Demistifying the word ‘hypnobirthing’

Today I want to vent how misleading the world ‘hypnobirthing’ is to describe what it is. The hypno, of course, comes from hypnosis – and so it’s hypnosis for birthing… But even still that conjours up all the wrong images.

It’s not some hippy, tree-hugging cult thing whatsoever. It doesn’t put you in some altered state of reality, making you do things you wouldn’t normally do. So you can tell your birthing partners that they don’t need to run for the hills!

It’s simply about having a deeper understanding of what your body is doing during labour. Realising that there are techniques and positions that can help optimise your labour, to make it comfortable and, in many cases, faster than those labours that don’t use these simple and effective tools.

So if you’ve been put off by media, friends and family that labour is some horrific ritual that you have to pass through to hold your baby, it’s not true.

Hypnobirthing mothers often say that they had a calm, comfortable birth – usually without the need for medical intervention – where they welcomed their baby with ease, confidence and happiness.

Are you in those final weeks before your baby’s birth? Perhaps you’ve now stopped working and feel like you have a lot of spare time on your hands? Come along to this group to prepare yourself for your baby’s upcoming birth. Any last minute questions or niggles, will be answered. Didn’t do any pre-reading and need to know what to expect? We can cover that too.

We will always spend a significant amount of the session to cover relaxation exercises and breathing techniques, to prepare you for a calm and empowering birth experience.

And we will even do a little practice of those all-important pelvic floor exercises!!

Finally, meet other mums in the area whose babies are due around the same time as yours. Build yourself a network of friends, experiencing the nuisances of those early weeks.

Pre-booking is essential as places are limited. To secure you place email classes@magicalbabymoments.com or call on 07764 680 215

All sessions include free tea/coffee (decaf, of course!) and yummy biscuits!
