What is Hypnobirthing?
This is a method of birthing based on the premise that most labour related pain is the result of anxiety and tension within the body, often brought on by fear. Using the powerful breathing and visualisation techniques taught by a Hypnobirth instructor, the mother remains in control and physically and mentally relaxed throughout her labour, allowing her body to work at its best to birth her baby. Hypnobirthing is based on scientific facts and its use in childbirth is particularly useful in changing the negative thoughts attached to labour into positive ones. We know that when a woman is taught to trust her instincts and use the techniques learnt in Hypnobirthing, a positive birth outcome is much more likely to occur, often with less need for pain relief.
Not fully convinced?
You are probably consciously wanting to believe that hypnobirthing is the answer to a peaceful birth but that sneaky little subconscious is trying to convince you otherwise. That’s because your subconscious has been conditioned to believe that labour is something to be feared. Good news is that The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme works with the subconscious to reprogramme your thoughts attached to birth and change those negative feelings into positive ones. This really is interesting stuff based on medical facts, even the most sceptical of people who are certain this wont help, have flipped their negative perception of birth to one that is the complete opposite.
