What is HypnoBirthing™?

HypnoBirthing™ is...

  • HypnoBirthing™ is a complete antenatal program which teaches breathing and relaxation techniques alongside self-hypnosis to be used during  labour
  • These techniques help to remove any fear and allow for a calm, relaxed birth
  • This program will guide you to look forward to having your baby with joy and excitement

HypnoBirthing™ is not...

  • About hypnosis of the type we see on TV shows. The self-hypnosis used brings you to a relaxed state where you are aware but simply tune it all out
  • About losing control. You are in complete control at all times as you have been taught to bring yourself to this relaxed state

What are the benefits of HypnoBirthing™?

  • Fewer interventions; you will feel in control 
  • You are likely to experience a calmer, easier, more comfortable birth
  • It often shortens the length of labour

  • Less need for pain relief
  • Quicker recovery time
  • A happier and more confident mum

When can I start ?

  • It is recommended that you start from week 20-30, as the success of the technique depends on daily practice 
  • If you come across HypnoBirthing™ later in your pregnancy, it is never too late and the techniques can help

Do I need a birthing partner?

  • Yes, your birthing partner is someone who will help and support you on this beautiful journey

  •  Anyone you prefer, just someone you can fully trust to help you achieve the birth you desire
