What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing... It's an odd word. I've debated changing the name of my business to something less 'odd', but a lot of people know it and look for it. On the other hand, a lot of people are confused about it. What exactly is Hypnobirthing?
It's an antenatal course
First, it's a course that any pregnant person can take. It's an antenatal course. But it's not the same as most other antenatal courses. We talk a lot about how the mind can affect the body, how your body knows what it's doing, and how any birth can be a positive experience. And we do a bit of hypnosis.
It's a set of tools
If you take a Hypnobirthing course you'll come away with practical tools that you can use to prepare for birth and during birth. Your partner or support person will also get tools they can use to help both them and you, and you'll both probably find that these tools will be useful as you become parents too. Hypnobirthing tools can actually be used in all sorts of circumstances!
It's all backed by science
Many people think hypnosis is all woo-woo and weird, but everything we talk about in class is backed by science. Once you learn how your body works, it all makes logical sense.
It includes hypnosis but it's so much more
We do do a little hypnosis in class, and you will get MP3s to download and listen to at home, but this type of hypnosis is very relaxing and easy. No swinging pendulums and mind control! And there is so much more to Hypnobirthing than just hypnosis.
Hypnobirthing is suitable for anyone. So why not give it a try?
