A lot of people are skeptical of the term hypnobirthing at first, they may have images of someone with a pendulum trying to turn you into a chicken! I can safely say none of that will be happening.

Hypnobirthing is a scientific approach to birth which enables mothers to experience a calm and positive birth.  We look at how the body reacts to the mind and therefore how we can train our minds to relax for our bodies to follow, – without a chicken or pendulum in sight!.

They say that knowledge is power, therefore hypnobirthing aims to equip you for every scenario that could happen on the big day. It is about  teaching you how to get into a safe state of relaxation. It is also about being prepared physically, emotionally and mentally,  thus helping make the right decisions for you and your baby.

What are the benifits of hypnobirthing?

  •  Shorter labour
  • Less intervention
  • Higher apgar scores
  • Less feelings of fear
  • Calmer babies
  • Easier to breastfeed
  • Birth partner is fully engaged in the process.
