Hypnobirthing techniques are very popular with pregnant mothers, because it helps to prepare their bodies for a natural, fear free childbirth.
Your pregnancy can be a busy and exciting time in your life, although, many women tell me that as their due date gets closer, the more worried they become about the actual birth.
How about you?
Do you have silent worries tucked away in the back of your mind?
Well informed and well prepared hypnobirthing mums say they were calm and in good spirits, yet fully in control of their birth experience. You can be too with the help of your very own hypnobirth.
Understanding what your body’s needs are and how to meet those needs, is the first step in having a natural calm birth.
Endorphins – body’s natural opiates and pain relief – are available to birthing women as they let go of their fears. Just as fear and tension breed more fear and tension, calm and relaxation breed more of the same. Hypnobirthing techniques are the key to a peaceful, calm birth.
Planning a hypnosis birth at hospital or at home?
Whether you are planning to birth at a hospital, birthing centre or at home, hypnobirthing can be of help.
At the most basic level, a hypnosis birth gives you the knowledge you need about the physiology of birth, and the ability to trust yourself to get out of your body’s way and give birth in the way nature intended.
Hypnobirthing classes prepare you for a shorter, more comfortable birth and are designed for both you and your partner to attend.
The best time to attend a hypnobirthing course is between 22 and 34 weeks of pregnancy, giving you ample time to practice self-hypnosis and hypnobirthing breathing techniques.

Is pain free birth possible with hypnobirthing?
Let’s be real here, hypnobirthing techniques can help because natural births are not sensation-free births. When a runner finishes a marathon, she crosses the finish line, perhaps in pain, tired and sweating, but she also feels an endorphin rush, elation at having accomplished a great feat. It takes training and preparation, but it is worth it.
It is the same during natural hypnosis birthing. There may be feelings of pressure, tightening or intensity – but the body isn’t doing something to you; it is doing something for you. By allowing your body to follow the path that was set from the beginning of time, babies are born more alert; mothers are more empowered and recover much quicker. Again, it takes hypnobirth training and preparation, but is well worth it.
Read what other women say about their hypnotherapy birthing experience…
I had plenty of time to get myself well and truly into the hypnobirthing zone and ultimately my active labour was relatively quick and very successful! And yes I do look back on it fondly, and with a sense of pride in all 3 of us! Rebecca, Kris and Evie
The first stage of labour just felt like period pains and was manageable. I went into a bath for the second phase which wasn’t painful at all – I just felt pressure. The noises I made came as a bit of a surprise to me though! Clair, Rene and Zoe
The hypnobirthing classes help you learn that you too can have a shorter, more comfortable birth. A birth that you can look back on fondly.
In the hypnobirthing training, you will learn, among other things; breathing, self-hypnosis and deep relaxation, to allow your body to take advantage of nature’s own analgesic. Attending the hypnobirthing classes and training your mind and therefore, your body, to relax during the months before your due date, enables you to automatically go into a deeply relaxed state, allowing your body to do what it knows to do – what it has known how to do since the beginning of time.
Not only will you learn to use the power of your mind through self-hypnosis during your hypnobirthing classes, but you will gain effective pain-management and pain relief skills.
- Hypnobirthing training teaches you to learn what a contraction feels like and the best way to manage each one.
- In your hypnobirthing classes you will practice specific breathing methods for each stage of birth and explore better positions; read more here about what you will learn in a hypnobirthing class.
- During your hypnobirthing course, your partner will learn some easy yet very profound ways to support you during your birthing. Maybe to your pleasant surprise your partner will become the next “birth whisperer”.
- Hypnobirthing training helps you to learn how to position your baby to prevent a posterior birth.
- In your hypnobirthing classes you will learn how to avoid having stitches, how to avoid being induced and much more.
Nature is wise, so learn to draw on that wisdom to give birth in a most natural, comfortable way. When a woman is healthy and her baby is healthy; her desire for a natural, calm birth can become a reality.
Hypnobirthing stories from birthing couples
I am truly grateful and appreciate receiving phone calls and emails from a growing number of happy couples, who say: “Hypnobirthing does work!” Read dozens of pages of birth stories from couples thrilled with their births, who report being very happy with what they’ve learned during the Hypnobirthing course.
Benefits of using a hypnobirthing CD
A hypnobirthing CD is useful to not only help overcome fear of birth, but also severe symptoms of morning sickness, as well as prenatal and postnatal depression. Also, using a hypnobirthing CD is a quick and natural method to help a pregnant woman give up smoking during pregnancy without any adverse side effects.
If you are able to imagine your perfect birth and everything in this article just seems like common sense, hypnobirthing is the childbirth education method for you. Hypnobirthing techniques can help you birth calmly!!!
