Hypnobirthing

A natural pain free birth is something every prospective parent should be able to enjoy. Hypnobirthing allows you to learn techniques to empower you to have a positive relaxed, calm and pain free labour, feeling in control at all times.

You may have already experienced labour and not had a positive experience. You may not have felt in control, it could have been pretty scary and painful for you but this doesn’t mean that subsequent labours cannot be the positive amazing experience you deserve.

Hypnobirthing is a unique antenatal program that teaches specific self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques for a more gentle birth that is often accompanied by a significant reduction in pain. Hypnobirthing is not about “training mothers to give birth” when undisturbed we already know how to do that instinctively. Hypnobirthing is about getting rid of fear and allowing our bodies and minds to relax so we can birth our babies gently. Contemporary women in our culture hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth, too often associating it with excruciating pain, thereby causing their bodies to become unable to perform what should be a normal physiological function. Hypnobirthing is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow women to use their natural abilities to bring about safer and more comfortable birthing.

Hypnobirthing techniques - such a visualising birth in a positive light - are used to ease the process of giving birth and aim to ensure the mother remains calm and controlled from the moment she goes into labour.

Hypnobirthing is described as a mindfulness practise that helps to alleviate any stress or discomfort. Benefits include shorter first stage labour, less intense pain, a shorter hospital stay and less fear and anxiety after the birth of the baby.

It’s also thought staying calm helps your body release hormones like oxytocin - which encourages contractions - and endorphins, which numb pain and help you feel good.

Hypnotherapy and Fertility


An increasing number of women are using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to help improve their fertility. The techniques used in hypnotherapy help you to remain calm and relaxed, whether you are trying to conceive naturally or undergoing IVF treatment. The ability to deal with stress when you are trying to get pregnant is very important as stress and anxiety are understood to be a significant contributing factor in infertility.

Fertility therapy combines hypnosis and other mind-body approaches to help identify and address the emotional, mental and physical factors which affect fertility and reduce the negative effects of infertility.
