Put it this way, not many people would rock up to run a marathon without any proper training or preparation – so why would you do that when you come to give birth?
Preparing for birth is just like preparing to run a marathon – you need to practice, have a positive mindset, know how to manage those nerves, understand how your body works and be prepared to go the distance, calmly navigating whatever obstacles you encounter. Obstacles which include stress, self doubt, pressure from caregivers, anxiety, fear and not knowing where or how to start... Hypnobirthing addresses all of these, and more!
What is Hypnobirthing?
The best birth experience for you - Hypnobirthing provides you with the knowledge and the tools to you prepare for the birth experience which suits you.
Any type of birth scenario - You can use Hypnobirthing throughout your pregnancy and during labour in the birth centre, on the delivery suite, during a caesarean, a home birth or induction.
Releasing fear and anxiety - Hypnobirthing works by helping you to release fear day by day to be replaced with feelings of calm, and learning to trust your body, your instinct, and your baby.
All about pregnancy and birth – We don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes ‘everything you need to know’ about your body, labour, birth and beyond!
A set of techniques - You learn how to relax, to breathe, to move and visualise.
Special time for you and your birth partner – Practising Hypnobirthing together brings you closer. A hypnobirthing partner is a huge asset in the birthing room, and many mothers say, ‘I couldn’t have done it without them.’
Confidence to make decisions – You learn about your rights, your choices and how to make balanced, informed decisions about your pregnancy and birth. It is amazing to feel this empowered.
Stress-busting - Hypnobirthing helps your body to produce oxytocin which can help you manage stress hormones such as adrenalin which should lead to a calmer birth.
Your own personal Cheerleader - I will be by your side every step of the way, cheering you and your birth partner on along your Hypnobirthing journey.
Best laid plans - Hypnobirthing does not mean unexpected things won’t happen. A birth free from medical interventions or complications can never be guaranteed. However, learning to relax and stay calm may help you feel more in control during labour if things don’t go to plan.
A Hypnobirthing course is a worthwhile investment in you and your birth partner before baby arrives – There will seem like a thousand things to do, things to buy but don’t forget about you and your needs.
A Bodhi Mama Hypnobirthing course is not an ‘off the shelf’ course, a lot of time behind the scenes goes into ensuring it feels personal and fully addresses your specific circumstances on top of a minimum 12 hours time spent together.
If cost is an issue, and or you’d like to discuss spreading the payment, you only need to say and I’ll make it work for you.
