After the excitement of finding out I was pregnant with my very first baby I couldn’t help but feel nervous & anxious about giving birth. It was consuming me, which I realise now was a blessing as it put me on the most incredible journey of hypnobirthing and I am so excited to be able to share this with you all today.
I am sure there are so many of you mamas and mamas to be that can totally relate to this anxiety associated with giving birth and this is where I get really excited. Because my birth wasn’t luck. I wasn’t lucky, I did so much preparation just like I would do for any other big event in my life and if I can achieve a calm & relaxed birth, I know that you can to!
So lets start from the very beginning…
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing, in a really unconventional description is a positive birth!!!
When you and your birth companion are able to approach your birth without fear and with all of the knowledge and education that you will gain from hypnobirthing your experience will be extremely empowering and positive, one where you are completely in control, just how it should be.
We give you all of the tools and techniques in order to to prepare you for a calm, safe and relaxed birth experience no matter what turn your birth may or may not take. Our program is designed for both natural and also caesarean birth.
The topics/tools we cover through out Hypnobirthing are;
- Language and positive birth affirmations
- Self hypnosis
- Breathing techniques
- Relaxation techniques
- Acupressure points
- Fear Release
- Birth music, aromatherapy and smell
- Positions for birthing
- Reprogramming our minds
- Mind/body connection
- Maintaining a positive mindset
All of these topics/tools listed above will help you achieve a meditative state, we call this your birth bubble, the best place to be when welcoming your baby into the world. This state of mind will enable your body to open up without resistance and release all of your happy hormones. These happy hormones replace the stress hormones which can cause your uterus to constrict and create tension and pain prolonging dilation/birth progression.
If your birth was to take a turn you will have all of the tools to bring yourself back to your birth bubble. Your birth partner will also be educated on ways to help you through out your birth. This is not only a great support for you, but they will feel extremely helpful and empowered from being a part of your special experience too.
And of course ( by far my favourite) you will also gain a great understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony, just as they were designed to.
It never ceases to amaze me just how miraculous the women’s body really is, we never question it when growing our baby for 9 months, we simply trust the process. So why do we question birth and our ability? Its simply incredible what our bodies can do when we are relaxed and not riddled with fear! So you can imagine with just this education alone how much hypnobirthing can truly help you.
Education and knowledge is absolute key!
Giving birth can be so transformational when given the right support.
So if you are fearing birth just like I did, know that you are not alone and that you have options. Do not let that fear affect what is going to be the best day of your life.
Every women deserves to achieve the birth that they have only ever dreamt and the best possible start to motherhood and nothing makes me happier than knowing that I can help women with their most miraculous and special moment of their life.
Love & Light
