What is hypnobirthing?

I can’t tell you how many times I’m asked this question. How many times people ask me “oh what do you do as a job?” And then I respond with “I’m a hypnobirthing teacher” the looks in peoples faces is almost like I’ve committed a crime LOL. Like I’ve made up a job title and that in some sort of weird magician well guess what hypnobirthing isnt woo woo.

It’s a complete childbirth preparation course and it teaches you how to get yourself into a  deep relaxed state during pregnancy and birth  and how positive thinking can completely adapt your birth to become a more calm and gentle birth experience.

Hypnobirthing also teaches you techniques such as visualisation which sound strange but visualisation is so powerful. For example, imagine your baby swimming around in your tummy, moving their tiny little fingers and toes and sucking on their thumb… imagine the colour of their little eyes and their curly or straight locks (how does this make you feel) I BET it made you smile. It’s so powerful as it allows you to deeply connect with your baby and promotes the bonding process.

Hypnobirthing teaches you how to e can use affirmations to help you release fear and tension during labor. The more we tell ourself something the more we believe it e.g. I will try to do it … change to… I will do this! The word “try” leads us to believe that we WONT.

Hypnobirthing also involves education about the physiology of birth and how our body works in labour and how we can work with our body to help our body in the birthing process.

Hypnobirthing often involves the birth partner, which is vital! Your birth partner knows you better than anyone. They are your safe person your safe space. Teaching them how to support you during the birthing process can massively improve the birth because you are singing from the same sheet! Taking a hypnobirthing course together also allows you to bond together and bond with the beautiful baby inside of you.

Overall, hypnobirthing aims to transform the birth into an empowering journey, empowering women to approach childbirth with confidence, trust, and relaxation. Giving birthing women a voice allowing them to know their birth rights and how to advocate for themselves and their baby.

Hypnobirthing changed my birthing experience and my life! I use the techniques learnt in hypnobirthing every single day and I even teach my little ones the breathing techniques which is actually adorable haha! Any tantrums I’m like “stop take a moment and let’s just breathe” within 30 seconds we are back to a level playing field.

Honestly I cannot tell you how incredible hypnobirthing is and I would love to take you and your birth partner on a journey to a positive birth experience. Whether this is your first baby or second baby… come and join me at my boho cosy Norwich Norfolk studio for a 1-1 hypnobirthing course or a group hypnobirthing course.
