Hypnobirthing simply put is about creating a positive birth experience.
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program is uniquely designed and absolutely one of its kind. It is up to date, modern and specifically designed for Australian couples. It is about teaching you to allow your body’s natural abilities and processes to birth your baby. Giving you the knowledge about your birth and the processes your body goes through in order to allow your baby to be delivered into the world. It also aims to provide you with this knowledge so that you can feel empowered to make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy.
This program will teach you to access a ‘toolkit’ that will assist you at every point in your labour and even throughout your pregnancy by focusing on releasing and letting go in order for you to meet any turn your birthing takes with ease and peace. With an emphasis on visualisation, relaxation techniques and the role of the birth partners this program is a comprehensive childbirth education.
The ‘hypno’ part of Hypnobirthing refers to self-hypnosis which is a deep form of relaxation. This is a powerful part of this program as it allows the birthing mother to relax into a meditative state all the while remaining conscious and fully aware of her surroundings. During the birthing process, women are more in tune with their body and by relaxing into a state of self-hypnosis women are able to calmly and confidently meet whatever turn their birthing takes often resulting in less interventions.
This program will also help you release any fears you may have to promote an overall feeling of empowerment in your body’s ability to birth as well as anticipation for a positive birth for you and your baby. This coupled with the self-hypnosis aspect, a practical ‘toolkit’ and the support of the birth partner is what sets Hypnobirthing apart from other childbirth classes.
