Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing

Our HypnoBirthing programme will teach you calming, relaxation and visualisation techniques to empower you to work effectively with your body throughout labour and birth. It will also teach you ways to reduce the sensation of pain and enable you to gain more and more confidence in your abilities.  When you learn to relax and stay calm you can begin to trust your instinct and ensure that the birth hormones work at their optimum levels to help your labour progress smoothly and positively.

This is an amazing programme consisting of three two hour sessions in which you will learn many tools to help you have a relaxed, pain free birth. Using Hypnosis to help with labour has been shown to reduce the length of the first stage of labour by hours and the second stage from an average of 50 minutes to 37 minutes. 50% of parents using the HypnoBirthing programme have experienced an entire labour lasting less than 5 hours!

If you choose to use the HypnoBirthing programme on your own this is also fine, we provide you with two CDs that can be used daily and many other special tricks that you can use alone.

The programme empowers you to take back the control of your baby’s birth. You will realise that it is ok to ask why something is being done and if you do not like something have the confidence to question it with medical staff.

  • Easy, effective techniques to manage discomfort
