Hypnobirthing A unique way to prepare for child birth
The day you discover that you are pregnant is a magical moment, and its’ the moment the connection between you and your bay becomes even deeper then you could ever have imagined, and sometimes that are just no words to describe the feeling! It’s just magical!
When you share your pregnancy news! You will experience different responses from family and friends; from elation to horror stories, labor pains, medical interventions, C- sections, epidurals not always working! and the long hours that lie ahead for you! Then it gets topped with a long recovery time frame after giving birth!
We are indoctrinated from a very young age that giving birth is a distressing and painful experience that ALL women will have to go through it! if they want kids and yes, it may well be said, in order to put teenagers off having sex at a young age!
However, by the time young girls mature into adults, the seeds of childbirth have been well planted and the damage is done! They have been filled with the beliefs that pregnancy, birth and even parenting can be painful, difficult and challenging!
Mother nature, NEVER set out to intend that giving birth be an ordeal or something to be fearful of!
“Nature designed your body to give birth efficiently and comfortably!”
Our culture, books,media and stories have programmed us form a very early age that childbirth is a negative experience instead of it being a empowering experience of life!
We have NINE MONTHS not just for pregnancy! but also to prepare our minds and bodies for an empowering birth experience!
Hypnobirthing is antenatal training from the inside out!! That is simple, logical and profound. It is for both parents and teaches you how your body works along with relaxation techniques, self - hypnosis and breathing exercises!
This involves training the mind to believe that a woman’s body has the ability to bring a baby into the world in a calm and gentle manner without the need for any pain relief or medical interventions. A lot of preparation goes into conditioning the body and mind through mental rehearsal over the weeks and months in the lead up to the big day!
Hypnobirthing does not mask pain, it reduces it down considerably and puts you in control of your body in a way that prepares you to accept and embrace whatever childbirth brings in a confident and empowered manner.
The mother is always aware of what is happening and is confident in her body’s ability to handle the birth, and empowered to the extent of feeling very much in control from a positive perspective.
Hypnobirthing is embraced in the Maternity Hospitals in Ireland, along with home births too!
Softer vocabulary is also used in hypnobirthing from CONTRACTIONS to Surges and Waves of Energy and from PUSHING to Breathing your baby down through you.
What to Expect when engaging with Hypnobirthing Techniques?
A Hypnobirthing Guide will coach both mother and birth partner on self-empowering techniques from; affirmations to visualisations, reading positive birth stories shared by others who have used hypnobirthing techniques.
Hypnobirthing is all about engaging in a positive mindset about the birthing experience and breathing is a crucial element taught in the classes to both mother and partner so that they help with relaxation and through surges along with the release of oxytocin! The love hormone!
