Hypnobirthing is growing in popularity worldwide, it’s been huge in The States, the UK and Australia for a while and now we’re finally hearing about it here in Sweden, but what is it exactly…
Hypnobirthing, when taken as a course is a complete birth preparation method for both the pregnant person and their partner/support person. You don’t need to do any additional birth preparation courses but if you do, they will compliment one another nicely.
Hypnobirthing is a combination of deep relaxation, breathing techniques and knowledge about the body, birth and birthing environment. Together these create a fantastic foundation for exploring birth.
Unique to Hypnobirthing is fear release through self hypnosis and reframing negative assumptions/thoughts about birth. It also has very beneficial effects during pregnancy and the time after the birth.
Is Hypnobirthing for me/us?
Hypnobirthing is for ALL types of births and birthers; hospital births, homebirths, c-sections/belly births, births with all pain relief, no pain relief and everything in between… It’s for anybody who wants to take charge and prepare for a positive birth experience.
Hypnobirthing doesn't promise you a 'perfect' birth but does give you many tools that can help you create the best conditions for having the birth you wish for.
The great thing is, even when the journey to birth changes which on occasion it can do, Hypnobirthing supports you to stay calm and confident, and to have a positive experience!
