Q: What are the benefits of Hypnobirthing antenatal classes?
The benefits of Hypnobirthing classes are; alleviating pain and discomfort in childbirth and reducing fear, stress and anxiety for a shorter, more comfortable birth. You will enjoy learning Hypnosis to replace fear and anxiety with calm and confidence.
Q: Is Hypnobirthing suitable for natural birth or home birth only?
Hypnobirthing is of help whether you are planning to birth at a hospital, a birthing centre or at home. Hypnobirthing is not meant to replace the valuable assistance obstetricians and midwives can provide. Should special circumstances arise, the midwives are on hand to deal with a mum who is relaxed, focused and in control, rather than someone who is panicky, in pain and out of control. Hypnobirthing can help to make the whole birthing experience easier and more comfortable for yourself, your baby and everyone involved.
Q: What is the Father’s or Support Partner’s role?
Many father’s or support partner’s are unsure of their role. Men may have fear surrounding their ability to stand-by and watch someone they love experience discomfort in childbirth. The HypnoBirthing course will help to overcome those fears. Partners will learn useful techniques that will reduce discomfort and help the birthing woman experience a truly satisfying birth. It’s the partners love and support that can make a true difference. He can be your “birth wisperer”.
Q: Does Hypnobirthing actually work?
Yes! Obstetricians, GPs and Midwives are big fans of hypnobirthing, they say it makes everyone’s role easier, more pleasant and enjoyable. There is no doubt in my mind however, that the biggest fans of hypnobirthing are the women themselves. Women with first-hand experience of calm, pain-free births have gladly shared their positive hypnobirthing stories.
