5 game-changing reasons why Hypnobirthing is worth your investment!

5 game-changing reasons why Hypnobirthing is worth your investment

 

1. IT INVOLVES HYPNOSIS

 

This is the stand-out difference between doing a Hypnobirthing course and a standard antenatal course. Nothing against those other courses (I did one first time round too), but learning self-hypnosis for birth is completely game-changing. This isn’t the weird-funky-chicken Hypnosis thing you see on TV. It is tapping into an altered state of mind for birth. Learning to get yourself into a deep state of relaxation is a skill, and it is also a tool for life.

 

2. LESS NEED FOR PAIN RELIEF

 

Committing to practicing your Hypnobirthing can help you cope better with the sensations of birth. As well as the Hypnobirthing tools, you learn about coping strategies, comfort measures and distraction techniques. The antenatal education around the physiology of birth will also give you a huge understanding of what your body does during labour, and what is normal. This all can lead needing less pain relief in labour!

MORE KNOWLEDGE & AWARENESS  >  less fear  > less tension  > less pain.

 

3. IT CAN SHORTEN YOUR LABOUR

 

Yes! There is actually evidence to show using Hypnobirthing can shorten the time of your labour. This is down to a variety of things – learning how to optimise your hormones, knowing how to work with your body, learning how to relax deeply, knowing how to make baby’s journey through the pelvis easier with optimal positioning, the list goes on. All of these tools can help support the physiology of birth, helping it flow as it was meant to and even shorten your labour.

 

4. IT MEANS YOU KNOW YOUR OPTIONS

 

If you are somebody who likes to feel in control, then a Hypnobirthing course with me will help you understand the things you can absolutely control during your birth. The more information you have before the big day (or night), the more armed with knowledge you go into that birth space with. This means less likely to feel lead by what your care provider thinks is right for you, and instead feel more empowered to make the right decisions for you and your baby. The classic phrase is true: “If you don’t know your options then you don’t have any.”

 

5. IT BENEFITS YOUR BABY TOO

 

Your baby benefits from Hypnobirthing! In pregnancy levels of stress impact your baby. The impact of calm, reduced cortisol levels will influence your baby for the better. Part of Hypnobirthing is practicing tapping into a calm, relaxed state easily. If you do this enough, you and your little one will benefit from this relaxation time and it is also a lovely way to bond and deepen your connection together. Your baby will also benefit from a positive birth experience – how you feel about your birth will probably impact those initial days and weeks of parenting. To make this transition as smooth as possible for you and for baby, you can really prepare and inform yourself about how to make your birth better and all of your choices you may face.

 

You also need to know: Hypnobirthing does not guarantee you a certain type of birth. Birth is largely an unpredictable event. However – it can stack the odds in your favour of a physiological birth… The stats tell us: less need for opiate pain, relief less need for epidural, less likely to have an unplanned cesarean section.
