This “true” Hypnobirthing story of a “real” woman’s experience of birth, quoted in the Cosmopolitan Pregnancy Magazine, came from a mum who had learned Hypnobirthing techniques in one of our courses.
Below is her story as published In Cosmo Pregnancy Issue 097
“MY BIRTHING experience was easy, positive and drug-and fear-free”
“I TOOK A COURSE IN HYPNOBIRTHING”
“I had a wonderful pregnancy, but in the back of my mind was always the thought that this was all too easy, things were going too well, and the birth was going to be a nightmare. So after a friend told me about hypnobirthing, 1 decided to attend some classes at the Sydney Wellbeing Centre (www.sydneywellbeing.com.au).
Hypnobirthing taught me how my body works, relaxation techniques, how to release negative emotions and thoughts and how to utilise my mind-body connection. When I told people I was taking the classes, they told me that it was a gimmick, but 1 believed in it, and I’ve never looked back.
As it turns out, my labour progressed quickly. I used techniques I’d learnt in my classes – such as slow breathing and visualisation – and just three hours later we met our baby boy. My birthing experience was easy, positive and drug- and fear-free, plus those techniques now help me sleep and deal with pain a lot better than I used to.” Belinda, 29
