fear, tension and to recognise birth as a normal process for low risk women as well as women who require medical intervention in certain situations.

A lot of our belief culture is that labour is painful and challenging. Hypnobirthing allows couples to rethink that belief.

Benefits of Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is for all women including women who, because of special circumstances, find themselves in the category of high risk.

The effectiveness of hypnobirthing

There are a range of experiences from women who experience a completely pain free birth to those that did the classes and learnt the techniques, but still found labour painful. For some women, whilst they still experienced pain, they found hypnobirthing gave them a sense of calm and trust, even if things didn't go to plan as hoped.

It is worth knowing that there is nothing to stop women in deciding on the use of pain relief at any time in labour and can still use the hypnobirthing tools.
