What is Hypnobirthing?
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program is uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth companions. It is the natural approach to childbirth! Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly. Birth can, and should be, a positive experience – one that you will always want to remember.
A modern, uniquely Australian hypnobirthing program designed for contemporary Australian familes…..
When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach birth with a positive mindset, knowledge, good support and tools – then birth can be a beautiful and empowering experience.
The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use to let go of fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience, one where you are in the drivers’ seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.
The concept of Hypnobirthing is not new, but rather a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years.
You will learn breathing, relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis techniques, along with knowledge and tools to assist you to make well informed decisions along the way.
Of course, natural birth is not a new concept! Our ancient mothers and sisters birthed naturally without the use of anesthesia or many of the interventions that are common today. However, we also recognise that medical science can sometimes save lives. If you do require interventions, or a caesarean birth – the use of self-hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques leading up to, during and after the birth can be of great advantage to both yourself and your baby.
You deserve special care as you make this exciting and unique journey with joyous anticipation and confidence.
Classes are run regularly in the Western Suburbs and can be attended at any stage of your pregnancy, however 20-30 weeks is the ideal time to start. Alternatively private sessions can also be arranged. Parents find the hypnobirthing techniques easy to learn and down to earth.
Regardless of how many weeks you have to go contact me to find out how Hypnobirthing Australia™ can help you to direct the course of your own positive birth journey.
