What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing is a holistic approach to birth preparation. It is based on the philosophy that modern mothers must prepare emotionally, as well as physically to achieve a gentle, natural birth.
Mothers work with their body, harnessing the body’s own natural painkillers which are many times stronger than morphine. The techniques help you achieve your best birth, whether you are planning to have a home birth, a hospital birth, a natural birth or any of the other options available.
Birth partners are taught techniques to support the mother, and take an active part in the birth and birth-preparation.
Watch a HypnoBirth
Sometimes HypnoBirthing can sound too good to be true but as they say ‘seeing is believing’. For me this video is a perfect example of a woman going deep within herself, remaining completely calm and working with her body while being supported completely by her partner and their midwife. The video is completely family friendly viewing too, no nudity or closeups, and no shouting or screaming, just a lovely calm HypnoBirth.
The mother is so in control you can hear her calmly giving instructions to her midwife and to her partner just moments before her baby is born.
