WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS HYPNOBIRTH?

  • You will feel informed and prepared for pregnancy, birth and parenthood, which will in turn expel your fears and give you confidence.

  • You will feel supported by a strong collective of women who are not only professionals in their fields, but Mama's themselves.

  • You we feel able to communicate your wishes confidently with your caregivers, knowing you have fully understood your options and choices.

  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth because you will understand how to relax your body and support it in labour.

  • Your baby will arrive in a calm and relaxed environment because you breathing techniques will keep you both calm.

  • Length of labour is often much shorter with Hypnobirthing Mama’s because you understand the stages of labour and know what to do.

  • Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births, usually because Mama's have an understanding of why birth can be painful and so ensure they do the right things to limit the sensations.

  • Mama’s often bounce back quicker after the birth due to the reduced physical impact on the body during birth.

  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central role in the birth so that they feel included and supported during this special time for both of you.
