HypnoBirthing® is as much a
philosophy as it is a technique. Based on the work of Dr.
Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician who first
forwarded the concept of natural birthing, this method
teaches you that in the absence of fear and tension, pain
does not necessarily have to be an accompaniment of
You will gain an understanding of how the birthing hormones
& muscles work in perfect harmony - as they were designed
to - when your body is sufficiently relaxed. You will learn
how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the
resistance that fear creates; and you will learn to use your
natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable
When you have your baby using HypnoBirthing®
, you will not be
in a trance or asleep. What you will experience is similar to
the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are
engrossed in a book, a movie, or starting at a fire.
Most women have doubts that they will be able to achieve
this focusing and have a peaceful birth... and most women are
pleasantly surprised to find out that they "have what it
takes" to achieve this. So, even if you have doubts
about your ability to have an easy hypnobirth, remember that
these fears are a result of conditioning by our society. You
were born to know how to experience birth, but taught
something entirely different. Your body already knows how to
do this! We will help you remove all the baggage that you
have learned about pain and suffering. You deserve to know
how birth was meant to be experienced!
you will be conversant and in good spirits - totally relaxed,
but fully in control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of
your body's surges; but because you will have trained yourself
to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the
degree to which you will feel the surges. You will experience
birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, free of the
fear and tension that prevents the muscles of your body from
functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state,
your body's natural anesthesia, endorphins, replaces the
stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
