Hypnobirthing is the use of hypnotherapy techniques, which can be self induced, to assist relaxation and pain management during childbirth.
The HypnoBirth program aims to remove all of the fears associated with birth and turn the feelings into enthusiastic anticipation. Whether you choose the individual or group program you will receive all course material, which includes an abundance of things for the birthing partner to do prior to the birth and during labour. This does not mean that the birthing partner has to participate. If you choose to use the HypnoBirth program on your own this is also fine, two CDs are provided that can be used daily and many other special tricks that you can use alone.
The program empowers you to take back the control of your baby's birth. It is not surprising that we often lose control in this fast paced, super technological world that we live in. We go to school and obey the teachers, we go to work and obey our managers, we become adults yet still allow our parents to influence us. Everyone has their speciality and it is very rare for us to turn around and question let alone say no. The HypnoBirth program restores your confidence so you feel that it is ok to liaise with the medical staff. 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.
Clinical research has shown that confident, relaxed and positive mothers have better birth outcomes. During the Fertility2Birth HypnoBirth program you will learn how to relax using hypnosis so that during your labour you can, if you choose to, go into the deep relaxed state that hypnosis can be. Many people do not realise that hypnosis is actually a heightened state. When in hypnosis, although very relaxed you will be able to think, feel and behave as normal. You will have focused concentration and be in full control of your body. The HypnoBirth program is however not all about hypnosis so, even though it is strongly recommended, you will not have to be under hypnosis at any point if you choose not to be. Remember this is all about you having the birth of your dreams.
